Do people really live like that?

I was listening to the song “Up on the Ridge” by Dierks Bentley and it got me to thinking. Do people really live like that or is it just an image of a goal we wish we could achieve? Like the idea of a house with a white picket fence, two kids and a dog; is it merely a metaphor?
In the song he sings of having time to gaze at the stars and dance around a bonfire living and loving life. Well, I don’t know about you but my life is so damn busy I have to do ten things at once most days. I don’t have time to even watch a full length tv show or read a chapter in a book that isn’t a children’s bedtime story.
My husband says that there are people who live like in the songs but they don’t strive for a high quality of life. They just live for what makes them happy at the moment. I have a suspicion that the only people who can live that way are kids just out if school who haven’t yet taken in the responsibilities of family and careers.
I keep looking at my life and wondering how I could adjust my life so that I can actually take the time to enjoy the summer or even take a vacation. I don’t see it. Maybe I’m blind or just too ambitious. I have my job, my blog, my writing that I’m working on and that I’m trying to submit to publishers, the crafts I make to sell, fruit trees I have to keep up with, a yard that seems to be able to make anything grow to gargantuan size, building repairs, two kids with full summer schedules and a husband that travels for work and is gone 6 weeks at a time. I’m not sure what to cut.
I envy those people who have no goals in their lives. That are happy just being and seeing what happens next. I would love to have that little pressure in my life. Sadly, even though I envy them I will never be them. I can’t help myself. I must write. I must create. And I will not give less than my very best when it comes to my family. So I guess I will never be living “Up on the Ridge”.
