It’s a Mess!

So we were already dealing with water in the basement. Now two basement walls have started to shift. The rain keeps coming. We’ve been advised by a good friend, and home inspector, that we can maybe stay here for 6-12 more months if the rains stop the soil from pushing the basement walls in. There is no quick fix, just big scary expensive fixes, that might not even work. So we’re rearranging, and taking things out of here to storage trying to get some of the load off. I have created a “Free” box, and I’m putting children’s toys in it out front, and if no one stops to take them by trash day, into the dumpster they go.

We are also getting a bigger storage unit so we can purge purge purge our old one, and then move most of what we have here into there. It is going to be a huge job. I need to pack up about 20 bins/big tubs of yarn, and only keep 2 or 3 here also. It’s going to be weird having so little yarn around.

We’ve moved the kiddo’s bunk beds to the living room, so they aren’t sleeping over the basement area. Don’t know what I’d do if the walls gave way in the middle of the night, and we had to scramble.  But we are going to use floor jacks and hopefully if the walls downstairs come in, the upstairs will be supported for a while. Half the house just not useable puts us pretty much at just about the same, or less square footage than our old home in FL. Squish!

So we’re looking for another place. Might end up moving into an apartment for a few months if things go terribly wrong here.  And if all of that weren’t enough to deal with, I’m having women problems. I’m chalking it up to weird menopause, and dh thinks I may be dying. LOL AND I am going to have major dental work done in the next few weeks. Ugghh! When it rains it pours, eh.

So keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I know it’ll all work out, because it always does. I’m just praying for the right home to become available at just the right time. Something with a good kitchen, and a regular bathroom with a bathtub would be like heaven, after living with just this little bathroom with a shower stall for two years. A proper stove and oven would be nice, after working with a single hot plate and a toaster oven for the past two years also. Nowhere to go but up, right! 😀

    Oh dear!! Thoughts and prayers for things to go better and for you to feel better and a place to live comfortably to be found. Is there anything other than pray and buy from etsy that the rest of us can do to be helpful?

      Prayer would be wonderful!!!! I totally believe that all of this happens for a reason, and we are just set on another path that we can’t see the end to just yet. But whatever is at the end of this part of the adventure will most likely be what is best for us, or the help that someone else needs that we don’t know of yet! I wholeheartedly believe that!!!!
