  1. APPROVING BANK. JP Morgan Chase BUREAU PULLED Transunion CREDIT SCORE. 601 CUSTOMER STATE OF RESIDENCE. Indiana NEW/USED. New YEAR OF VEHICLE. 2016 MILEAGE 7 RETAIL/LEASE retail AMOUNT OF LOAN. 25,000 TERM CONTRACTED. 72 mos APR/LEASE RATE 2.49 MONTHLY PAYMENT 375.00 MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: purchased through Costco car buying program so price was below invoice. No haggling, arguing, stress, etc. The ease of buying made conversation more relaxed and friendly, which I think helped us to get a second-tier loan rate rather than 4th tier... the finance manager called the bank on our behalf a coup
  2. i don't know that i actually "collect" anything... i just hoard. fabric, beads, yarn and Pampered Chef stuff. i do have a few dresses my grandmother (who passed away when i was 5) made for me when i was a toddler stashed away at my mom's house for safekeeping... that would be the only thing worth mentioning that has any real meaning to me. they are just a few things that my grandfather and uncle didn't get rid of after she passed away.
  3. i haven't seen that... yet. i can say that DH uses wayyyyyyy too much gel, though. it's mostly because his hair doesn't lay right since it's wavy. if i didn't have enough to do and i wanted to save a little money i could water down his pillowcase and squeeze the reconstituted gel back into it's original container if i really wanted... but, ummm, no.
  4. i was gonna be mean and tell ya all about my wonderful lunch that DH made for me... but i won't. maybe next time. but steamed or grilled veggies do sound sooooo good... maybe on a nice veggie pizza!
  5. i'm glad to hear your surgeries went well... i hope you continue to heal in the best way possible! my mom is supposed to have spinal surgery as well as surgery to correct nerve damage and she's putting it off because she can't get time off work since her doctor's office is having a hard time understanding how FMLA paperwork is supposed to be done or that it even effects her... and it's her work that caused her to have this problem in the first place. it's just absurd.
  6. i'm so sorry about your mom... i hope she starts doing better soon. prayers on their way.
  7. well, if it makes you feel any better i had said pretty much the same thing to DH a few years back when we drove by a relatively new restaurant with the words "open flame" as part of the name and saw that it had been reduced to a 4 foot tall heap of blackened scrap. so yeah... i have my moments as well.
  8. purpose of you eating them. maybe that was her point?
  9. I'm not entirely certain, because I can't find any direct reference to it in the FAQs, but I think, since this is a safe place to explore your space issues, that you can probably just hold up your talking hand and say, "Hell naw, anonymous person - I will not cuddle your stank." But Lisa will tell us when she reports back here. Lisa, you must search out someone who smells like hot flowers and experiment with several reactions to see which works best. I found a link to the rules. One of the rules (like 14 or something) was that ya had to be "hygiene savvy" to participate. So,
  10. boy did i call it right on the nose. that's exactly what she's done. her house, her money. no big deal. but at least i got some good info here... thanks to all who replied!
  11. now my mom is freaking out about doing this ourselves... i totally knew she would and almost made mention of it last night in one of my responses. it sounds like she's not sure how to turn off the breakers... her houses before this one had fuses so that's what she's used to. and she's worried that if we shut off a breaker or two that they won't come back on. i tried to explain to her how they work and that the possibility of something going that wrong are next to none but i would be willing to bet she's going thru the phone book right now looking for someone to replace the thermostat just f
  12. i'm with Nem also... 90th birthdays are pretty rare and... ya know. just be as prepared as you can be... have everyone's cell phones fully charged, have the state PD's phone number handy in case you need it, have plenty of blankets, plenty of gas in the cars, blah blah blah. it's murphy's law... if you are totally prepared, virtually nothing can go wrong.
  13. I agree, I'd flip the breaker for the furnace, not for the whole house. If ya cut power to the whole house, ya got a lot of clocks to reprogram. using the breaker switch for the furnace is definitely a must... but there have been cases of mislabeled breaker boxes and i don't want to have to worry about that being the case and getting fried. *that's* what i've been most paranoid about... not about whether or not to cut the power.
  14. i didn't see anything in the FAQ about "what if someone wants to cuddle and they smell like hot flowers?" that's definitely something i'd want to know how to avoid if i were the type of person that would go to one of those parties.
  15. wow... i fully embrace my personal space issues and the fact that i sometimes look around for something to physically damage someone with if they get too close. ain't no "cuddle party" in my future... that's for sure!
  16. that's totally the part i'm paranoid about... i don't want to get zapped and, of course, i don't wanna burn her house down either...lol! i'm sure it would take a lot more than that to cause a fire but sometimes my "worst case scenario" alarm goes off on some wild tangent. i'm just weird that way.
  17. The one that cat was playing with. yup...lol! i know i won't be looking to see if a bug did get inside... otherwise if i do find one in there, yeah, mercury spill will be next on the agenda! i might get into home improvement stuff, but i'm still really girly when it comes to most bugs. *shiver* Honeywell it is... that's what i've got and prolly all i've ever seen. i'll be wanting to get best one but have to remember who will be operating it... my mom can barely work her answering machine! now that's bad! After I posted that, I was really concern
  18. hopefully the Zicam will work... i took that the last time i thought i was getting a cold and it worked pretty well... DH was full-out sick and i was just fine. that's what he gets for not listening to me and trying it!

  20. thanks everyone... i'll definitely report back. between the replies and the video i just watched on replacing a dial thermostat with a programmable one, i think i'll be all good with it. that's part of what i love about CB... everyone is helpful with pretty much everything! Thanks again!
  21. thanks, mk she said that when she got home last night it had to be over 100 degrees inside and thought the house was on fire. she said she immediately turned off the thermostat, changed into summer clothing and went to bed... she said it was around 65 degrees when she woke up this morning so i'm guessing that it did shut down fine. she does have an electric furnace with AC so, yeah, hopefully it is that simple to replace. paranoia seems to be my friend, i'm tellin ya!
  22. thanks for the replies! nope... not twisted at all. she said it looks perfectly fine. i remember when we lived in an apartment the thermostat got stuck on the run setting and the maintenance guy said that an earwig got inside and got fried on something and messed it up. he replaced the unit. of course DH was there at the time and didn't watch what the guy was doing... DH isn't handy with anything other than a frying pan and kitchen knives. he can whip up an awesome meal but slap a hammer in his hand and he'll say "WTF is this?" i'm sure i will be laughing abo
  23. my mom just called me freaking out and asked me if i know how to change a thermostat. i'm fairly certain i can do it... and i've got a wiring book to back me up on the wiring part if i start to panic (electrical stuff makes me nervous) but i was just wondering if there's anything i should know before i go out and buy a new one for her and hook it up. i have heard it's really easy but i just don't want to waste time and buy the wrong thing. as far as what happened... she said that her thermostat will be turned on to a certain temp and will show that the house is at a much higher temp.
  24. whew, I need reassurance. please send healthy tummy vibes my way. hopefully I'm being paranoid or something. I about flipped on her when she told me what she had and that she still felt sick, and that I would be extremely if I got sick just in time for the weekend. I am overreacting... I am overreacting.... well, it may or may not make you feel better to know that two of the people girls that were sick weren't 100% when they came back to work and i work in close proximity to them... yes, we wear face masks when reaaaaally close, but not during normal conversation. so it i
  25. i had the same worry... several people i work with were out for at least 2 days each with the flu. one night i went to bed not feeling all that well and thought i was gonna be seriously ill. i don't know if it was some type of sympathy thing or some other thing altogether but i never got what was going around. hopefully you're just worrying for nothing... hope you feel better quick!
