I have lived in 14 different 'homes' over my 54+ years. Much of the roaming was done while I was in the military for 20 years. Some of my 'homes' were dorm rooms as the Air Force calls what the Army calls barracks. One such dorm was actually dubbed, The Hilton, by the Army personnel on the Army post who were in fact living their year-long tours in barracks, while us Air Force personnel on the Army post lived in dorm rooms. With carpet. Our own bathrooms. For shame.
I might have those very early years of life off by a couple years - no worries. But, I realized the longest I have ever lived in one place. Where I am living - right now! That's just crazy. Surprised me, too!
I should have included a few 'funny things' that I remember, or just something I remember, about each place. But, hey, I can still do that, right? Actually, now that I've said that - that would be another great scrapbooking page. Like, how, when I was way younger and my family - and I - were driving up I95 from Florida on our way to Pennsylvania for a vacation - probably a family reunion - and we drove by Savannah. And, I clearly remember saying I would never live there because it stunk (from the paper mill nearby). I can tell you now that the winds were blowing from the northeast that day we drove by, that day I said I'd never live in Savannah, that day it stunk. Because now that I actually live in Savannah - I know, right - I know that the only time it really stinks bad in Savannah is when the winds are from the northeast.
And, in Chanute Air Force Base, IL, when I was in weather forecasting technical school...I lived in a house with two other women which was for temporary duty personnel, I had a closet sized bedroom and we shared one bathroom.
Now, I am definitely going to put another page together...
Digitally, because this page is, of course, digital - I scraplifted the entire page from Ali Edwards who showed us this page in her HOME Story classroom. I am a monthly subscriber to her digital Story kits. As part of the subscription, besides the entire digital kit for the current theme - in this case - HOME, Ali also provides classroom instruction each month. It's truly an amazing deal! I have seriously told way more stories than I ever would have dreamed telling partly because I'm subscribed to Ali's Story kits.
And, aren't those little houses from the kit, just the cutest! The background digital brush wasn't a part of the kit but an add-on Ali provided in the story classroom. Pretty cool.
