My grandson took a $ out of the change jug to get a snack at dollar tree and now he's sitting here eating a whole tub of cool whip. I know I wouldn't let my kids do that, but for some reason it's funny to see him do it.

Years back we bought some land and were having what was supposed to be our retirement home built.. the private road had no gas... and we were happy with that. We decided to go with shooting the electric, etc. under the road and underground to the house. We would check on how the work was going every week since it was a 4 hour drive out.

Well, we find out there was a major evacuation of the neighborhood... apparently between the time we hired the builder and the time they dug for the electric, a gas line was put in!!! The road still had paint saying "no gas" .. Well, they hit the line and caused the evacuation! We thought well, we made a big impression to a new neighborhood! The blame game went on for about 2 weeks when the contractor stepped up and paid the fine to get the work going again.

Lights went dark.... ..... ......

Breathing a sigh of relief. The house appraised at $900 under offer. We can manage meeting half way, but hoping they lower it. Starting to think that this is really going to happen.

Only 18 more days until closing, starting to get excited. Been living in apartments since 1982, so ready for a house and a puppy dog.

So glad you are feeling better! I truly hate it when I am sick. I hate to be hot and with fever especially.

I was just thinking about this thread and wanted to come by and say hello to everyone. Lots of negative thread in the forums these days but I can pretty much always count on this one to be pleasant.

OMG! I try to refrain from getting into debates with people on Twitter these days. They can get me all fired up then saying things I regret later. Head down and enter sweeps is what goes through my head when I go there now!
