Good Morning from HOT Arizona!!!7:13 AM
We've been here since July 2nd but only got our internet connected today.
I'm sure you're wondering how the move went and for the most part it was good, I was able to survive 15 hours in a car with two bored cranky kids.....THAT is a feat in itself.
As for Arizona, well, what to say, other than I don't like it???? I really really don't like it?????
I think being in Idaho for 10 years and getting used to the 4 seasons really spoiled me because I got here and all they have is HEAT and I'm not just talking about 90 degree heat, look if you want to know what it feels like try turning on your oven to about 450 degrees and then walk up to it and open the door and stand right there. THAT is what it feels like everytime I step outside, it's making me cranky and frustrated and I'm not a happy camper.
Unfortunately this is the life that I chose, a military wife, and we don't always like where we go or where we move but we have to suck it up and make the most of it.
We finally got our internet and all our belongings yesterday, right now I'm surrounded by boxes, I don't think there's a space I can squeeze through without knocking one down. I'll be unpacking and redecorating for the next million years, wanna come help???
We didn't get the house that we wanted, they told us they had a few for us to look at including one in the neighborhood we really liked, but when we showed up magically, they had ONE house to look at and it's the one we're in right now. It's not a bad house, I actually like it because it's a one level and has no stairs which you know when you have little ones is a hassle to have around.
I haven't been able to take any pictures, I don't think you want to see all my boxes do you???
I did take lots of pictures on the trip here, we went from Idaho straight down to Nevada which led us through Las Vegas. Man is that place crazy, I'm not a "lots of traffic" driver, I actually cringe thinking of driving on highways and busy roads so when I was slammed into the middle of Vegas traffic I was hyperventilating, trying to stick behind hubby's truck only to have tons of cars just cut in between us. I think I may have cried a few times but for the most part I was really good. LOL
Right after we left Vegas we got to travel through Boulder City, NV which I absolutely fell in love with. I think I'll be retiring to that city, it's a small town, cute little streets, right near Lake Mead and it's just the kind of place I love.
We also got to go over Hoover Dam which is just gorgeous, a little intimidating to drive through but beautiful none the less LOL
I have more pictures to share but I need to get this house unpacked....I just wanted to check in with everyone and say hi. I will be back tomorrow with my Slow Cooking Thursday so I hope you will all join me :)
Have a wonderful day everyone!!!
