  1. How handy are you around the house? Do you repair things, or do you hire someone? Or do you just ditch it and buy new? Our washer conked out and wouldn’t drain. Gave an error code about the motor not working, and the estimated cost of repair was at least $300 if I hired someone. Did some YouTube searches and found that the most likely cause was a broken sensor, because the drum would turn, it’d just stop during the drain cycle. So I ordered the replacement part for $10, took the washer apart, and fixed it. For $300 I feel like I would have just bought something new instead of repairing it

  7. Idiot here with real name, a lot of shit I’m ashamed of in the archives. I’d rather just have it all completely nuked, deleted forever, but this is the next best thing.

  9. We bought a dishwasher!!! I've never been so excited about an appliance. This place doesn't have a dishwasher and it's slowly killing me. I actually took a tote of dirty dishes to my sister's house the other day to use her dishwasher. We also bought the first 2 kitchen cabinets. I'm so excited.

  15. YAY! Those look great. We had a lot of calaveras skulls for Day of the Dead and Coco's and then the usual Spiderman and Princesses. One guy at my sisters dialysis dressed up as a wearwolf! They also gave her a halloween themed mask. We made an ofrenda to remember my Nan and Mom. There was whisky in that glass for my Nan and the cats spilled the wine glass full of box wine we did for our Mom. I also did up my front door step to the condo. The front gate was done up like a mummy and I had cardboard tubes with eyes cut out and glow sticks in them spread around. I stalked t

  16. What was on your menu? We postponed by a day because our daughter was in isolation, but planning on turkey (may smoke half of it in our Traeger), cranberry & orange relish, cranberry/apple dressing, rolls, oven-roasted Brussel sprouts, butternut squash, and pumpkin pie. Its just the 4 of us, so keeping it simple. I realized we forgot potatoes, but probably not the end of the world because the kids are not the biggest fans of the mashed stuff. Also found some oatmilk eggnog at the store and it is good. Maybe some hot mulled wine, too.

  17. Once we get all of the kids vaccinated whose parents want them to be, I am all about dropping mask mandated and letting the crazies reap what they sow. Dammit, that doesn't include kids under 5 yet. Ugh. I will wait until those kids are protected before I enjoy watching the Darwin Olympics, Pandemic edition.

  18. We have a Volvo S60 and a Volvo V60 and pretty sure they are too damn small for us (the trunk space is decent in the S60, surprisingly, but that leaves no place for the dog). After driving a Highlander for 12 years, it feels pretty cramped. Waiting for that damn F150 Lightning for like 6 months now and they haven't even asked us to pick anything out for it. So I'm going to be a hippie lesbian eventually.

  21. My husband finally remembered that we have culinary lavender so he seasoned the turkey with lavender, rosemary and sage. I made a half recipe of stuffing and realized I always make a half recipe, so I still have way too much. Husband did have fingerling potatoes stashed somewhere so he cooked those with the Brussel sprouts. My pumpkin pie spilled all over the damn oven for the fifth year in a row so I've now sworn off making my own pumpkin pie and will just buy it from now on (and honestly, my homemade stuff isn't as good anyway). So now I am drinking red mulled wine and it is good. Maybe

  22. Just the basics for us, too. I roasted a turkey breast and made stuffing only partially from a mix and also prepared peas and mashed potatoes. It was my first time cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my parents, though, so I am very pleased with how it turned out.

  23. We hosted my husband's family this year. I made a turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, green beans, roasted Brussel sprouts, corn on the cob, mac n cheese, rolls, gravy...the usual. It was good. After years and years of doing meals for my giant family, I apparently don't know how to cook for only 9 people. We only ate about a quarter of what I'd made. There was A LOT of food. But I'd also bought a box of cheap meal prep containers so people could take home lots of leftovers, and they did! We have very little left in our fridge.

