Thoughts for Thursday - The Simple Life


Can't believe we have been iced in here in Atlanta for 3 days now! I know some people are going stir crazy. I, on the other loving it! My hubby, 3 kids, and I...pajamas for 3 days....nowhere to go for 3 schedule to alarm clocks to wake up to. It has made me very thankful for food, heat, and a roof over my head! We have played cards, snuggled on the couch, danced like a bunch of goofballs, and just chilled out.

Last night I watched, "Eat, Pray, Love"...the movie that just recently came out w/ Julia Roberts. Several people had told me it wasn't that great, especially compared to the book. Well I loved it! I could so do something like that in a heartbeat! In fact, ever since I saw it, I have been trying to figure out a way to do that w/ my fam. Just move to Bali, home school the kids, and live the simple life! Makes me want to disconnect from it all. Remove myself from Facebook, Blogging, school and all the demands that brings, sports and ball practices during the week, etc.

But then reality sets in. Can't move away from the hubby's stable job....can't take the kids out of school....and would I miss everyone and everything after a while?

Anyone else ever feel like getting away from it all and living the simple life? Or is it just me?

Nope. It's not just you. I've been dreaming for a while about escaping the suburbs and moving somewhere either more urban or closer to nature. I guess the grass is always greener... :-)

It's not just you. I'd love to live a simple life...but some place warm. I don't like the snow and cold weather any more.
