The guard would probably be your best option then. You seem like somebody who has a good job, a family, and most likely is well established down in that area. An active duty enlistment would have you being stationed God knows where.
With the guard, you would only be required to drill one weekend a month and two weeks during the summer. Your job would be limited to what units are in your area, but in Florida there are somewhere around 15-20 different locations that you could be stationed...and it's all your choice. You could get assigned to a unit near Melbourne and never have to worry about being relocated unless you requested it.
Keep in mind though that Iraq and Afghanistan aren't finished yet, and there is a chance that you could get called up for a tour over there. Guard units are always notified well in advance of any deployments, so you would want to check what units would be deploying next if you are hesitant about going overseas right away.
