Who Moves in Late July in Arizona?

Hey everyone!  The answer to my post header question is ......... The Man and I!  We were so anxious to see our new home again, and it just made sense to rent a u-haul to take a lot of items the professional won't move -- paints, gardening chemicals, plus an odd assortment of things that are too difficult to pack.  It also seemed logical to rent the size truck that could pull an auto-transport, which turned out to be a 14'er.

We picked it up late last Thursday and started loading after the sun was down a bit.  Still, it was 109* or so and quite humid for here.

I had been staging things all day and putting pink stickies on everything that we could
 possibly load ourselves.

The Man was drenched in perspiration - he was working so hard.  So was I, but no way will you see a pic of that!  My car got loaded with all my houseplants, bedding, & suitcases.  We got most of the loading finished that night, finished up early Friday morn, & left for our new home. 

 This is how we made our "grand entrance" into our new neighborhood!

What was really awesome was that we had only been there for 5 minutes, when the neighbor next door came over and welcomed us to the neighborhood.   Talk about a "warm fuzzie!"

Okay, tomorrow is the big "tour" of our new home that I've been anxiously waiting to share with ya'll.  You had best rest up because we are talking "photo overload!"  Just so you  know!  Thank you so much for sharing this journey with me.  I hope to see ya' tomorrow.
