Unfortunately, just as I was getting ready to put it on the market, the roof leaked and I found out I had to have the roof replaced. I had to have the ceiling fixed where the roof leaked into the plaster ceiling and in the process, found out I have no insulation in the attic. I also found out that now I have to repaint all of the trim because my dumb a** tenants splotched oil paint over every place there must have been a mark of any kind - basically, all the doors and the trim in the house. The paint has now yellowed and has left huge yellow blobs over the rest of the white trim. I'm so demoralized at this point. Every time I think the house is ready to go, something else crops up.
I'm hoping that once I sell the house, I'll be able to put aside some money and if I need to replace my 13-year-old car, I'll be able to afford one. I'm secretly hoping that my little Honda will keep on keeping on for another couple of years. Meanwhile I'm crossing my fingers that nothing else goes wrong and I can find a buyer before any other gremlins come along that are going to cost me more money before I can put it on the market.
Did I say de-moralized? I mean de-pressed, de-spirited, just wanting to bury my head in the blankets and say enough already!
