On the Road. Again.

I love the quiet life of living on a farm way out in the middle of nowhere, and my roots are firmly (trans)planted here in Georgia. However, it seems that the other members of "Nash-ville" are not quite as content with cows and dandelions as I am. Our crew of adventurers is determined to go to as many different faraway places as they possibly can. And apparently they've decided to do it all at roughly the same time. (Translation: instant gray hair for me!) The revolving door of world travelers keeps swinging so frequently that I can barely keep up with it all. Yes, it's why I've been AWOL from blogging; and don't even ask me about my laundry room! Recently we welcomed home one beloved member of our family from Afghanistan for a couple weeks of R and R. Next week, another family member is leaving the nest for three weeks of work at an orphanage in Ecuador. Another kid returns to Georgia the following week, after an extended study abroad adventure in Turkey. And, a few days after that, yet another family member heads off to live in NY. Talk about frequent flyers! Holy moly, me, oh my! My head is spinning. Somebody pass the dramamine, the Miss Clairol, and help me remember my Skype password.

Here's to having family home, even for tiny bits and pieces of time.

you do have world travelers in your family. I am so glad you get to have them home on the farm for awhile.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, CATHY! Hope it's a day where you are pampered and can forget about the craziness for a few moments!

I love country living but luckily I don't have world travelers in my family :)

Ohmygosh - that's a lot of passports to keep track of. Speaking of which -- does a service member have to have a passport when the gov't sends him to another country? Inquiring minds want to know LOL. And did we by any chance have a birthday recently? A certain missing post may or may not have tipped me off. If so....Happy Belated Birthday!!!

Although it is an adjustment when the kids grow up and start leaving the nest... a positive note is.... You raised them well... to be independent and caring. How proud you must feel.
Blessings, L
