Hey, when you live on the outskirts of Albuquerque, Omaha looks pretty impressive. They have so much water and greenery!
Anyhoo, here is the response to my urban-living fantasy, posted by Sexy Nerd's mom:
"No, no I was thinking farm...barnyard full of chickens, ducks, goats...and a garden to spend hours tilling and weeding... freezers full of the fruits of your labors...at least 3 kids running around climbing trees... just saying."
Her comment made me smile, but I couldn't think of a reply. Granted, I did enjoy watching that online video of a rambunctious goat frolicking on top of a pig. The little guy reminds me of Pica. And I'm sure there are fruit trees in Omaha, as well as ponds we could walk to to feed the ducks (or just watch them, as I'm not keen on sharing my stash of bread). But 3 kids? Realtor.com and my budget tell me that we're living in a modern, 750 sq ft condo in our imaginary new life in Omaha, within walking distance to a selection of happy hours.
I'm not sure we're on the same page.
Or stick them on the balcony and litter box train them. Jack Russells are smart like that.
