Carol, it sounds like you have to begin again (no pun intended). Damn! That's worse than a bummer. I'm so sorry, and sorry for what your daughter was concealing. Wish I could come and help you. I'm a do-er, too. Remember: one day, one step at a time. pat

    Pat,

    Sometimes it feels like one minute at a time, but I must admit all the encouragement I;ve received from my friends on this site have given my strength to battle on. Thank you so much...Smiles, CArol

Oh brother, this sure does sound like an uphill battle. No luck calling in make-over teams so you had to buckle down and do everything yourself. This was indeed a sad state of affairs, especially since the body no long wanted to play along.
Well written, Smiles. luv jada

    Jada,

    There seems to be a small light glimmering at the end of the tunnel...I hope. My luck...someone or something is bound to blow it out. Smiles, CArol

A wise southern woman once told me when I mentioned I wanted to buy the home my grandparents built and lived in that you can never bring the past back. You'll be disappointed. I'm not sure I'd listen if the home ever goes up for sale but last week I went by there and the beautiful lawn my grandparents had is gone. It's now dirt. But her words make a lot of sense and more so after reading this. I can imagine your heart plummeting.

I can imagine the horror you must feel knowing how your son-in-law treated your daughter. Unfortunately, I have a son-in-law I'd like to shoot, change that two, one is verbal the other physical and both my daughters try to hide it. I never told my parents the truth of my first marriage, so I guess I understand.

I'm so glad you wrote something. It will help get you back into it. Also like I said I miss you when your not on here posting.

I wasn't happening! (did you want it here?)

    Donna,

    Thanks for the encouraging comments and it helps to know that people really do care if I'm not around. I am praying that by early fall I can start writing like I use to...I miss it a lot. Smiles, CArol

Carol dear, I'm speechless. Thank you for writing and sharing your unimaginable and mind-boggling experiences. Still, you're able to write them with well chosen words, with amazing imagery:

- Much to my chagrin, I would later learn of my son-in-law's erratic and vicious temper, and the lengths my youngest daughter took to keep the fact hidden.

Thanks to you, I learned a couple of wonderful wisdom, among others:

- Unwilling to raise the white flag in defeat, I considered our options.
- Having been raised to believe that one can achieve anything they set their minds on, I pushed all troubling thoughts aside and made the decision to renovate.

Your feelings of helplessness remind me to my mother's wise saying, God cares for everyone but we have to wait for our turn to come.

Blessings to you, my dear friend. Hugs,

tati, August 16, 2010

    I only believe I made it this far because of God and my darling angel. Thank you...Smiles, Carol

    May God listen to all your cries, Carol dear, and put the balm on your worries! You're always in my prayers,

I'm almost glad I read the second one first because after this first chapter I don't know if I would have had the will to go on, (reading that is). You are one brave lady and I for one certainly hope things are looking up. There is not one boring word in this chapter -- thank you for writing it.

I decided to share a few bits and pieces with you. If nothing else, you might just decide your life isn't running so rough after all.
Thanks, Carol for sharing this story. I'm going through a rough or what I considered a rough time at the moment. Reading this, made me realise maybe my "life isn't running so rough after all." My heart goes out to you and I hope that the situation improves soon for you and your family.

Every door, wall, and counter top had holes - a shoe kick here, a fist there, and even a hammer head or two. Much to my chagrin, I would later learn of my son-in-law's erratic and vicious temper, and the lengths my youngest daughter took to keep the fact hidden.
I think discovering your daughter has suffered her husband's violent behaviour must have hit you harder than the state of your house. Talk about being hammered by problems.

After part one, I dread continuing on to part two. I salute your strength in getting through this.

    Helen,

    Yes, and knowing that she can't or won't leave the situation..she makes all kinds of excuses for him and praises the "good times". I now understand battered women syndrome more than I wanted too. Smiles, Carol

First I thought it was fiction, but the tag at the top told me otherwise. I now feel sorry. Take heart as it is in these difficult times one's courage and grit comes to the fore. Knowing you from your writings I am sure these are just a few days bad at the office. Good times are just around the corner. Just hang on, and I'm sure you'll see the good times again. I wish you well.

Blimey, what a shock(s) you have had, bravo for taking the bull by the horns and finding the strength to tackle such a difficult job. Can't wait to read on and I hope things settled out for you.

    Hotstuff,

    The bull has tossed me a time or two..but so far, I have got up, dusted off the seat of my pants, and tried once again. Smiles, Carol
