    My dad moved us every six months. Basically because he’d get evicted from everywhere. I lived all over Southern California.

    Thankfully, my mother was a person who liked to stay in one place and she lived in the same house for 35 years.

    I never once moved. I grew up and lived at 940 my whole life. I raised my kids in the same house till they were almost grown. I have lived where I am now for 13 years and don’t plan to move again. Till I hit the old folks home. Me, with my “I hate change” mentality, this was a good thing. Or maybe not ever changing is why I’m the way I am????

    We only moved once and thats if you can actually call it a real move. We moved literally right down the road from where we lived before. No road name change, school change, town or anything else. Just houses..

    Too many to remember. I lived in at least a dozen or more different places all over California by the time I was 16 and then I was pretty much on my own. ( to list reasons would take too long). Lived with my sisters mom in Montana for awhile until she turned her back on me and then I stayed where ever I could, and then I was homeless for awhile. Decided to move to Minnesota and tried living with my Mom again (why she moved here is a whole other story!). That did not work, big surprise. And that’s when my luck finally changed and I meet my now husband Jason and he’s been taking care of me ever since. So if I had to estimate I would say around 20 or so. People ask me why I like to stay home all the time and it’s because I never really had one.

    We both share most of the same dreams and goals in raisning bailey. I’ve been there with most of the help coming from my family but you take care of me and bailey. You hace the best job. You see the first for everything. Bailey, Emily and every daycare kid you have watched. Most parents don’t see the first anything. We are both so lucky…….I love you

    Thank you Jason, I love you more!!

    Never. The first time I moved was away to college. My husband and I have lived in the same spot since before we were married and we’ll stay there forever I think! Maybe a different house, but same place.

    I never moved. My parent’s live where my mom grew up and we live on the next farm over. I’m sure we will never move either and our kids will most likely live around us unless they really don’t want this kind of live and if they don’t, that’s fine with me but I always wanted to be a farmer like my parents and my grandparents but it’s not for everyone.

    We never moved when I was growing up. I never knew what it was like to be the “new kid.”

    It’s a very uncomfortable, lonely feeling. Even though we’ve talked about moving out of this town we probably won’t because Bailey has such a good group of friends he’s had for the last 3 years. I don’t want to take that away from him. I want him to have life long friends. What a wonderful feeling that must be:)

    We moved around all the time. My parent’s were really those crazy “flower power” people who really had flowers painted on the van. They have calmed down somewhat but are still pretty “free” to do their own thing. It wasn’t bad, it was what I knew. I faired better but my brother is a slacker! I could adjust well in any situation but he was shy and felt awkward and just didn’t “fit in” like I did. My husband and I do very well and two years ago we bought my parents a little beach house on the ocean and they love it so now they are staying put but if not, I’m sure they’d still be drifting all over the place. They were true bohemians but very good people and my son loves them more than anyone.

    18 times in my first 18 years! 😀 Of course, now that I’m an adult, I hate moving. Dh and I have lived in the same home for 16 years.

  13. SKL says:

    Let’s see – age 1, 12 (to the house where my parents still live), 21 (to law school dorm), 23 (apartment 1 near school), 25 (apartment 2 near first job), 27 (to the house I’ve lived in for the past 13 years. So, six moves in 41 years. All of the homes were within about an hour’s drive of each other. I love my current home and would be happy to stay here for the rest of my life, if that is feasible.
