there is now an emergency cell phone in the house cuz the land line still doesn't work. it is plugged in on top of the microwave. anyone can call out on it (but we do have a limited number of user monthly minutes so please just use it for important things) and no one has the number to call in except me. so if you hear it ringing..answer it..it will be me needing to talk to someone here.
also..i have been struggling with how to say this in a way that doesn't sound selfish and mean and i really can't come up with a nice feel ok way so i am just going to say it.
far too many of my personal dvd's have permanently disappeared (i am not talking one or two, or 10 or 12..i am talking about many over the years )..sometimes people are good, borrow and bring them back quickly...sometimes it is months later and sometimes they never are seen again. i know it is unintentional..folks borrow and forget to tell me, they get busy and lose track of time, sometimes they just get mixed in with someones own collection and forgotten forever, there they stay.
anyway, the bottom line is...i don't really want to lend out dvd's anymore..i have lost some of my all time favorite movies that i can't afford to replace anymore. watching movies with the dogs is about the only fun and relaxing thing that i get to do and i am one of those people who like to watch their favorite movies over and over again..i like and enjoy them and thats why i buy them.
i thought of just putting a sign up, but every time any of us saw it, we would feel uncomfortable and i don't want to look continually at a mean and selfish i don't lend movies anymore sign. so i thought i would just go for the one big and uncomfortable post and then we could just know carol's movie borrowing store is closed now and forget all about it.
