Stuck without a home

Well, we are currently in a temporary apartment until they finish our carpet in the apartment we actually rented.  Turns out the “pet odor” wasn’t treatable with a carpet cleaner.  Soo… they are redoing the carpet.  Yeahhh… I am trying to remember to be grateful they’re not just masking the odor with deodorizer.  We have dishes, but no soap to clean them with.  We have beds and towels, but no change of clothes.  We have one roll of toilet paper and at least some samples of shampoo and conditioner.  I ended up washing my underwear in a sink, I was desperate.  But hey, we have somewhere to wait and somewhere to sleep and somewhere to shower.  It could be worse.

Instead of Adam working on the building today (which is why we are here) we will be taking the day off and waiting to get into our apartment.  Probably heading over to the Union Pacific station for a little Nebraska history.  Tomorrow we’re supposed to have thunder storms and then the next two days after that sweltering heat.  What a week to start!!

Still, our family is together and Sloane is doing better now that the packing is done.  Yesterday she melted on us several times as there was so much change going on.  We brought her toddler bed for some added security, but last night she had to sleep in a big big big bed.  It helped that we ran into Mike & Jess last night at Hy-Vee and Sloane was in heaven.

So for now we are not settled and we still have a bunch of unpacking to do and setting up.  Hopefully by tonight that will be changed and our new home will be a reality.  What can I learn from this?  Gratefulness.
