An Easy Choice

Post-A-Day 2011:  If you could work from anywhere, where would you want to live?

What an easy question to answer.

If I could work from anywhere, I wouldn’t think twice – I would choose to work from wherever my family is.  If that meant here in Irrigon, then fine by me.  I love it here.  I love that I’m 25 minutes from Tri-Cities, and 2-1/2 hours from Portland.  Our house is literally less than 1/2 mile from the beach on the banks of the Columbia River!  We are only a 45-minute drive to the mountains.  We kind of have the best of everything here, and as long as I’m with my family, that is where I would choose to be.

It’s as simple as that.

However . . .

You had to know that big “however” was coming.

If I could MOVE my family to anywhere in the world, I would like to live in the mountains.  There would have to be a catch, though.  It would have to be close enough to a city or large town where I could also be around people.  Plus, I don’t know what kind of work I could do from the mountains.  Since we would have to win the lottery or come into some unknown inheritance to do this, I don’t see it happening any time soon.  Besides, Aaron says I could never live in the mountains because I’m too social. 

He’s right.

Who knows, maybe we will win the lottery and we can have a house in the mountains and somewhere warm, with white, sandy beaches, drinks with umbrellas, and Wi-Fi so I could work from home.  😉

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.
