I鈥檓 proud of myself. I have to be my own cheerleader right now 馃槤

I hit a little milestone on the renovation work today. I gotta celebrate the little ones, because my life shattered and all these tiny bits are not simple to put back together in my own chest. I鈥檓 making steady progress, but like a turtle 馃槅

I see no reason why we can鈥檛 be out of here by summer though. The only ache I have is selling my mom鈥檚 house. My childhood home. Damn life is weird but it鈥檚 the littlest things every day that keep my heart beating 馃枻

I spent over two years renovating a hundred year old home I bought. I did it all except the roof and HVAC - those I had done. I get what you are saying about feeling good with all the little milestones.

@CopperFox420 Does your son get to help? It's a great way to teach him self confidence. On the other hand, each task they help with takes about twice as long.

@Ontheroad I have him help me with regular house chores. Which yeah it takes twice as long and not always the tidiest 馃槅 but he鈥檚 learning and willing to try to help. The other stuff has been too dirty.

Do you have any plans for what you'll do after, or is that yet to be considered?
CopperFox42036-40, F
@DunningKruger Yes we鈥檙e likely moving to AZ. Small place, make it sustainable. Greenhouse. Chickens. I want to build another camper but maybe 4x4. My son can have it all when he鈥檚 good with life and I鈥檒l travel till I die. And lots of fun in between.

@CopperFox420 Here's hoping that turns out well for you.

Sis boom rah rah rah. ... i can imagine you in you lr car. .. cross country you will go.... ending up in Arizona where the living is slow.
Sounds like you are making good progress. Maybe some healing too?

@Quoththeraven I鈥檓 always healing. That鈥檚 a continual process. Going through my mom鈥檚 shit has been hard. I鈥檓 fkn fried. It鈥檚 dark but good. You know what I mean 馃枻
@CopperFox420 I do know what you mean
