We all know that I've been talking about moving to Austin forever now, but hey look! I'm moving to Austin. Like soon. Holy shit!
Jparks and I had discussed moving and we decided not to leave the Bay Area until at least the fall, but knowing we would price our house at a high rent, we figured we should list it now just to see what the interest would be. So last Monday the house went on Craigslist and by that afternoon the emails were rolling in, we had interest! I took that as a good sign and should have deleted the ad but I'm lazy and left it up. By midweek an agent was emailing me saying he had someone that really wanted our house and because I'm an ass I ignored his emails. Turns out this guy really wanted our house, and his agent would not relent, so Saturday morning we were had them over to look around and by Saturday evening the agent was calling us with the details of the lease. Meanwhile I was standing in the living room scratching my head and asking twitter how fast I could pack a house because the guy wanted to move in as soon as possible.
Sunday we discussed all of our moving options, including staying in the Bay Area for a little while longer and I realized this was a bad idea. As ML said "Just rip the band aid off." Why move an extra time? Do I really want to pack, unpack, and then pack again? Well, the band aid is off and I'm about to sign a lease in Austin.
Am I upset about this? Yes. Am I excited? Yes. Am I wondering how we're going to pull off a move in less than a week? Fuck yes.
Austin brace yourself, the Parkses arrive mid June.
