Well friends, here we are, the last week in Arizona. Thought it would NEVER get here, come to think of it I vividly remember my first week here. I cried, I threatened my husband with divorce LOL I was soooooo miserable and I just really hated the base and the place and the people.
But 7 years later and I survived, now I won't say I grew to love it here because that would be a lie, but I grew to accept it and just go with it. I will tell you that I never thought I would miss it, but I think I'm going to miss my house and some of the area around here, especially Flagstaff and Prescott, Tombstone and Grand Canyon.
Next week Monday I'll be moving into the new house, so I'm not sure if I'll have a Happy Homemaker Monday post up. I may just because we'll be in the hotel and our walk through is not until 9am and since I wake up super early, it may give me something to do :)
The weather.....Miserably hot. Thankful that it's my last week in the constant triple digits. Heading back home to some rain and cooler temperatures and I'm pretty happy about that :)
Right now I am....Sitting on my couch with a nice hot cup of coffee. I JUST woke up to a sea of ants in my kitchen and living room....now you know my yearly struggle with these beasts. UGH! Got them taken care of and hoping I don't have to deal with them again.
Thinking....About everything that is going on this week, we have to finish all the packing today and make sure the house is ready for the movers who are coming tomorrow to pack, and then Wednesday to move everything out. Thinking about the long road trip, thinking about how I'll feel when I see that Idaho State Line and just thinking about the future in general.
On my reading pile....Only the devotionals.
On my TV.....Been watching Unforgettable on the laptop, am almost to the end of the first season, and actually enjoying this show so I can't wait for the new season to start.
The White Queen - Episode 2
What I found while surfing the net....Everything I've searched lately has been road trip related. I don't know if any of you know of this site, Gas Buddy, I'm sure most of you do, but it's a great tool to figure out how much gas you're going to spend on the trip. Let's just say that between my car and my husband's gas guzzler of a truck, we'll be spending close to $400 just on the gas. YIKES!
On the menu for this week....It's an eat everything from the fridge and freezer week. Monday - Homemade Fettucine with Maple Sausage Spaghetti Sauce
Tuesday - Ordering Pizza while the movers are here
Wednesday - No clue
Thursday - No clue
Friday - On the road
Saturday - On the road
Sunday - Out to eat
On my to do list....Finish packing the back of the truck.
Remove all pictures, shelves from walls
Place everything we're taking in the hallway bathroom and make sign for door so movers don't touch any of it
Last minute appointments
Hubby is finishing the outprocessing< In the craft basket....Making some owl crochet projects, trying out some patterns for the Etsy shop.
Looking forward to this week....Being done with the move on this side, getting on the road, and being one step closer to starting our new life.
Looking around the house....Boxes, boxes and more boxes. Empty walls, tons of pictures and shelves up against the walls and a sad looking house.
From the camera....
Lots of this kind of thing going on
On my prayer list.....Me, praying for patience and for energy to keep going, I'm pretty worn out and I'm just ready to crash, but can't quite yet.
For my family, for this huge adjustment we're making.
Family and friends going through different issues right now.
Bible verse, Devotional....“I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live,” (Psalm 104:33 NIV).
