Moving on up!
We have been living in a small town in northern Indiana for the last four years. This might be the longest I have lived anywhere.
No wait, from birth to age five I lived in the same house, by the bay, in southern Texas. Then we moved to Florida and we kept moving, every couple years, to a bigger house or smaller one, depending on my mother’s financial situation. If I am counting correcting I lived in 9 houses (and went to 13 schools) from age 5 – 18.
Then, once I was out on my own, I moved year or so, living in 10 place, in 12 years.
The 11 years my husband and I have been together and have had our daughter we’ve lived in Virginia, 4 different places in Southern California, and then Indiana. I’ve worried about moving around so much with my daughter and if I was doing her any damage. I guess time will tell.
But right now we are all just really excited to be moving again. This time we are heading to Philadelphia. We will be working and living in the city, with all that has to offer (museums, restaurants, cool shops, public transportation, etc.) And Philly is real close to New York and not much farther from D.C..
We are renting a house this first year, which means we will be moving AGAIN next year when the lease is up, and moving into the house that we buy. Fun! Not really, moving sucks. That is all I am doing these days, getting ready to move. I am almost too busy to excited about my awesome new future. Almost.
So, how often have you moved?
