20. In the last 32 years I've lived in 13 houses/apartments
Sat Feb 17, 2024, 07:26 AM
Feb 2024

Everything from a 6000 sq ft house built in the 1920's to a 600 sq ft studio apartment in a recently built downtown high rise of 23 floors. Three states, from Missouri to Nebraska to North Carolina.
Currently, I live in a 2 bedroom and den/ 2 bath, 2 car garage single level 1750 sq ft house built in 2020 for me. I have a small courtyard which overlooks a retention pond behind my house. The pond draws deer, coyotes, geese, ducks, great blue herons and the woods behind the pond are home to numerous birds of all sizes, including hawks and owls. In the summer, I can sit out on the courtyard and listen to the frogs and other sounds from the pond at night.

Both of my grown sons live within 10-20 minutes from my house. Any shopping that I need is 10 minutes or less from my house.

Hopefully, no more moves for me from here!

What exactly is a sitting room, and what is in it? Archae Feb 2024 #16
It's a sort of parlor, I guess. In my house I don't really know Ocelot II Feb 2024 #17
Yeah, my sister has a room like that, just inside her front door. Archae Feb 2024 #18
