Paws Don't Fail Me Now

"Dogs' lives are too short... Their only fault, really."

I love my dog. Every once in a while, I feel utterly heartbroken that I will most likely outlive him. While it doesn't happen often and it's not overwhelming, and I realize that it is perfectly natural to be sad about something like that, can you give me advice about how to turn these thoughts into something positive?

Breast reduction surgery is another option, I suppose.

I have this dress, and while it fits well at the waist and through my ribs and I've worn it before, it squishes my 30F chest in a way that does not look flattering at all. There is not enough extra fabric to let the dress out, and I can't buy a larger size. Whom in Seattle can I trust to do a great job at converting the zippered back (all the way to my nape, with mesh fabric upper half) to a lace corset back? Any other ideas?

Dog hair everywhere! Except on my dog :-(

Help me not feel like the most incompetent housewife on the block.

We just bought a new three-story house with 2,900 square feet of gorgeous dark hardwood floors that make every single tiny speck of dust stand out (and we're about to get a short-haired, light-colored dog). How the hell do I keep this place clean without going crazy? [more inside]

Why not buy the BMW, sell it for cash, and hold on to a 1.9% loan?

I have a line of credit at 10% annual interest with my local not-for-profit credit union. BMW of Seattle is currently advertising new cars at 1.9% APR. I don't know much about finances or economics, and I don't plan to buy a BMW, but I understand that the loan is unsecured, while the car is secured debt and not a big risk for the lender, but isn't that a huge difference for someone with a perfect credit score? Why the discrepancy?

Not a scrapbook lady.

I have two large shoeboxes of keepsakes and souvenirs from travels over the past five years, including event tickets, hotel key cards, tourist maps, pub coasters, receipts, photo booth pictures and banknotes in about a dozen different currencies.

Better than a Tom & Jerry sweater?

I own two short-sleeve jackets that I love. How often can I wear them to work without people wondering why I keep wearing the same thing over and over again? Do my coworkers even notice my clothing or care what I look like? Even better, where can I buy cheaper (but not obviously cheap) jackets? [more inside]

Enlighten my patio.

Does this lamp exist? I need a motion-activated flood/security light for the fenced patio right outside my bedroom, but I also want it to stay dimly lit during the remainder of the night and turn itself off in the morning. It needs to be weatherproof, and ugly is okay.
