I want to share my greatest desire with the world... i want to be a roadtrippin' family. Let me explain. Life is way too short and my kids will only like me and be with me for a short time...why not enjoy every moment?
The more we both work and lose ourselves in the rat race of life, the more i long for us to pause our life. Shawn is a very talented comedian. I mean, he is truly one of the funniest people i know. He is lucky enough to spend some time on this passion and make some money. The sad reality is that he will never make it big. That takes commitment and travel. His family is way too important for that...or is it?
What if we just said, screw it! What if we sold our house and bought a kick butt RV? What if we sold all of our belongings and packed up? I could homeschool. I would do it well without any weirdness. Our kids could see the country. They would see it with us. We could play, laugh and spend every day together.
we would absolutely lack in dough and we would not have structured schedule. We would wake up with no plans and have to spend days exploring our country. But, wouldnt it be worth it? Isnt life about taking chances and making daring choices? Really taking the opportunity to live the life you dream of living.
I am kind of sick of how often i think about this imaginary life and wish for it to be so. Maybe 2012 is the year of making this dream a reality. I am truly considering it. Live off the grid
and soak up Gods beautiful blessings which tend to disappear in the day to day routines. You could see us on My Big Fat Gypsy Comedy Tour...
Dont get me wrong...i love my life. I am blessed with an incredible husband, healthy children and an enriching job. My husband is a great provider and we are very comfortable. But, there are these moments where i have to ask "Dear God, its me, Katie. Am i living the life you want me to live? Am i being the wife and mom i need to be? Does my job and srangers get more of my time than my children?" I would love to see what God would say
