Re: Home $weet Home

so now they do have the TV on while at the dining table at dinner Oh god. Like their dining room is a saloon? I'm not a fan of eating in the living-room in front of the TV. Mostly on account of a 'No food in the living room' rule to keep the house from becoming a shitpit. I have done it, and will a...

Re: Home $weet Home

The isolated dining room is the most worthless trash space in any floor plan. I don’t think I have ever in my adult life seen one actually being used. Are you serious? That's absurd. Don't you ever get invited into other people's homes? While I've seen formal dining rooms that are only used on "spe...

Re: Home $weet Home

*What is it with people and huge master bedrooms? Oh my god, don't even get me STARTED. I'm not saying every master bedroom should be the size of a postage stamp. But they keep building/renovating them to be bigger and bigger just to try to look like more of a feature. And a bed is only so big and ...

Re: Home $weet Home

The Houston Chronicle article about developers building smaller homes (last post on the previous page of this thread) had a lot of specifics about some of the developments and models of floorplan, so I went to look at some from one of the developers yesterday and I have to say...they felt small and...

OK, I'm convinced our election system is sufficiently secure to not worry about an existential crisis.

Re: Home $weet Home

Also, it just seems like a tiny house is that much less stuff to clean. I mean, if you can stand in one spot and touch every surface, how hard could the cleaning be? Pretty much impossible. There's no room to take off your shoes, the seven square inches of floor gets trampled on endlessly, everythi...

This is the best news I have seen so far: Florida Amendment 4 has passed , restoring voting rights for felons who have completed their sentences. YESSSSSSSSSSSS I'd have voted for it.

I live in a blood red county of a cherry red state. Most of my ballot consisted of Republicans running unopposed. I voted for three Libertarians and over half a dozen write-ins for NOTA. There were three ballot initiatives for legalizing med pot. I voted for the two that gave the tax revenue to vete...

What breasts have going for them is a lack of bones and the ability to blend into any dish.
Bingo. Chicken white meat's lack of flavor is a feature not a bug. You're not going to make Cordon Bleu, Chicken Parmesan, or Chicken Marsala with drumsticks.

David would go to bed at 6am every day if he could. Second-shift work and a gaggle of children have ruined his life. :lol:
Second shift should fit him. He gets home around midnight and has a few hours to unwind before hitting the sack.
The children are sleep depriving ninjas of course.

If I am truly untethered from the clock, I wind up going to bed around 3-4 am. As things are, I still need to keep more standard hours for the sake of keeping in sync with the SO.

If you don't mind telling us, it would entertain me to know where the proceeds from the sale of your house are to be deposited, and to what purpose you expect them to be applied.
