Enough - but full of 'not really'... oh, god, the irony...

I'm always swept up in a wave of 'like' things, as in, when I start ruminating on distraction, articles, influences, comments, etc. start flooding into my awareness, about 'distraction'.  Think about blue elephants for a while and certainly you'll start seeing references to them all around.  Saw a movie called The Blue Elephant last week and, while there is a battle scene at the end and a scary badguy elephant with red eyes, it is the new favorite of my two year old and I am a fan as well.  anyhow. its good, i think i'm going to get it again from the library.  the elephant's name is Khan Kluay... and my two year old says his name very precisely, and that is damn cool.

Hello? digress much?

this was supposed to be about enough. and i've lost  my train...
there it is.  so, the newest wave is enough, and less, and how to make a home in an urban setting which is what we would like - if we lived in a rural setting.  apart from moving, which we may do, especially as hubsJ is completely wigged out by a rollerskating party that our family attended for the school.  WOAH. who knew hubs J was so scared of our kid turning into a dark basement/fatty videogame junkie? who knew?!
(i've got NO problem with curvaceous adults, but do find it upsetting to see curvaceous children, hence the somewhat derogatory 'fatty'... not towards the kid itself but towards our whole culture which allows it...)  
now the news is that we need to move to the country, learn to knit, cut our own wood for heat and slaughter our own chickens. . .   all of us.
I might have a problem with the knitting as I tend to spend a lot of time on the computer and have a very finite need for scarves.

I could certainly make bread in this 'country' future of mine but I'm trying to be fairly reasonable with myself about what it is that I can actually achieve in this new move.  I'm all about not shopping these days, feeling fabu about every day in which I actively do not spend any money.  so there.  except for the 60 bucks at target when i went in for the shaving cream that they were out of stock on... glbualgha.

this is what i am saying:  we will move if we can sell our house. out to the country. 
quiet .

goats or sheep?  what say you?

hahahahah. (maniacal)

Well, it depends... goat cheese or wool sweaters? I do love a good goat cheese but think of all the wool felting craft projects to be had!

Condivido pienamente il suo punto di vista. Ottima idea, condivido.
Assolutamente d'accordo con lei. Penso che questo sia una buona idea.
