  1. She attended Cypress Creek Christian Church previously. Then after her marriage she started attending a traditional Lutheran church. In her early adulthood she attended a Methodist church. She used to belong to the singles group at Cypress Creek and they would go out to lunch and go on trips. I'm not sure what other activities they were involved in. Once she met her late husband they started working on a property investing business so she hasn't gotten to do regular activities for a while (hence the need for a new church home and a new circle of friends). She loves reading and she rec
  2. Well, I should clarify that I grew up Catholic and I don't want to go back. Since I'll be going with her, I get a say in what the final decision as well. I've put Immanuel Lutheran on my list to try. Thank you.
  3. Thank you. I will definitely take her by to check out a sermon there. I had previously marked it off the list because we tried attending there years ago before the new pastor was appointed and we didn't care for the speaker. We already tried St. Mark's on Pecore but it didn't feel like home.
  4. We lived in Sunset Heights for several years (2001-2008). There were no kids on our street until we moved and then only one other family with kids. We were zoned to Helms Elem at the time. We moved because we needed another bathroom with a kid that was potty training age and we were exhausted from diy remodeling for the entire time we lived there. We moved to Lazybrook where we now have 2 bathrooms. The neighborhood was pretty much blue hair when we moved in but now has lots of younger folks. We were the only family with a kid on our block in 2008 and now there are 3 other families wi
  5. My mother in law recently moved to the Heights area and I'm trying to help her find a new church home. She's a senior citizen and I'm looking for a church for her that has an active senior's group that goes on trips, goes out to eat together, etc. She's open to just about any religion except Catholic. We've tried a few already and the congregations seemed really small. We were looking for a mid-size congregation for her. Small enough for her to get involved but large enough that she can find a variety of friends. Thanks for any recommendations.

  7. I checked and I don't have it on the computer anymore but I have a hard copy of everything. If you want to email me your fax number thru this site I can send it to you. De
  8. BTW, I did file the complaint and I can look to see if I still have a copy of it you could use for small claims court.
  9. Send them a certified letter, return receipt requested, with the following information (which should also be in your lease if you used a TAR standard form--pages 3 and 4 --http://www.texasrealtors.com/mr/forms/blank/2001%20Final.pdf). "Notices About Security Deposits: (1)Property code § 92.108 provides that a tenant may not withhold payment of any portion of the last month's rent on grounds that the security deposit is security deposit for unpaid rent. (2)Bad faith violations of § 92.108 may subject tenant to liability up to 3 times the rent wrongfully withheld and the landlord's reasonable at
  10. Thank you for all the suggestions. I tried to look up MECA but their website is no longer. I'd love to get him a few private lessons for basic drawing. I looked at the books at Texas Art Supply but they were a little advanced. I found him some more basic ones on Amazon that got great reviews so I ordered them along with some sketch pads. He has already shown great aptitude for following instructions on using basic shapes to create animals but I wanted him to get a few more ideas. It has increased his creativity since he has taken the basic shapes and ideas and used them to build other form
  11. I wanted to love BB's because I've never tried them before and I wanted a good cajun place closer to home. Their fried catfish was wonderful and we tried the appetizer that sounded really disgusting to me (but ended up being terrific). It was the french fries covered in cheese with roast beef and gravy. I would have never tried it if my husband hadn't ordered it but they were really good. The cheese tastes a lot like rotel mixed in but even with a canned product the outcome was good. I finally tried the gumbo because that makes or breaks it for me. I have to pass on the gumbo. The vegg
  12. Are there any good art classes in the Heights for a 5 year old? I'm looking for a weekly class (not a summer camp). I tried one of the camps at the Glassell but it's not what I thought it would be. I was hoping they'd teach my kiddo some basic drawing skills--like shapes to use to draw different animals and how to start out with different shapes to draw a person's face. Instead it was just a drawing free for all. I know he's young but he is able to take instruction sheets from the internet and follow the instructions for putting together the shape of a horse and a chicken. Anyone know o
  13. Take a look in our neighborhood too--Lazybrook. Right next to Shady Acres and our home never flooded. Most of the houses are at top of slope. I know the guy across the street from me is going to be selling soon because he's getting transferred. Some deals are to be had depending on how much the home has been updated. Neighborhood is switching from older folks to newby's moving in. Lady across the street from me just had her second child.
  14. I just sent Corporate an email thru their website begging them to reconsider their location off of Washington and instead consider the area surrounding Northwest Mall. Northwest Mall has been on a downward spiral for years and if that was torn down to make a mega Walmart I would definitely shop there. It's not in the historic area but is close enough to 3 freeways to make it a convenient location to shop. I would love a Walmart nearby without causing all the fuss of people who do not like them in their neighborhood. I don't think they would encounter any problems with the community if they
  15. I bought mine at D&D Farm & Ranch supply when it was in Waller. It looks like they closed down and are now in Seguin. There was a Tractor Supply attached to it that may have been the one that actually had the fencing--http://www.tractorsupply.com/StoreLocatorSearchAndResultsView. You can call and check. I got 48" even though I asked for 36"--they had both. We tried the 48" but it looked too tall to me so I just cut the bottom of the fencing off to make it work. Looks like this fence company in League City sells it but that's a lot of fencing to buy. http://www.afence.com/store/ho
