I had an injured, aggressive pitbull/boxer show up in my yard 2 days ago. He attacked my dog, and is hiding behind my kids playset so they can't go outside. Our country animal control has no website and their contact information is hard to come by. I finally found the info yesterday, and the guy got really ugly with me because I didn't call immediately and because I wasn't sure of the dog's gender or extent of its injuries. Umm... I am not approaching an aggressive dog that weighs as much as I do, just to check its gender. I called you because I physically and monetarily can't help the poor thing. There's no need to cop an attitude at all. So take your nonsense elsewhere and just do your job, thanks.

When my kids are grown, and it's just me and dh ( or just me if he dies or we divorce) I would love to sell the house and get a cute little trailer. I would love a little 2 bedroom with a tiny yard. A newer, nicer one though.

I want a different house, but I don't know if I want a bigger house necessarily. Mainly just a newer one that doesn't have so many issues with insulation. When we got a bigger house (the one we have now vs. the one we had before), we just accumulated more junk.

We got a hell of a deal on our house, and I love it. I absolutely love it. The kids have (mostly) moved out now, and I have a yoga studio, DH has a huge ass garage to himself, pretty much. When our last one vacates we'll have a music room, and I'll set up all my sewing in there. We talk a good game about how we'll move to a smaller place, but I don't know. All this space is the fucking bomb.

I have had friends ask me when I am going to 'upgrade' to a house. These are the same friends who act sad when I invite them out for wine tasting or hiking, and they say have to work on the house instead. I really don't get why a house is suppose to be better than a condo. My place is fairly new, so I never hear my neighbors. I don't have kids or dogs, and I don't like gardening, so I have no use for a yard. I don't have room to through truly epic parties, but neither do most of my friends who have a house. We all use the same friend's 5000 sq foot house when we want to be able to invite everyone. I think the only thing a house would do for me is keep me from retiring early.

I also have a friend who overspent on a house. Her and her H were struggling to pay their rental. She wanted a house with a certain feature mine has. She found one, but it was twice the price of my house. They're struggling now because their mortgage is almost $400 more than when they were renting. She was complaining to me recently that she didn't really have any money for food and they missed their 2nd mortgage payment because they couldn't afford it, so they had to working something out with the mortgage company. From what she said, whatever they worked out, they didn't have to pay their 3rd month mortgage either. They've only been in there about 6 months.

This is my last week at a job I have been at for over seven years. Most of my portfolio has been moved to other people and I am here in a support role for anyone who needs help or additional training. Since I put my notice in all I have heard is, you are so great, you are amazing, I appreciate your help so much. Where was that the past seven years? Where was that when you told me I would never be promoted and the person you did promote quit within six months even though I trained and mentored them? Where was that when we were told the company is closing our site and we are losing our jobs so me having to find a new job is a necessity and you called me a very nasty word? Empty, empty words.

I'm taking this online law school class right now and I've been doing really well on the assignments, but I just bombed the mid-term. He asked a ton of questions that we didn't cover in the book or the homework and even though I could look things up, he worded the answers weird so it was hard to know how to answer the questions. Thankfully most of our grade in the class is from the homework and the paper, but man. I feel really shitty about that.

I have a friend who is currently house hunting with her DH. Yes, they can probably afford the houses they are looking at, but they won't, if that makes sense. Their current rent is quite a bit less than what their mortgage, insurance and taxes will be (property taxes here are crazy high). And they still struggle to pay all their bills. They could afford them, but they are so ridiculously irresponsible with money. They blow it all on stupid crap, then run on fumes until pay day. Our property taxes are also reassessed each year, and since we are one of the fastest growing parts of the country, they go up every year. To give you an idea, our property taxes are now about the same as our mortgage payments. They've doubled since we bought our house 13 years ago. But we can afford it. I know they are going to screw up and eventually lose the house they buy. I feel bad because they have two boys who will get shuffled from school to school.
