Poor Princess Magpie is NOT enjoying this house. Every other day she comes to me with requests for our next house. Here is her shopping list for a new house:
- She wants a basement because, "they're cool to explore in".
- She wants a backyard because we have none here, it isn't safe to let her play outside our door and she misses our yard.
- She wants playroom/classroom because it meant her toys were organized on a more regular basis
- And if she could have anything in the world, she would like her own room, but she doesn't mind sharing with her sister if she can have a yard and a playroom.
Prince Charming just really really wants to move out of the city. He is tired of bad neighborhoods and hearing of crime all the time. I get that too and I know my kids like the freedom of small town living.
I like my neighbors here. I like having things relatively close by. I like having friends close by. I would honestly stay in the city or at least close to it if we could but I get that it would make everyone happy if we don't stay here. And, I know that I LOVE small town living too. My only thing is that I am tired of limbo. I am tired of not being settled. That may be contributing to my wish to just stay put. I sort of feel like if I have to move, let's just get it over with. But I am being a grownup and planning and saving and doing it right.
