On another group there was a post about having an ugly home and I made the mistake of posting a few photos of my home and explained why my home is such a wreck. A couple of people commented that my home was "filthy and disgusting"..to which I felt personally slammed against a wall. I explained the fact that my home is tiny and one of my daughters has used our home to store her things when she moves and this makes my home overfull. I responded that it may be overfull but not filthy as I clean daily. Am I too sensitive? Should I have just ignored the rude comments? My husband lost his job 3 years ago and I became disabled in 2007..my retirement money went to pay off our house...husband's went in the bank for our living expenses..we receive no assistance and have to be frugal with how we spend what little money get...so remodelling we had planned to do on our home can't be done until my husband finds a job.
Here's my "filthy and disgusting" home..inside and out.
bathroom..yes we only have one
another view of bathroom..you can see shower reflected in the mirror over the sink
bedroom..I had moved things out to shampoo the carpet
another view of livingroom..shows grandson and my worn out hard wood floor which was mopped before the kids came to visit that day eventhough it may look "filthy" to some people
front of my house
steps leading from driveway to the deck
my herbs growing in pots on the deck
side of house..screen hides seating for privacy from traffic driving by
side yard cleared to make ready for studio to be built...still have to wait..funds had to be used to fix our roof..with both of us not working this will have to probably wait for a long time to become the studio I have dreamed of.
So there is my nasty home...I would love to live in a shiny new large one..but reality says "only in my dreams"......
