Here we go again
I hate moving. Seriously, hate it. Unfortunately it's something I'm right in the middle of right now. Feels like not that long ago I was packing up everything and now I'm doing it again. This time I plan to stay put for a while. No more boxes, packing or unpacking for me for a while.
When I was a child I had to move a lot. I think that's part of the reason I despise it so much now. I lived in five different states by the time I was thirteen and I wasn't even a military child. That just counts state moves, not the amount of times I moved to different houses within those states. Finally we moved to Oregon and stayed there until we moved to California four years ago.
I do not want to do that to my kids. I hated starting a new school and leaving my friends when I was younger. My oldest will start Kindergarten this summer and so it's time to settle down to insure she doesn't have to deal with what I did as a kid. In some ways I'm lucky to have seen so many different places but I'm thinking from now on, I'd like to do that more in a vacation capacity rather than moving.
What is your favorite place that you've ever lived? Have you had to move around a lot? Would you like to move somewhere different than where you live now?
