About a month ago, my husband, Steve, and I decided that we would move to Austin, TX. Odd, yes, for a PA girl. However, it was time for a change and we did a lot of research before deciding on Austin. Steve spent 4 days just after the 4th of July to find an apartment. On July 11, 2011 we were approved to move into our current complex. It's a beautiful, modern, and spacious 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and a study. Unfortunately for Steve, I was already scheduled to attend LeakyCon 2011 in Orlando, FL July 12-18, 2011. That left Steve to finish the packing (most of it we had already done knowing that we planned to move, even if we didn't know where we were going) and make all plans for the actual move.
CRAP! Another set-back: we had to drive a moving truck the 1,200 miles from Pittsburgh to Austin. Maybe you are saying to yourself, "Richelle! Come ON! That doesn't sound so bad." Well, add on the fact that we also had to tow our car behind the truck. Oh, and add two cats that HATE to travel and respond to being in a moving vehicle by vomiting, defecating, and meowing incessantly. Trust me when I tell you that we were... apprehensive.
