Git's degree of flexibility in what is considered "the server" is valuable 
here.  I advise that you simply try a configuration, and see how it works.  
It's easy to change where origin points later.

With that said, like you, I have a small ad-hoc setup of automated rsync 
backups between my various computers and servers, and I have found some 
characteristics useful:

* I have rsync saving backups into dedicated backup folders on the remote 
machines.  This eliminates ambiguity of what to back up (server A won't blow 
away server B's Documents folder, for example).

* Using a publicly accessible server has been useful.  I set up port forwarding 
to the machine, and set up a domain name pointing to the server.  In general, 
when I have Internet access, I can access the server that contains my 
repositories.  I always use the same domain name, even if I'm in the same room 
as the server.

Hope that helps,
