I have lived in 30 homes. Way to long to discuss. I will say that they were in California, New York, Arizona, and Florida. We lived in site builts, and manufactured ones. We lived very short times in all of them. Some were on the water, others the mountains. Each time I say, that's it, no more moving. We end up moving again. The next one is going to be in a RV. That's it I hope.

For the first twenty six years of my life I lived with my parents and I still go back to the same house where I was born to visit them. It has two bedrooms and is a semi-detached. I did own half a house with an ex, it was a beautiful house, four bedroomed, semi out in the countryside, big garden, double-glazing, garage, an office and a beautiful lounge and chandeliers, unfortunately I split up with my partner and I was bought out, I went back to living in a small bedsit for a while before moving to a house, but only a two bedroomed, two up two down house. I have moved a lot since leaving my parents. I do not like to settle in one house for too long. I can easily visualize every house I have lived in and can picture them in my mind with ease as though I am playing a video camera in my head, I know every room and the set out of each house I have lived in.

Well I haven't lived in all that many but yes I remember them all. Well I take that back I don't remember the one too much from when I was under 3. Just a few things about it but not enough to say I remember it all. The most well known house I from when I was little was our house in Michigan. It was a ranch style home with a full basement. We lived off the main road in the country and our drive way was the legnth of a football field. It was also a cinder driveway. Let me tell you it hurt when you fell on that. The next was our house here in Florida. It seemed really small compared to our one up north. No basement, half the room size..it was small to me. My parents still live there now. I lived in a mobile home for awhile. It was smaller then my parents house but it wasn't too bad. The neighbors though didn't like us there since they were all senior citizens and we weren't. However as soon as we could we got out of there and we are now in the house we live in now. It's nice. Could use a few things of course to make it better but overall I like it. We aren't cramped in it so that makes me happy. Just wish the kitchen was bigger. It's really small. In between my parents home and the mobile there were some apartments but there really isn't much to say about those. They just kind of blend together after awhile.

It would take me a day to list out all the places I have lived in my life. Many of them are a blur. We have happily lived in our current residence for 7 years now. Prior to that we moved 2 times. But that was my second marriage. Prior to that with just the kids I moved 4 times. When I was with their father I moved 8 times. I will not even go into my childhood.

I lived in many houses when as a kid, some I was in for such a short time I can't even rember. The one house I loved the most was my grandmas. We moved in there when she passed away. That was a really nice house. I had a basment. I still miss it. We had to sell it when my parents didn't pay the taxes on it for several years.

hahahaha I could write a novel on all the houses I have lived in my life. So how about a brief summary of each. Peony Lane - Orlando, FL is the first house I was in as a child. I lived with 4 other siblings until my mother and father divorced. We (my sister and my mother and me) moved in with this woman until my mother found another place. That house was out in the country with animals all over the place and wooded area. Very nice and peaceful. Then we lived in a house with her drunk boyfriend. Not a very great house...but mostly because of the activities that went on within the house. After that, we moved into a very very small house. I must say, it is the smallest house I have even seen! It is amazing that it was a stand alone house it was sooo small! From there I was sent to my aunt's house. Lived with her for a while until I was put in a foster home house. Hated that! There were anyway from 4 to 6 girls to a room. A very sertile environment that lacked of any love or caring. After that I was given to my father and stay in a duplex that had live in babysitters while my father lived with his wife. But given a year later...my dad's wife agree to let me move in. Another very sterile house!!! It didn't last too long. LOL So my dad and I moved into a rent a room with this family that converted their garage into a rental. Thank goodness we were not there for more than a few months. Because we then moved into a house that my dad's boss was renovating. But we were able to live in the front half of the house even though it got really loud at times and dusty. After the house was done, we moved into another dupluex for a year. It had a very sweet little old lady attached to it. I would visit her often! My dad and I had to share a room. But once that lease was up we moved again into an apartment. This apartment was up the stairs and with my father being ill, it was always so hard for him to climb the stairs but he did it! I could go on and on about all the different houses I have lived in. I have moved so much in my life, I could not imagine what it is like to stay in one place for very long. Let's just sum it up to after that last mentioned, I lived in an additional 10 apartments and 12 houses. All of which I remember well. But since I have lived in so many areas and places...this could turn out to be a novel! :)

I remember all but the first one. We moved fro there when I was around 1 yr old. After that we lived in Va. Our seond house had a huge tree in the front yard I loved to climb. The next house was in Ga. We had a pool in the back yard and a convenience store next door. Then we moved again. This house had windows all around the front and side. It had a small patch of woods behind. Past that there was an interstate. The last place we lived was across the subdivision from the last home. Not much special about this one. It did have a back porch. I remember my mother putting all her plants out there in the summer. It was like a varitable jungle. I now live with my husband and his two kids in Fla. It is an old home from the 1900's and built like a rock. More like lighter-knot anyway. I like it beause we have 30 acres to do as we please.:)
