41. Only 3 times since set out on my own, but too damned many times before I hit 14. It sucked

When I was a kid my father was always the type to chase "the two in the bush", never being satisfied with the bird in hand, so he was always hustling for a job with more status and money, but this somewhat reckless behavior also caused many times of tight finances. I was later to find out this caused a loss of stability that made my mother very resentful, and the resulting divorce and remarriage caused yet several more moves. As a result, I had the "privilege" of being the "new kid" at a school and neighborhood scores of times. That I was at the time short for my age and reserved didn't make it any easier. Because I was just a kid, I really didn't know any different, and was often genuinely surprised to hear how most of my classmates still lived in the house they lived in when they were born.
