We're Going to Arizona!

My family moved to Arizona three or so years ago. Since then, I've been able to go see them once in July 2019 when I drove out there. We were supposed to go visit them last November, but my broken leg changed our plans. Well, we've finally gotten around to remaking them, so we're going to see my family and this time, we're flying. I'm terrified to fly, but Matt hates road trips. Needless to say, I'm crazy excited to see my family. Just a little while now and we'll take off from mid-30s Northern Utah and fly into mid-70s Phoenix, and while I don't love warm weather, I'm looking forward to being warm for a few days and so is the hubs! 

While we're there, we're going to see the Biosphere2 and I cannot wait. I am dying to see this place! We already got our tickets and everything. Let's just hope the bad luck from our Valentine's day plans don't jinx us. It's a bit of walking and the most walking I'll have done since breaking my leg last year, so I'm nervous but cautiously optimistic. I'll wear my ankle brace and it'll be fine. I'll also have to do a little work while I'm there, but I'm completely okay with that. It won't take me long and it's worth it to be able to see my family. Thank goodness for a flexible, mobile job!

Best of all, my family will get to see Matt, who they haven't seen much in years. He usually doesn't go visit with me due to his work schedule and caring for our animals (we got a pet sitter to drop in on them a couple of times a day this time). So, other than a day-trip a few years ago, he hasn't really seen my family since 2015. They're happy he's going to make it this time, and so is he. We're really looking forward to it.

I have so much to do to prepare, which is actually more than I thought thanks to Matt giving me a list of things we need to look into/do before we go. But, he's working a lot this week, so I'll have time to get all that done and clean up my house a bit so the pet sitter doesn't think we're a total mess... even though we are most of the time. Fingers crossed I can get it all done so that I can enjoy or little vacay without worry or anxiety.
