silent meltdowns



Yesterday the water boiled over, like way over, like it flooded the kitchen and went down the stairs.
Not for one reason or another but a thousand small things
Okay so there is ONE reason that seems to magnify all of the others,
but it is completely outside mine or Ben's control.
Has your landlord ever tried to sell their house while you are still living in it?
Let me tell ya what, it stinks, bad.
Yesterday I broke down, more then once.
Ben was awesome.
And then I came to an important decision.
I'm letting it go.
So what if there are a few dishes in the sink and moving boxes in the closet.
I have to move forward and get our family ready for our big move.
This has been such a grownup learning experience, and a lot of mistakes have been made.
But it will be over soon.
This time next year, we will be the landlords and hopefully not have to do this again for a very, very long time.

Bless your hearts! I do feel your pain, for we have been there. The nice part is that it will 'come to pass' Good luck!

yes, have been there before. I hate to say it, but I felt a lot of resentment toward that landlord for having people invade my home whenever they felt like it. I vowed - never again.

You know, I think most of my adolescence was spent having realtors come in and out of my private space. We tried to sell the house I was growing up in for at least 10 years, and then there were realtors at the house after that... no good.
At least you have a reason for your meltdowns. I just melt. Down.
