Today marks two years since I started this blog with the post linked HERE. I wrote that blog as a reflection of the time since my house flooded…documented HERE. I’ve been MIA for the last twelve plus months. Click HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE if you want to see why. Life is busy. I know this. You know this. Your house floods. Your mom dies. You have a baby. Somehow, the world keeps spinning. But some things don’t change.
THREE years ago today, my home flooded. We lost everything. It was an epic Noah’s Arc type flood that destroyed our lives and set us on a path we never could have expected. Three years later, we are still at a standstill. The governmental help that was promised has yet to be executed. WHAT? How can that be? I’m still unsure. We were promised a buy out. We have been shifted list-to-list between the Village and the County. No one is in any hurry except those of us who are homeless. What can you do but wait?
Well, you can plan for the future that WILL come. Come hell or high water (pun intended), we will come out the other side. We have purchased a new home for those wondering. It needs a WHOLE LOTTA LOVE. I want to start documenting the process of renovating our new home here on this blog. When it is complete, it will be a reveal worthy of any HGTV show.
We are proud that through all of this, we have kept our heads above water with the generosity of family and friends. We are moving forward while the little Lisle house stands still. Stay tuned for pictures and updates as we move long on our new journey.
