    i do an initial scrape into the trash and the rest goes into the sink. I would say i'm about 85-15 trash-sink. just a quick run with the fork and maybe beat the plate a few times against the side of the trash can. everything else is rinsed off and disposed. I don't see how you can cook/eat at home and not run your disposal every day.

    I locked in a rate that was 1% less than my current loan. Was still waiting on a balance sheet for my company and the refi guy called and said chase is offering me 0.75% off my loan with no closing costs and no appraisal or anything. Said they were fedex’ing me the paperwork to review.

    Not totally sure what’s happening. Jorts ?

    Haven't had a disposal since I moved into my fiance's house a couple years ago... is not fun.

    On another note, we have some issues at our house:
    1 - our dryer broke again; probably a burnt out thermostat as that's been the issues the past few times. Parts have been ordered, we'll see if that's the fix
    2 - kitchen faucet appears to be leaking. Leak seems to be coming from connections within the actual faucet spout/handle. Easy solution is to buy a cheap $60 faucet
    3 - freezer ice maker has never worked. She bought the house 6 years ago and the fridge was fairly new, if not brand new. Had a repair man come out and he thought it was probably a frozen line. She let it thaw a couple days and still doesn't work. Just got back from a vacation to her parents, and idk how I've made it this long without an ice maker. I need to get this thing back to working!

    No real major issues, just a bunch of little crap that's adding up. Neither of us are on lock-down, as she's a nurse and my job is "essential"

    I'm sure her belief is she's made it this long without one, why get one now.

    I had to convince her we need a microwave because she used the oven/stove to reheat everything before :awshucks:

    2. I've had to replace two things inside a faucet. One was easy, it was the rubber washer at the handle. Turning the water off and it would still leak. Most annoying thing is having to go outside, turn on the water, then run back inside to make sure water isn't spraying anywhere.

    3. I haven't had an ice maker in 10 years. Know that pain. Don't have a water line running to the fridge

    Was literally my excuse. You can heat your soup on the stove in 15 minutes, I can heat mine up in 2. If I die, I die, I'm not waiting 15 minutes to reheat something.

    If you're hungry you just start the oven or stove and it's done when it's hot. Only thing that's really a pain in the ass is if your coffee/tea gets cold so we bought some Yetis.

    Been working from home 95% of the time that we lived here so it's worked for me. I get it if anyone needs one, I love to cook and own a million cooking gadgets/tools that might get used once a year or never again.

    You can use a toaster oven or stove top for just about anything as a sub for a microwave. I swear stove top soup is better than the microwave.

    Especially with kids. We cook homemade meals every night with our stove/oven, but we also use the hell out of our microwave for vegetables, reheating things, and other stuff for the kids.

    Got another offer on my house this morning. Dropped the price about 20k Tuesday night. Buyers came in at the reduced price. Was about 10k less than the contract I had before they backed out before covid19. Lost about 10k in this processes.

    Yeah, I need to get it moved with a baby on the way. 10 grand isn't too terrible.

    Got a friend telling me I should ask for a price reduction on the house I'm already under contract on due to market conditions. Seems a bit risky
