my traveling office

Our car.

We have been on the road a lot this year.  (I wrote this post on Friday, the 15th of February.)

Every other weekend in 2013 we have have been somewhere other than Clarksville, TN.

Most travel has been to the exotic locales afforded us by our daughter’s gymnastics competition schedule . . .

like Bloomington, IL

bars

 

and Memphis, TN

but we have also interspersed a few pleasure trips in, as well.

Ft Walton Beach to visit our friends . . .

Manassas, VA to visit my sister and brother-in-law for their Mardi Gras celebration . . .

One thing I’ve discovered is how much I enjoy working on my blog posts while my husband confidently navigates our way to and from our destinations.

This laptop has a great battery and on my way to Ft. Walton beach, I was able to formulate the better part of three blogs!  I was on fire.

Today, as we travel to St. Charles, MO, I have worked on two.

Needless to say, travel time has been a huge factor in my ability to return to blog land in such a fierce manner.  

I normally don’t get away from the shop this much, but my husband’s new job has him traveling quite a bit, so I’ve made the commitment to spend time with him while he is home. 

Then there is the fact that I have off loaded a few  things that have been weighing me down at the shop; at the same time, recommitting myself to spending more time being creative.  Being creative just makes me happier and more chatty—I have more to share.

I hope you’re enjoying/relating to them as much as I am enjoying writing them!

Thanks for your indulgence,

Hahahahah yes I blog as we caravan and my husband is driving. However we have been known to miss important turns because I have not been watching his driving route :)

I can relate, Michelle, we have had a few of those moments as well, but the way I look at it is this: the roads that travel East will 99.9% of the time have a West bound lane as well--you just need to turn around.
(I make this sound so calm and cook, but I assure you, there are usually explatives involved--from both of us.
Thanks for reading!
