Any Day Now

For some crazy reason, I had myself all convinced that when Russell finally earned his MBA, there would be new jobs lined up for him.  I suppose I really knew that wouldn't be the case, but I was hoping.  Now that it's here, I'm trying to be patient.  I'm SOO thankful for the job he HAS, and I don't want to come across like I'm not, but I want, so badly, to be settled before the new school year, because it's hard to move during the year.  I always said that I wanted to be moved, if we were moving, and settled before my oldest child turned 12.  Well, Chandler will be 12 in about two weeks, so I guess that's that. 

I am really hoping something comes up for us in Arizona.  As I've been thinking about what I want, and where I want to raise my family, I just lean more and more toward Arizona.  There were so many things I loved about living there.  Sure, it's hot, but seriously.  Ok, let me talk about that for a second... 
Let's take today:
Dallas, TX: High-98; current humidity-59%
Phoenix, AZ: High-105; current humidity-20%
Now, I ask you, is that really any worse?  I don't think so.  Now, it will get hotter in the next few months, but still, DRY.  I'm here to tell you, there IS a difference.
So, the heat really isn't an issue to me.  There are many wonderful things about that area, and I just feel like my family would do well there.

Now we just need a job...

I'm praying for Arizona too! Keeping my fingers crossed, I would love to have you back!

I love dry heat! We lived in Richmond, VA for 5 years and EVERYONE asked what's better...Arizona's dry heat or the humidity. In Richmond it would get to 98 or 99 degrees with 100% humidity. We moved there at the end of May and I seriously felt like I couldn't breathe. And my husband hated golfing because he was always soaking wet. Dry heat all the way. Of course I miss the cooler nights and fireflies.

I hope you get to come here too! Hang in there, even if you had to move the first month of the school year, that wouldn't be too bad. Keeping my finger's crossed too. :) Good luck!

There is a HUGE difference. I honestly can't handle the heat in Missouri. Here, I see little old ladies sitting at outdoor cafes under our brilliant misters. Now. In the dog days of summer! There's no talk of old people dying in heat waves here!

And people stay indoors back in MO for how many months of the year? You could say summer is our off-season, but really, we're outside all year round here; we love our pool!

Incidently, 20% humidity is quite high for here. That's monsoon humidity.
