Onward to Arizona!



I thought about starting a blog for a while now, and a few weeks ago a friend told me I should too...and here we all are.

C and I are getting ready to move to Arizona together in about a week...which we just found out about at the beginning of this month. We’ve been doing the long-distance, back-and-forth, flights every other week thing for almost a year and a half (this time - plus another 6 months of that a few years ago), and I think I speak for both of us when I say we’re ready to be done with that (Southwest Airlines might not be as thrilled, but I think they’ll manage).

Since we found out about C’s new job, it’s been a frantic scramble to get everything in place in a very short amount of time. We are hoping to buy a house soon, so we wanted a short-term lease to get our feet on the ground while we looked and he started his new job. The search started with some online forms, and led us to finding the place we wanted with two weeks to go before we wanted to arrive in Arizona. It was a little weird leasing somewhere to live without ever having seen it, but we didn’t have the time to get out there to look with everything else going on.

Once that was in place it was time to figure out how to get two homes worth of stuff from El Paso and Orange County to Phoenix. After some plan changes, we decided to move all of my stuff (most of which is currently occupying my mom’s garage) into the apartment, and store C’s stuff while we’re there (his furniture is VERY heavy, while mine is mostly IKEA).

Well, wham, bam, thank you ma’am, we are ready to both head from our respective locations next week and get settled in at our new place just before C starts his new job!

It’s been a long time coming for us to be together in the same place. When we first met in 2005, I don’t think either one of us thought we would be doing this in 2015. Cheers to the future of togetherness!
