An Update On The Move

I vowed to myself to make a concerted effort to blog this experience as much as possible, because it's such a wild, exciting, crazy time of transition for us. I always thought in the back of my mind that we might be heading back 'home' to Arizona one day, but the concept always seemed so far out of reach for me. Now it's here, and coming at us a million miles a minute.

Leaving New York City. For good.

My head has been swimming- so much left for us to see and do and eat and photograph in this great city- I almost felt like if I don't blog every little thing, I'd somehow forget about it all. So I promised myself I'd try to capture every minute.

And then? We discovered all 6 seasons of Lost on Netflix. (Thanks, Erin! haha)

So here I am, 2 weeks later (?!?) sleep-deprived from multiple hours-long Lost marathons and trying to catch this little online journal of mine (as well as all of you readers!) up on the latest.

The most exciting (and freakishly stressful) part of this cross-country moving experience we're about to embark on? We've now decided to do it all ourselves. You heard me right, folks. We're preppin' for a cross-country road trip. Just the Mr. and me, barreling cross-country on the bench seat of a 14' U-Haul truck.

But- before that? We need to pack the *entire* house (which, um, basically hasn't even been started yet-Lost marathons, remember?), transition our jobs over to our coworkers, finish our last few days at work, have office going away parties, pack the U-Haul, and leave.

Oh, and did I mention that we're going to be OUT OF TOWN for 5 of those days? Which means I'll also have to go through the oh-so-stressful exercise of packing for a giant vacation WHILE packing up my entire life to move cross-country? And then somehow sandwich in the items left to do on our NYC Bucket List?

So all of the above (minus loading the U-Haul) needs to happen by the 14th. As in a week from yesterday. Thank the Lord that the cavalry (aka Mama Martini) will be heading to town for reinforcements. Otherwise, I don't think all the dirty martinis in Manhattan could calm the nerves I've got going on right now.

Keep Calm, and Carry On, indeed!

Girl... I am so tickled for you, but after moving across country 5 times, please consider using ABF. They drop the truck off, you load your stuff onto it, then they drive the truck to your new location. They are reliable, and trust worthy, they always get the truck their on time, they never hit you with any surprise charges, and you will be oh so happy that you chose to fly or drive in your own comfy car out to Arizona, as opposed to trying to drive a big ol box truck with no review mirror....

I am so glad you updated us, you have been on my mind!! I wish I could jet up to NY and help you pack! Glad Momma is coming into help you. I wish there was something I could do to help, if you think of anything, or just need someone to cheer you on, I'm here for you!! XOXO SO EXCITING!!

Wow! Best of luck to you! What an exciting time :)

So much going on at once - it must be a whirlwind in Lulu land! Somehow everything will all get done, and you will embark on many more adventures in your new home. Many exciting times ahead!! Best of luck with everything, and keep us posted (when you get a free second - hehe)! XO

You can do it!! It is sometimes better to work under pressure anyway!

PS-Your being out of town will be totally worth it I feel- if it is for the wedding I am thinking of!

You can do it! It's such an exciting time. And how much fun to drive cross-country with R? Wow!

You'll get it all done and then you'll be on the road and not even looking back. But make sure you make time for Lost! hee hee

It sounds like you will be quite busy this next week. I will keep my fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly for you with the packing and moving!

This post made me laugh and cry because we are doing the same thing- opposite direction! 2 days after my fiance graduates and the morning after I finish my current job, we are heading out on a road trip from California to DC. We too are doing all the moving ourselves because we want to take our car (and, oh yeah, do this as cheaply as possible)!

This all happens in less than a month. But what are we doing? Oh yeah marathoning through the complete Buffy the Vampire Slayer. COOL! It's not like he has to finish his thesis and we have to pack up our lives or anything...

Once we're there, we have 3 days to sign on an apartment, he starts his job, I go up to Boston to graduate, we have 2 days to move and then I start my job. But it will all be worth while when we are settled in and happy.

So hang in there! Somewhere, there's nirvana on the other end :-) Good luck and I look forward to hearing how it goes for you guys.

You will make it. Just don't come to D.C. or Mini K will NOT let you continue the road trip without her!!!!!
