  • Yes Carmella , buying another disaster fixer-upper is just not on our docket. We can spot them miles away, LOL!
    And as Zombie13 noted above, while our current rental is a striking throwback to a bygone era with its gold faucets, tile bathroom countertops, Tiffany -style hanging lamps, two elegant...

  • I had forgotten both of your pre-BK13 and during- BK13 horror stories, shipo and Carmella - thanks for reminding me!
    I don't think I could have survived your caretaker gig, shipo ,especially the part involving the horses and their upkeep - you definitely have remarkable stamina and fortitude!...

  • I am not surprised at your purely analytical perspectives, justbroke and shipo because you have both rebuilt your credit with awesome skill and cunning at lightning speed and are both truly the BK Forums Super-Gurus!
    I think I was referring more to the emotional or spiritual renewal after 5 difficult...

  • Is Post-BK13 Life Ever "As If It Never Happened"?

    I'm curious if other BK13 discharged "survivors" feel as if their lives are truly the same as they were before bankruptcy began or if everything changed and will never be the same again.
    As the once ubiquitous tv commercial promises (after a fire or flood, or other home calamity,) "As...

    replied to Question Payment Plan
    Aspensage7, I am so sorry to hear about your mother and am sending best wishes to her for better health.
    My mother passed away 9 months before we started the BK13 process (from a very late cancer diagnosis) in January 2017, and she had lived with us for 16 years and four months - from January...

    replied to Life in Washington - So Far
    Thank you, Carmella, sophieanne and 82! You guys get it that sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and take a short-term financial loss in order to come out ahead in the end.
    Granted, without the home sale proceeds, this double rent -paying wouldn't be possible from an income perspective,...

    Life in Washington - So Far

    As I mentioned in a different thread's post, we have encountered some adverse stress during our now double relocation.
    I believe most of the blame for this is the natural result of a just discharged BK13 (having to rent a house too far from a very demanding but extremely high paying job and having...

    replied to Buying a compact car
    Well, I think it would be funny only until we survived a deadly accident - we wouldn't be laughing then, LOL!
    I just don't think we wanted to take that chance. Like the old country song,"The Gambler says , we have learned "when to fold them and walk away" (or in our case drive away,...

    replied to Buying a compact car
    Well, I think waiting in our case was a moot point. The condition of both cars (i.e. the 2005 Senta was almost unsafe and undrivable { no AC/heater fan, no defroster capability , an un adjustable driver's seat, no working radio/CD speakers , a sickening interior stink and exterior rust, etc.} and the...

  • shipo , you do make some good points (as usual), LOL!
    Still, I like the convenience of another phone line not connected to the web as a backup and alternative source for making or receiving phone calls.
    It's also nice not to have to change the phone number to a local Washington one (as we...

  • Thank you, guys!
    Yes, Zombie13 did contact Century Link and we've got the instillation set up for mid- September.
    We had Century Link as our internet provider during the BK13, but recently switched to Verizon because in this more secluded area of Renton, Century link didn't work as well...

    Huge congrats brokenurse , after a harrowing finish!
    The court should have to pay you interest in addition to refunding your money - that would teach them to stop the wage order deduction ASAP after they receive the 60th payment.

    started a topic Question How to get Landline phone Service

    How to get Landline phone Service

    Yet another Bk13 left over dilemma!
    How can we get a landline installed in 2022?
    We want landline phone service, but it sounds like everything is 100% internet and wireless based and no old school phone jacks in the wall work now.
    Is this true?
    The only reason we disconnected...

  • flashoflight, what's a zip code penalty?
    Is that for a nicer neighborhood? Or one more prone to auto thefts?
    Just curious if we might fall under one of these categories now or in the future. ...
