Wood filing cabinets? She could sell those and make a good buck.(If they're good wood and in good shape.)

Is her husband gonna refurbish them and sell them on ebay? Yeah, didn't think so.

So, as I recounted yesterday, the in-law's pug had to be put to sleep on Saturday.

By the time I picked up the girls yesterday, my MIL had already put a down payment on a boston terrier puppy...in Iowa. She won't be ready to come home until late April, however.

She looks very sweet, but tiny. I can't wait for some puppy breath!

As is. Some people like the look of aged wood and a couple of scratches. Gives it character.

I watch way too much HGTV and shows like that. Rehab Addict comes to mind (she renovates houses using as much of the original and/or period pieces as possible) and West End Architectural Salvage takes pieces, sometimes makes other things out of them and redoes people's houses. They design some cool stuff.

Hey -- speaking of Rehab Addict...

She's out of Minnesota. Red, aren't you from Minnesota -- Minneapolis and St. Paul area? That's where she works out of. Her name is Nicole Curtis. Heard of her?

People will buy those cabinets as is. THey would be gone in 30 minutes.

Nope, never heard of her, but I don't watch HGTV.(I used to and LOVED it.)

If I can get him to sell those things, I will personally buy a round of drinks for everyone here.... lurkers and trolls included.

After that- the BASEMENT

Can they be used for spices? Maybe putting some kind of rack in the drawers? I may have a buyer.

What would he do if you sold it out from under him?

My newest Facebook pet peeve: people (and in this case, I mean women) who use it like Pinterest. I don't want my entire feed to be 50 different links in a row to cupcake recipes or inspirational sayings, thanks. I don't think you can block without de-friending on the mobile app.

Look on eBay and see if someone is selling anything LIKE it. Then tell him how much they are asking. Maybe greed will motivate him.

And, ugh, yet another one of my SAHM friends decided she thinks she's a professional photographer. For the love of Pete, take a class if you're going to have a big fancy SLR camera.

At least this one has a cute kid. One of my other friends has "meh" looking kids and she captures them at their most awkward. And posts every...single...frame.

I have a friend - online only - I've known for 10 years or longer now. She's pregnant for the first time. And posts numerous posts each day about pregnancy and the baby. Including, "Going to Walmart to get more diapers!"

No one cares, Brenda. No one.

I would not do that unless they became a fire or health hazard.That one is not on the menu.

Finding what some place is buying them for might entice him
