My eldest son and his wife got married a few years ago. Initially, they moved out of state after their wedding for my son’s work. Then things went downhill. My DIL got pregnant and quit her job to be a SAHM. Shortly after the baby was born, however, my son lost his job as well. Their savings drained quickly and it was too expensive to live in their state. My wife and I said they could live with us while they got back on their feet, on the condition that both got jobs. This was 2 years ago and they’ve lived with us ever since. Both work and while they don’t pay rent, they cover all their own expenses, along with the baby’s.
Recently, however, they told us that they were planning on having a second child. My wife and I said if they wanted a second child, they had to move out. We love our grandchild but we don’t want another baby in the house. And to me, if they can afford another child, they can afford to move out. They said we can’t tell them whether or not they can have another baby.... keep reading on reddit ➡

My room is a sort of mother-in-law suite, really cute, with windows that face the street. Right underneath my bay of four windows is a slanted roof, and the sun hits it all day.
I've been a bit stir-crazy as one might imagine, so today, I thought I might go be that person who enjoys a tan and a beer on their roof. I might add that I (34F) was a child during Clarissa and Blossom where various forms of rooftop/stairwell/cozy nook chillin was name of the game.
I should have thought, "hm, it's hard to even get out of the window feet first, perhaps this is a bad idea!"
But no, I simply braced myself on the interior molding.
Perhaps I should have thought, "even my outdoor thirsty cats never try to go out there,"
But no, they probably just didn't see any birds landing so it wasn't motivation enough.
How about, "I can't seem to flatten my feet on this sloped surface despite ample texture and being of a good height,"
Must just be my angle of exit!
So, I inv... keep reading on reddit ➡
Kind of funny how the media presents the average family as some giga-mormon stereotype of nicety and cleanliness and wealth while a fat percentage of people are wondering how they’re going to keep their shitty studio apartment. Maybe quarantine is getting to me, but I can’t fucking stand this stupid company executive-constructed family that pops up every three seconds on Hulu. Just another cheap attempt by corporations to capitalize on a crisis.
We saw a house that was advertised as having NEW ROOF 4/2020 right on the listing. It has old HVAC, furnace and water heater but the fact that the roof was brand new was a huge reason we came in at ask in our offer. We have also lost out on at least 5 other houses as it’s very competitive in our market right now. At our inspection we learned there is deterioration in many parts of the roof and what looks to be some patching, missing flashing, old and dirty soffits, etc. On the report he aged the roof at between 13-17 years (house was built in 98 so I am betting it’s the original roof).
What can we do now?
We have reached out to our lawyer and wouldn’t have made the offer we did had we known the roof wasn’t less than a month old. We are asking them to produce proof of the roof- detailed invoice, warranty, contractor information.
We are under a time crunch and our city has been dealing with looting and riots for days now and the lawyer isn’t getting back to us. We have until tomorr... keep reading on reddit ➡
When i joined this subreddit it was about a group of asian minorities who defended themselves when no one else would. In a way, for me at least, it was a way to celebrate my asian heritage and say "hey, koreans can be badass too". I live a little over an hour away from ktown and visit it regularly, what happened there is very real for me. I feel like the recent influx of individuals becoming aware of what happened to Koreans during the LA riots after what has been going on in the news lately have hi-jacked this subreddit, and now a place that was about Koreans has been stripped of that, in a way that is similar to cultural appropriation. Koreans are not about gun rights or shooting people, you have to realize Koreans have been underdogs for a very long time. We are a small country that has been separated in half by proxy wars, nestled in between two larger counties, who have historically expressed (or actually carried out) intent to invade our country and abolish our culture/ethnicity.... keep reading on reddit ➡
13 picks to work with today.
At this point I think Rick Spielman is just leaning into his persona. He has begun to believe in his own legend.
We are witnessing the birth of a supervillian.
Rick is a MAD MAN!
Fun fact: The Vikings had 9 selections in this range last season. Oli Udoh, Olabisi Johnson, Kris Boyd and Austin Cutting (Longsnappers are players too!) made pretty notable contributions!

Please seek help. (Pretend that I listed a phone number to a national mental health hotline of some kind here. I wanted to, but then decided it was in poor taste.)
Or just lean into it. That's what I'm going to do. Let's make some trades. That's the good shit. Inject it STRAIGHT INTO MY HEART.
Jacob Eason is still available. He's one of my few remaining crushes. Apparrently we've also been linked to Jake Fromm a little.
And frankly, at this late in the draft... keep reading on reddit ➡
6/1 Update: They walked and sent the release. I'm honestly relieved as I didn't want to deal with the buyer through the rest of the process and thought my 1k credit was fair in this case. Hopefully 3rd time is a charm. My realtor is afraid I won't recoup replacement cost on the appraisal so for now we are trying the backup offers. if those don't pan out I may still replace it.
Hi all, I would appreciate some feedback. My house was initially listed in March and sold within 3 days. The deal fell through a week before close due to Covid related issues on the buyer end. I relisted, had 40 showings and 5 offers, all above list and 3 as "as is" . I countered one offer to also be as as with right to terminate and they agreed. I also provided them a copy of the previous inspection report. My roof is old and needs to be replaced in the next 3 years or so. This is evident when looking at it and the previous inspection and numerous buyers pointed it out (and I agree with both). I conside... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don’t think I have an issue with alcohol but I was drinking way more than I was comfortable with. Even when I said, “I don’t want to drink today”, I often ended up with a drink later in the evening because I had “a day”.
I think I have an issue with self-esteem that led to drinking. I liked the losing inhibitions with alcohol. It was an activity to do with my boyfriend or friends without feeling lame or uncomfortable. I liked me while drinking.
What I don’t like is me after drinking. I’m bloated, heavier, and cloudy. I sleep too much and struggle with energy. It’s not good.
I first stopped drinking for a month when I did whole 30 in October of 2018. I had so much energy. I went to two weddings that month and stayed sober and I hated every second of it. But I was committed.
A lot has happened since 2018, including the death of my Dad in May 2019. All of the energy I felt from whole 30 was erased with looking to numb my pain and grief.
I never developed a terrible alcohol hab... keep reading on reddit ➡
We have seen this before. The market might melt up further short term but there is absolutely nothing to backup this monumental move over the last 2 months. Stocks are literally back at all time highs (numbers that were already overvalued before all this happened). I understand with low rates stocks become more attractive. Just remember the unemployment rate is still very high, bankruptcies are coming, civil unrest is the highest we’ve seen in a very long time, election this year, global tensions, inflation concerns. But the MONEY IS PRINTING.
The US economy is built on the belief of a free market. This market is clearly not free.
