There has been one thing after another with my house. The plumbing, then the tree and tonight water not draining again from the downstairs shower.
This very well may be the last straw. I am so much closer to putting it on the market then I ever have been. Of course currently Dale and Della are both not working. Della’s job starts next week and Dale is still off on medical leave because of his broken arm.
So many things to consider……
The house is my main, nearly only expense.
The real estate market is better, but is it completely recovered?
If we retire up to the Pacific NW, this house isn’t necessarily where we want to land.If/when I sell, I could apply any equity to the house we are currently in and go from two mortgages to one with a good size chunk out of it.
What do I do with all my stuff.
Get rid of most of it obviously but that would still take lots of time and several trips up.
When I go up to visit friends, It wont really be “going home” so much as going to visit
Family holidays would change.,,,,but haven’t they already with the nieces moving to Calimesa
So I don’t know if its the last straw or just the last straw for this week. We had company this weekend, Vivian visiting from Mississippi. That wasn’t a big stress but I was cramping Saturday morning before picking her up from the airport.
******The rest of this post is about menstration, so men, or everyone really not interested in menopause just stop reading here! Take from this post that I am thinking more about selling my house********
I started spotting on Saturday morning. “What In The Hell” was my first thought and probably what came out of my mouth. It had been months!!! SIX months!!! I was happily cruising to the “year” mark that means I am in menopause. But no, that is not how it played out.
I bled so much this weekend it was actually insane and kind of scary. It did not matter that I was doubled up on protection and changing every 90 minutes or so I bled through everything. Standing with the awesome force that is gravity would send blood through my tampon, pad, cloths and seriously running like a river.
I was trying to entertain company and was light-headed at times because I was loosing blood like crazy. Today I spent working on laundry because I created a bunch of it. Although that was all annoying and frustrating. I am mostly upset about the resetting of the mark for the “last period”; I really do hope this doesn’t play out again next month. I am so very ready to be done!
