A Little Homesick

As I sit here in yet another hotel room, in another city not my home, I am really getting homesick.  This time of year is when my contracted work comes.  So I have to take it now while opportunity knocks.  Every year about this time, I start questioning why I do this.  So far, I have come to the conclusion that the good outweighs the bad........................

When I'm not on the road, which is most of the year, I am free to enjoy my family to the fullest.

Before the grandchildren

I can have my grandchildren over anytime.



I can take off for a weekend with my hubby.

I can have lunch with one of my daughters-in-law..........

Or my friends.

I love these women!

I can work on my furniture makeovers and projects. 

So for me it's always seemed like a good trade off.  I can earn a part-time income by working full-time for a few months and then be footloose and fancy free the rest of the year.    

This summer I ventured into my furniture makeovers as a business.  I really didn't have enough time to get it really going before I started my traveling.  So, now I'm really itching to get home and paint something too!  As I look through all the wonderful blogs out there, I can't wait to get back to it and post my projects!

Thanks for the visit.  Please be sure to check back!

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog! You have beautiful grandchildren! I'm sorry you are away from home, I know that can be rough as I travel for my job sometimes as well. It's great that you have some flexibility for the rest of the year, I'm jealous! Take care, hope you are back to your loved ones soon and back to furniture refinishing!
