Omaha after all
After two weeks of hopefulness, worry, excitement and too-much logic, we've made a really good decision.
We're going to stay here.
Our friends will still be in Colorado, and I will still miss them every single day. The two jobs we almost took will go to someone else. And I will still wonder, what if?
But Omaha with its commute and lack of scenery has slowly become home (as much as I try to fight it).
I got really mad last night at the Realtor who came in with all his reality and pointed out all the sore spots in our house. Maybe the basement isn't finished properly, but it's still our basement. Maybe the upstairs only has two bedrooms, but they're still two nice bedrooms. I disliked the salesman almost right away. The Hummer he parked in our driveway should have been my first clue. The stink of his breath was the second.
So we won't be inviting him back.
We don't need to anyway. We're staying here. For now? Forever? I don't know. (OK, please don't let it be forever).
But I hope we'll start to actually live here, for now, being OK with keeping only a distant, watchful eye on those mountains to the west.
