yep, i'm that boring

I may be the boringest person on the planet and if you don't believe me... please keep reading. You see my bloggy friend, Merry was asking on her blog today... If you could love anywhere in the world, where would you live?

I gave it some thought. And then I thought about it some more. There are some amazing places out there in the world, but if I'm being completely honest I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I know that's unbelievable to a lot of people. Well maybe the next town over. A couple of friends and I have plans to buy side by side by side mansions and live compound style. But with house prices being what they are none of us will realize that dream anytime soon.

The thing with me is, my family is my entire world. And when I talk family I'm talking bigger than Mike and my kids. Our parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, our friends and so on. I couldn't leave any of them behind. Of course in an ideal world they'd all pack up and move with us to The WCN's part of the world, but that is just as unlikely as the side by side by side mansion dream. The other thing is I live my life in such a completely different way that I have for the past forty years that right now it feels like a brand new place and I love it.

Where would you live if you could live anywhere?

I love that you are super happy where you are right now. I totally get the family thing though I've never lived near mine as an adult so I don't even think about that part.

I feel the same way - not necessarily because of family, but because here is my home and I feel at home here, and I can't imagine having that feeling anywhere else. I'm not a great traveller in general and I can't think of anywhere that has something so awesome that I would need to be next to it every day to be happy. Ottawa has all I need - fun indoors and out, lots of great activities and culture and shopping, friends and family...a little less snow might be nice :). But otherwise - I'm staying put!
