When it rains it pours! I have been thinking this for a while now.
We bought our house in 2007. We bought it knowing we would have to put some work into it. That's what we wanted. Its not our forever house, its the house for Brian to fix up.
We have done a good job of doing a job or 2 a year. I never planned on so much going wrong at once and all while I am not working. First Brian stepped through the shower floor. No he is not a big guy, the floor just broke. So shower is out of commission. No big deal we have another. Then we notice downstairs that the master toilet had been leaking, ruining the ceiling downstairs. UGH! So nearly all our master bathroom needs to be replaced to fix things.
Then the side door breaks off the hinges. Seriously falling inward into the house. If only I had a video of this. The front door had wooden panels that shift and let in cold air, along with the hole in the door to the outdoor storage room. We need all new exterior doors. Brian worked so hard with a friend last weekend to replace those himself to minimize our out of pocket expenses.
Now tonight, although not part of our house, we were stuck in a hail storm. The windshield of my car is busted, many dings in the hood and roof also. So all I have left to say is REALLY? SERIOUSLY?
And while I am on a roll venting. I love my child more than anything, and especially now I realize family is more important than anything. But it is still important to have friends. And Brian and I still both need to get out and step away sometimes. Its very hurtful when friends forget about you because you are dealing with a difficult life situation. Its very upsetting to find out who your friends are while also dealing with an illness. But I thank God everyday for the amazing people who have stood by us.
End Vent. Tomorrow warm happy thought with photos. Stay Tuned
