Random Update

Not having internet is hard on a blogger.
Not only can you not blog, but it is impossible to keep up with everyone elses blogs.
I think I am caught up on about half now.
If you are not seeing comments from me that you regularly would, know I am still reading, I probably don't have as much time to leave comments trying to keep up, but soon, very soon!
(I hope).

Anywho.......we are still homeless, but have been looking at this house.

It is an early 1900's house.
It is the kind of house I have always wanted to turn into a Bed & Breakfast.
It has all the potential for it that is for sure.
The house its self is a sturdy house, but the lady who owned it before passed away over a year or more.
She was in and out of the nursing home for about 2-3yrs before that, so there is some things needed done.
She was "society" for this small podunk town it is in.
She was an entertainer, and what one would have called in her "day" an "old maid".
Never married.  She had very "unique" style.

Anyways, about the house. 
There is a formal living room in the from to the left with a fireplace that has a marble mantle.
A formal dining room, a large den with room off to the side with a jacuzzi tub in it.
A large foyer with open stairwell.  A half bath with a laundry room.  A smaller kitchen with huge pantry, an eating area.  There are closest gallore!!!
Upstairs there are three bedrooms.  It originally had 4 bedrooms.  She had converted one into a large bathroom adjacent to the master bedroom,  and the other half of it into a huge walk in closet.
The master bedroom also has a porch that was inclosed into a study.  The rooms are big.
And BRIGHT at this point.  The lady loved wallpaper.  The master bath also has a large clawfoot slipper tub.  It is fire engine red.  The room has teal carpet.  I had to question her thinking on that one.
Lots of potential.  The price could be right.  I guess we will see.
(it also has a dirt floor basement, which kind of freaks me out.  also an attic which we didn't go into)

That is the update on the house hunting.
We are still wanting to go to Norway, but it looks like it will not be for a year or two.

The weather here in Kentucky is HOT, HOT, HOT.  MUGGY, MUGGY, MUGGY!!!
I am ready for fall myself. 

Work is going ok.  Getting use to my new job.  Trying to train the new girl for my old job at the same time.
This is making for long stressful days, but I will get through it I am sure.
I can't wait.  I am ready to do just my "new" job!


I'm Backkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm back!!!
Well kind of sort of in a way.
See, we have NO INTERNET!!!  I know, is that not like one of the worst feelings? hahaha.
The only time I have access to the internet where I can actually have time to use it, is at Momma's.
So let me do a quick catch up and we'll go from there shall we????

We are still homeless from the flood.  We are staying at our Church in a nice 5th wheel camper.  Which is great, don't get me wrong, but home, well Home is Home, know what I mean??
Nannie and Josh are with Mom & Dad and since Keith is still at home, it made for very tight quarters.
We had home insurance, but not flood insurance (since we were above flood plain) so our insurance would not cover anything!!!  I mean not the first thing.  So basically we were able to salvage a few clothes, and my dishes.  It's kind of like when you are just starting out married.  Except the stress is much different, and well, it's not such a "happy" time.
We have already received some funds from FEMA would should help some but basically covers only your inside stuff such as washer, dryer, fridge, stove, etc. 
So now we are in the house looking again. 
Now that in it's self brings me back to our trip to Norway to be with the Speers. 
Who are missionaries from our Church organization
For several years we have had a huge burden for missions.  God has dealt with us for a long time about it.  So we finally went (to Norway) to see.  I have to honestly say when I stepped off the plane, I felt like I was home for the first time ever.  It was an amazing and odd feeling at the same time.  How can you grow up somewhere called "home" and suddenly it not feel like home? 
This now feels like home.

I cried almost the whole 24hr trip home.
I cried all day the next day.
Needless to say my Momma is not thrilled.
She is happy knowing God is calling us for a great work.
She is not happy knowing her only daughter wants to move 4,344 miles across an ocean to do it.
Now it is waiting on God to open up all the doors.
We have to find jobs before we can get a visa, which will only be good for 6months.
Then you have to continually reapply.

So in the mean time, do we buy a house?
Move closer to work, or continue to drive an hour?
So many questions, so few answers it seems.
I prayed for direction and confirmation about going/staying in Norway.
God graciously gave us both.
He just forgot to let us in on the details.
Until then, we will just wait upon the Lord.
