My dad is in the hospital again. On top of his physical problems, he has been having a lot of confusion and forgetfulness lately. I went through this with mom a decade ago, and I am not looking forward to doing this again. I really hope that his physical issues won't respond to treatment this time, and that he will get to quickly and quietly pass.

In response to a confession. This doesn't seem so abnormal. As we become wiser we understand that we need to choose our company more carefully. Sometimes it's best to read a book or watch tv instead of wasting time doing something we don't like or being with people who have nothing to offer. Be true to yourself.

My brother is suddenly all over facebook, posting conservative republican anti-democrat shit. Out of nowhere. I'm beginning to think he's back from parler. And it just bums me out so bad. My family dynamic sucks.

DH and I went to Menards to get a few things. I had put a bottle of Bio Freeze in the cart. Then we picked up a large bag of seed for the birds and a few other things. When I got to the checkout DH was unloading while I paid. When we got home DH noticed the Bio Freeze was not on the receipt. It must been under the bag of peanuts which I left in the cart but turned it so the cashier could scan it. It was not done intentionally but I feel kind of guilty. What would you do. Go back to the store or just forget about it?

In response to a confession. The buyer is using a VA loan, so some things have to be done for the house to be approved for their loan. My previous tenant didn't tell me about the toilet leaking, so the subflooring in the master is ruined. That I can fix. The realtors contractor H spoke with me about the list. He said "oh the VA won't approve X,Y,Z" which I told him was funny since X,Y,Z was there when I bought the house and I also used a VA loan. They're going to talk with the buyer to see whats most important. I let them know I can swing about $2k in repairs, the bathroom alone is going to be about $1k. I think some of it is they see I bought it for 120 & I'm selling for 160 6yrs later so they think I'm just going to be rolling in it. What they don't see is that I put 65k into the house, so I'm losing $25k already and I'm still paying off the $10k HVAC unit. Stress.

In response to a confession. They say the step is a trip hazard because it's only 3 inches from the ground (supposed to be 8). We never tripped on it. lol. The inspector listed 80 items. A few were stating manufacture dates. A lot of the list is stuff that was there when I bought it, and my inspector didn't list it. My inspector had 6 things, 2 of which I'm finding out prev seller never fixed (on roof/under house), he signed a paper saying he did & no one checked. Buyer chose 30 of the 80. If I fixed all 30 (including asking for a new roof when the inspector said it has at least 5yrs left), it would cost so much I might as well give them the house. It's basically everything to make the house in like-new condition. Realtor actually sat on this for 2 days before sending it to me. Wouldn't talk to me today about any of it, she's supposed to call tomorrow. There is a couple things I will fix, but the rest is overreaching.

I'm the person selling my home with the realtor that took forever. I had a buyer quickly. We're on the home inspection part. Is it typical for the buyer to request 30 things to be repaired? A lot of it seems ridiculous. Is it common for them to put a bunch of stuff on there that doesn't matter? When I bought it my realtor said something about putting a lot of stuff on the repair list so owners would feel more obligated to do some of it. I only requested what mattered. To me, only the important stuff should be listed. One is wanting a new door on the garage cuz there's a cat door on it (from prev owner). Another is prev owner installed a pvc pipe in the garage for a workshop sink, it's never been in use. They want it "repaired" (remove or finish). Another is the brick steps that have been on the house 35 years, the bottom one is too short and needs to be lifted? A lot of the list is stuff that was there from prev owner, and my inspector never mentioned any of it on the report.

I'd be embarrassed too.. Esp because your DH felt the need to lecture the friend, meanwhile he was hoarding a ton of (probably useless) stuff at friends house.. for years. I don't blame the friend for being pissed, your dh is a total jerk in this scenario.

We sold our house to a family friend and DH asked if he could store a "few things" in the garage for a bit and move them later since we had to move in a hurry. Friend said sure, but was kind of wanting DH to pick the stuff up within a year. It's been over 2 years and DH finally went back and picked up a TON of stuff. Friend said he wanted to use the space to store wood for projects and get this--DH lectured him on "minimalism" and how he shouldn't stock up on stuff ahead of time, etc. And DH couldn't figure out why his friend was PISSED. I didn't realize how much shit DH left there and when I found out, I apologized to Friend and told him he was justified in being pissed at DH because I was so embarrassed by him.

It's my fault for sacrificing the perfect career for kids, but I'm going to have to go to school or get certificates or something to get back in the workforce. I just don't have the type of experience and qualifications for anything outside of an entry level retail job. I'm not the smartest, but I'm capable. If you needed to go back to school to get a job, what would you do? My dream job would be museum work, but I don't live in a place where that's possible. So looking for other ideas!
