   Have you  ever heard the saying "You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can't take Texas out of the girl."?  I know for a fact that it is true.  Because what I am getting ready to say is hard.  Really  hard!  As a matter of fact, looking back I could never have imagined these words coming out of my mouth.  OK here goes.... It looks like I am going to be an Okie.  There, I said it. Of course I won't be saying it much but just for the record books I did say it once.  Some of you won't understand but Texans and Okie's are kind of like the big game of football... Army vs Navy sort of thing.
  I haven't talked much about what has been going on as far as looking for land lately. Maybe because I didn't want to "jinx" it by talking about it. Mostly because I just wasn't sure it was actually going to happen. I'm happy to say that now it is now just a matter of scheduling a meeting to sign the paperwork, hand over a check and have the contract notarized. It looks like the dream I have been dreaming for so many years is coming true.  I can't even begin to to express the excitement I feel. I am sooo excited!!  I never thought I would begin this new phase of my life in Oklahoma though...
    I wrote about the property we were looking at a few posts ago.  Just under an acre (0.917) with a well, electricity septic system already in place. Of course there is work that needs to be done with it all but the "big stuff" is in place!   It's out in the country but still pretty close to a "Little Big Town".  And just about 40 miles from "The Big City".  I wish it were a bit more remote but hey it is going to be just fine!!  We have one neighbor. The way the land is situated we should never have anymore than that.  We are bordered on three sides by hundreds of acres of public land, except for the little bit the neighbor has right behind us.  There are deer and wild hogs in them there woods!  I just may finally get my first deer. Now I know some folks have an aversion to shooting "Bambi" but I'm definitely not one of them. I'll be first in line for a nice piece of venison.
    It is going to take a little while to be able to move out there full time but we should be able to get everything together by the end of May. As usual it's all about the money. Thanks to Mrs. M (Mushroom) I have finally accepted the idea that things will work out the way they are intended to work out. Once we get the utilities working we can move the RV out there and....
    Have I mentioned how EXCITED I am yet??  So another chapter of life begins. Hang on to your hats folks.... this should be quite a ride!

  1. I am so excited for you I could burst! THIS IS AWESOME! YAY!

    I wish we could move out - it is possible with my husband's job, but not with the schools and the location [up on a mountain] where we could afford.

    I can't wait to see and read all about it.

    Heartfelt congratulations! Wish I was there to do the happy dance and toast you! YAY!

  2. OMG! Sci!! I am so beyond happy for you!! I am crying happy tears, I knew you would realize your dream. I had a dream about it, I never told you, because I thought you'd think I was nuts. The dream was awhile ago, I think it was way before you even left TX. :D

    Doing the Happy Dance in my chair!! Congratulations, my dear friend, you definitely deserve this.

    Love and Hugs
