The last several days were quite busy. After a 14 hour drive we arrived safely . Since we traveled at night the traffic was better. My Mom and Dad brought me to my new home in a van so I could bring our things with us. The cats did very well on the trip thanks to the medicine I got from the Vetrinarian. They seem to be accepting our new home well. They have claimed our walk-in closet as their sleeping place.
My parents stayed a few days and helped us get settled. Armando took us to the Alamo Drafthouse Theater which was a lot of fun. We went to see Avatar in 3D. Avatar was a great movie. If you have not seen it, you should go and treat yourself to it. My Mom had never seen a 3D movie. Mom, Dad, and I had never been in a theater which serves food as you watch the movie. I had a BBQ brisket sandwich and potato wedges. It was delicious. I like that theater.
One day we also went to the Half-Price Bookstore and I bought a kitchen herb book so hopefully later I can make a little herb garden on our patio. I also got a Nicholas Gunn CD. They have really good prices there and a big selection. I got the herb book for $2.00 and the CD for $5.98.
We have things in boxes still to unpack but I am sure we will work our way through things with time.
I need to start studying the roads of this city on a map to familiarize myself. Austin is quite big. I am pretty confused right now when we go places. All I know for sure is that we live by IBM. LOL
This is a very nice city with a lot of fun places to explore. I have seen by the river and it is beautiful and there are also some very nice walking areas.
Many people jog here all over the city. (I think I need to get more in shape.) Our apartment offers us a free gym so I think I will check it out one day and see if they have some weights or something for upper body exercises. I have high hopes that this year Armando and I can get involved and exercise more .
I am trying to keep the same schedule as Armando keeps so we do not conflict with each other. He sleeps 8 hours in the day so that he can work the night shift. So, I sleep when he does and wake up and study while he is at work. I tried to stay up all night the night before last but I just could not do it. I was still tired from the move and everything I have been doing lately. But I am staying awake tonight so hopefully with time I will adjust.
I will share pictures with you when I explore the city more.
