So tonight I thought I would write about myself a bit. I have an interesting fact about myself that isn’t quite unique to just me but in my circle it is, their aren’t many people who have lived in as many places as I have. When I was growing up I wasn’t a military kid at all…Quite the opposite actually, my mother was a hippie and a very bad mate chooser! She really would go out and find the worst guy she could and she would be in love…My childhood moving badge came from the fact that she would break up, or get evicted or get beat up so we would have to move a lot…I have lived in around 110 houses at last count…and I am not even 40!
I know she never meant for it to be that way but it was, I lived all up and down the west coast and over into Az and Colorado. Spent a lot of time in San Diego as a child and young adult…Then I found Washington state and had not been since childhood..I was born on Bainbridge Island but left by 2 so i didn’t remember it at all. And I am never leaving, I love it here so much! Living in so many places has taught me a lot about what is important…Having my house burn down once taught me even more…But I guess I am grateful for all the experiences and stories I have from childhood… Grateful I lived at all!! My mom was a little too free spirited for my liking, now looking back, since I am a mother now I realize that they took a lot of chances with us that I am not willing to make with my kids, but since I turned out alright I try to relax a little about what is important…I still don’t have a house of my own but we are trying so hard to make sure our kids have a place that is always HOME, I didn’t have that and I still don’t…No where to go but my own place, I left when I was 16 and never went back..No where to go back to by the time I was 22 my Mom had nothing, she quit working and was on drugs, after she got sober she never worked again either due to some injuries I guess…Just don’t want to give up on giving my kids what they need even if I do have a tumor in my back and I broke it, I try to make money doing things to help them..And help my hard- working, amazing husband….So i am hopeful that one day the number of houses that I live in will stop growing and never change..I want security and I want my kids and grandkids to have somewhere to always go , no matter what…Don’t we ALL deserve that??? Good night my friends..Hope to hear some more feed back, I love hearing from you all! ~D
