We're missing a yard (as if living in a closet isn't bad enough). The kids surprisingly don't seem to mind, they think this dirt outside Eli's window is great. It's especially fun if the sprinklers turn on at night, because then there's a puddle. What more could you want?
Living more simply has really made me realize how unimportant a lot of things are. Lilly likes her closet, they both love dirt, we don't miss cable and the kitchen is tiny. Somehow we seem to be doing just fine, maybe all of those things are as necessary as I thought they were (although I'm really tired of people smoking outside my window!).
