I Want Out

Today I was watching the news when the weather forecast came on.
I don’t remember the exact words the guy said but something along the lines of, “It’ll be 104 today. But 100 tomorrow. Nice fall weather.”
I wanted to punch my TV. (It was 107 yesterday!)

Sierra handed me a flyer for their school fall carnival and Halloween celebration. She asked if we could go which I said, “Of course!” to. “As long as we’re still here. If we move we’ll go to your new school’s fall celebration.”
“Oh man,” she says, “I hope dad doesn’t get that job! Plus, I don’t want to live in Colorado!” (They want to move to Spokane, which is what our hope has been the last 9 months)

Colorado isn’t my ideal for a few different reasons but right now I have to think about it as a way out of Arizona. Ideal or not, it is my most likely escape route this year. Allan should find out by next week if he gets an offer. His interview was this last Monday and I’m hoping he hears from them this week. Patience, after waiting more than two years to move, is not something I do well these days. But… patience I must have. As there is no other way. ha πŸ˜‰

  • We LOVE Colorado. There's so much to do and mostly really pretty weather! I'm glad you will finally have a way out of AZ πŸ™‚

  • Where in Colorado? We moved to Fort Collins 7 years ago and absolutely love it! The only thing I hate is that it gets up to 95 a lot in the summer;) I would DIE in AZ!

  • My husband is from Denver and it's really beautiful. They actually have cold winters! I live in Utah now and we have really hot summers, but I love the weather the rest of the year. And I've lived in AZ and HATED it!

  • We had above-average temperatures all last week and I wanted to punch things, too. And that was only for a week. I can not imagine your hatred for Arizona at this point…I really can't. Heat like that sucks the soul right out of your body. I know you aren't thrilled about Colorado, but maybe it'll grow on you. Its so pretty there πŸ™‚

  • I love Colorado as it doesn't have as much rain, and I love the snow and while you have actual winter it is never as bad as AZ. I feel like anywhere that has seasons, I mean all 4 distinct ones, would be an improvement at this point. Signed another hater of AZ. lol ^ katiej
