In my last blog post, I alluded to the few days that we would have to be out of our home while our sewer and water were unhooked. Well, those few days have multiplied. So here we are, more than a week later, still wandering the earth (or at least the central portion of Illinois) with no real place to call home. Because of some unfortunate sewer issues (I'll spare you the gory details), we still cannot move back into our home. We spent Monday through Friday of last week with Zach's parents, Friday and Saturday in Chicago, and have been with my parents since Saturday night. And as much as we have enjoyed the quality time with family, the readily available washer and dryer, and the home cooked meals, we are more than ready to be back in our own house. Luckily, Staley has transitioned from home to home to home with ease. (Of course, a girl can't complain about extra love and attention from grandparents.) Hopefully my next blog post will be about our return home. But until then, we will live out of our suitcases with the dream of beautiful basement, a lush green yard, and a fully functioning sewer line on the horizon.
