This post is pretty much all business...I've got good news and bad news.

The Bad News: We heard back on the mold tests in our house.  The air itself tested positive for 5 different kinds of mold, the levels were exteremly high, high enough to cause arsenic poisening.  I thank God every day that my son is healthy.  That we are all healthy.  The kitchen is the worst, which we knew.  It needs to be completely replaced.  The rest of the house, and all the contents all need to be treated, we still don't know exactly what this will entail.  The thought of someone going through all the contents of my home is so invasive and disturbing.  I feel...violated?  Is that weird? 

All of the insulation needs to be removed a replaced, as it is impossible to clean the mold spores out of fiberglass insulation.
The property group that sold our home is currently reviewing the test results, and they have final say as to whether or not they approve the cost of making the home they sold us liveable. 

The Good News: The seller just updated his facebook page with pictures of his new Lamborghini. 

In case you were wondering? Yes, I am a little bitter right now.  That's hard to see when you know that your home is hanging in the balance for a fraction of that cost.

**People have asked us why we didn't sue, and honestly?  We didn't want to sue.  We just want the problem fixed, we feel that that is what we deserve.  We didn't (and still don't) want to ruin their business, or to be awarded their money. That's really NOT how we are, that's not what drives us.  We just want to go home.


  1. uggg!! That is so frustrating. Thank God you guys are still healthy. Keep your head up. Things will turn around.... eventually... :)

  2. Sounds like a dose of gasoline, a match or two and your camera to recall the celebration of your house going up in flames.
    I would be heading to a motel. I hope you work this out and perhaps get the heel out of there. Mold is scary stuff!

  3. Oh I feel for you girl! I hope it gets better soon!

  4. Oh Boo! This is awful news. I'm w/Amy on this one.

  5. oh yeah, we definitely arent living there! still squatting in moms basement...SO COOL.

  6. wow! that is crazy! i never heard of this before!! i hope it all turns out well in the end!
