Tonight is my last night here. When I got here three weeks ago, it seemed like such a long visit but it has flown by.
Chad had made the best gumbo last week and then froze the leftovers so I defrosted two containers of gumbo and fixed that for dinner tonight. Chad and Nicole got home about the same time, we ate, and then headed out to deer hunt. I filled a quart jar with leftover gumbo and I’m bringing it home for us to have for dinner when I get home Sunday.
I’m not dreading leaving tomorrow as much as I usually do. Yes, there will probably be a few tears but I’m so looking forward to spending an evening with my friend, knitting probably til late into the night. Also, I kinda feel like I closed a door that should never have been opened with deciding not to buy a house here. It’s funny how things work out. The realtor I started out using just kinda dropped the ball. Even though there were no houses really to see, I asked questions about a couple and she never got answers for me. There’s a house for sale by owner that I wanted to see and several times they said they’d call me “in a few days” and didn’t Just wasn’t meant to me and it’s a good feeling to have had so many confirmations.
I’ll feel a whole lot better once I’m through Tulsa and OKC but right now . . I’m ready to sleep in my own bed. Dang, I’m going to miss this little girl though!
