So the bathroom I told you all about last week is still not done. I’ve ran into quite a bit of unexpected issues… the latest of which, I’m pretty sure almost caused a nervous breakdown.
Our house was built in the 1950’s so there are a lot of things that were made sometime before my parents were born. One of these things… the light/heater/vent in the bathroom. Apparently, they stopped making that particular model in 1958.
I was starting to feel like I’m never going to get the bathroom done after realizing we can’t even get replacement parts for the stupid thing and the wiring is all bad and needs to be replaced.
This wasn’t even what prompted the almost breakdown! It was walking into the living room and seeing that this has happened:
Not sure if you can tell, but there is a definite bend in the wall that isn’t supposed to be there.
Then I got online.
My homepage is set to ibelieve.com. It’s a site where you can find a lot of blogs geared toward Christian women. When I logged on today, the homepage had this:
I read the article and prayed the prayer. I felt better.
And then my mom called. I’m getting ready to leave to go there now and get some advice from my stepdad (who actually knows how to fix things and isn’t just winging it like me).
Crisis averted. Peace restored. Feeling thankful.
My problems aren’t solved. The bathroom isn’t magically done and I’m pretty sure we’ve got foundation issues that need to be addressed immediately. But I’m okay with it. My family is healthy, happy, and I’m blessed to even have a house that I can have problems with.
I wanted to share the link with you all because someone else might be feeling a little hopeless and chaotic right now too. I tried to link the pic so that it opens to the site, but just in case it doesn’t work, you can click here.
