Jo ANN Fabric Store will not bag your stuff you buy.

I was in ours yesterday and they're still bagging in Tucson.  Would hate for them to stop.

Normal rant in my books.. I always send a thank you and taught my kids to do the same. 

Granted, my two oldest grandsons 12 &10 will text me a Thank you in ALL CAPS with the emoji of a hug... And at Christmas they take photo's with my gifts and text right away.  Not the "paper" notes we used.. but at least they do acknowledge.

I’ve always wondered how much was left over after a lottery win.  She was taxed harder bc she was single, correct?

she is single but I don't know if that is the reason.


Maybe Dee will pop in. I’m curious, I always thought there was a higher tax bracket for single filers.

I can understand why your reluctant to move twice. But you could be losing out too. Start a new tradition on your new ranch. 
you always have a proper attitude. It’s just a big ole step. ♥?

Thanks so much Laura.  I appreciate your kind and encouraging words.  I've been packing some of my sewing room.  Oh girlfriend!  Let me tell you I've been deeply reminded of ALL the partial projects I have stashed.  If I would just finish them or get them outta my stash for good!  So when we finally get the house built and my sewing room put together I will get on with those!  

ETA: That must be some deep psychological impairment indicating fear of finishing things and moving on to the next!  lol

Your prices and stats for how AZ is rated these days sounds like CA.  I'm sad for you all.

Lol I think I won some of those. I’ll call you when I get ready to set them. (Well after I find them)

RE:  The 4.5" bright/black swap blocks.  I have a bunch of those too!  But I think they got packed already!!

Is it hard to rent out your house?

It may not be but we need to secure the funds from the sale of our CA house to build our CO house.  We have a lot in our invested funds to get going but we need the money from one house to finish the other without having to take a loan to do so.

No, certainly we could rent it easily especially since we are in the desired elementary and high school districts.  But we need the money from the sale of our home in CA to use for the finishing of the building of our new one in CO.
