The moving craziness has begun! By some miracle, we found a house to rent (pictures to come). And by me, I really mean Jason. And actually, I don't even mean Jason. His brother Brian found the house, and then, because Jason had to work, Brian met my Aunt Melissa (a real estate agent) at the house and took copious pictures. Based on the pictures, we decided to rent it. Jason decided at the last minute that perhaps at least one of us should actually see the place before we sign a lease, so he swung by today on his way to the leasing office. It took a series of scans and faxes for both of us to sign all the paperwork, and we still technically have to be approved by the landlord. But, for all intents and purposes, we have a place to live!
So, here's the plan, as far as we've developed it. I pick Jason up from the airport in about an hour. Tomorrow we will pack up our minivan and Jason will drive it and the dog down to Phoenix on Wednesday. I have a surprising amount of crap here in Denver that has to be transported - I'm pretty sure it will more than fill the van! Cyrus and I will finish out the week here in Denver and fly down on Sunday. (Yes, I got the relatively cushy end of the deal. It is already a 14 hour drive, and we figured that with Cy, it would probably turn into two days, and Jason didn't want me driving alone, blah blah blah.)
We can start moving into our new place on Monday. Most of our stuff is in a storage unit in the Phoenix area, and some items are in my brother-in-law's garage. The problem is that Jason doesn't have a day off until Thanksgiving, so we are trying to figure out just how much we can move using our minivan in the evenings...we shall see.
NaBloPoMo caught me off guard today, hence the lame post. I will try to be slightly more prepared in the future, although, I've just realized that from now until the end of November, my life is going to be in chaos! But I refuse to give in! I will conquer NaBloPoMo! Wish us luck!
