[quote=suziquzie;685848]I am so sick of this stupid, piece of crap house!!!!
It's 35, a year older than I.... good grief I hope I dont start to degenerate like this next year....
Something is wrong with the drain somewhere..... the downstairs toilet and sink both drain very slowly.... and when DH was showering this evening I could see the drain in the floor of the utility room slowly rise....
DH thinks it may just be the piece of PVC my 4 yr old threw and flushed down the toilet last week..... boy I hope so cuz if not its a problem with the septic system and that would make me just commit myself to the looney bin. He can't do anything until tomorrow and lord knows he'll bee too tired or something. Stupid overnight shifts.

This is my other problem..... on his watch, when I work, PVC GOES IN THE TOILET!!!!!
ok fine, legos go in noses on my watch, but COME ON!!!![/qu

hang on, Mom...........have a latte laced with some brandy and just settle down.....then go home and beat the hell out of the nearest pillow........you;ll feel better I promise............

Suzi, my house is a few years younger than yours and doesn't have any children in it, but it has so many problems that I don't have the capability or finances to address, so I know where you are coming from... and strangely enough, one of them is the drain too! (You know changing a washer is a relatively simple procedure but I still need to get the plumber (or someone) in cos I can't turn the blessed thing to release it! Same goes with the toilet which I could repair but stuffed something else up along the way!!! GRRRRRR!!!)

Laurie, glad you are on the mend!

Expat: Dimples!! I liked dimples so much, I used to practice in front of the mirror (in my youth!!) till I was able to create them when I smiled a certain way. Now, with the steroids, if I try to do the same thing, I just look like a chipmunk getting ready to hibernate!!! LOL Even when I was four, Kirk Douglas impressed me with his chin!! ;)

I went back to work in August (just four hours twice a week) and am constantly tired. Also my mum has just been diagnosed with lung cancer so I am running her around for her tests and shopping etc, so just more tired!! Treading water at the moment I guess. See what the tests say as to whether they can operate on her and whether she is able to cope on one and two/thirds lungs or not. Today was the scan to see if it had spread. Find out soon I expect. I am not (refuse to as much as anything) worry until have something concrete to worry about. It is something that is ideally treatable until we hear contrary. It may never happen!! We'll see.

After a long line of cancer in my family, I will pray for your mother to be well again.

Went through a similar thing with my mom's brain tumor earlier this year and I know how scary and draining this is. I'm glad that you have such a positive attitude - stay strong!
