    @Crochetlady is there anyway that your pharmacy can track down this drug from another location, this is what we had to do with Jaden's meds when there was a shortage and the plant was closed for 3 months, we traveled to various locations with a prescription for each location and got enough meds to last him until the plant was to open, just a thought. Hope things work out

    @saundyl geez that ex sounds like a real piece of work, why bother asking what your plans are just to mess them up. Does she not realize all that you and your bf do for her, the hair salon, etc.....I'm guessing there is no "official" arrangements on paper for the kids it's just between the 2 adults to decide

    When I go to a Chinese food buffet with friends, I get teased mercilessly about being a carnivore. I fill my plate with various meats, very little veggies and no rice (I'm ok at making veggies & rice & potatoes, but my meat dishes are never as yummy, so I overdo it ).

Don't know what happened to her cat (rehoused, given away or what-not named in the obit.)
    So sorry for your loss. Hopefully, the kitty found a home. I know how hard it was when my friend passed away to rehome her 3 kitties.

    I try to do as much as I can. I've come to realize how short life is, so I try to make the most of it (even if I know I have to pay a price - pain levels through the roof, spending a day or so in bed unable to do much, etc). For me, it's worth it to enjoy life.

    This place is a bit like Cheers (remember that old show?). I can almost hear the theme song as soon as I click on this thread.
    @Andit , my mother would say at least you get your money's worth. Not like this bird here who ate nothing but won ton soup the first time she went to a Chinese buffet.
    @Mrs. S unshine, @Ciel , sorry to hear about the loss.
    @SassyAshley , hope you feel better soon. It might take months though and you'll probably need your mom to help you brush your hair for awhile. I did not like this past October-January when I had something similar. My doctor said to brace yourself when you sneeze or cough as the surprises are especially painful. Oh and hiccups are just awful so try to get rid of them quick in whatever way works for you.

    Another money setback for me. This might be one of my all-time lows for things that I could have predicted beforehand. I forgot to repay my home buyers plan RRSP for last year. I was sure that I had, but "mommy brain" is a lot worse than I expected. With the new baby, it completely slipped my mind. What really angers me is that I was in at the bank, putting a little money away for LO's RESP and my TFSA. I was there, and I forgot! It's also barely a week past the deadline and I could have avoided over $300 in taxes if I had just known a week ago (from the time I found out). I really wish my company handed their T4s out earlier than the last day in February, and that I had time to search for all my tax forms in one day.

    QOTD: What is your worst money mistake ever and how did you fix it? If you couldn't fix it, what did you learn from it?

    As for me, I've written it in my calendar to make an appointment with the bank in April, when I expect my taxes to be assessed so there won't be a chance I'll miss it for this year. Somehow, having a LO made me get rid of my calendar as well (I think she just takes it out of my bag and it never made it's way back in again).

    Nancy an Instant Pot is a Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Yogurt Maker all in one. It actually has a few more functions I can't think of off the top of my head in total it is a 7 in 1 electrical pot. I was not sold on it, I wanted it but still on the fence until I started to read all the reviews on Amazon, seems like most loved it except that the instructions are not the best, which I figure I can work around. I love the idea of rice, quinoa, oatmeal in minutes. Plus the set it and forget it thing is also great. Maybe this will help with our eating out as meals can be done in a fraction of the time.

As for their Mom I hate to say it but it sounds like she gets enjoyment from ruining/wrecking your plans which I have seen before when it comes to divorce. It is almost like it make them feel they have the upper hand. You see it a lot when one parent has the kids most of the time vs a parent who only gets them every other weekend the so called "full time" parent makes plans and changes schedules and feel that is their right because they have the kids more and are the "full time" parent.

    Crochetlady seems a bit odd that they cannot do anything for you. It is not your fault it is not available.

    So I was very bad last night, after about an hour or so of reading about the instant pot, I purchased it. Only cost me about half price as I had some gift cards I could use to cover the other half but still money I did not need to spend. Oh well this is my splurge for me.

    Hope everyone has a great day.
    Doesnt that assumpition just make you sad sometimes?

    The sad thing is with her we have them a week and she has them a week....and a good portion of the week they are with her...they end up with us during the evening anyways with her either doing hair in the house (bleh) or them saying they'd rather be at dads while she drops one or the other off or runs to her house to get something needed for whatever and is gone for a couple hours.

    I dont mind having the boys. I do mind her using us or ruining plans with them.

    What is an instant pot?

    Getting 2 toilets replaced today. We've run into a couple of problems.......Why can't anything be EASY??? Luckily our neighbour who is doing the work is an "all-round" handiperson! He's on the job! But a 2 hour job has turned into a 4 hour (at least) job. Then, of course, because the new tank is smaller, you can see where the painting ended behind the tank. Painting the bathrooms was not on the list - but dominos......
