CONGRATULTIONS!  Being "house poor" isn't all that bad!  Enjoy!!

Thanks!  It's kind of scary and overwhelming right now, but I'm really looking forward to ripping this nasty old carpet up as soon as we have a savings surplus again!

We ripped out our carpet a few years back since then my hubby & sons' allergies have improved ten fold.

Actually,  we paid cash -- which is why we will be living with this old carpet for a while!  I can't wait to  put the vacuum in semi-retirement.

Allergies suck.

We got a great deal on a fixer upper, probably spent as much as a good down payment.

I've recently discovered how much I love Forever 21. They have killer online sales and their clothes are so damn cute. My 36 year old ass is not Forever 21, however.

Had Dookie on at work today and it dawned on me that it came out before our interns were born.  That's scary.  I remember the days when I was younger than the interns.

Well well, I just found this thread!  I am not really a big fan of “ internet stuff” so while I joined GDA a few years ago, having lurked for a long time, I’ve only recently got more involved but only really on the Green Day chat side.  Proof if ever it were needed that I belong in this club if I may join the fun lol

My first fangirling was over Elvis Presley would you believe, then the Monkees and then I must have had a really boring phase where I behaved like a grown up.  My family are well used to my obssdion with Green Day, husband and son especially and always get that “your not normal” thing from my son.  On the other hand, I have taken him and his buddies to some cracking concerts, introduced them to some ace music  and appear to be classed as “ bad assed” 😂 

I thought all you guys were young things!

The Monkees was my favourite show:lol: & I have been rallying to change the title to over 40's for a while now:cool:
