We have had a string of bad weather and cold temperatures. Spring shows up for a few days, we get outside, then the north wind blows and we are running inside for warmth again.
My house is feeling very hemmed in and I’m struggling to graciously live in our little house on the farm. I long for the day when we will move across the yard and remodel a different house that will allow me some breathing room. Those people on TV that want to move into a tiny house are crazy!
Now that the kids are getting a bit bigger I would love for them to have some space of their own. ~And let’s face it, get them out of my hair a bit…
Luke’s farm set isn’t easy to get to because its parked under storage shelves filled with things that we use but don’t have space in the kitchen for. The girls have a deep freezer in their bedroom and no space to set up their dolls. Because of that, everyone ends up fighting for floor space in the living room. 8’x8′ of floor is getting small for their growing imaginations and my patience.
We have gotten creative to maximize every square inch we have and we are busting at the seams. Seriously, if you have been to my house you should be impressed at the ways we have come up with to make it all work!
However, I am grateful for our little house here on the farm. It comes with positives and I am thankful we don’t have to drive to get to work every day!
So in the spirit of being grateful here are 5 things I love about our little house on the farm:
- Low heating costs
- Less square footage to clean
- It doesn’t challenge my decorating skills
- It is easy to play a game of Hide and Seek!
- We spend a lot of time together
I’m looking forward to some warmth, sunshine and the ability to send everyone outside! Do you ever feel like you just need some room?
