No me-mes for me....

You have lived in a lot of different places. You are quite the nomad.

Things have changed massively for me in 5 years....

Oh you know how I feel about Arizona..I love it. For a few years I considered moving out there. Course I think that every time we have a huge snow storm.

I almost listed something about avoiding confrontation on my list of bad habits. It can be a bad habit, but sometimes it's best to hold back. So I couldn't decide whether it's a bad habit or just an annoyance.

Evil-E: I know you don't like the memes :-) I don't feel too nomadic as the three places in CA are right on top of each other...and I have lived in Glendora for the past 17 years or so. You have had a lot of changes just within the past 6 months or so!

Tara: I was born in AZ and was so little when we left that I don't remember living there. We have relatives there that I have visited and I do like it very much.
You may have a point about avoiding confrontation...sometimes it is for the best after all.

I lived in Phoenix too. In California I've lived in Angel's Camp, Leggett, Big Bear Lake, San Francisco, Venice Beach, Glendale and Eagle Rock. Wow. It looks like a lot when you list them all off, huh?

Oooooh what kind of sexy car? I would like to have a car that made people stop and look and think "Wow, what a nice car". :o) Sad but true.
I'm not a big mover... I lived in my first house from birth til I was 19, then my second house with my boyfriend/husband (same person ;o) for 13 years and the house I am in now for 6 sixs so far! All within a 15 mile radius! I need to get about more!

laura b. said...

Churlita: But you settled in a place you clearly love :-)

Daffy: I don't know much about cars, really. I actually think the Smart Cars are adorable, but not sexy. I might be too environmentally conscientious to get a truly sexy car.
Nah, you don't need to get out more. You found what works for you!