  24. Tina and I have technically four thanksgiving dinners. I made our own Thanksgiving on Monday so I could have leftovers and take something for lunches at my second job which I was working this week. It was a couple of turkey breasts roasted with fresh sage, rosemary and thyme with butter and salt and lemon which I served with my homemade dressing with apples and sausage, mashed nanners with gravy and some random frozen veggies. Then we went to my friends house at noon yesterday and had EVERYTHING imaginable with smoked turkey like two different dressings (One with cornbread and diced boile

  25. Just the basics. We went to my aunts house in Long Beach and that side of the family is very flavorless spiceless White People (so white my crazy uncle wore his Q shirt and spouted off the conspiracies like they’re faces). It was all good but nothing special.

  26. The short answer is too much. The main pieces were a prime rib and a turkey breast. Then they're were loaded mini potatoes, mashed potatoes, mozzarella dinner rolls, homemade stuffing, a salad. My stepson made three different pies. My stepdaughter made thesev cheese crisps with bacon and jalapenos that were actually really good. My wife also put out a meat cheese and veggie platter beforehand that of course people fill up on. Too much.

  29. Nowadays, things are deliberately made so that they can't be taken apart, so you'll spend more money buying a new thing. When my computer speakers began sounding crackly, I looked for a way to take them apart, thinking maybe it was just a loose wire. But, neither the speakers nor the subwoofer were designed to be got into. I couldn't even see any type of screws on them, I think the parts just snap together permanently, and you have to buy a whole new set, which is what I did. Anyway, I live in an apartment, so I call the landlord when something needs fixing. I even have to call him to re

  30. Yeah, water stuff I'm probably going to call a plumber. HVAC stuff I don't touch, either (which is funny because I'm essentially an HVAC engineer). I can do the math but heck if I know which part broke. My husband is pretty darn good at electrical but also knows his limits. This dumbass we bought a house from did a lot of DIY electrical and did not do it well. We may hire an electrician to redo the house at some point because the codes from 1995 are not very modern and we have barely any neutral wires anywhere required for smart home stuff. We also need a 240V installed in the garage for the F

  31. We're fairly handy and Google definitely helps. My husband did networking in high school and he used to spend summers up here with his grandpa and uncle who is a contractor. I am not as handy but good at the Google. I'm also really good at buying stuff on the internet. My husband will buy the wrong part, especially if he goes in person because he will just grab something instead of looking at part numbers or whatever. I can't tell you how many shower cartridges we bought the winter before COVID hit that I had to repackage and return and finally go myself to buy the right damn part. So we make

  35. Lady two is a director of some note from another country. We connected over a project, met in person, and hit it off at an insane level. Work and emotions both exploded and we have multiple projects going together now, including her bringing me in on a big nightly-adjacent thing. That job, and our careers are of enough note that I shouldn't say anything more than that for now. KP is still amazing, and supportive of me pursuing things, comfortable as my primary person. New lady is not normally into EN/poly behavior and it has been a learning curve for her. At the same time, even thoug

  36. We finally swapped everything to the formal living room and I actually like it. Its a little cozy and everyone likely can't recline at the same time, but it feels nice. I need new end tables, that's literally a filing cabinet we are trying to get rid of. Second picture is the "game room". Its a total disaster right now. We literally played cornhole in here Saturday night because it will not stop raining. My husband has decided he cannot live without a pool table and darts. We're going to add a bar where all the boxes are (far left) because there is a stupid step down with a railing that i

  40. Toyota for life, man. I don't care what you say. I love the crap out of my Prius. That said I don't understand the love for Chic-Fil-A or In N Out. As brands go I don't really think they're that great. I'll eat it. Especially since the In N Out near me is open late and they keep their drive thru going and a number three doesn't break the bank but it's just a burger. I am slowly weening my sister off Starbucks. We'll see. Now on the subject of tumblers for drinking, we buy Buc-ee's cups or Bubba's in my house.

  41. So we went through all that effort to swap out the smart switches and discovered there is no neutral wires at this house except where the guy ran them himself. Fml. Now I have some useless Wemo switches. We ended up getting some switches that use RFID for the kids bedrooms to set a dimmer schedule to help them wake up in the morning. Not that it did much good this morning with standard time in effect where my little heathen was awake early anyway.
