    Sounds like my house. Although, after a number if years of marriage, I did rebel... All of our stuff seemed to have come from my MIL, and looking around, it did. She gave us nice stuff, the price was right (free), she is a very nice MIL, and it was a totally green thing - getting used instead of using more resources. But none of it was my style, and after a while, that stuff just screamed to me - YOU ARE LIVING IN YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW'S HOUSE! So when the time came to get a bigger dining room table, I actually said NOOOO! THIS TIME WE ARE BUYING (GASP-A-THON) NEW.

    I feel much, much better now that I can look upon something that was chosen just for me, by me. We got a very nice table and new chairs. And I am back to feeling more balanced about second-hand things.

      And, you got to give away stuff you don't need. That's awesome.
      Yep. The real estate market here seems to be picking up but interest rates are still low so it is a good time to get financed.

      It was nice to know that the stuff was going to people who I know will make good use of it too.

      Exactly. When I furnished my place ten years ago, I was doing it on a teacher's salary and every little bit of hand-me-downs helped.

      Now, as the Gnolls say, "If you can't eat it, wear it, wield it, or carry it with you, leave it behind."

      • A bidding war! Love it!

        We have almost all hand me down furniture, or stuff bought bc it was affordable. It used to irritate me Nd some times still does, but really, who cares? I would love to but a completely new LR set, for comfort and function, but I want to do it when we have little to no debt or pay in cash. So patience it is!

        Glad to see you doing well and continuing on a anew chapter! You're emf has really been helpful to the lot of us. I k ow I feel better. Smiles.

              And we even have and abbreviation! EMF, Hah! That means we have arrived! That's good to hear. I do check in on the thread now and then but it moves so fast it's hard to keep up.
              I guess that's another terribly dangerous side effect of a high fat diet. It makes you chatty.

                  I find, with the emphasis on the meat, which is stockpiled in the freezer, I am spending a lot less time at the grocery store too.

                  Today I just had a craving for bone broth for breakfast and then had some more for lunch. (It's been cold and drizzly here for two days) I had 6 eggs for dinner and am now nibbling on a bit of flaked coconut.

                    Ill say

                    We have gone from super hot with bush fires, to pouring down with rain. This weather is bizarre.

                    • Hi Paleobird and everyone.

                      PB, definitely good to hear it's going so well on selling your house.

                      Anyway, just checking in because I've felt a little disengaged the last few days and wanted to say hi.

                        Hi Joanie. Nice to see you.

                        If ever there was a day that convinced me more than ever that I really need to sell this fracking house and get out it would be today. I was showing the house today to the cello player, the one who wrote me the nice letter, bringing his wife by to see it so I wanted her to really like it.

                        We get to the part which I don't use as anything other than guest quarters and find backed up sewage water residue all over the floor coming from both the tub and toilet.

                        Ah, the joys of home ownership! FUCK THIS!!!!!

                        The water had percolated through the floor down to my Dad's workshop below where it was also all over the floor. At least there it couldn't do much damage with just a cement floor.

                        Arghhhh!!!! The towels I'm using to sop up the mess are going straight to the garbage after this. I would not even wish those on the Goodwill

                          If they come back you'll know they *really* love the house!
                          I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                              We'll see. I think he loves it a bit more than she does.

                              When I first saw the water in my Dad's workshop on the lower level, I assumed it was rainwater leaking in somehow since it's been quite rainy here for a couple of days. So, actually this plumbing disaster is better than that because it is a one time fix. Hopefully.

                              I was cleaning the water out of the shop and it never occurred to me to check upstairs for plumbing problems (until the prospective buyers just about stepped in it). I just though it was the rain.
