During the past year, and especially the past several months, my focus has been on what to do with the rest of my life and what state/city I plan to do it in. I've considered Seattle and Minneapolis since I would have family in both. When it comes right down to it though I have lived in Arkansas for longer than I've ever lived anywhere else and the thought of leaving here makes me very anxious. On top of all that, I'm now with a man who I'm not planning on being apart from, so Arkansas it is :-)

That being said my lease at this house will be up in April and I'll be looking for a new place to rent. It has served it's purpose as a place of transition but I'm ready for a place that has a washer and dryer and a bit more space. It's exciting to think of moving into a place with a few more conveniences and one in which I haven't gone through such massive upheavals as I have in this one. The only thing is...I'm so damn tired of moving!

When I was in Wisconsin my mom and I tallied up the times we've moved and my count is around 50. I've lived in 21 different houses in Wisconsin, at least 2 in Texas, 1 in Arizona, 1 in Chicago which we moved in and out of several times, 4 in Colorado, 3 in Minnesota, and 6 in Arkansas. My mom can add over a dozen more to that list but these are the places that I actually remember. Also, that doesn't include times where we lived in our vehicle or a motel or stayed with friends.

I want a home that I don't ever have to move from...It's going to take me a while to get there but in the meantime, I'll be packing boxes and searching Craigslist for the next big move... :-)
