It's back to Angleton, the county seat that's twenty years behind the rest of the county. I can't wait to leave this stagnant town. Just bidding my time til jobs come up in a few months in New Mexico and elsewhere. I'll get out and never come back. No more rotting conservative ideology. No more small town politicians getting elected with 10 percent of the population voting and collecting a paycheck with little to show for it. No more 90 + degrees in October, Hurricanes and dead culture. For once I would like to enjoy an evening sitting outside without being attacked by swarms of mosquitoes. For once I would like to walk more than 5 minutes in the summer and fall and not be drenched in sweat. No more smell of the landfill when the winds come out of the east. It won't be long and I'm preparing for it.
I didn't have much time to relax when I got home. To prepare for my departure I have to get the house sale-ready. Tile, paint, siding, landscaping, paneling are doable but eventually I'll have to fork out a lot of money to get the electricity up to code. I'm on a mission.
