Being a homeowner stinks!

UGH- my head hurts. I took a Motrin-800 and am hoping it takes away my pain. I also bought a box of  Milk Duds because I just needed a little bit of goodness in my day.

I haven't been sleeping well lately and I am sure that has to do with why my head hurts. So much on my mind lately. We got our base choices and are now picking our top 5 for our list. I am WAY excited about this. BUT that means it is time to sell the house again--DREADFUL!!

Have I mentioned I hate being a homeowner!! So not fun when you are in the military.

I had turned the water off for my bathroom sink 2 months ago because there was a leak. Yes- I know that doesn't fix it but I was hoping it would sustain it until hubby got home. Well, today I went in the laundry room (downstairs below my bathroom) and noticed a drip of water. I knew that when I looked up I wouldn't be happy.

I could have just kept my head down, turned off the light and walked away. That would have been wonderful and easy.

BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I know that is not the right thing to do so I DID look up. Bummer!! The leak is back and now I turned off all the water to my bathroom. So I am now on a mission to find a good plumber.
Head hanging down as I heave a heavy sigh with a sad face.

It is such a pain to find someone that you can trust to come into your home and hope they don't scam you and take you for all your money. I will have faith though and be diligent in finding one. Otherwise the problem is going to get worse and I don't want hubby's return to be filled with fix this and fix that. ( although I do have a list going- of course).

Anyways, I just couldn't seem to recover from the leak and headache so my day went down the toilet faster than the leak under it.

But I do have children and I must make a speedy recovery and put on my brave happy face-- insert smile here!

After all- tomorrow is a new day

Do a lot of military families buy houses at every new place? We've considered potentially buying a house in our hometown to rent out to my brother-in-law, or just to have a place to stay when we go home (yes, big price for little use), but have never even considered the idea of buying a home where we're stationed. A friend did that and about 18 months into the selling process they've never had an offer and have to live in a different state from her husband.

We've never bought a house since a 2 year assignment is pushing it for us. Have you ever checked out Angie's List? I think it's like 30 or 40 bucks a year and it provides you info on local contractors. I know you can probably do the same thing by searching online, but I really like the List. I've used it for the past 4 years. Check it out:
