Starting this week, our new Capitol office will be in Room E1.606 in the underground extension just north of the Capitol dome. We’ll move in tomorrow and Thursday.
Liz and I also moved from our old, longtime Central Austin house into our new, soon-to-be (hopefully) longtime Central Austin house this year, which Cooper will move out of when he heads off to college next year. And our older son, Preston, moved campuses, graduating from UT in the spring and starting an MBA program at St. Edward’s in the fall.
My law firm, Brown McCarroll, remodeled this year, too, which meant packing up the office, moving to a different office, waiting for the paint to dry, and then moving back.
Heck, if you count redistricting, even my Senate district has been moved in the last 18 months (thanks for the kindness and hospitality, Bastrop County).
At some point, you start to worry that folks really wish you were somewhere else.
Anyway, suffice it to say that I’ve learned a lot about moving in the last couple of years. Which leads me to two announcements:
1. Moving is hard work and takes a lot of time.
2. I have no time to make any other announcements.
But I do hope you’ll swing by the new office sometime soon to check out our digs. Again, we’ll be in room E1.606, near the northeast corner of the underground Capitol Extension.
Be warned, though: if you come by this week, we’ll ask you to unpack a couple of boxes.
