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!
