You're both trolls, unfortunately...  but I wouldn't waste my time to PM either of you.

I'd rather you did not PM me. I've already had one traumatic experience with an individual harassing me in PM. I'm touchy when it happens.

To save yourself the trauma, why don't you go to Settings and turn off the PM function?

Mortgage Broker says it's the CMHC limit.

The CMHC doesn’t set limits for how much of your income goes towards mortgage payments...

There's some kind of suggestion or guideline.  I'm new at this so I'm trusting my mortgage broker, who has helped a dear friend as well as two siblings through it.

We got approved for $880K mortgage, so a house of $1M. 

Last night I realized I was getting sucked into the game.  I am going to start aiming lower, much lower.  Aaand... I will now have a 10-15 minute longer commute.

Is that so bad ?   ???

Facing fears in a gradual and consistent manner is the most effective way to overcome fears and phobias and is called “exposure”. This process involves gradually and repeatedly exposing yourself to the feared object or situation in a safe and controlled way. You learn to “ride out” the anxiety and distress until the anxiety passes.

I'm sometimes amazed at how completely inept some people are at reading the room.

Last week was incredibly stressful around the office. Me and the Minions were working as fast as we could to get big orders ready to ship. Good Boss Greg and Engineer Ed were busy trying to get a new product ready ahead of a deadline.  One of the directors and our sales guy were getting a bunch of stuff ready ahead of a big trade show. And in the middle of all of this, Ted Technician is wandering around being a know-it-all and bothering people about stuff that was low priority.  Boring Stories Bob is blathering away to people who have too much to do to waste time interacting with him.  Old Economy Steve is wandering around trying to turn his low-priority issues into high-priority issues. 

I'm amazed that nobody was killed.  Ted Technician came close a couple of times, I think.  The director was swearing about him after he left.

I enjoy watching the kids play but no longer much of a fan of Las Vegas. I liked it when I was younger but now I just find it crowded, noisy and expensive. It used to be a cheap holiday but everything is an arm and a leg these days. No longer a place I would chose for a holiday.

The won all their games big except for the final in which they came up against a well matched team. They were down by four points but pulled out a tri in the last minute and won by three.

It took me months to find a house...  but I wouldn't budge from my budget...  and it was more of a buyer's market probably.

Wanted to go fishing this weekend...   installed a laundry sink instead...  :-\
