  1. Find other people who have used that builder. And not one he refers you to for a reference.
  2. Oklahoma seems to have plenty of vaccine and a fair amount of appointments. All three of us have been vaccinated with first shot. I know a ton of people who getting it here. Native Americans have their own facilities so a bunch of young people are getting it there that might now qualify for current tier. In AR my critically ill friend (the one who almost died last fall) is not eligible....not even close. Apparently in AR they haven’t even started on the over 65 group, much less those with underlying conditions. Seems like some states just aren’t managing it as well as other state
  3. Just chiming in to say @Murphy101's experience is similar to mine. A lot of America is locked in their own little bubble. And it is not just rural either. I have cousins who were raised in Philadelphia and they are as uneducated culturally as they come.
  4. Oh I see. Yes in that case, just ask for them to revise the estimate without the things you will be doing later. No need to even mention you will be doing it. For all they know you just can't afford it all. I am sure that happens all of the time.
  5. I don't know but I saw a cartoon once about this subject and the contractor told them the price would be double if they helped. LOL In all seriousness, I doubt they will be ok with that. It is hard for them to guarantee a job when the home owner is in the middle of it. I think if you say you want to do the finish work...painting etc they might be ok with that.
  6. I was wondering about that. Because more and more I am seeing that fathers who ask for it get half time. So this will be interesting to see how it plays out. Especially with the age of her son.
  7. I don't think you share too much. Honestly, even though I get beat up here sometimes, I do appreciate that the majority of people here are insightful and knowledgeable and kind and helpful. It is definitely my go to forum.
  8. My Cabrio leaves this weird streak of light brown on any light colored shirt. So I image it is also on other color clothes but goes unnoticed. Ugh. My thinking is that it gets dirt lodged into an area and just rubs it into the fiber. No water is being saved at my house with this stupid machine. I do every load in deep water and I re do at least 50% of all my loads.
  9. Yeah well good luck with that.
  10. I have a Whirlpool Cabrio 5.4 cube capacity. I hate it. It is only 2 years old and just last week I had to spend $315 to repair it. I tried to get the repairman to 'buy' it from me....honestly I would have just given it away to him but he doesn't do that sort of thing. I would have just junked it but the thought of getting rid of it and then having to buy another machine was more than I could deal with at the moment. I just want a simple machine. That actually cleans clothes.

    Same. But I have come to realize that most of the (few) people who asked were operating out of confusion and love. I am not sure it was fair to present basically a lie about my marriage to my loved ones. Sure all of the gory details aren't anyone's right to know...but I got better when I could be authentic with my closest friends.
  12. Well, the tricky part about that is that he will have to make at least the minimum to qualify for subsidy on the ACA. It is in that link I posted at the beginning of this thread. In our state there is an insurance for low income working adults. Many states have some version of it.
  13. Ah I see. Yes that sounds tricky. I hope you find a reliable service!
  14. I would not do that without seeing the contract ahead of time. Doesn't she have a friend with a vehicle there that could help her?
  15. I don't think that is correct.
  16. I think someone was saying you can't ditch current coverage and get medicaid. But once he is 18 certainly you can drop him from your group plan and then he can apply to wherever for coverage of his own. Some coverages may ask for household income. Read the link I posted above from the Kaiser foundation. They have a lot of good info on it. It is good you are thinking ahead so you have a plan for him....that would be a good idea with or with the surgery he needs.
  17. So funny. We paid 140K for our 2000 sf home on 1/2 acre in town with an inground pool. And a separate apartment.
  18. Hospitals are notorious for not being able to price a procedure ahead of time. It is ridiculous.
