Update on the House

Lots of prayer needed! The guys were here today and they informed me that due to some issues with the house they will need to tip the house. This means that not only do we have to be out but EVERYTHING WE OWN needs to be moved out as well because the house will tip. Which means 2-3 days to move everything we own to somewhere and we get to be homeless for a month. My parents have one spare bedroom but they are experiencing a lot of water problems right now and don't have drinking water. On top of all of this, our good friends move away to Kansas in a week.

I was totally prepared for the inconvenience of living in a high rise with construction going on underneath me but I wasn't prepared to hear that not only would we be homeless but that we'd have to move everything as well. This is going to be a tough week.


Our landlord is going to try to find us a place to live during the construction on the house since he had assured us we could live there. He's looking into it today. The odds are slim since it is nearly impossible to get a rental in this town, and especially a temporary rental, unless it's in a meth neighborhood. It took us almost a year to find this rental and even then it was not advertised due to it being my cousin's husband's place. He did say we have some time so a 2 day move isn't going to happen; which is such a relief. But inspite of having time, the thought of moving twice in a month's time is crushing. I'm having to go back and look over my posts on suffering. There's a huge part of me that feels everything that I've worked at for the last 9 months we've lived here is being undone. The flowers I've planted, the yard we fertilized, the walls I decorated so carefully, the organizational things I've done to make our rooms more functional, the routine and schedule we've created, the opportunity to host guests and serve others with our home, the life we've known here.

Oh, Linds, Yikes! Anything I can do to help? (Really? Anything short of driving over to help?)

We've got a guest room and our water works again. . . :)

So very many hugs to you. It's very hard to lose your home. It's very hard to move. It's very hard to live out of suitcases. I am so sorry you are given this trial.
