HIgh grass and short goals....

The rain has caused our lawn to begin to look like a
forest. I have finally convinced him to allow me to
call for help. So, I have called the lawn service to
make arrangements. THANK GOD...I had to threaten to
put the old man in a home. But he finally agreed to
be sensible.

He showed me a letter today from our home insurance
company who have decided that they no longer can
offer us coverage since they are under the impression
that this property is a doublewide...instead of real
property. So, he is going to go talk to them and show
them the certification we had done a few years back
that registered this property as Real Property...and
took away the mobile home status. I am thinking
he will have a hard time with them and they will
tell him no. Which is fine. If so, we will find
home coverage somewhere else. Not too concerned.

But his having this new assignment to take care of
instead of attempting to cut the grass gave me the
leverage I needed to convince him to let the lawn
service come take care of the lawn.

Bet the neighbors will be delighted.

We had a conversation about the remaining balance on
this property. I thought he had paid it off. Not
yet. I explained to him the amount of money we would
save in three years by paying it off now, instead
of making those payments. He agreed to do it at
the end of the year. So, that is handled.

Since we are paying the mortgage off, that changes
the remodel plans. Instead of taking down walls...
he will be only taking down one wall...still wants
to make living room a bedroom, and let my son have
his room, and my sons room will become my office.
He said he would have the floors, walls, and remodel
the kitchen. Whatever. Our living space will
not be enough...but I agreed to it just to be
cooperative. He will see when he starts this...
that changing my his room into living space would be
much better...but at the end of the day, I would be
happy with a new kitchen, having my own office
and new flooring....fuck the rest. This place is
not worth it.....I can not get him to agree to
sell it and buy another place...but even this would
be better....

The pool area is never going to be right again...
until he agrees to put money into it...or get rid
of it. I am for getting rid of it. We do not use
it at all. I have not been on my deck in two years..
since he has his accident at work. The pool liner
needs to be replaced...and god, you would not believe
how bad the privacy fence around it looks. He never
ever put that protective seal on it...nor painted it..
and it looks 50 yrs old instead of 10....Whatever
it is what it is. I have no answers for a solution
anymore. It is way too much to deal with...

and now knowing that we may not be able to get
home coverage insurance changed my thoughts about
putting too much or any more money into this
piece of shit property. Honestly....I hate it here.

I hate it here.

We shall see how the rest of the day goes...
Will I get my lawn mowed.
Will he explain to the insurance company this
is not a mobile home without causing a scene?

Will I finally get some rest so I can go do
what I need to do....instead of having to cancel
my appointments cause it is not good to be
driving....

GOD I HATE THIS.....

I am sick of it.

Ready to throw in the towel.....
ready to give up....

ready to go to sleep.....and never wake up


LATER IN THE DAY :::::

He was gone a while. I was concerned I may see breaking
news where he threw someone into a wall. But no. He finally
did return and shockingly to me, he was smiling holding a
bunch of folders. He got it straightened out and made
an appointment to go back right before this policy
expires to get a new one. We are covered. They may want
to also insure our cars.

While there he talked to a guy who represents blue cross
blue shield too. They can help him with his supplemental
when he signs up for medi-care. He went over the information
with me, and I was ok with what he had. We will both go
back when he goes so I can get a price on insurance myself.

I will decide then if I will get it or stay with what I
have. And this will help us decide if I actually sign
up for SS or wait.

So, all that is handled. So far.

The lawn guy did not show up today nor did he call. I hope
he calls tomorrow. If not, I will have no choice but to seek
out someone else. It needs to be handled.

While he was gone, I got out the measuring tape and made
some changes to his new plan. If he is not going to give us
living space, I want my office to have an entrance from my
bedroom only. And I want my sons new room to have a lot
of closets. We will all three have lots of room in our bedrooms
and closets for storage. We will live most of our time inside
our rooms. He will spend the most money on the kitchen...
and our living space will not even have a sofa in it...
only a couple of real good recliners. Fine with me.
My own office space? Nice. I can live with that.

I will save my own money to buy new bedroom furniture for him
all of us. I want to make this right this time. Last time
I intend to make updates or changes. Get it right.

Later
