Default Update on mah move..

Thanks for the advise and discussion in earlier threads folks
I'll be living in the Stone Oak area (specifically, The Retreat and Canyon Springs) for the next year, got a -steal- of a deal on an apartment/townhouse lol

Moving van shows up Tuesday, I start the drive out on Wednesday, should be in the Apartment on Saturday, and I start the new job on the 12th. Gotta get the child creatures in school and day care, after all

OK. Don't bring any of that crappy NorthEast weather with you please.

Leave the fast pace behind as well. We take it easy here. You will get very frustrated if you try to do things quickly ...patience is key. I did 30+ years in NY/NJ and 5 years in SoCal. This place is by far....the most laid back.
It annoyed me at first, because I wasn't used to it..even coming from SoCal. Took a while to adjust.

Congrats and I hope it all works out well for you! That seems like a good place to be with your current and future commute. (You were working at Rackspace, right?)

Good luck!

Turtle_Mom - Yep, that's where I'll be at, and I agree that it seems like it'll be a reasonable commute (depending on one's definition of reasonable, of course ). Time will certainly tell the tale.

I drove over by the new location while I was in the area looking at apartments the week before last. It'll definitely be a good thing for that area when things open up.

Thank-you all for the welcome, and I swear I'll try to leave the weather here. lol

Jerry,

Just a "heads up"....not sure where you will be settling but there is a school district boundary line in the Canyon Springs area. It is split between Comal ISD and NEISD. Some of the schools have been capped in both districts. Not sure of the age of your children but it would make sense to take a look at both websites, especially before you buy. I know you said that you will be renting for a bit and that will give you a chance to check out the schools and get familiar with the boundaries. We are in Comal and they are currently building new elementary schools to be open next fall, 2008, that will effect the school boundaries in part of Canyon Springs.

If you have any questions feel free to PM/DM me:-)

Yes, and not too far east on 1604 is Judson ISD, too. Also, some of the schools in the Stone Oak and Encino area are capped (not at all grade levels, though). Once you have a contract on a home, you can enroll them in the school for that property. Until then, you are (probably) at Canyon Springs ES.

You will miss the LOOK of snow, but not the shoveling. I'm originally from Boston, and my other half grew up in Maryland.
