Bubbling with anticipation and watching the world blow by…

Tomorrow is our big ultrasound appointment and we are excited about it. We are dying to know if Tater Tot is a boy or girl and we know you are itching to know too…

Also, we called a local lender today and are waiting to hear if we are pre approved for a mortgage. We are either buying a home in the next few months or we’ll be hunting for a 2 year rental, either way we are preparing to get out of our current lease. Here is why:

Mold is natural everywhere that is why an outdoor control test is done. See all the black mold with a spot of white and a spot of yellow on the control test?

When you look at the two basement tests you can see much less black colored mold (that is naturally occurring in our area as shown by the test) and more yellow and white looking mold growth that is not present as much outdoors as proved by the control test. It looks to be a sign that we have some additional stuff growing and polluting the air within our home that isn’t abundantly present outdoors.

Seems to me like an obvious sign that the air quality within the home is worse than the air quality outside the home, what do you think?

Oh and it’s been raining for less than 24 hours and our basement is filling with water again. Took some more photos to document it all for our landlords.

Now we are having majorly high winds and rain. The power is flickering and turning on and off. I better get off the computer now. Keep your fingers crossed for us and subscribe to this blog so you’ll be the first to know when we share our Tater Tot news!

  • Bleh… the mold pictures make me want to throw up. I know it’s a bummer since you just did the whole cross-country move, but you guys need to get out of there!! I’m crossing my fingers that you’re able to buy a home, that would be so exciting and you can be assured there will be no mold problems, what with inspections and all. Can’t wait to hear the baby news!

  • OMG! That is just horrid. I hope you guys will be able to get out of there a.s.a.p. Those are not acceptable living conditions. I’m so sorry.

    Stay safe!

  • Eeuuhh!! Is that black mold? You be careful around that stuff especially with that special cargo you are carrying.

    Thanks for trying to help me with my comment issue.

  • I hope you get out of there sooner than soon! Either that are start a mushroom farm. It seems that conditions are favorable for growing fungi in your basement.

  • That water seepage is just disgusting, mold or not. It makes the space unusable! The mold add health concerns and if the landlord gives you any trouble, well… call me, I have ideas.

    One or two of them might even be legal 🙂

    I wish you the very best of luck in finding a place SOON!

  • Those pictures give me the CREEPS!

    You will be SO happy when you move in to your very own home! It’ll be worth the work.

    I’m voting that Tater Tot is a boy. But I’ve failed miserably at every baby sex guess I’ve made lately.

  • I’m still blown away that IN doesn’t have proper tenant coverage in this situation. Good luck with finding a place.

    And I hope that Tator Tot is cooperative and willing to assume the position at your US appt!!!

    I’m usually a good baby sex guesser, but I have to see you in person:) Can’t wait to hear!

    Beckys last blog post..Interesting or gross?

  • Yes, I think you should find new house soon. Seems water affect the air humidity of your house. It also may cause fungi. Not good for baby and pregnant mother.
