Hurry up and wait

We now officially have a home. Trouble is, it's not ready yet. There are lots of changes being made and problems being fixed before we can move in but we've been promised we can move in by next monday.
Me and the girls game out to be with Steve. If he has to pay for a hotel room anyway we might as well be together.
Kiera and especially Lydia have been very insecure about all of this. Lydia frequently says "I want to go to Lydia's room!". When we went camping while in Utah we walked into my parents' trailer and she said "This is Illinois!!" We pulled up infront of a museum today and she said "is THIS our new house?" She is terribly confused about what is happening and is very clingy. She has also been sucking her thumb a bit and asking for sippy cups (which we were done with 6 months ago). Kiera displays her frustration by screaming.
But it is not all doom and gloom around here. Since we had to be in a hotel anyway, we decided to go somewhere fun. So we've been in St. Louis for the past 5 days. We've been to the Zoo, children's museum, boating, and swimming almost every day.
But we can't wait to get into our house!!!

I can't wait for you to be in a house either. Monday right? I'll feel a lot better about your situation when you're settled. Parents can't stop worrying about their kids.

Oh thats hard on little people. Well, hopefully it will all be worth it. I'm glad that you are at least living it up!

I'm glad you have a house and that Steve started working! I hope your little girls love their new house.
