Places I’ve lived

I dreamed that I counted all the places (not cities) I had lived and got to 50. When I woke up I tried to count them. I can’t remember all of them in my head, so let’s try writing it down.

Okay, that’s 40 so far. So I’ve lived in 40 different places, at least. I am 45 years old. I moved a lot.

  1. Missed one, maybe 2.

    That place we lived the summer we were in Indiana. I’m assuming “Indiana room in house” was where you lived when we first dated.

    Also did you live in the corporate apt in Austin? Or were we out of that by the time you joined me there?

  2. Yes, I lived in the corporate apt in Austin, just off 35 where the church bell tower wakes you up. And I did forget the apt that was carved out of a Victorian house right near the railroad tracks where we lived when we worked for McDonald’s. Forgot both of those.

    42 and counting.

  3. I got to thinking about it and we lived in an apt in Charlotte, NC before we bought the house on Sharon Rd. It was a small apt right across the street from a 7/11. In those days we actually got a whole dollar for allowance and sometimes went there and splurged on an icee. We lived there, without a TV ever having been owned by our family, when Hank Aaron busted Babe Ruth’s record.

    So 43.
