If ever

If life ever takes you away from your current home and moves you to a better place. Don't EVER let anyone stay in your house, if you have to move before your house is sold! It can end up costing you thousands of dollars that you don't have. That is where we are today on the sale of the house in Yakima. We are just beside ourselves with frustration.

We had the people that were staying in the house move out. In there process of moving out they shampooed the carpet however they turned off the thermostat so it was 50 some degrees when Bruce got there. This left the carpets wet and spongy. Hopefully the moldy smell will go away if not.........sigh. If Bruce had not gone over yesterday and we had waited until next week......I can't even think about it! Oh and they turned off water inside the house. Hello, it is winter! You don't turn off your water! arrrgghhhh, I could go on but I won't.

So lesson learned, don't trust your home to anyone that you believe has your best interests at heart. That is what we did when we trusted the Home Caretakers of Yakima. God is going to have to show us what to do. After all He is the only one we can truly trust.

No doubt that if they are a business, they would have liability insurance..
The potential for mold is too great they would risk further action, so I would insist they replace that carpet now, Juel!

I sorry, honey.
