  1. This is very similar to being home during my stint of chemotherapy. I am a pro at this.
  2. For those of us who are seniors and have cancer or heart disease (me and DH) or other health issues, this virus is a life and death matter. We won’t even get into the $200k we’ve lost in our retirement accounts the past two weeks. Lots of people are worrying about their small businesses failing or losing their jobs and health benefits. This is about a lot more than a paid staycation.
  3. I meant to write that the pest company heated my in-laws house to 400 degrees to get rid of the bugs. Ick all around!
  4. My brother-in-law did an overnight sleep study and brought home bedbugs. His wife is DH’s sister and she told me she was ready to burn down their house. They had to evacuate and take oil paintings and candles with them (so they didn’t melt) and stay in a hotel, because the pest people heated the interior of the house to 104 degrees or so to kill all the bugs. Makes my skin crawl to think about it.

    Who are you asking?
  6. Phew, glad Murphy moved on since he was camped at our house in March. But I'm sorry he's taken up residence with you.

    p.s. last week we received a new, clear title to DH’s car from the DMV—just a couple weeks after paying off the balance 19 months early!

    Exactly! It wasn’t until I created a budget on an Excel spreadsheet with columns for budget & actual for each month that we made real headway. I could enter our expenditures every day and play with debt payments to see how quickly I could pay them off. (I put the debt totals at the bottom and linked them to the payments in the budget.)

    Congratulations!
  10. How's your progress on the painting and decluttering going?
  11. I'm sure it is events like this that make you happy you have an emergency fund for your rental properties.
  12. Mom, thanks for the great update. I'm very happy for both of you.
