Being a homeowner is proving to be one of the most stressful things in my life. So many things are going wrong. It’s just been one thing after another.
Snowblower broke down in the middle of a massive blizzard.
Then the shovel handle snapped, leaving us without anything to use for the snow clearing.
The pipe to our kitchen sink sprung a leak and filled the shelf below with water. By the time I discovered it the shelf had absorbed the water and now the wood is the smelling damp and a little sour.
Later I was doing laundry and when I went to switch over the load there was water on the floor from my leaking laundry tub.
And NOW we are on our 3rd day without any water. Our pipes are all frozen and not a single drop of water will flow through. My step dad has spent hours down in the creepy old crawl space underneath the house using heat lamps and pot after pot of boiling water that he was getting from his own house and bringing down to our place. 3 days and still no water.
Issues that are causing a lot of stress because we know nothing about this stuff. I don’t cope well with stress. And right now neither is my husband. He is pretty much coming apart at the seams. This is in turn causing drama between us as a couple. The arguments. The frustration. The tears …….
We need a break.
