  • Have you had a company do critter removal & attic cleanup?

    They won't even give me a range on pricing. Before I pay for an estimate, I would like to know the worst case scenario range. Are we talking $2K or like $5K. I don't want to bother if I won't be able to afford the fix.

    I am filling out my yearly evaluation for a job that I am Per Diem and work only once per month (I work somewhere else full time). I have been there for 7 or 8 years and since I am Per Diem, should get the standard raise. I never have complaints and get great feedback from others. I hate filling out this Objectives part since the job itself doesn't really change. I would like to enter clever statements that really don't say anything since I suspect it doesn't matter at all what I enter here. Does anyone have any ideas for me? Thanks!

  • What kind of saw do I need to install floating laminate floor?

    I want to either rent, borror or buy the proper tool but am not sure what I need. The room is pretty square with 2 pipes on 3 walls for baseboard radiators that I will need to cut out for. I have all of the other tools.

  • Woman's footwear for yard work?

    I just got a yard and a pretty, red lawn mower but was told I must wear proper footwear for yard work. Must I buy work boots or can I get something like wellies? I was told to wear the workboots with high socks (something else I do not have). I know this seems silly but I don't want all my new neighbors laughing at me!

  • Dishwasher hose under kitchen sink?

    My home inspector said the dishwasher hose under the sink was leaking a bit and recommended replacing it. Would this be the dishwasher Drain Hose? Or is this hose called something else? It is a permanent hose for a built into the counter type dishwasher (sorry new home owner, need a glossary!). Thanks!

    My kitty loves medicated powder or sports rub for some reason. If some powder spills on the floor, she rolls around in it like it is catnip. Is this safe for her? She does not seem to eat it.

Meaning if you buy a house that is a little more expensive than you wanted, you will grow into the payment as you get raises, pay off bills, etc. My dilemna is that most of the houses I really like right now are about 15-20K more than I wanted to spend.

    I have been told you grow into your house. Meaning if you buy a house that is a little more expensive than you wanted, you will grow into the payment as you get raises, pay off bills, etc. My dilemna is that most of the houses I really like right now are about 15-20K more than I wanted to spend. This will curb my lifestyle of buying whatever I want, whenever I want it but I can live with that. There is a condex (like a duplex, no fee) that is nice enough on sale also. I do not love it but if I buy this, I would be able to pay off any remaining credit balances and rebuild my savings as I would have a decent chunk left over each month. I had originally hoped to buy the house I would remain in until I either go into a home or a box but should I buy this other home for a few years? Or should I wait a few more months and buy a house I truly LOVE?

  • HS Graduation gift amount?

    I have been invited to a grad party for a girl who I rarely see but I was close with her parents when she was born and like them all. I usually see them at extended family birthday parties once or twice a year. Also she is going to college in a good location so I am hoping to go on a road trip there. So $100? or $50? What do you think?

I realize Rhode Island has always been the "cute corrupt state" but how can they get away with this? Is the Federal IRS over the state IRS? Is it even worth it to try to complain? And it is too late to quit that job this year. Thanks!
