Leaving Houston is always bittersweet.

I wasn’t supposed to be here this long but last week I decided to extend my stay. It seems like the last few times I’ve been to Houston, I had to make hard choices about what to finish and what to leave behind.

Each visit I’ve made in the past years has been both of pleasure and business. I work and I play, but I never seem to have enough time to do all that I want. This time was different.

I had an abundance of time to accomplish what I needed to accomplish at work. I had plenty of time to not only see most of my Houston area friends but to see several out of town friends as well as a couple I haven’t seen in a few years.

But my stay has been bittersweet as I’ve previously explained. However, it’s good for me to get back out there and on with my life.

I will come home to over a month’s worth of mail, at least five packages, a few bank statements, some medical bills and most of all my own room. It shall be nice.

Several people have mentioned how difficult it is to be away from home; how wonderful it is to get back to their stuff. I, however, feel like I could roam the world for months on end and be just fine. I’ll make the best of my circumstances.

See you later, Texas. You will be missed.
