  • Dog still can reach neuter site with cone on? ?

    My silly dog can reach the neuter surgery site with his cone on. Can I spray bitter apple spray on the surgery site to deter him from licking? Or is there something else I can do? Can’t watch him constantly as I have to sleep and live life still. Haha. Thanks for answers.

  • What mortgage type would I need in this scenario? ?

    So my husband and I want to move states from California to Washington. We just sold our home and are living in my mom’s house. We’re hoping to get a mortgage to buy a home In Washington on his California School district job income. My sister is already living in Washington renting, and she loves our idea of her living in the home we buy for the first year or so, so she can save up for her own place to live. All the while, my husband and I would stay living in my mom’s house in Cali for that year where we would not move until my husband gets a school district job up in Washington after about a year or more. What kind of loan would we be able to qualify for doing this? We like this idea, as we get to take advantage of the current low interest rates and we don’t have to rent first when we do move In the future so my husband can get settled in a new job.

  • Will I pay taxes on home sale when only down payment is earned back?

    My husband and I bought a home in 2018 for $250000..we just sold the house for $280000, BUT we paid $35,000 in fees and closing to sell the home. We did get the $50,000 Down payment back from the sale and that’s our only gain from the sale. Will we have to pay taxes from getting the $50,000 back?? Thanks!

  • Slug sized brown mucus in green liquid diarrhea while pregnant?

    This is pretty gross, but I just noticed a large brown slug like thing that came out in my liquid green diarrhea. Im 27 weeks pregnant but have no other symptoms and have not had diarrhea up to this point. Just a little freaky is all. Is this an immediate cause for concern or should I wait and see if the diarrhea persists? Thanks!

  • Dog obsessively licking other dogs genitals? Could this go away with neuter?

    So my sister brought her 2 year old chihuahua mix to my parents house for a week where my dogs and I live. Her dog is unfixed and my lab male mix is unfixed. She’s not in heat or anyThing but my boy CONSTANTLY was whining to get at my sisters dog the entire week. If he was allowed to go at her he’d shove his face into her area flipping her over and try to hump her obsessively with all his strength. Her dog would threaten to bite so we kept them apart the whole week. 

    Whether he was in the house or the yard or on a walk, he was whining frantically the entire week. 

    We scheduled him the soonest available neuter appointment for a month out from now.  

    Well my sisters gone home now and my lab mix has started constantly trying to flip over my other unfixed male Cavalier to lick his genitals, and then tries to bump him after. Bugs the cavalier like crazy.

    So I ask this, do you think the Obsessive licking of my other boy cavalier will go away once we fix my lab mix? There’s no injury on the cavaliers area that he’s licking at. It’s driving us all a bit crazy! I’m pregnant, so hearing or seeing him lick at the other boy is  now a pet peeve that disgusts me. He’ll stop when I tell him to, but goes back to it a short time later.

  • Are the Homebuyers asking too much of us as the sellers? (Paying for their closing AND $5000 repair costs)  ?

    My husband and I are selling our house in San Diego, CA for a listing price of $289,000, which is the cheapest home for sale in our area currently. We got an offer of $280,000 for it. We accepted. The buyers are asking that we pay $6000 in their closing costs. When me and my husband bought the home 2 years ago our closing was only $2500! Is that amount their asking for just to cover all closing then we get back any leftovers past closing? Or do the buyers get anything leftover from the $6000? They also got an inspection done as well and found cracks in the foundation. They got it further inspected and it was estimated a $10,000 repair. So now they’re asking we pay $5000 to them at closing to go towards that repair... that’s $9000 off on the house price, $6000 in closing and $5000 in repair costs. Are we getting ripped off and should we go along with their requests? I’ve never sold a home before, so no idea if these are pretty standard requests... But if we fulfill these requests we leave the house with just our down payment back, no equity and no return of what we put into paying off the home over the 2 years of owning it.

  • Can I request the IV be placed in my arm, rather my hand while giving birth?

    I have a fear of getting an IV in my hand/wrist and I’m actually more scared of that than giving birth itself. I can feel anxiety in my hands and ankles and the thought of it. I’m due in November and worried about the IV, as I’ve never had one before, and know it’s going to just stress me out like crazy. So what do you think, could  I request to get the IV in my arm or will they disregard any request? Thanks.

  • Mom listens through door to private convos and gets mad at me for them? HELP!?

