Not to say I didn't make and keep great friends there, because I did. But they were few and far between. I didn't realize how starved I was for people interaction until we went on the road. I soak it up now that I have it so readily available to me everywhere we go. And I love it. I really miss it when I don't get it now.
Today we are sitting inside and I'm a bit pouty about that because we were invited to Happy Hour over at Ken and Faye's. All the pickle ball players will know who I am talking about because they are Pickle masters or ambassadors or something like that. And they are really great people to boot. (As a side note, I realized yesterday that Faye is one of the most regal women I've ever met. She has the kind of southern accent that makes me feel homesick. Someone once told me I was a southern Belle at heart and I think she meant that I want to be a southern Belle at heart, like Faye and my friend Marcia! Unfortunately, I'm more like Jenny from the block so I'll let them be the Belle's!) I'm really bummed that we are missing the Happy Hour due to rain. And I am just so grateful that I know we live a life that another and another and another will come our way. So it's not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of life.
I'm also pondering that the other day we went to Petsmart so we could waste more money on the pets who could care less about the gadgets and gizmos we buy them. While we were there though, I struck up a conversation with one of the managers and she was just the neatest lady. I'm thinking I'm going to have to drive back over just to talk to her again. She had lots of animals for pets, told us about some of them and told us why she moved to Florida, told us how she lost her mom and MIL both within six months and she is from my hometown. She is the first person I've met from Jackson. Well the first person that would admit it at least.
Living the life in rainy Florida!
