Don't want to be responsible anymore!

Have not been updating because I am at a point where what I am fixing is boring even to me. No one wants to hear about a meltdown I had because all of my panel nails kept bending as I was trying to nail the quarter round into the floor to hold the flooring in place. I mean, how hard can that be? I even drilled holes first and the nails still bent. No, I am clearly not a finish carpenter. Selling things at my sister's garage sale is going well. I am close to a decision about renting my house to friends who will care for it take care of a few animals. 
My house is paid for but taxes are high for a high crime area. I live out in the country by a few miles and have noisy dogs that bark if car, cat or truck enters my drive or yard so I don't worry.
I have my art studio/gallery on the property. It looks like a little Gatlinburg cottage with my hot tub on the porch.  I intend to redesign it, its only 21 ft by 21 ft, so I will have a place to live when I am not on the road. It has a woodburning stove, I will have to put in a simple bathroom and water. The house in the back of the studio is the main house.
The weeds got away from me this summer. The truth is, I am just tired of keeping up the house and property. I'm tired of the responsibility. Is that so bad?
