  1. OK. The floorplan helps a lot. Are your W&D on the shared wall with your Dad's room? If so, here is what I would consider doing: Leave your laundry room as is. In your Dad's room, I would put a stackable W&D on the other side of your laundry's wall butting up against where the five stairs are, or as close as possible to allow entry/chair lift. That way, the plumbing is right there, and maybe you can tap into the dryer vent, too (I have no idea if that's even possible, though). Then, to the right of the W&D closet (when looking at the plan), I would put a kitch
  2. This is not as crazy an idea as you might think~~ Would this just mean that you would have five steps to get to the laundry and it could be shared by you & your Dad? I can't remember if you said this was your laundry room or an unused room. another crazy thought I had was that maybe they could gut the laundry room and lower it and make that an accessible bathroom for that room. that space is about 10x8 and just behind that wall that is between the stairs and the kitchen. I can’t help with your question of what would be cheaper, but I can toss out some brainstorming

    After 32 views and no replies, I figure there is just no help for my issue. LOL.
  4. I'd try asking over on Reddit. There is a stickied tech support thread. reddit.com/r/apple There is also an Apple support forum somewhere on the interwebs.
  5. I was going to suggest trying a new box, as others have suggested. It might not be revenge peeing in the normal sense, but something about the box itself combined with a dislike of the puppy pads (mine won't step on them, so I think he doesn't like the way they feel or smell). Even something as minor as her stumbling when getting in/out and twisting a toe or breaking a claw might have led her to associate the box with pain. For covered boxes with the door flaps, sometimes their tails get caught in the flaps and get pinched so they won't use the box because box = pain. Or, it's simply old and
  6. That was interesting! Thanks for sharing. It's not quite what my issue is (well, was--- see below) but I've bookmarked it for future reference because it seems like it could come in handy at some point. Nope. I also order a LOT of stuff from Amazon. LOL. I want to thank all of you ladies for trying to help me out. I think I figured it out, and will share what I think happened and what I did to get back in Amazon's good graces. I mentioned that I had two Amazon windows open, one with several tabs of things that I wanted to look at later, and one where I was streami
  7. You would think, right? I don't have access to his today (he checked his Amazon page before leaving for the day). Argh! I just edited my post to reflect that.
  8. Can anyone help me? I am desperate. I need to order something from Amazon today but I am having issues with the site. I browsed just fine yesterday. When I go to the main page in either incognito or 'regular', I am asked to fill out a captcha to get the main page to load. Then, when I click on a product, the reviews aren't there. I can see the stars and number of reviews, but they don't & won't load. I have reloaded the page, cleared all cookies & cache, restarted Firefox, and restarted my computer (mac). This happens in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. All browsers are up t
  9. Quoting because this is important. We also had an elderly cat who suddenly started getting UTIs and the vet suggested filtered water and a fountain. (Actually he said Distilled would work, too, but that was going to be pricey with three animals!) We filled an empty water jug (the gallon size) with filtered water from the fridge and used that for the water bowl. We just kept it on the counter full of filtered water and ready to pour into the fountain. Eight months ago when we moved to a place with no filter in the fridge's water line, we used a Brita pitcher to filter the tap water. The c
  10. She really is gorgeous! My vote is for Georgia. Here is my line of thinking (my brain connects things in a strange way, so bear with me): Gorgeous --> Gorge (said in a haughty tone like "isn't she simply gorge?!") --> George --> Georgia since she's a girl. (I warned y'all, didn't I? LOL)
  11. Wow. I would for sure pester her until I could go pick up my CDs (and check their condition before letting her get away). From the little I know about her, she sure sounds like an entitled brat who needs a lesson on responsibility.
  12. Agreeing with several others. Don't mention your suspicions to your DD. Now, I would say something to DD about her not lending anything to this friend if anything at all goes wonky with getting all of your CDs back in the same condition you lent them. Go get the CDs yourself. Plan something fun (either go shopping or grab a snack) to make the trip a good one. The reason I say to go and get them is so that you can have the friend immediately get any 'missing' CDs as opposed to drawing this out even longer. The sooner this is over, the sooner you can put it behind you. I would s
  13. I haven't gone through this personally, but a family member has. The part about a line and tenderness along the top of the foot are the same symptoms my loved one had. Their xray also didn't show a fracture, but was given a walking boot since the doctor was sure it was a stress fracture (caused by tightening shoe laces, of all things). I'm sure age comes into play since we take longer to heal as we get older and that area is under lots of strain, but my late-40s-to-early-50s family member was in that darned boot for close to six months! I can't remember which foot it was on, so I do
  14. Do you know the specific area/neighborhood you are interested in? A month or so before we were ready to start looking, I looked on Realtor.com in the neighborhood we wanted and over a few months, I saw several realtors who had the majority of the listings. I then went to the "sell" portion of Realtor.com and looked at the sold listings over a year or two to see who had the most sales-- in my case, they overlapped, so that made choosing easier. You can also drill down into each sale and see what the listing price & sales price were. This gives an idea of the market in your area of inte
  15. Can someone please add me to the PM list? While I was also doxxed (Wildcat is not the original "me" here), my situation was more of a sneak spying thing which I found super creepy. From what I can gather, OP's situation sounds worse. OP, I'm sorry this happened and you had to reinvent yourself. It was hard for me to do, and I was mostly a 'contributer' and not a 'creator', so I only had to become known again, but the old me wasn't missed by anyone, if any of that makes sense. The feeling of identity loss was, and still is, real, even after being reincarnated for several years. ((hu
