Joys of Home ownership

Well, how to start this, oh I know! I HATE BEING A HOMEOWNER. There now that is out of the way. I know it is the "American Dream" to own your own home, but it really isn't all it is cracked up to be, especially when you have a "pre-owned" home. Since purchasing our house, 4 years ago, our water heater died, and our sewer has backed up into the basement 4 times ruining the carpet down there. We discovered why the house is covered in wall-paper. It appears that it has lead based paint, so as we have been redoing rooms we have been removing wall paper and sealing the walls. UGH I didn't sign up for this, at least not knowingly. I am ready to be done with this thing and move somewhere when if something happens I call someone else and they come and fix the problem. What are my choices with this? Is it back to apartment living? Is this how most condos are run? I need to start researching my options.

I guess I just went through this phase of who cares what I have to say, and honestly if you are reading this then that is one more person than I thought. Well as you can see almost a year has gone by, I would print exactly how much time but I am already too much of a nerd so I don't feel inclined to go figure it out. Raelynn is 9mo almost 10mo old and she is doing wonderful. No walking on her own yet but she can take you on a tour of the house as long as you hold her hands. She is a garbage disposal, she will eat just about anything that you put in front of her. Now that she has 8 teeth Precia and I are hoping that the teething is done for a little while, at least a month. She hasn't really stopped teething since she got her first 2 the day she turned 4mo. In this time, I have also discovered that I am a crappy parent, at least to my extended family. We haven't had any
