MicroVacay 2014

July 3rd, 2014 · 3 Comments · Austin, Lori, travel

We needed a little getaway, but the calendar gods were not smiling upon us. So, instead of a mini vacation for a night or two, we took a micro vacay just for the day. I picked Colorado Bend State park. It wasn’t too far out for us to miss our obligations, like visiting Mom. I […]

Austin Women Are Complex

April 9th, 2013 · 2 Comments · Austin, Lori

I’m downtown this afternoon. I am going to work a college fair this evening to help represent the University of Miami. I came down early to have a snack before the 3-hour shift. While on the train ride down, Emil texted how I was doing. This was my response: Productive/happy, the complimented, then yelled at, […]

Miami in Austin

March 18th, 2013 · 1 Comment · Austin, Lori

I’ve been quite proud of my Canes during this basketball season. Our only complaint is that people rank Duke highly in a year they don’t deserve it. And now, my team is coming to Austin! I’m very excited!!! It all happened on St. Patrick’s day. And, BTW, Ireland’s colors are green, orange, and white…just like […]

SXSW 2013

March 14th, 2013 · No Comments · Austin, Lori, technology

We didn’t do much with/at #SXSW this year. We did make plans to and attended #gdgt. That was the same day as Circle Brewing’s birthday party. So we had beer (well, our friends and I had beer) and then took the train from there to downtown. On the way there, we stopped at Manuel’s Cuban […]

Whew!

February 7th, 2013 · 3 Comments · Austin, Lori, projects

Whew….an understatement. The “leak”? The dishwasher. yay! The dishwasher had a big pool of water sitting in the bottom of it. We don’t know how or why it got there, but the warranty guy turned it to a cycle to make it drain. …and all the water drained. It was like magic! To test it, […]

Weep for Seeps

February 6th, 2013 · No Comments · Austin, Lori, projects

It rained last night. Today, when I got to the town house, I found small puddles of water in the middle of the kitchen floor. Worrying that we had a leak, I checked the ceiling, the windows, the doors, and both the dishwasher and refrigerator. All were bone dry (even upstairs). In fact, the biggest […]

Small Projects

February 5th, 2013 · No Comments · Austin, Lori, projects

Today was quite busy, but noting much that’s photo worthy. I met the painters this morning so they could cut the hole for the cat door. I also finished cleaning the kitchen cabinets, the floor under the range, and the outside of the range, itself. (Next task here is to clean the burner grates, the […]

Painting

February 4th, 2013 · No Comments · Austin, Lori, projects

Today was day 1 of our painting contract. Our guy, Ray, had to be in San Antonio today, so Saturday, he introduced us to his right-hand guy, Saul. Saul said he could do it all in two days. But then, in between, one of Saul’s trucks died alongside a highway. So, Saul called in Joaquin […]

#ANewHome

February 3rd, 2013 · No Comments · Austin, Lori, projects

We have so many stories and plans to tell about our townhouse. While we wait for our new home to earn a name, I’m calling it #ANewHome so my Tweets make sense. We closed on the 28th. We took possession on 31st. We’ve spent the last few days deep cleaning (vacuuming air returns, cleaning grills, […]

We’re moving, again.

January 13th, 2013 · No Comments · Austin, Lori, projects, y. whitelist

Renting is a Luxury We moved into this “luxury” apartment with the idea we’d be here for 2+ years. We liked renting. When a bulb burned out, we filled out an online report and they came to change it. It was a far cry different than owning (the maintenance burden of) a home. …but then […]
