I've got an Austin address

I've spent the last four days looking for a place to live in Austin. I've driven up and down Mopac and 290 and Congress Avenue and Barton Springs.

Finally, Wednesday, I found a place. I have an official address in Austin. Weird to say. This is a view from the clubhouse, though my apartment faces the other way _ toward the Barton Creek Mall.

Anyway, I'm pooped. I'm tired of giving the same speech about why I moved, about the size apartment I need, and how much I wanna pay a month.

But I do have a story to tell. At one apartment, the lady showing me around shows me a vacant apartment on the first floor. She opens the door and immediately, I see rat poop on the ground. Uh, oh, I think, this place has rats. And just as I say that, a big ass squirrel or rat or something runs across the room. Needless to say, that scared the living S-H-I-T out of me.

Crazy, crazy. But Austin, here I come.

Well, you'll have to come cheer me on during my triathlon in Austin in June. Its an all women's tri... so, lots to see and enjoy!


So, if we can't have that margarita before you leave Dallas, then maybe then???

Happy you found a nice place... without unwanted pets. Yikes.

My cousin moved to Austin and loves it! I hear it's nice, but wayyyyy too hot for my liking. I hope you do find the right spot/apartment and hopefully, one that's not infested!

Good luck!

I REALLY enjoyed living by Barton Springs in Austin. No better location. I actually think I know the apartments you are talking about. I lived across Mopac, and my apartment faced the Greenbelt. It was GREAT.

There is a Veloway not too far away from where you live. Lookd it up!

Nothing like a rat scurrying on cue just as a potential tenant is shown a property! Holy rodents!
