July’s Movie & money for charity (maybe yours!) & another life update

The saga of the last post continues with no end in sight.  The mold remediation company has decided to stop work.  This after they contaminated the whole house and have left 5 rooms completely torn up with mold to still be treated.  Not gonna sugarcoat it, it’s been a nightmare.  The outside front of our house is just as big a disaster, but at least that company has bent over backwards to help us.  We can’t live here and haven’t for over a month, although Jason often stays here to work at night, so we are renting a condo 30 minutes away.  We have taken no possessions but clothes as I’m in the middle of purging the house since it must be completely empty of everything for the final cleaning.  That may not happen until the middle of September and that’s only a soft commitment at this point.  We have to hire more people to come in and fix what’s been done, I’m told now, much of which was unnecessary.

And then, to top it all off, Jason’s mother passed away this week.  It was not unexpected, but the timing couldn’t have been worse for Jason.  Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.  A lot of stress around here and I worry about him.

Somehow in the midst of all of this we managed to see two movies, even getting Gage to the theater once.  The show must go on.

    Seems a bit sketchy to just stop work like that. Have you contacted the Better Business Bureau?

    I was out of town and missed your last post and will go back to read it now. What you’re going through sounds horrible. I’m so sorry to hear about Jason’s mother. You’re all in our thoughts and prayers.

    I haven’t see either movie.

    Oh Stacy – I’m so sorry about Jason’s mother. Even if it was not unexpected, it’s still tough. Especially with all the stress of the house. Thinking of all you. Take care, my friend. This too shall pass eventually. Big, big hugs. Wish I was near and could help you with the house.

    Oh no Stacy, I am so sorry to read about Jason’s mom on top of all of this house stress.I just learned that my daughter’s friend is facing a similar mold issue after carpet cleaners had over saturated their subfloors in the process. My thoughts are with you and the family.
