Day 79 of 365: I Get Around
I was filling out an application today where I had to list all my previous addresses (blurred in this photo to prevent stalkers) covering the past ten years. Talk about an exhaustive list!! I decided to leave out the six addresses from Athens, Ohio - during my time at Ohio University, since I basically used just ONE address consistently back in Columbus as my permanent address for those three years. If I include those addresses, however, that makes my total 12...and now that I am here in England, that's 13. Yep folks, thirteen addresses -- 6 cities, 2 states, and two countries -- in just ten years.
I'm sure that is not as daunting as some may think, but it seems like a lot to me. In fact, it is why I have decided to affectionately title the blog the way I did. The people who know me well enough will appreciate the humour. The people who don't...well, they'll probably misunderstand the intended sarcasm and judge me (just not to my face).
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
