The results are in...
No cause for celebration I am afraid. The house did NOT pass inspection. We have mold in the garage and not just surface like I had thought. Much deeper. Then the inspector said that under the house was like a trampoline. Need a sump pump or a curtain drain. along with a furnace, kitchen updates,dishwasher, move the washer and dryer in the house and a host of things she wanted to do. All costing money and she is tighter than bark on a tree. So she is walking away. The agent is still hopeful but I know Mom when she says no, she means NO!
Mom will have to fly out here again and that costs her a fortune. She has to kennel her big dog. So don't know when that will happen. I can only hope that there are more homes available when the time comes and that means for someone to loose their house. How sad is that? I feel terrible about that, really I do but the only way Mom will get a suitable house. Unless there is a miracle. Which I know happens.
So right now I am pretty bummed. I miss her terribly even though she drives me bats. She had a big scare not to long ago one in Dec and one last month. The first in Dec they thought she was having a heart attack, the other was the symptoms of one but was a severe allergy reaction to Lysol spray. They even had to put her on steroids. So having her here is a must, not just a wish. Not only that but I am the only one who could/would take care of her if she became ill or lost her mind. We already know she will be deaf and hearing aids will not help. All nerve damage.
Well have to go hug my hubby. He is cleaning his room for Mom to live in even though that isn't gonna happen just yet. She is too stubborn. Then off to cook dinner as I am starved and have class tonight. Got to scoot.
Enjoy another picture taken by my best friend.
