home away from home



Buddy started his new job last week, a 2-story bank that will be the biggest building in the small town of Rock Spring, Georgia. Let's see, there is the post office across the street, a couple of convenience stores, a small restaurant… that's about it. He has already met the policeman/building inspector, and says it is going to be good to be working with small town folks again.

Buddy takes his 'home away from home' with him on out-of-town jobs, a place to stay. This time I get to go too! Since I work at home, it really doesn't matter where I call home, as long as it has high-speed internet. So I too am on the road now. There are a lot of interesting sites to explore in this area, one of which is the Chickamauga National Military Park, 8000 acres of trails, monuments, Civil War history.

At first I had mixed feelings about this move (not very impulsive, don't like change). On the one hand it will be refreshing to get out of the house, to see and get to know a new place, explore the area, 'camping out'. Then I will miss the house, kids and grandkids. It is not so far away, though, so I can come back and forth if I need to. I think I have turned into a hermit, so this outing will probably be just what I need! Here is my new office, all set up and ready to go!

Hey, you're all set to go. You've got your coffee mug, your laptop, high-speed DSL, a comfy bed, a place to hang your hat, and an area to explore. Ooops, I forgot. You also have hubby. Hope you two vagabonds have fun while the bank is going up. You certainly lead a charmed life.

Hope you keep in touch with all us stay-at-homes and tell us all about your adventures. Above all, have fun.

Good on you for getting out of your comfort zone and going with Buddy. Your new 'office' looks perfect!

And this comes just after installing that new red roof!

Who's going to take care of the turkeys?

i think it's neat that you can travel with him. my younger sister and i used to travel with my parents b/c we homeschooled during our high school years. we had a lot of neat adventures that most students don't get to experience.

You sound a lot like me. I feel at home if I have a laptop. I miss home but know the change of scenery will do me good. And I love to get back home!

Have fun!
