House hunting Kentucky style…

Standard

Ahh, here it is 5:15 am (Kentucky time) on October 2nd…room is dark & FREEZING, hubs and puppies asleep…I woke up wide awake! Ugh!

So many emotions going on right now. It’s becoming real to me that this is really happening! I’m ELATED to be on this journey of moving to a new place, where I know zilch & know no one. But it’s also been VERY hard knowing I’m about to leave everyone and everything I have ever known. Yes, I have made 1…ONE…friend, so far, but back home I have MANY friends and family!!! S C A R Y !

I have figured out my way around a bit, around the hotel. But y’all, I. Am. Lost. I can’t remember where to turn to go here or how to get back to there…thank GOD for GPS!

We finally found a house that we are in LOVE with. We even went back to it about 3-4 times just to look at it again. {Its the one I posted to Facebook} But we found out yesterday that it is no longer available. {Insert tears here!}

So, now we’re back to square one. YAY! Sunday & Monday, we drove around looking at neighborhoods we liked/didn’t like. Online there were some that looked amazing, but when we got here and found them…yeah, they were nixed…FAST! We came here with 34 houses to look at and over the course of two days, I managed to mark off half of them. 😞

I know that it will take time to adjust to the move and the upcoming changes. But I have had several meltdowns a day, realizing that I’m moving and the awesome friends and family I won’t see as often. I won’t be able to have my precious nieces & nephews over for the afternoon or evening or go over to my sisters’ houses just to see/talk to them. I won’t be able to just hop in the car and buzz over to Jennifer’s (either of you!). I won’t be able to beg and plead with Leslie to come on a road trip adventure for the day with me. I wont have an amazing family to nanny for that blesses me daily (times TWO!) I won’t be able to meet up with Devin & Amy, Nikki & Maddie, Katie, my parents, or ANYONE for dinner on a whim.
Not seeing Arkansas stuff everywhere or see Razorbacks everywhere (as awful as they are right now, I will ALWAYS be a piggie…and you will NEVER see UK anything in my house!!!).
I have to find new doctors, new job, new friends…the list goes on…

It’s. So. Hard.

The only thing that keeps me going is knowing that I have a loving and supportive husband and a heavenly Father that has/will guide our steps in the direction we are supposed to go. THANK YOU, Jesus!!! He has provided sooooo much for us, so far, and I know He will continue.

Please join us in prayer for this trip to find the house/church/etc that we need (or at least be on that path!).

On a lighter note, we have KROGER and its a marketplace and its H U G E ! And by huge, I mean GINORMOUS!!! I couldn’t even fit the whole thing in a picture. And I was so excited I sent a picture of it to my parents. Haha!

Thank you for you support, love & prayers…we appreciate you!

💚 ya’ll, Collin & Andi
