This photo is a perfect capture of the majority of my past week. Unfortunately, after a full investigation, our new home is riddled with mold and therefore, unlivable for our standards.

We are currently staying 30 minutes south of our old neighborhood with my cousin who has generously opened his home to our family, and my days have consisted of multiple trips back and forth between towns in an attempt to keep Wito’s school and playdate schedule intact. My car and my very pregnant belly have become quite close.

Newsflash. Not having a home is the pits. I miss my bed, I miss my routine, I miss my neighborhood and I miss not feeling completely reliant on others for a roof over my head.

Hopefully we will find a new and wonderful home very soon. Onward ho!

    oh no! i am so sorry to hear that. what a big pain in the derrière. (but… why oh why didn’t you get the place inspected before you moved in?)

    It’s a rental, and we were up to our necks with other maintenance/home improvement issues at the time.

    Oh, Sarah. I still can;t believe it. Especially after all of the WORK that D put in, on top of all of the pain-in-the-assedness of being homeless.

    I hope you guys find something soon. xoxo

    Oh no, I’m so sorry! Total nightmare. But at least you found the mold before anyone got sick. Kind of scary to think about. Hang in there, I’ll cross my fingers that you find something fabulous and soon!!

    I’m sorry that your house has not worked out, especially since you had started unpacking. another thing- mold should not be livable for anyone, hope they fix the problem before someone else tries to live there. good luck finding a new home and getting settled.
