Okay, quite honestly I'm really sick, tired and exhausted from this whole ordeal. Basically a building inspector came over and said yes, there is water behind the wall, and it needs to be dealt with. So now the landlord has to go to the construction company and tell them to fix it in the next 15 days because that's the expiry of their guarantee. So not only am I stuck here, but we are stuck living like this for possible 15 days or more, knowing the drywall is going to be cut out, then replaced, and then painted.

So then I called the landlord and was explicit about how they need to have mould removal specialists so that my allergies are not affected (as they have been for the past few days). Well his wife called back, all nasty, and basically shot legal-ese at me for 5-10 minutes saying that it wasn't their problem. Beg to differ hon. I called the Rental Board. Anyhow, get the work done, and get this over with, and get the place sold and get out of my site.

I can't wait for this place to sell now and have the new landlord. That might give me an out.

On the plus side.....a layout using my kit below, Dream Board, is being published in Scrapbooking Memories. The layout is by the talented Rowena Grall (who's a CT member), who used the kit to create her own dream board - the cover of Scrapbooking Memories. Well she didn't make the cover, but they are publishing the layout! So dream boards work folks!

Way to go Row! So proud of you!

Hi! your rental situation sounds a nightmare! poor thing! We are renting too, which I hate so much.
I don't know how things are in Canada and the States, but here in Australia lately more and more people who can't afford and don't even own the house they live in are buying 2 or 3 investment properties and when it all falls apart on them...they the poor tenants have to move. It is so annoying...we have had to move 3 times in the last 6 years because of landlords selling their homes and we may have to be moving again because of this. Sorry to vent, lol, but it is a real problem here. And don't get me started on the price of rental accomodation either....we are in a modest house, but we are paying higher than an average morgage for a house...and that seems to be the standard pricing system here in is dearer to rent than to own your own home! Just makes me so angry...anyway I hope you sort your issues out so your life can get back to normal. :)
