The Country Boy is also looking forward to the space. He often says how there is not enough space in the city. He has already planned his new vegetable garden which is as big as our current front and back yard together. I am looking forward to the produce from his new vegetable garden! He is looking forward to roaming the paddocks, planting as many trees as he can, and doing other country things that a suburban girl like me just doesn’t understand.
Having grown up in the suburbs, I don’t crave the physical space the way CB does. I love the idea of lots of room for my kids to run around in, but don’t personally need physical space in the same way. The kind of space I am hoping for is a little different … I’m looking for some mental space. I’m looking for a more purposeful, slower lifestyle. I want time to be unhurried and relaxed. I want more time to focus on the things that are important to me. With 3 kids, that kind of space might be hard to achieve. I hope that with the physical space, will come the mental space that is missing in much of modern life. As I have said before, the country life will be a bit of an experiment, and so I might as well give space a try!
Do you think that physical space equals mental space, or am I just dreaming??
