The ups and downs of buying a home

just keep coming. We are hoping to close next week, if we can get everything resolved. Buying a foreclosure is so much fun. The loan underwriter is having fits over the mold. Now we live in Southeast Idaho. We are a dry climate, our growing season in short, we still get a hard frost in June and starting in September. Yes we get hot but we do not have high humidity. So the dreaded black mold does not grow here, it cannot survive. However are lender is scared of mold, so we had to find a mold specialist that can test for mold to show that it is just the everyday "leaf" mold. First of all, remember mold is all around us, its everywhere. Its also necessary for the breakdown of plants, etc. Anyway we finally found someone who could test it, or at least take samples, to send to a testing lab in Utah. So now we wait for the results, which we already know, but the lender has to have a lab tell them. This of course means a delay as we had hoped to close today but that will not be happening. Hopefully early next week.
So much fun.
