Most of these are from my own experience (a 1937 log cabin in the woods), so they may not apply to everyone. Probably most people would fork over the cash for new outlets at least!
Your walls get just as dusty as your shelves.
You see more
live deer than roadkill.
Half the ingredients in your dinner are
from your garden.
You don't own a lawn mower, because you don't
own a lawn (one of the potential benefits of living in the middle of the woods!).
Your kids know they're almost home when they hear gravel under the car instead of pavement.
The kids all fight over who gets the basement bedroom--that's the only room where they can paint the walls.
Your house has the same number of power outlets as it did in 1937--before laptops, DVD players, and cell phones.
You have a bridge to get from the driveway to the house, due to living on the steep side of a mountain.
Anyone else have a few to share?
