In a mere 14 days we will be moving from my "dream house" into something that is not exactly what I ever dreamed about, but I'm excited anyway.

Except that it is in the "country".

I don't really "do" country (I'm not as bad as Zsa Zsa, but think Green Acres). I have started laying awake at night worried about snakes and rabid raccoons and all sorts of things I just know lurk on my little 2.10 acres that I will soon call home. Now technically, we don't have a barn or a farm or anything like that, but we also don't have street lamps and sidewalks so that's the country, right?

Now, don't get me wrong, I would hardly say we're downsizing, it's just that I'm going to be like 20-25 minutes away from Wal-mart for heavens sake! Yes, I know. That could be a good thing.

Thankfully, the inside of the house is great because the outside is a faded tan rectangle. No need to use your imagination, just picture a faded tan rectangle on a 2 acre hill with wilderness and wildlife roaming about.

And, a jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom.

Oh,'s all going to be ok.......

i lived in the "country" growing up and i have the greatest memories of climbing trees, playing at the creek, running through the cornfields, chasing and being chased by wildlife. i think your kids will love it...and you too.
