In addition to that there are beginning to be problems with the house and, with a landlord who is more concerned with other areas of his life, I don't see any fixes on the horizon anytime soon. I can live with a roof that leaks a bit, a front door lock that sticks, and a dishwasher that is busted among other things but not having hot water since the weather turned cold is pretty much the straw that broke the camel's back so I am looking elsewhere in Norwich and have my fingers crossed that something suitable will turn up soon.
Moving, though, gives me mixed emotions as I've never ever in my entire life lived anywhere longer than I have lived in this house. Anything over two-and-a-half years is a record for me as I grew up a military brat, joined the military myself, and then continued to move every so often right up until I settled into this house in April of 2002. Moving was a way of life and I never minded it as my roots were shallow and it was easy to pull them up. This time the roots run a bit deeper and I'm going to have to dig a bit to get them out but get them out I will.
By now you're probably wondering what on earth all this has to do with any sort of a question but trust me - there's one here and I'm getting to it right now! While I was thinking about the fact that I finally managed to stay in one place for a good chunk of years before I got a major itch to move, I got to wondering how long most people live in one spot and so that's my question for this post -
What's the longest you have ever lived in one place and where was/is it?I know that there are some people out there who spend almost the entirety of their lives in the same place, a concept that is very foreign to me!, but I'm sure there are others who have moved almost as much as I have. So, it's your turn - let's hear it from you while I peruse Craig'sList and see what's available in the Norwich area for a single mom, her teenage daughter, and a couple of well-behaved reptiles. Wherever it is, hot water is a must and no hills would be a major bonus!
