Done and Over With!

Iâ€™m so glad thatâ€™s over. Iâ€™m officially leaving Springfield today. I couldnâ€™t be happier!
To say thank you to my friends and family for helping me move, I went and got the Springfield original, Mel-O-Cream donuts, which I had managed to avoid. But, I thought moving day called for a celebration, so I got the donuts, and even got a special one, a honeymooner, for myself. The honeymooner is a cream-filled donut with chocolate glaze and more whipped icing. But, the better donut turned out to be the chocolate old-fashioned (donâ€™t ask me how I know that).
The moving out process went fairly easily, despite the rain. Luckily, there were no downpours, but we did have to dry off a few items. We were packed up within a couple hours.
On our way out, we stopped at the Hen House to eat lunch. This restaurant was right next to my apartment complex, but had never eaten at. As a kid, we used to eat breakfast every Sunday morning at the hen House, but ours closed years ago. This was a flashback to my childhood, and the food was oh, so good. I got a western omelet with hashbrowns and biscuits and it was incredibly good. And, hearty. I was miserable on my way back home. And the highlight was getting a Hen House t-shirt; my sister and I both got one.
Coming home, I passed the Vernon tank farm for the last time for a long time, I hope. In fact, if I never see it again, itâ€™ll be too soon. Will I miss Springfield? Absolutely not. Iâ€™ll miss some of the friends Iâ€™ve made, but in this age of technology, I can keep in touch.
