The Sky is falling, the Sky is falling

Well last week during our house hunting process………during our 10 days of constant rain………..our ceiling started to drip water…………YES……..you heard me…………..a leak in our brand new house…………so we had to pull our house off the market and get some estimates done on the fixing up process.

After some estimates it was determined that it had been leaking for 6-8 months…..and our insulation just was soaking up the moisture until it could hold no more water and then it started to come through my ceiling and down my walls into my carpets, which we did not notice because it’s in a corner where my coach is sitting………the bottom of my coach started to rust as a result and when we pulled up our carpets………..there was mold………..so it’s been moist for awhile.

So the clean up process begins…………new insulation in the attic………we have to open up our entire west wall and replace the insulation & dry wall ……replace the sub floor in that corner…….replace the underlay & carpet in my living room…………the entire ceiling upstairs needs to be scraped……repainted and re finished with spandex. Sounds like a long drawn out process right? The sad thing is the day we noticed the leak we would have had someone who really wanted to buy our house………..and now I have been really just trying to keep myself from getting angry & depressed because I really wanted to move………..

We could have saved money on gas and our mortgage and all our debt would be taken care of………but I guess that is not going to happen for awhile.

So we are staying put at least until all the work on fixing things up is done!

That’s the update on the home front……keep us in your prayers, we need allot of patience right now! Needless to say this is what I feel like lately!
Blessings

  1. Well at least it happened before you had already made a firm deal…it might have gotten complicated. It’s just a little bump in the road…it’ll be fixed in no time!!!

  2. Everything happens for a reason, God must’ve wanted you to leave just yet. I know it’s all easier said than done, but keep the faith sister, He is in control of this whole thing.
