|In the night, I couldn’t sleep. I started reading a Jodi Piccoult book and about 30 pages into it, I realized that I had already read this one. A friend loaned me several and I have lost track of which ones I’ve read and which ones I haven’t. This is the second book I’ve started and realized I’ve read. I slept in and got up to a cold morning. It’s hard to crawl out of a warm bed when it’s cold. I got dressed and slowly started working towards getting the trailer readied to move to Talimena State Park. I studied the map to plot my route. Then, on the side of the state map, I noticed a chart that outlines all of the amenities located in each of Oklahoma’s State Parks. Talimena State Park has the least of any in the state. Clayton Lake SP didn’t serve me well and it offered so much more than where I was headed, it concerned me. I had asked a couple of people around here and they had all driven the Talimena Scenic Bypass, but none had been to the state park. I ate some potatoes soup for “brunch.” Then, I looked at the map again and decided I would just drive the Scenic Bypass from here (adding about 25 miles each way) instead of moving my campsite. That would leave my trailer in a great location – no possible harm. Relieved with my decision, I put together a grocery list, went by the camp office and paid for four more nights, and drove into town to visit Roy Cardinal Grocery Store. Since I don’t know my way around this grocery store, not like my Garland Walmart, it takes me a long time to find everything. I purchase a few store-brand items, but not like usual because I’m not sure of their quality/taste (another draw-back to not shopping in a familiar store). While I was checking out, Andrew called. It is so nice to be able to get a phone call. I feel very out of touch which makes me feel very alone. When I was planning my Fulltime RVer lifestyle, I always knew that I would be traveling by myself. But, one thing I didn’t bargain for was not being able to get in touch with people. No phone, no emails, no texts – I feel very isolated. While I had cell phone reception, I changed two doctor’s appointments, made a vet appointment for Luci, made a trailer repair appointment and talked to my insurance company. You take having a phone readily accessible so for granted. I decided to stop in the Pizza Hut for dinner; they have a special deal. I haven’t been to Pizza Hut much since Andrew was young and we would come when he earned a free “Personal Pizza” for doing his “Book It” reading each six weeks. Those were the most expensive “free” pizzas ever. After about 1st grade, they weren’t enough to fill him up and, of course, you couldn’t redeem the free coupon unless it was accompanied by a paying adult (and, at that time, their pizza wasn’t cheap). But, I was determined to reinforce his reading reward so to Pizza Hut we went! I got a Supreme Pizza for $10 and I took half home. While I was in the Pizza Hut, I was trying to play “Words with Friends.” One of the waitresses noticed I was playing and we struck up a conversation and before I knew it, three waitress and two other tables of people were all in our conversation. This is a very friendly town. I asked if they had “Red Box.” “Yes,” the waitress replied – “in McAlister.” “How far is that?” “Oh, about 30 minutes.” I drove back to Robbers Cave and began listening to The American Heiress, an audio book on my Kindle, and working on the hand-work stage of my apron project. It is really getting cold outside; it is predicted to freeze tonight. I left the sink in the bathroom dripping to prevent the hose outside from freezing (hopefully). I had planned on researching on the Internet what to do in freezing temps, but I haven’t had access.
