New to list and need support
Here are the facts and maybe this is an old story that has been told many times before. I just need someone to understand and to offer support.
Married 30 years. 2 grown sons, students, not quite moved out. Too many hobbies! (mechanics, renovations, model airplanes) We live in the country and have too much space. A huge basement, garage, and workshop. They don't throw stuff out. Renovations to this 125 year old farmhouse are taking too long. We moved in 5 years ago. The kitchen is fantastic, but little things aren't finished. We have a dumpster out front because DH is putting in a new bathroom. That reno started last March. Dumpster has been here for 2 months because the old bathroom has to come out. (change in bathroom location). I am so tired of living in a half done house. Tools in every room. Projects started. Reno dust on everything. I have already filled the dumpster once with stuff, to show that I am serious about cleaning out. I would like to feel that we be ready to move if we had to. When we moved here and didn't do a purge or sort because we didn't have time. We both work long hours at our careers and my husband enjoys renovating to relax. It has the opposite affect on me. I also travel a lot so I don't complain too often, because I can escape. I have asked that everything be finished by spring "or else." I am trying to do my bit, like painting, cleaning up after him, organizing the tools, but I just want to put my head down on the desk and cry. It just feels hopeless right now. I bought a label maker - maybe that will cheer me up. Okay, I need a marriage counselor, not new pair of rubber gloves. Help!!! Tell me there is hope.
