Taking it one day at a time

Its Friday...I am going to keep this short and sweet because yesterday was a day from hell.  Johnny has an ear infection..I took him to the doctor and the doctor also said he has swollen tonsils and congestion..Johnny is such a trooper he rarely complains..Love that kid.
Hubby (Ex) finally broke down and went to rehab yesterday.  I helped get him into a facility and he has agreed to stay there a week.  No I am not going back...rehab is just giving him another chance at life..hopefully he didn't lose his job or he is in a world of hurt.  Then I went to the house..yikes..the water heater had burst and he had turned off water to the house...it STUNK..no running water means he has been using all 3 toilets for a week and not flushing.  So his dad met me at the house and we turned on the water long enough to flush toilets and I took out all the trash I saw around the house and decided I would get all my stuff out this weekend and try to pick up the house so that I can put it on the market on Monday.  I called the warranty company and they should be sending someone out to the house hopefully today to assess if I need a new water heater...which I am sure I do.  So I will need to fork over the dough for that.  Yesterday had me exhausted but I feel a little better today with a plan on what I am going to do.  I just really want to get this house sold so that I am not maintaining this household and I can go get a rental for Johnny and I.  The sooner we start to get a routine in a new house the better for the both of us....but this is probably going to take a few months.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and Mothers Day!!!

Thinking about you! I'm going through the same thing right now with trying to get the house ready to sell. I'm hoping & praying that it sells fast for the us. I want us settled into a place that is ours, I want our life to start being the life we want. It's exhausting trying to maintain a house you know you're leaving, one so full of memories. Stay strong Jenn... you've got this. Hugs to you and Johnny <3

Hugs to you! I am so sorry you are going through this. You are doing a great job handling things. Make sure you take care of yourself as well!

Oh Jenn, what a lot to deal with. I agree with everyone, you are handling this with amazing strength and grace. I hope anytime anyone offers you support, you take them up on it - it sounds to me like you can use all the "nuts and bolts" support you are offered.

So proud of you for doing the tough things. I have faith that you will continue to do so and my thoughts are with you.

Hugs,

Sandra

FYI...its illegal to fire someone for going into rehab. Don't know if you've ever been to alanon but its a wonderful support for families.
