The good, the bad, and the ugly

We finally closed on our house today!! Hooray!! So we now have a house and we are starting to move things in. In fact, I am sitting in the house waiting for a truck load of stuff to arrive so I can start moving in! This moving bit has been quite a roller coaster. The mold is gone from our house now, but as I was starting to pull stuff out of my parent's garage I am finding that we are going to have to throw out some of our stuff that has gotten moldy from sitting in a warm, humid, dark garage for the past two months. The most upsetting thing so far is the couch. I am still trying to research to see if we can salvage it, or if we just have to junk it. So I will have to give an update later to let you all know the extent of the damage. So the good, the bad, and the mold is the ugly. I am greatly missing the desert at this point in time. Gotta help move!

I'm so glad you are finally moving in! It is so fun to set up your first house and realize how much room you really have! Bummer about the couch though. Take Care!

Happy moving day!! Wow didn't think about your stuff getting moldy but you did have quite a bit of rain back there not too long ago ( all the flooding and what not) I guess that's what happens. I would be bummed too. Hope you can figure something out! :)
