Just a little update on our new adventure in life. Steve Starts working as a dentist in Illinois next week. We've had housing lined up there for about 3 months. We had found a house (with much difficulty) and we were set to move in this week. We had utilities set up in our name (with deposits), plane tickets for me and the girls to go out after Steve and his brother Kyle had unpacked a bit for us. We had bought and sold furniture/appliances according to our needs in that house, etc.. But the day before our moving truck came our future landlord called and informed us that after she had moved to her new location, she discovered that the internet was too slow. So she was no longer willing to rent the house to us because she wanted to move back in.
This would not be a huge problem somewhere else (just the $1000+ lost money of various sources). But in middle-of-nowhere Illinois it is a big problem to try to find decent housing. We've been working on it for a week from a distance with no success. Our stuff arrives there on the 13th and steve is leaving tomorrow to seek housing for us (so much for Moab plans). It is very possible that he won't find anything available for a while in which case we girls will stay here in Utah until he does. Far from ideal, but we'll manage. A bump in the road on the road of life.
