I like both...I am not totally happy where we are now..which led me to think exactly what I would look for in my 'ideal' living situation.
-I want a huge front porch (that would ideally face west)
-I want to have a horse- I miss riding. I miss the wind, the smell, the horses, being up on a horse brings me peace- the best job I ever had was teaching riding.
-I want flowers and vegetables- growing my own reminds me of my grandfather.
-I want to be able to feel safe
-I want goats and sheep and chickens- maybe even a cow. I like knowing where my food comes from...
-I want a tree swing for the kids
all of this leads me to think that I want to live in the country. I like knowing my neighbors. The problems??
I hate driving. To live in the country would mean that you do not 'run out' anywhere...it is always a trip.
Doctors..If need be a firehouse is down the street from my house..and yes I have called 911 2x since we have been in this house.
food- i love ethnic food. real thai, real indian, real italian and if I want it I do not want to sub some sub par chain for good food. Heck even here I have not found 'the place' for half of my ethnic food cravings.
museums/libraries- I would miss them. So would the kids. We go to way to many museums
So where should we live?? Country or city??? any ideas??
