And So It Begins... AGAIN...

Addictions are a serious issue and can cause a lifetime of pain to those that love you.  There are many different addictions that people suffer from whether it is drugs or alcohol, smoking, sex, gambling or perhaps even hoarding.  Overcoming and seeking help for one's addiction to whatever succumbs them is often a long and hard battle for the addicted person and those around them.  Sadly, some people just can't be helped, no matter how hard they want to stop or try to stop.

My husband has an addiction and I think he needs serious help.  No matter what I try to do to stop the addiction, no matter how much money is spent, it appears that our life is entangled on this perpetual roller coaster.

So once again, we travel down the path of ...home remodeling...  When will it be enough I ask?  Just when I get to the point of feeling complete and done there is another project.  Another project that destroys the previous projects that were just done!  WHY??????

It has only been a few years since we re-did the living room/office, den and kitchen with new flooring, paint, appliances,furniture, etc.  NOW, he wants to knock down the walls between these three rooms and make it one big happy room!  All THREE rooms have different flooring, which means we will have to figure out how to make that gel.  The ceiling in the den and kitchen is different from the living room/office, that's a problem.  One of these walls houses the new double oven that has barely been used and there is no other WALL for this to move to which means that now I have to re-do the counter top and cabinets to make room for a drop-in range.  Let's not even mention the cabinet space that I am losing from the destruction of this wall!  We won't even discuss the dirt and dust and inconvenience construction people bring with them! 

What's next people?  When will this madness stop?  Someone please take me away...
