I want to move away from it all

I want to have a bunch of kids and move to a house in the mountains. I want to be a sahm and homeschool them. I want to grow our own food and live off the land.

Dh thinks it's unrealistic. Maybe it is but it's what I want in life.

He doesn't think we can do it. He doesnt think I will like actually living like that.

Plan it out for him, on paper. Men like a solid plan.

Well if your kids never need medical care, or an education that surpasses yours, or any sort of social life whatsoever....and you don't need any sort of job at all to pay for that house in the mountains, or buy clothes as your kids grow, or buy food you cannot produce yourselves, or shoes, furniture, blankets, water....... it sounds like a fantastic plan.

that sounds like such a perfect life to me as well - but for us it IS unrealistic, unfortunately :(

We're working on living off grid now. So far we raise our own pork. We have about 10 years before we can retire and live on our little farm.
