Sister wives

So, there's been an upside to this whole homeless gig. I've discovered I'd like to become a sister wife. Ok, not exactly. 

But, while staying with friends, this awesome thing happened. My friend's daughter took a morning nap, I stayed home, she went to the gym. Later, my kid took a nap. She stayed home and I got a pedicure. (We can discuss my priorities later).

It's the small things, right? But also SO MUCH FREEDOM. 

Just imagine the possibilities. Trading off dinner prep, laundry, housekeeping. It's a win. Seriously.

Recently a little boy playfully walked down a hallway. Yesterday the same little boy made his way up the same but oh-so-different walk. 

Polar vortex. Pipes froze. Pipe burst. Gallons and gallons of water flooded our ceilings and walls from our upstairs neighbor. 

Our home is unlivable during construction. Thank goodness for loving family and friends. This winter in Chicago has been a doozy, that's for sure.
