The Journey to AZ

 As of 9:47 am est... the career position sought was given full steam ahead, so the move to AZ is on and at full speed~~ Yikes
I want to thank all of those who stopped by and commented on my last post.. All who prayed and sent good wishes and thoughts..  I sure have fabulous bloggy pals and I appreciate you so much more than I can express..

  I've been in the process of having our present home brought up to the standards of a 2011 model home as possible and thats taken up most of 8 days and some nights but only a few more tweaks to go..

 The reality :: I meant Realty:: agent was here yesterday to look things over and measure--- get all the details and make out all his paperwork which I'll have to read over and sign..   I can honestly say its like having the world spin at 20 times its normal speed and holding on by my pinkies-- but Holding On...:)

 As it stands now I have about 45 days to
1. find a new Home
2. close on it
3. have the movers load everything up
4. get all the details and technicalities taken care of here
5.  get on a plane and beat the movers to AZ--:: please pray for good weather :: hehehehehe
6. I'm  having my pom babies brought by a transporting company that has great reviews about a week later in order to get everything in place and their room set up.. YES, they have their own room .. I know , their spoiled but this is how I raised them so I have only myself to blame. 
I'm sure when I have some time to sit down and get quiet, I'll cry and I'll go through a grieving period, which would only be normal when leaving the only home state I have known since my teenage years.. I dont fight that sort of thing as I truly believe grieving is just as much a part of life as anything else.. So I accept it and will take the time to do it..  Hopefully that wont last long and I will make me memories in a new place and look joyfully towards each new day .. I know for sure there are all sort of things to see and places to go..

I realize there are so many important things in life for ya'll to think about but if you can squeeze me in your prayers and good thoughts, I'd be so thankful...

I'll post the home as soon as we choose it and be sure to show ya'll the kitchen first hehehehe.. We blog ladies know what's vital, right:)

  1. Oh, Sonny...I feel for you with all of the chaos that is around you right now, but I am sure you will get through it just fine. You always have such a positive outlook. It may be hard to leave your home state, but look at where you are going! Everyone wants to live in Arizona!! Can I come for a visit??

    I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!


  2. I believe that AZ will be more like OZ with you there -- magical! We'll be visiting there in June as a retirement gift for my husband from his brother. Looking forward to the trip and will be thinking about you in your new home while we're there! Annie

  3. Wow, everything is happening so fast, Sonny! I'll be thinking of you and look forward to seeing your new place. My goal to get on the market is the end of this month. I just need to do a good cleaning and nag my son about his room, but otherwise we are good to go from the last time we went on the market. I am going to miss our house so much; we've been here over 20 years now, but we really need to downsize. Like you, I'm sure I'll be grieving when it actually happens.

  4. The good news about things happening fast is you have to jump in and just do it! Sounds like you're making lists and and getting things in order! I wish you a smooth move Sonny:@)

  5. Praying for you and that everything justs works out beautifully...moving is scarey..I've done several cross country moves-just give yourself time to adjust..grieve in your own time and get enough rest throughout the process! Best wishes to you Sonny! Can't wait to see what your new home will be like!

  6. Sonny, I do not know how you even found time to do a post! I know you are sooo busy, and that is occupying your mind as well as your time. I agree that grieving is important, and I agree that grieving the loss of a place where you've lived so many years is important. I also believe that you are the type of person who will pick herself up as soon as she possibly can and begin making new friends and enjoying your new environment (although I'm not sure your snowmen I sent you will feel at home in AZ!! they may have to be left there with a friend who will be reminded of you when they see them!) sendiing hugs and prayers your way. laurie
