Temporary Hiatus is Over!!

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

I'm sorry I have been MIA on my little blog.  I missed blogging so much, but just really haven't had time to write or even read blogs.  At the end of June, my little town of Yorkville was hit by a massive storm.  As a result, lots of trees were down, lots of property damage, and this {below} happened to our apartment building roof.   Yep, that's pretty much the entire roof in our parking lot.  After being temporarily displaced, a large tarp was placed on our roof, being held down by 2x4s.  Fast forward three weeks, our roof is not fixed yet.  We received massive amounts of rain one Wednesday night {which happened to be my birthday, go figure}.  The second rain-out leaked all units in our building through the electrical {yeah, that's safe, right?}  So needless to say, we were temporarily displaced...again.


Now, three weeks later, we are finally back home {for now at least}.  This was the scene last Saturday {below} when construction finally began on a new roof.  It was the most progress I had seen in weeks that I almost cried.  Although the new roof is on our apartment, this adventure is {sadly} not over.  We will have to move into a new apartment {hopefully this weekend} so the drywall can be replaced.  This move will hopefully a {semi-permanent} move until we find a new house next May/June.

I honestly am so blessed to be safe and have no damage to any of our belongings.  Our little furry family is safe and sound and it is so nice to be back at home.  While this has been quite an exhausting ordeal, it has made my husband and my relationship even stronger, and has showed us the true meaning of home.

I will be back soon to "regular posts" so I hope you will stay tuned and thanks for following along.
