Whiner Lady's New House...YAY..or

Recommended Posts

jafrmano

I love the house. It can be painted. I love the porch. I want to move there.

It will be a difficult situation for Whiner Lady, adapting to such a small 6 acre, 5 bedroom house, but I'm sure she'll find ways to cope, like buying Hobby Lobby's entire Christmas section again.

Okay, so I read the about me:

Our first-born graduated from high school in May of 2011, and she is currently living at home as she attends a couple of photography classes at a local community college. She has been stricken with a debilitating disease known as endometriosis at an early age, and she struggles to lead a normal life. She had a rather radical and unconventional surgery in July of 2011 to try to rid her body of the disease, and we are patiently waiting for the results....only time will tell. In light of her medical situation, she has decided to pursue a career in photography, which will allow her more freedom to work around her condition and give her the time that she needs to rest. She is in the process of beginning her own business, and she has a website you can check out for more information!

Really? Endometriosis runs in my family, and I expect that I will be diagnosed with it soon. (some members have been diagnosed with surgery, so it isn't a surprise, and I've had pain for months, but nothing on the ultrasounds.) And while the effects of it vary, I've never known anybody so affected by it that they couldn't lead a normal life. It's not like it's a rare condition.

I'm not a huge fan of the house either. I mostly like the laundry/workroom. I think the living room is on the small side especially for the number of people in their family. I love the screened in porch. I'm not a fan of the color and I'd feel isolated out there, too.

I find the built-in beds odd and claustrophobia inducing. We all look for different things in houses and I hope she's happy with this one long term.

I'm a sucker for built-in anything, and it might not be that far away from the city. Atlanta has places like that very close to the city. One time, I was down there with a friend, and we got lost and ended up in a beautiful fairyland-like neighborhood only 5 minutes from the freeway and it was within the perimeter bypass. You'd never have known you were so close to the city though - it looked and felt extremely rural.

I love it (but I like country houses), especially the screened in porch. I am sure she will find something to complain about within a week of moving in though.

House-porn at its best - a truly drool-worthy house. Can I copy-paste the built-ins in the dining area and put them in my hypothetical dining area, when I finally get one? (just have room for a smallish table in the kitchen, no dinner parties chez the Clouds).

However, what's with this "we need room to roam"? I can't wrap my brain around the concept of being completely car-bound. As gorgeous as the house is, it's isolated. The kids can't walk anywhere on their own. Friends can't drop by when they're biking to the corner store. You can't pop in to the dollar store or the grocery store or Canadian Tire when you're cooking/doing projects around the house and need tomato paste/drill bits/a greeting card right there and then. I realize everyone is different and that I'm a city girl down to the core and seven generations back, but it's very restrictive to have one form of transportation to rely on, which requires enough money for maintenance/gas and good health for driving, rather than having a choice of train, bus, biking and walking in addition to driving a car, depending on the weather and circumstances.

Loveday, you will have to pry my vintage Pyrex out of my cold dead hands. I inherited some from DH's late grandma, other stuff comes from thrift stores and is my absolute favourite.

Eh, that's how a lot of people live in Georgia. It's personal preference. My grandparents for instance live way out in the country, about 10 miles from any stores or anything. I realize Whiner Lady lives in "the Atlanta area" but that could mean anything from living in the city itself to living 50 miles out, in some people's eyes. There might not be any public transportation where they are anyway if they live a good distance outside of the city. Where I grew up, cars were the only way to get around. No bus, no train, nothing. And some might call us "the Atlanta area"--about 35 miles away from the city.

I wonder if the "radical" and "unconventional" surgery was simple laparoscopy that Whiner Lady is blowing out of proportion so that people will blubber all over her. Way to use your children and their medical issues as props for your narcissitic feed!

Though, the other surgical options would definitely be unconventional for a teen.

There are some aspect of the house that I like, and some that I don't. I really dislike the bucket light and the bowl sink. But, in general, I hate bowl sinks. I do like the wet-bar/snack area in the playroom.

I've been told that I most likely have endometriosis. Nothing on the ultrasounds, but scar tissues do not show up and only surgery will determine it. You know something that helps with endo...birth control. Yes, those little hormone pills or patches that Whiner Lady surely sees as evil. They prevent ovulation and can stop cycles, which allows for much less pain and the ability to function. Before the pill, I could not function. A week of every month=twelve weeks a year=about Three months of horrible pain. I coudn't have held a job and struggled to get to class and was missing too much, so I started on the pill and I can live a normal life. Not everyone with endo has such miserable pains. I still have pains that vary throughout each month, but it's not even close to what it was before. I bet if Allie just got on the pill, she'd feel much better. But, can't do that cause cause they're ebil, she needs to suffer for God!

Ooh, what all have you got? Pyrex porn is as good as house porn! :) My first Pyrex was the original primary-colours mixing bowl set, just like the set my mother got back in the 50s. My brother found them for me at a flea market. Then I started finding pieces at thrift stores--a pink gooseberry round casserole, a turquoise/white snowflake divided dish, a spring blossom butter dish, etc-- and my aunt gave me a set of the Amish butterprint fridgies she got as a wedding gift almost 50 years ago. After that it all kind of snowballed. :oops: I think I've got over a hundred pieces now, with no real room to display most of them, hence my raging lust for that built-in in Whiner-Lady's new house! :lol:

True! I had two laps, did the injections for a while and even did a couple of clinical trials for experimental drugs. If left untreated, it's awful, but it's treatable. With drugs! That are not hard to find!

When I struggled with it, I was trying to get pregnant, so BC was not an option, but being on BC made a world of difference.

Like I said before, she's using her child's medical condition to feed her own desire for attention.

Holy crap, the inside of that house is gorgeous (the outside is kind of blah to my taste though). I have a feeling the price might make me cry, considering I live in one of the most expensive areas of the country and my entire house could probably fit into the living room of that one. Whine whine whine.

Man, I agree. I don't drive, but even if I did, I couldn't imagine living someplace where I'd have to get into the car to get the most basic stuff. It may be a cultural difference, but that seems so odd to me. What do the kids do? Also, how many cars are they gonna end up needing? The lack of public transportation seems odd to me too, but that's a common thing in America, right?

Holy crap. As if her current house wasn't gorgeous enough. I swear to God, if she finds something to whine about with this one...

And yes, there is even a pool to replace the one we had to give up!

You poor, poor dears. :violin:

Some people are actually. I have a friend who's suffered with it for years and gave herself and ulcer due to constant use of motrin. I have it and only have issues for a couple of days before and the first few days of my cycle. My friend had to have a hysterectomy.

Is whiner lady Catholic by any chance? She seems like she could be, but I can't see anywhere where she tells us.

yeah, nothing on the scans so far for me- I have been on a low dose pill for a while due to previous cysts and hormone induced migraines, but it's stopped working in the last several months. (migraines have picked back up, period keeps getting heavier again, pain in my pelvis is increasing) So I have an appt this week. I suspect that I'll be diagnosed with suspected endometriosis, especially since family members have had it diagnosed laparoscopically. Hopefully the meds will work and I won't have to go the surgical route.
