I had to have a good, sit-down think today about living on the property I own in the country. I love the idea of having no mortgage, but I don’t drive, so living out of town would mean I’d have to give up my job.
I really like my job. I enjoy getting out and seeing different people every day. If I move out of town, I’d be relegated to being a stay-at-home mom, and I’m not very well suited to that.
I think we’re planning to just build a vacation space/emergency fort now. Of course, it could still change, but this way, we’d have what we need, but not any excess.
