My bags are packed, the kitties are fed, the housekeeper/cat feeder is arranged. R&R time.

Yay for the moving truck finally arriving. I went by Eve and Mark's after work last night (it's so nice to be less than two miles away) and helped move boxes from the giant pile in the living room into wherever they needed to go. Tonight, I veg out on the couch.

Two more days of work and then three days to relax up north.

My boss is in off-site meetings this week, so I'm doing some extra days. In exchange, I have a three-day weekend next week, and I'll be spending it up in Oak Creek, relaxing in the forest and watching the All Star Game.

I worked an incredibly long day today (capped off by getting a speeding ticket on the way home - grr), and tomorrow I'm just working til 3pm, then taking William and Christopher out for the evening so Mark and Eve can have some grownup time together.

I know renting a UHaul and driving it cross-country wasn't an option for them, but man, with all of the drama surrounding their moving company (the truck left NJ *MONDAY*), I wouldn't do it any other way. I know I said I would hire movers if I ever move again, but no no no. Hire people to load and unload? Absolutely. Let someone else drive the truck? No way. So now the truck is expected to arrive by Friday. It was supposed be here by July 1. It's OK, it'll be more like Christmas, opening all of the boxes when they finally get here. I lent them my pots and pans (since the amount of cooking I do is negligible, plus I get to eat Chez Eve whenever I want). And thanks to the awesome Verrado Garage Sale Facebook page, we've actually found some good deals on a pullout guest couch and some end tables. But it'll be a relief once their truck and furniture etc actually arrives!

Down the British! Up the rebels!

We had our first thunderstorm of the season last night - welcome to monsoon season. It had been 120 days without rain before yesterday - the fifth longest streak in AZ history (so they say). I hate to admit it, but it felt great (the rain).

Time to curl up on the couch for the annual viewing of 1776. I actually got home at a decent hour tonight, and thought about going up to the Verrado fireworks, but I am so freaking tired. Eve and the boys and I did dinner last night, and then went to the pool (before the rains came), and then work was just crazy busy, so I'm feeling rather antisocial tonight.
