so apparently my first high school reunion is being organized. A bunch of people are posting updates about their life since high school and I'm just like...how the hell can y'all afford to buy your own houses???? it's only been 5 years.
That happens for a few reasons,

1. Family bought them a house, or put down the payment.
2. College degree is in something that pays really well.
3. They went to one of those computer schools, I knew someone that paid 25 grand for a 8 month program and within 2 months had a job paying 70k a year, so they basically went from 0 to a 70k job in less than a year. If you bank 70k you'll get approved for a housing loan unless you think you should get a million dollar house.

Well, the kid is awake. Guess I'll get up and get ready. I have to take my MIL to the doctor today and then hopefully grab that puppy.
Make big money everyone! Save something for me

Good morning. I'm feeling much better today. That was weird. I had a severe allergic reaction to something, and I don't know what. I broke out in a rash, and lost my voice.

your voice? wow. I didn't know that could be from an allergy.
Glad you are better :)

also depends on how much the house costs and the mortgages at the time. I bought a house when i was 19 , 10 k down on a 60 k house. Also at the time they were giving loans to anyone, my dog could have got a loan if he had a ss number lol.

I like the changes that Joe Lo's rejections ended up causing; you can now change your answers if you click the wrong one

I am doing spring cleaning today (I've been doing it all week)
I'm even washing the walls! Sadly, I'm up to the kitchen and it would really help if that dishwasher part had arrived (the spin washer thing is broken, so I ordered a new part......).
Two weeks for a part:disapprove:

It broke my heart seeing her! For the past two weeks, she hasn't made a SOUND. Even with the broken leg hanging there, nothing. Yesterday she was whining and wanting to be held. Poor baby :( I am hopefully going to go and get her sometime today.

Just gonna surprise my husband with her being here, lol. We still haven't found a permanent home for her yet.
Nice :) I'm sure it won't take long to find her a home :)

no collage loans, started working full time at 17 making around 25k a year fixing cars and the only bills i had were a cell phone and car insurance. So i was able to put away a good chunk. this was over ten years ago so things were cheaper then.

Good morning!

I did not go to my 10 year reunion. If I had, I would've spun everything about my life so hard.
