New Mortgage!

Well, I went about getting quotes and the best was from the current company. The monthly payment will be $2 more than I calculated and I can live with that. I'm going to pay off the heat pump bill from the credit card, the Home Equity Line of Credit, the mortgage, of course, and take $10K out to put in laminate. I've had it with saving for the laminate and then having to spend it on something else for the condo.

The laminate doesn't actually cost that much, but none of the companies I've talked to about it will move furniture (and books, especially) for me. I need to have stuff packed, moved out, and held. As long as I'm doing that, I'm going to have some painting and such done. Then the laminate, then the stuff moved back in, a few pieces rearranged, and I'll do some of the unpacking myself.

Fruit 2 Zero

I saw Fruit2O advertised on TV as having a new sub-brand with electrolytes and went to look it up. Since they advertise no calories, I figured it had some other kind of sweetener, but it took me almost 10 minutes clicking buttons on what turned out to be the Kelloggs' site to find out it was Splenda. I wonder why they hide that? Lots of people would rather have artificial sweetener; in my situation, I'd rather go with the glucose.
