Overwhelmed...

Right now at this moment I feel so much older than 22. When I see people that I use to go to high school with I feel like we don't have anything to talk about. They talk about their University classes, the current romantic fling and which apartment they are going to rent. I talk about my job, my long term boyfriend and my never ending house renovations. All of the realities of life are piling up on my plate and I find myself reminiscing about the fun, care free days of University.


This week my house went from looking like this.......


To this.........




Lovely eh? My basement is crumbling. There are holes that are so large in the foundation that I can actually stick my hand right through the cement. My flower gardens that I work so hard on are now dug up and covered with dirt. Besides that, this week my shingles on my roof are getting replaced AND two of the old windows are leaking water into the house....

I know I should be able to handle the stress a lot easier but how? How do you let it not bother you? I'm losing sleep dreaming that my house that I have already spend SO much money fixing up is caving in on me.


I wonder if buying a brand new house in the suburbs would not have saved a lot of time and stress? Don't get me wrong, I love where I live. I love the history and special features that an old house possesses. The trim, the original wood, and the stories that the house has but it is affecting my wallet and my well being.


What do you do in times of stress?


What do you do to de-stress?

Have a great weekend!

  1. all the more reason I love renting! No, but seriously, at least you can say you own a house...and well I would be in the same boat if I were to buy our house - my basement is also crumbling and I can stick my hand through a hole too, so no worries Linds! It will all work out - there are people WAY WORSE!

  2. Maybe just remember that you are only 22 and you don't have to have everything figured out just yet, or be completely settled. You don't have to have the perfect dream house right now, you don't have to be all that different from your friends if you don't want to be. You can have a home, longterm boyfriend, a job and still have the kind of fun that only young people can have. Thats probably the best way to de-stress....get in touch with old friends, put aside differences, and just let loose a little.

    ....

    You seem like you expect a lot out of yourself. Reward yourself for doing so well...and let it go when things don't go as planned. Life is sweet, sweet....have some fun!
