I count myself lucky to have had a mom who was the second oldest of 11 children who grew up in a shack in the Oklahoma hills. The grandparents (ok, my mom was 38 when I was born so we are almost talking great grandparents), simply did not know how to stop having children. Really.

But my mom said even though they were dirt poor, and went hungry, they would read aloud from whatever book they could get their hands on. And their children went to college and became doctors and lawyers, etc.

As far as I am concerned, that is the embodiment of the American Dream.

As they say "Be the change you want to see in the world". If you can't do it yourself, then don't expect anyone else to do it either. And that means our politicians as well. As for religion, that is for the same reason. Wants that are more than they have, more than they need. Wants can be material things, attention, money, power, religious beliefs. All the same. Just because one person says one thing and does another shouldn't mean we should ALL do it! It is our 'to each his own' thinking that got us into this position in the first place! And never, EVER, forget all YOUR choices affect every single one of us AND the earth we live on. None of us lives in a vacuum where our choices only affect us. Our choices DO affect every single other person and the earth as well. If you read my posts, I never say to NEVER live in a large house, I say you should only have as much as you NEED. A single person who lives alone, works outside the home, and rarely entertains cant possibly need more than 1,000 square feet. A family with 10 children may well need 3,000 square feet or more (I know a family like this--9 children but 7 of them are adopted--4 of them brothers and sisters from one family--ALL special needs--a very special couple). A retired older couple whose family lives across the country and don't entertain much shouldn't need more than 1500 square feet. If you work at home and need a workshop or art studio--well of course you need more space. The book I'm writing isn't about tiny houses. It is about 400-2000 square foot houses, but each of them will 'live' like a house double its size. It is important to take into consideration how many people you have, how many times you have people stay over, if you work at home and what type of work that is and how many hours each room is actually used each day. Get rid of HALLS! Wasted space completely. A house can be well designed with no halls or fewer than 10 square feet of hall space. A guest room can also be a den. An office that is used only during the day can be a guest room at night. BE SMART. You don't need 3 or 4 bathrooms if there are only 2 people. You don't need an 18 X 20 bedroom when you also have a den/family room and living room! This goes for buying a used home as well. If you plan to remodel--remodel SMART! Reposition windows and doors, add insulation, combine rooms, etc. Just be smart! Stop wanting SO MUCH. All of us and the world will be much better off if the wanting would be curtailed--and this includes those politicians.... Don't wait until it is too late.

Old houses have loads of charm and high ceilings, but would go modern just to be able to find everything maintenance wise. It would have to be a modern, traditional though!

When I think of all the things that can go wrong with an older home, give me new any day.
