Well it's been a while since I have posted anything on here.

Anyway, one evening while siting on the front porch and watching it rain, my wife and I started discussing the sale of this house and grand kids...imagine that. Heck, we've been singing that tune for some time now...about 6 months now, but who's counting? RIGHT?...Back to the front porch...I looked at Mary(that's my wife) and said, you know, if we travel all these states and go home every once and a while, our grand kids will not know us and we won't know them. It's bad enough already being separated from them by 7 hours and not seeing them often enough. If we travel then it's the Maw Maw and Paw Paw that comes through sometimes and never get to share experiences with them....SO...Long story short, we have decided to move back to Tennessee (with our 5th wheel) find a job and start over there....because Family Matters....


  1. So do you need to sell the house to move back to TN? Will you keep up your blog?

    We are thinking of moving to TX for a year (for a job) and know we will miss the little ones. We figure after one year we will know if we can handle being gone from nearby.

  2. Hey, it's good to hear from you. I'm glad that you and your family have come to a comforting decision. Tennessee is beautiful. We have visited several times and even considered moving there. I wish you all the best of luck and it sounds like a fabulous plan!

  3. We have lived here (TX) for 10 years. Two of our 3 kids live in TN and one still lives here. We have so missed out on a lot by being away. We have enjoyed it here, but just want to be around the grands more. Our grand son who lives here will be missed....but we have got to be around him a lot more at this point....So we have to sell our house even if we travel or move. Yes, we will keep this much going on to miss out on...gotta keep track of all you guys!!

  4. It is nice to make a decision and have peace about it, isn't it? I'm sure your children in TN are very excited at the prospect of having you around.

    It's funny but before we began traveling, we lived 20 minutes away from most of our family and yet didn't really see anyone. It took us being gone for everyone to realize that maybe they wanted to see us. A closer relationship with family- even though we don't live near them (we see them more) has resulted from us being on the road and I love it.

    Blessings as you begin another new adventure! :)

  5. At least you are keeping your 5th wheel. Hopefully as the grand kids grow you can be close and take them on fun trips every summer in the 5th wheel. Congrats on reaching a decision. Hope it doesn't mean no more blog posts!

  6. Sounds wonderful. People are the most important part. I'm sure you will love it being near your family more. On the the next adventure for you....
