Prayer request and trip update

We made it to West Virginia! We've been here for a week and a half just about. (I think! Time is no longer my friend and I usually do not even know what day of the week it is.) We've been staying in motels. We are currently in a small hotel that is a little roomier than the motels have been, but not over-priced. Thank you Jesus!

We've been staying in motels since we left CA and it's not a fun way to live. Better than being homeless though.

We signed a contract for the property we want. But there's been another problem we are having to wait out, on our end, before we can close. it's causing lots of stress, anxiety, and worry, and longer hotel living. We need a home to live in. We need homeschooling to get back on track.

We would love it if you'd help us pray over this matter please!


Summersville Lake, near the property. Looks pretty low! Someone told us they drain it some after each summer season. Have not verified that yet.

I didn't get any blogging done on the trip. Obviously! LOL. Wifi is not that fab out in the boonies or in busy motels, or in the whole northern section of AZ, and some of NM. We enjoyed getting to drive in lots of different states, some not for very long, some for almost the whole length of the state. America is beautiful, I highly recommend going out and seeing some of it before it's too late!

West Virginia is gorgeous, there's so many trees and hills. Reminds me of where we lived in Colorado. People are also really nice here. Strangers start talking to you like you're old friends. It's very refreshing and totally opposite from California where most people wouldn't even smile back or say hi back and preferred to give you a dirty look because you are bothering them.

I can't wait to share more pics and stories, but that will have to wait until we move to the property.

Oh and something exciting for me, that only my primitive friends would understand, there are actually prim shops here! I'm hoping this means I can start swapping again after we get settled and I can unpack my craft supplies. Two shops are very close to the property, but I have not had the pleasure of visiting them yet. I visited two inside a mall in Beckley, but every single thing had a made in China tag. :( Is that pretty common? I know I can source made in America/handmade on Etsy and online, but I also like to support independent brick and mortar.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving, we'll be eating at Bob Evans, thankful they will be open and serving dinner. :)

PTL you have more or less arrived safely & I do pray matters will resolve quickly for your new home.
How exciting to have real prim shops nearby & hopefully they will have handmade treasures in there too.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Prayers sent for you to be at home soon. There are quite a bit of prim shops in VW and in Western Ohio. North Carolina is more pricey. Bob and I travel that route many times on our visit to my nephews. That lake looks beautiful!!! Janice
