Well I was definitely wrong about reforming to the east! The center was stationary, and it appears to be starting to move to the NW a tad, in the past couple hours, as that high in the NW GOM moves west and the trough lifts north. Readings from 42056 the past hour (winds had been coming from the east):
TIME (GMT) WDIR WSPD 1850 ESE ( 120 deg ) 9.7 kts 1850 ESE ( 114 deg ) 9.3 kts 1840 ESE ( 117 deg ) 9.3 kts 1830 ESE ( 115 deg ) 10.5 kts 1820 E ( 100 deg ) 11.8 kts 1810 E ( 100 deg ) 12.0 kts 1800 ESE ( 102 deg ) 14.6 kts

Ok, this is kind of interesting. I go back and check 90 min later, to see the wind has shifted completely around. Wouldn't this mean the center has gone right over the buoy and moved NE, not NW? I should have realized earlier that since the direction was changing so quickly (every ten minutes) that the buoy was close to the center.
