5 days and counting!
To give you an idea of current life in Scottsdale, we run from the car to work or home so we don't get too dehydrated, sunburned or lethargic in 100+ weather. We hurry Tater when we give him potty breaks because we don't want him to burn his paws on the cement and sacrifice taking him on much needed walks because of the inevitable sweat bath.
I have never blogged before, but seeing as I have never lived in a city before, never not relied on my car for sole transportation and it has been YEARS since I lived in cold weather or any other state East of Arizona, I just might have some entertaining stories that develop as we make this trek to the midwest. What I should also warn you about it my ability to fall even when I am standing still. Infamous for being a klutz, I fall walking especially on ice, snow or in heels. My last visit to Chicago I managed to enter a revolving door going the wrong (counter-clock) direction! Anyone who knows me well, knows I am seriously directionally challenged. I couldn't find my way out of a paper bag if my life depended on it.
Stay tuned as we embark on Phx --> Chi.
