Ugh. I am feeling so stuck. Just wondering how others cope with this.
This house...I don't even have it in me to go into all the details, but the septic system (leach field) appears to be failing, the swimming pool liner failed and the cavity started collapsing so it needs filling in, and now my friend (who is a licensed home inspector) just discovered mold in the attic, which appears to be the result of some weatherization we got for free through a low income program. The hot water tank is leaking (just a drip, but it's a leak), I have been fighting and fighting with trying to get the basement to stop leaking when it rains (nearly successful - lake has become puddle has become occasional dampness, but still), the driveway is cracking up, there are wall areas that need patching and painting and repair.
I just want to feel good in my home. The rental market here kind of sucks (we could not get something this big/nice for what we pay in mortgage here), and if we sold the house we'd not likely get what we owe on it (so I guess that means we're underwater).
How do you put aside your worries and relax in your home?
