My Third Month Living in Austin

I do have a complaint from my 3rd month living in Austin.  No, it’s not the heat.  I’m a Kansas girl, so I’m used to the heat.

It’s the dang crickets!!!  No one forewarned me that crickets come out in vengeance in June!  It’s been ri-di-cu-lous!  Crickets everywhere!  Outside….INSIDE my apartment….INSIDE at work.  Supposedly, Austinites are just used to such grossness.  I, however, have spent the last few weeks being creeped out and peering around corners wondering if yet another cricket will be in my bathroom.  Eww!

Luckily (knock on wood), I’ve only seen about 2-3 crickets a day over the past few days.  So, fingers crossed that I won’t have to battle them again for another year!

Took my parents down to San Antonio.  It wasn’t new to me, but new to my Dad to check out the Alamo and the Riverwalk.
