We JUST moved to Austin. Okay, we’re driving there right now! So, not exactly moved yet. I’m so glad I’ve had guest posters substituting in for me while we walked through the process of moving.
Here is our old house in AZ… that we are moving from.
I made a video with my phone to show the state of our house yesterday morning. I got two shots at filming it before the movers arrived, so bear with me!
I didn’t get to upload the upstairs video… Sorry!
So far, things have gone relatively well, but with a few minor hiccups. For instance, we changed our phone numbers to an Austin area code and gave them out to everyone. Friends, family, businesses, and so on. Then, the day they were scheduled to change, we found out that order had gotten cancelled by the Verizon store in the process of me buying a new phone. So, we had to get new new numbers. And, that meant calling and changing numbers with everyone AGAIN!
Another little mishap occurred with our Internet hookup. But, we got it all worked out and are on track.
Our stuff should arrive by van line sometime this week. The car we had shipped (we drove one, shipped one) will arrive within two weeks.
We will be in temporary housing until our stuff arrives, then we’ll move into a rental house where we will remain until we find that right house to buy. We are so picky – that could take a while!
Here is the floor plan of the home we are moving out of (the burnt orange areas were optional):

If you are like me, you may be wondering… with movers and packers how much could there be to do? And, what do we have to do once we get to Austin?
Well, I’m going to be sharing a checklist that I made for our move tomorrow so you can see! It’s fairly long. Plus, I’ve been sick for three weeks of the process! I finally got antibiotics and I’m doing quite a bit better now.
Though we didn’t pack ourselves, we went through every item in our house to sort it – to use in the rental, to store, to take in the car, for the garage sale, etc. Not only that, there was so much more to the process!
It’s quite a process to move from one state to another. Have you done an out of state move? We’ve done it four times now! Texas to Kansas to Utah to Arizona and back to Texas. I know some of you have even moved out of country!
We’ll miss you, Phoenix!
