Working abroad has been the best experience of my entire life. I’m so glad I took a leap of faith & went to work abroad when the opportunity presented itself. I unquestionably missed my parents the entire time I was away, although I also got to meet amazing people. The experiences also with my new friends is something I can’t quite put to words. That was about nine years ago when I arrived home with the news that I got a job abroad. I’d not tell mom & dad I applied for the position because I doubted I’d get it. They needed someone with much more experience, although I went for it anyway & got the job offer. Now, I’ll be moving back to the apartment to begin a new position at an odd supplier & I love the experience. My first thought when I opted to transfer back home was to buy a house. Dad has experience with this, so I entrusted him with the job. Since it would be a year before I got back, we chose a cheaper household that needed a roof replacement. The household had superb bones, was in a wonderful location, but it had stood neglected for some time. This is why we opted for roof replacement instead of roofing repair to make it livable. Dad jumped into action to hire a roofing supplier to come & tackle the roof replacement. He’d dealt with this roofing supplier before when they did roof repair at his old house. So, he was sure they had the capability to handle a new roof replacement. After the roof replacement, the next job would be the interior, including adding new & updated appliances to my new home.
