when it's time to throw in the towel and put the house up for sale? I've just had it today. There is no way Ted could get the utility sink fixed--after further investigation it's definitely a job for the plumber. The bathroom--well, yes I'll spend the next couple of days showering at the Princeton Club. The internet--well I'm hoping that it last long enough to post this blog entry. When we moved in here in 1999, we figured 5 years tops. This was of course until infertility and adoption--thus using the house for equity. After all, adoption is a home improvement! So, almost 10 years later and plus 3 kids--while we've added on (thank goodness--500 square feet), we're still at one bathroom and everytime I turn around it's something new. I thought to stay here until Julia is ready for high school, evaluate the high schools and move accordingly. St. Dennis goes through 8th grade. We can drive the boys if necessary. And yes, 2nd bathroom next year--it's well worth the money! But, should we do that? Are we just pissing money down the drain? After spending over 2 hours just washing clothes at the laundry mat (and drying them at home--dryer and clothes line)--is the time and money really worth it?
And for those of you that are wondering---my back and gut are killing me! I thought maybe I could have gone back to work--but yes, they were right in making me wait! Ok, yes H--- did just freeze over--I admitted someone else was right. Just mark it in your calendar--it doesn't happen often. Now where is my ibuprofen???
