Wow I am so jealous of you Mama's who live in the woods and great outdoors. It has been my dream all my life to live in the woods surrounded by trees and a water feature watching my children dig in the dirt and discover the natural world. Unfortunately I live in the biggest city in Canada which isn't all bad (we do have lots of green space around and there are some fabulous programs and schools for kids) but there are just so many people and cars and stuff :( My DH however is a city boy born and raised and is just to afraid to make the jump out of the city. He is worried about how he would make money and about how much work would be involved in living in the woods (personally I think it would be such rewarding work, like growing your own food, raising chicken, cutting and collecting firewood, etc) I really feel like living in the city is slowing eroding my soul :( There is a song by Hawksley Workman called The City is a Drag
It's killing us.
The city is a drag.
My heart's broke down and in the dirt
I feel like I'm dying slow and sure
The city is a drag
So hide your passions in between
The daily grind and broken dreams
No some will tell you toughen up
But this old life is all you got
It's burning down
It's big and shiny and improved
With no room left for me to move
Prostrate to this unending grind
Sure you'll make a lot of money
But you'll never make time
