I don’t know about you guys but my home is in shambles. The house was built in 1991. It’s not a very old home. It’s actually the newest home I’ve ever had. But after living here for six years, things are falling apart. First off there is this:
That is a little area above the fan that is above my dining room table. In this area on the ceiling there is a mirror inset in this wooden octogon. I know!!! Who puts a mirror above a dining room table? What kind of kinky stuff was going on in the head of the builder? I don’t know and don’t want to. But that mirror is cracked due to earthquakes or the house settling. Whatever the reason, I’m glad because otherwise I’d never get my husband to agree to replace it. He hates with a passion doing any home repair. It’s simple. We. Should. Not. Be. Home. Owners. But we are.
Next, I have a old bathtub that has decided it’s “giving up the ghost” along with the sinks in the same bathroom. They are made of some synthetic marble that was popular in the 1990’s but the lucky homeowners that got this great new product are finding out years later it doesn’t stand the test of time.
Another problem is that my kitchen counters are ugly. They are ugly green and they are cracked. My hubs decided to make pancakes on a griddle and set the hot griddle on the counter. Apparently these counters are also made of crap materials because the hot griddle made the counter top crack. When the crack occurred it sounded like some one was standing behind us and shot us with a shotgun. I actually ducked and screamed. These problems among others have been happening ever since we moved in.
Yesterday I had yet another nervous breakdown when I looked under the kitchen sink and realized the garbage disposal was leaking an ocean!! Hippie ladies should not be this stressed. This is not okay anymore. What could I do to fix this money pit house with a husband who doesn’t seem to give a rats ass? I called our mortgage holder and cried. Yes. I did. I asked for a refinance and a couple ten grand. It may actually happen. My house may get the cash infusion to get things fixed. But now, who do I call to fix it all and how do I make sure they’re not a con man? I already have been conned out of a few thousand by a jerk saying he would fix my bathroom. I’m scared and excited. I need ideas. I’m libra and I can’t make a decision to save my life. I do know one thing. Once this house gets all pretty, we are selling and getting a rental with a maintenance person.
In the meantime while I wait for the money to come (I hope) here are some good places to get decorating ideas if I decide not to sell.
Let’s just dream about hippie houses
Peace to u on the lovely Friday ✌🏼️❤️🌹
