no previous part Part 1 of Moving the family series no next part

I have recently gotten a new job back in my home state of Florida. Same Company I currently work for just a transfer basically. All of my tools are packed with the exception of my hand saws and a couple hand planes. No shop time for me for a while. It is a good time because I am easily distracted and this is a time I need to be focused.

My wife, my oldest daughter (5 yrs) and I are going down in about 10 days to look for a new home or a temp place until we find a home. I am excited to see what we can find. My current shop has been the front of a one car garage. When I say front I mean the first 6-7 feet. It would be nice to have a 10×10. Wooo, I am dreaming now. as long as it has a place for my bench and my little girls bench I will be happy.

Exciting and scary too. I hope my family is happy.
