Sick for the first time in two years :(

Over the weekend our 13 year old, my husband and I all came down with a horrendous cold (head, ears, nose and chest all seem to be throbbing or running). The three little ones had a fever and slept a day then were fine. So far everyone else is staying healthy, thankfully. Hope that continues!

We discovered mold in three bedrooms and in the girls bathroom. Not sure if this is contributing. Our landlords came to check it out but didn't find anything in the attic but something has to be causing it regardless of the newer roof and nothing being in the attic, you know?

I know I've been run down....not sure how to rectify that where there's so much to do.

So it was a sick day here today.....

    It is great that you went two years without getting sick! I hope recover quickly. I hope that you guys can figure out the cause of the mold and get it properly cleaned up. We had a mold problem this summer/fall and it took awhile to get it all figured out and cleaned up.

    Me too. Our landlords were going to look into it. The thing is they have treated the girls bathroom twice already and the mold keeps coming back and the girls say they are using the fan when they shower. It's rather baffling.

    We dealt with mold in our townhouse before we moved out and again when we sold it last year. It was a bit costly for the mold remediation guy and paying him to fix it but when the inspection revealed mold in the attic, we knew it had to be dealt with. We were sick every other month with the first bout of mold and didn't want the new owners going through the same thing. Not everyone takes mold seriously though, unfortunately.
