    My local council frequently decide to clear the snow banks during either the drop off or pick up times of our local schools...so you can't get past the giant snowblower/truck combo because there are too many people going the other way..

    I must have caught a blood vessel somehow.

    oh school parking is horrible!! i've seen just about every bad form of parking at a school possible! i've lived across the street from schools most my life!i currently live on a dead end street with a turn around at the end and sure enough there is always a parent or two who parks IN the turn around (what is a no parking zone.. because if someone parks in it you can't turn around)...i've seen parents block my drive way because "they just have to run in" and pick up their kid, because there was no close spots available, they didn't want to park across the field because it was too far away..

    I worked in a school that had a parking lot made for about 30 cars and yet the school had a few hundred students! All of the spots were marked "reserved for staff" except for the TWO "visitor spots". I wasn't considered to be a staff member, either, because I didn't actually work for the school. It was ridiculous.

    My cat has recently started pulling his "waste" out of his litter box to play with on the floor! I am getting tired of walking into my kitchen (the only place there's enough space - and no carpet - to keep his litter box) and finding clumps of litter and pieces of poop on the floor. Nothing is working to make him stop this, either, and I am almost at the end of my rope! He has no issues with going in the litter box, it's just that once it's out of his body, it's officially a toy! Grrrrr

    Would a litter box with a lid help, making it harder for him to get it out?

    Tried that! That's what he uses now, but he seems to have mastered the art now :| The ONLY two solutions that I have come up with but haven't done (due to cost, though I am thinking I may "make my own" of the second option) are automatic litter pans (run from about $80-$200; I assume the lower the cost, the poorer they work) and top-entry litter boxes (generally around $50-100). I am thinking I could probably get one of the big Rubbermaid bins with a lid, and cut a hole out of the lid for him to enter/exit. I know these can be as cheap as $5, but it's just frustrating how much money I have had to spend to try to solve every frustrating challenge he has given me. The problem I just got over with him was him dumping his water all over the floor. I had to spend $60 on a fountain that holds enough water to make it too heavy for him to push/pull/tip over. As soon as I get over one obstacle with him, he comes up with something else It's been almost a year since I got him, and I don't know how much more of him I can take, unfortunately.

    so DH and I went to WM today, and as we left I said "you go to the car, I'll walk to Dollarama" ....I walk across the parking lot without incident but as I'm approaching the crosswalk, there's so much ice I get stuck! It was slightly humourous, slightly scary! I had no idea which way to go and I really didn't like that I had to do all this maneuvering while cars whizzed past! one guy got such a kick out it he pretty much parked and hung his head out the window to see what I'd do next! the streets and sidewalks are nutssssss!!

    i need a traction device!

    Try the Rubbermaid bin route. Don't give up on him, too many animals are homeless because they maybe a little challenging.
    I finally found slipcovers for my couch and chair that don't cost a fortune. I have have them on 1night and already they are getting all snagged up because of the dogs nails. I think I need slipcovers for my slipcovers!!

    I'm considering this idea more and more now that I've thought of it I've tried so hard and stayed so committed to him, which is why I haven't re-homed him yet, but each time I think we're good he starts something else. He's very difficult and as my first pet I wasn't expecting to end up with a difficult one. I do care about him though, which is why I just keep trying! I wish it were easier! I do still hold out hope that as he gets older his obnoxious behaviours will cease (he turns 1 in two weeks). Thanks for the encouragement, and for letting me know that there are other people dealing with challenges from pets

    One of my co workers was also having this problem, being told it was a new carrier they did not know their route. Her husband phoned and told them if they did not have their paper by noon he was going to start contacting all the stores that had flyers in their paper and let them know they were paying the paper big money to distribute their flyer and a large number of people in his area where not getting there paper and for this reason he would not be in to shop at their store this week as he was not sure if they had anything on sale they needed and he did not have time to drive to every store to check and he does not use a computer so he could not look the flyers up online. The paper person at the paper made a comment of oh that would not be good we could get in a lot of trouble to which he replied yes you could and they had their paper within an hour and have not have an issue since.

    Just an idea.

    I went for a dental cleaning today. I think my hygienist had a bad night or something because she was brutal! My mouth is so sore right now.
