Mommentator told me I needed to post. And she’s right.
I have all these big thoughts in my head about simplicity and living with less and living life more like my grandparents but with Kate Spade and a jacuzzi tub.
I’m trying to clean my damn house. Trying to organize 2400 square feet. Because SERIOUSLY that’s 800 feet per person in this house. If I count the cats (which I might as well, they take up as much space in my bed as I do) then it’s still 480 square feet each and I should be feeling like I’m spinning on a mountaintop like I’m fucking Maria vonTrapp, not like I’m starring in Sanford and Son.
I’m obsessed with Tumbleweed Homes look how cute this house is
Their LARGEST home is less than 900 square feet. I’m obsessed. Don’t tell hubs. I’m sure he would be unimpressed. Maybe if we had a shop for him the same size as the house …
For now, I’m off to pick up the dining room and do some dishes.
Mommentator only misses your insight.
In my neck of the woods, painting your house these cute colors would probably be akin to trying to legalize gambling. I am certain the historical society would have to come out and approve the aesthetic nature of my scheme. Meanwhile, all of the members live in rundown shacks with old Cooter working outside on the carborator. But, *they* have authority because their grandma’s cat settled here in the early 1880’s.
I can’t go small because my kids would not have a lair to hide in while I read newspaper and get hyped on caffeine. They are small but not stupid.

I want a tumbleweed house in my backyard… I would use it once a month, about every 28 days you know. I could call it my shrieking shack. When the dark cloud rolls in here for five days, I can leave to my own private sanctuary and suffer by myself.

I’ve had the thought many times that I would just love to pick up and move…not for more space, but less. I’m sick of stuff. I’m longing for something more simplistic. I want less. I think that house is adorable.
We have 1300 sq ft for the 4 of us. Plus a dog and two cats. Thank gawd Shortman is past the toy stage. Now all of his toys keep getting smaller – and more electronic. 😉

I just worked out the square footage of my house, just for you. 830sqft if you’re interested. 2 kids, a dog and a shitload of mice. Also, enough books to fill an entire room.
It’s nice. But also, sometimes? I wish I just had a little room that was all mine.

Hmmm, is it weird that I completely forgot that Nathan and I live here too? Maybe that’s because with the kids I sometimes forget who I am.

The Other Dawn
I’m sorry… the room went a dim green when you said 2400 feet. We’re rocking about 1200 here, with two adults and three very loud children. It’s not the size that counts, it’s the high plastic-to-human ratio that’s killing us here. And the one bathroom thing.
And yes, I have sent my son out to the back yard to pee on more than one occasion.

if it were just me i could live in a tiny hobbit house. but with the hubs and the 2 dogs… no way!
I LOVE that house!
Our house is the same size and I hate it. It’s too much to keep up with and I’ve tried to talk Mark into moving but he ain’t havin’ it. So I’m going to make HIM start cleaning the house. I’ll bet we have a “For Sale By Owner” sign in the front yard by the middle of next week.;)
