- When is the last time you moved? September 2004, six blocks. Soooo happy I don’t foresee having to do that any time in the near future.*
- How many times in your life have you moved? Let’s see… we lived in the house on Moore Avenue until I was seven and then the house on 14th (that sold two years ago). Then I went to college and had six different dorm rooms in four years (including one summer). There was the summer in San Francisco too. After college I moved to Michigan, then to Minnesota where I lived first at a church family’s home, then in an apartment in Hopkins briefly, then down in Arizona for a summer, then into the house by the Fairgrounds (where I met ), then the house on Laurel, and then the place I’m at now. That’s…. too much to count. You do the math.
- In your opinion, what is the worst thing about moving? I think it’s the rush at the end, like you have all these high expectations of how wonderfully it’s going to be, how you’re going to sort through crap and throw it out, fix things, get different furniture, paint before moving in, whatever, and then none of it really happens because it all ends up in a blur. I also don’t like that sad feeling of seeing everything you own in the back of a truck and how shocking it is how little space it takes up.
- What is the most exciting thing about moving? New decorating possibilities. I usually move furniture around in a new place every few months for the first… year, until I figure out what works best for the space.
- If you’ve lived in the same place all your life, do you plan to move in the future? Not applicable.
- Do you WANT to move somewhere else; if so, where? No, I hate moving. I mean, eventually I’ll have to move (because I hope some day that at least I can afford an apartment on my own, or get married and have kids which would require a different living space), but I don’t want to unless it’s necessary. No frivolous moving.
*but there is some exciting house news about moving that I need to share when I get a chance.
