Is It Worth It?

Mar 21, 2011

Eleven years ago, Peter and I had our home custom-built and moved in to the smell of fresh paint, the feel of spongey new carpets and the gleam of fresh hardwood floors. The time around our move-in was some of the happiest of my married life. I had just found out I was pregnant with Anna, we were moving into our dream home, and I was having a hard time believing this wonderful life was finally all mine.

That was years ago, and now the house is just reaching the phase where stuff is starting to break, peel, chip and fade. The cosmetic stuff I can overlook. Really, there's no point in replacing the carpets right now with both kids this age. The scarred coffee table can last a few more years, as can the scratched up kitchen table. The missing shingles on the roof, though – that I can't ignore. Same with the water stain that mysteriously appeared on the kitchen ceiling, directly under our upstairs bath.

I also have small hole in the siding by the front door, the railing on my basement stairs is loose, and I need to replace some of the outdoor light fixtures that line the front walk. This puts me in an awkward position. Paying someone to take care of all this stuff will cost me a fortune that I don't have. Neighbors can be borrowed on occasion but not with regularity, though. And there's one indisputable fact I can't ignore: Peter can fix all of this.

For all his unwillingness to fix anything in his personal life, the man was a serious handyman when it came to household repairs. He used to work construction jobs during summer vacations in college, so he can build, roof, side, landscape, wire and even handle basic plumbing. I know he'd come over and take care of these things here and there if I asked. I just hate asking.

Part of me says this is still his house, too, at least until the divorce is final. But then I wonder how much my pride is worth to me.
