DeeJay, I hope you don't come back slurring. It's too early for bourbon! Spreadsheets are good. Yes. We even created one for the new house. Sticking to it is anutter whole thing. We set a budget of $40K for new house thingies. That didn't last long. No it most certainly did not!

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Happy Friday Eve! DeeJay, have fun shopping for boathouse thingies. Getting exactly what you want for a new space is the most fun. Murphy beds have sure come a long way in looks and comfort! Yes, we now know all of the 3 other neighbors. We literally won the neighbor lottery here. Everyone is simply...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Yes, we have Popeyes down here. Used to be really good and I loved how spicy it was, but lately, the size of the pieces have been so small that it's just not worth the price. Instead, our largest local grocery store chain, Publix, has fantastic fried chicken and a whole fried chicken costs something...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I have been watching the forecast, but won't get too hot and bothered until there's a clearer indication of where the storm will land. So far it's looking like well south in the state. But we'll likely get a bit of rain from it. Just in time to possibly ruin our weekend. Joy!

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay I hope the day doesn't turn out to be expensive and it's a simple and inexpensive fix on your car. When we closed on our HELOC, the deal was no origination or annual fee. Plus no closing costs - UNLESS we paid off the loan within a certain number of months. We paid it off earlier, so we had t...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, if you were told there was no fee, there should be NO fee. We didn't have any fees assessed on our HELOC with our bank. When we paid it off just months after taking it out to close on the new house however, we did have to pay a fee. We have a 4 day right of rescission law in Florida, but the...

Happy Tuesday back at 'ya DeeJay! I feel like a Doofus. Last night I used the garbage disposal and it sounded like it was going to take off on its own.

DeeJay, I don't care how wonderful it might be to shop at HD at 6:30 in the morning. The sun isn't up and neither is Rod! We didn't make a trip to HD today.

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, that's a mighty nice view. What you said about the relatively new house being beat up is precisely why I would NEVER buy a vacation home and rent it out. People for the most part are pigs and feel that because they're paying a high price for something, they don't have to treat it with care. M...

That's a bummer DeeJay. I'll likely never hit 10K, but wondered what I'd get if'n I ever did. Oh well, things and times change. Yes they do.

So sorry you hurt your hip. Maybe the floor really doesn't need mopping after all! Come on down here and sit in the Spa. It will help your pain.

There had to be as many or more BMW's and then throw in Porsche and Maserati and you get the pict...

Right you are DeeJay. You can never have enough storage. Even in our new larger home, we've spent a lot of money to add creative storage options. You need every inch of storage you can get in a kitchen. Yes you do!

DeeJay, even in a weekend vacation home, don't cut storage short. Perhaps an Island with storage that doubles as a dining table.

Maybe something like this:

I guess we'll find out the next time we have a cloudy day. So far, the lights are staying on throughout the nig...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I'm sure the Macan, being a Porsche, is going to very safe. They're not really giving our friend a new car. They totaled his car, but he has to buy a new car. In other words, the loan for the wrecked car will be paid off, but he has to start all over with the new one. I'm glad you know you wo...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

OK then DeeJay. You are now returned to the land of the sane! I don't blame you for not wanting a house to take care of with a roof and a yard, etc., when you're not nearby. Just do NOT get involved in running the association. You can be one of those who comes and complains!