    My husband and I moved into my moms as my hubby lost work from COVID and we’re planning on living in her home until our baby arrives in fall. My husband butts heads with my mom’s actions sometimes. For an example my dad is disabled, no use of arms or legs, dementia, and hallucinations, and my mom takes him in the car when she goes shopping and left him in the car today during the 98 degree weather we’re having. Naturally my husband was mad. Thing is, my mom listens at our door to my husband talking angry about her. And she comes to me later when my hubby’s not around to talk angry at me about those convos n tell me he should learn to control his temper. On the contrary, my husband talking only to me about these things so I can help him work through his anger IS my husband controlling his temper. He never actually says what he’s really thinking to my mom as he doesn’t want to be mean. WHAT DO I DO? My mom seems to think no one can express anger or they have mental problems and need pills. That’s the style of my whole childhood. My sister was hot-headed so my mom made her take bi polar pills and always blames everything my sister does that bothers her on my sisters bi polar. Even when my sister would dump boyfriends cuz they were jerks. It was always her bi polar in my moms eyes. 🙄 Anyway, back to my hubby n me, Is the only solution to this problem to just move out? Thanks.

  • Husband now on call for grandma any time of night to help her. Is this right?

    So my husband has just offered to his grandma, who lives 15 mins away to be on call if she needs any help throughout the night. Thing is, he’s offered this for my disabled wheelchair bound dad with dementia while my mom works night shifts, AND I’m midway through Pregnancy so feel a bit worried being home alone and not able to drive if anything happens. I cannot lift my dad should anything happen either, being pregnant. Am I just being over dramatic or selfish, or has my husband over-booked himself? Thanks.

  • If buyer has no agent does seller pay less to their own agent?

    I’m trying to sell my house and posted it on Facebook. Someone started messaging me and asked if I think I’d accept a certain low offer for the house. They claim they aren’t using an agent so that will lower my commission fees. Is this true? Typically the commission fees are about 6% of the sale price split between buyers and sellers agents. But if they are not using an agent would my agent take the full 6% or only half? Thanks.

  • California COVID laws: Can I BBQ on the beach?

    I’m in San Diego california and I thought of a baby shower idea to do next month, but I’m not sure it’s legal with the current laws in place. I wanted to have me my husband and another family member preparing BBQ with a table of food. Guests come sporadically to the table to be served food and drop off a gift, but the idea is they take their food to a picnic with their own family anywhere out on the beach. Would this be allowed by today’s COVID laws? Thanks.

  • My mom expects my husband to be my dads nurse? Is this wrong?

    My mom convinced us not to move out of state until our baby’s born in fall, because she doesn’t want us to leave. So we’re staying in her house. Thing is, she expects my husband to be my disabled dads nurse and is in denial that he needs professional care. My dad is wheelchair bound, can’t use his arms, and has dementia and hallucinations. He tries to stand up and falls about 10 times a day. My mom can’t lift him so she yells for my husband every time he falls to pick him up. She daily goes out to shop etc. And expects my husband and I to watch him. She also is avoiding retirement as a prenatal nurse and regularly works overnights, to which she expects my husband and I to care for my dad. Is this wrong? It really bugs me and seems not right, like my hubby willingly gets taken advantage of. I saw it happen with my hubby and his parents while we dated. And now my parents are doing it to him! Is the only solution moving away? Mind you, my sister and brother live with their own families down the road from my mom, so we’re not the only ones here.

  • Too grumpy and sick to be excited for first baby. What’s wrong with me?

    I’m 17 weeks pregnant with my first baby with a loving husband that’s my dream guy. I love kids. Felt like my life took a turn for the best when my nieces and nephews were born. But now that I’m pregnant I just feel underwhelmed. People ask if I’m excited and I say “I guess so.”, but I honestly don’t really feel excited. I don’t feel sad, just kinda numb about the thought...I’ve had a lot of nausea and just have felt under the weather for 3 months straight, and now I’m grumpy. I just don’t know what’s wrong with me. Is this normal?

  • What is the goal of the black lives matter protests?

    I thought the goal was peace between races, but the burning and looting of buildings screams revenge to me. 🤔 None of the racist jerks in this nation are going to look at these acts and think they should be kinder to other races. NOPE. They’re going to act MORE RACIST now. So what’s the goal here? Or is it that we want police gone? I’m just confused. Thanks.

    Is it complete dropping of the police force that they want? Don’t we need police to maintain order so people don’t just go around killing, stealing, breaking into homes and such? Really have no idea what the whole movement is and the extent of what the people want cut. Thanks for explanations.
