Okay.... so we are very happy that we decided on getting a meth test. And actually Robert's granddad before he got sick and passed away told us in his very gruff voice that is SO him "Make sure you test for meth". We did, especially after finding out from the neighbors that the previous owner is in JAIL for drugs and had druggie friends living there. Nice. In short, the test was positive. Which means we loose money on the inspections, appraisal and a few other things, but we are better off than the seller. I feel really bad for them. They are stuck with the property and have to pay to have it decontaminated. There were just too many issues apparently with the place. What a bomb they made of the place too. The toilet leaked and apparently they never had it fixed so it flooded out the apartment, but they were most likely all too high to notice.
I am very grateful we know this now. It also makes me very sad that there are people that get involved with things like this. It ruins them and it ruins other people too. They become so addicted and so selfish that they think what they do only hurts them. They sell and ruin those who buy and they hurt all who have to clean up after their mess. It is really unfortunate. And not to make light of this, but I have to be grateful for being able to back out of a potentially harmful situation. And I will lighten it up by adding a cartoon.
Now we have to see about extending our stay longer in our apartment so that we can continue the search and pray that we find where we need to move. Your prayers and kind words and thoughts on our behalf have been appreciated. We know something will work out in the end.
