Goodbye Arizona!

 
I am beat!

Emotionally, mentally, physically.  Just completely beat.

Finishing up the house for the inspection which has been a pain in the behind, but I'll tell you all about that later because as with any move there's always some wrenches flying around.

Within a few hours we'll be on the road to Idaho.

I am praying and hoping and begging God to help me with the drive because I'm so tired and SO sore, my fingers are swollen, I have bruises up and down my arms and I'm not sure I'm ready for a 13 hour drive.

But aside from that, we're fine, and we're excited to finally be going home.

Arizona hasn't exactly been my favorite place on earth but it's taught me so many lessons, some which I think I really needed to learn and hence why I've always said that God does things for a reason and he places you in certain situations so that you can grow.

And if there's one thing I can say that Arizona has done for me, is to teach me some very important lessons which will be with me for the rest of my life.

So I say thank you Arizona, thank you for the 7 years, thank you for the ups and downs, the hell scorching heat, the beautiful desert, the stunning sunsets and the ability to get closer to God.

See you in Idaho!!!!!

I am sooo happy for you. I have wanted to go back too. I'm sure your pilot light will kick in and the drive will be exciting. Your going home!

Hope your travel goes nice and easy. Can't wait to hear how everything goes. (I've never moved. Lived in the same home since I got married almost 53 years ago.)

Have a safe trip and watch out for the crazies on the road.

I've been off-line for awhile and for some reason I thought about you this evening and decided to see what you're up to. I find that you are doing almost exactly the same thing we are: moving in the scorching heat! Ours was a short distance move, but I am exhausted. I hired movers for the first time (we fed ours Subway too!), but we're still making trips back and forth for little things that didn't make it onto the truck. I'll be glad when we are settled in and can get back to our real life.
Have a safe trip; you'll be home soon.

I'm glad that is behind you now. Just relax on your drive. Stop when you need to and don't push yourself. It's another fun adventure if you make it so. :)
