I have approximately five minutes before leaving this lovely land of onlineness¹ and heading back to box-land. Poor blog, though—you guys probably thought I forgot to bring it to Austin with me.
(FYI, those of you who don’t know me well—yet—this is my second full day in a new city. Things have been crazy lately, hence the unintentional lack of blogging.)
Here’s a quick-hits list of all things moving-week-related!
Packing Day—Sunday, the day we loaded all of our junk into not one, but two U-hauls—was one of the most taxing days I’ve ever experienced. However, if you follow me on Twitter (@olsonkayla), you already know this because I flooded you with #ihatepacking tweets. Sorry about that.
Austin? Is totally worth the taxing packing day. It’s fresh and fun and completely awesome. (PS: Melissa, you can absolutely consider this yet another subtle hint that screams MOVE HERE! in your direction!)
The only downside, so far, is the lack of internet access at our apartment. We’ll be hooked up soon, but for now I feel totally out of the loop. I miss you guys. *waves at sweet friends*
Our new apartment comes complete with a zillion awesome places to work on my novels. Bay window here, fireplace there, two patios, trees, peace and quiet…I’m so excited to get a little more settled in so I can get back to work!
People in Austin are FRIENDLY. I’m serious. We’ve already met some of our adorable neighbors—two young, married couples—because they came down and introduced themselves while we unloaded the U-Haul. (Ahem, I mean while we stood around and watched the paid movers unload the U-Haul.)(Best. Decision. Ever.) Everyone we’ve met has been kind and welcoming.
Okay, that’s it for quick hits. We’ve got some unpacking to do…whee! I’ll be back soon(ish).
In the meantime—since I’m sort of out of the loop for a little while—please fill me in on your own quick hits! I’m doing my best to keep up with all of your blogs, but it’s harder than usual given my less-connectedness.
Wishing you all a special and lovely Thanksgiving!
¹Funny how my made-up word looks sort of like loneliness. (Not that I’m lonely. Just that it’s funny.)
