Moving Day

Moving

Moving Day is here. It’s actually tomorrow but it’s mostly all I’m thinking about today. I’ve moved too many times since high school, I really should be an expert at it by now. I think it’s something that doesn’t get any easier. A quick summary:

 

  1. Jun ’97 – Minnetonka to Eagan.
  2. Aug ’97 – to Cleveland for college
  3. May ’98 – back to Eagan
  4. Oct ’99 -Apartment in Bloomington
  5. April ’01 – move near Lake Calhoun
  6. Aug ’01 – different place in Eagan
  7. Nov ’01 – back to the 1st place in Eagan (Mom’s)
  8. Dec ’01 – buy new house in Minneapolis
  9. Nov ’03 – Move to SC
  10. Dec ’03 – Different place in Columbia
  11. Jul ‘ 04 – another place in Columbia
  12. Jul ’06 – Yet again in Columbia
  13. Aug ’06 – back to Bloomington, MN
  14. Jul ’07 – NE Mpls
  15. Feb ’08 – back to my house in S Mpls

Yes, tomorrow is the 15th move since graduation high school. If this was an anniversary it would be crystal. The modern version is a watch. So maybe I’ll get myself a new watch as a gift.

    1) 1996 Parent’s house
    2) 1996 Dorm 1
    3) 1997 Dorm 2
    4) 1998 Mpls. Apartment 1
    5) 1999 Mpls. Apartment 2
    6) 2000 NJ Apartment 1 (Morris)
    7) 2001 NJ Apartment 2 (Mahwah)
    8) 2002 NJ Apartment 3 (Hoboken)
    9) 2003 CA Apartment 1 (Moss Beach)
    10) 2003 CA Apartment 2 (Montara)
    11) 2005 MN House

    That’s 11 different homes. I didn’t count moves, if I had I would be at lucky 13 and holding. Still no watch though. BUT. Almost all of my moves were done solo (and without a net!) Plus, I’ve been party to helping fools like you move more times than I can count.

    A paragon of stability:

    1984: to dorms
    1985: from dorms to parents
    1986: parents to DC
    1986: and back
    1988: parents to Lanham
    1989: Lanham to Takoma Park
    1990: Takoma Park to Bemidji
    1990: Bemidji to Fargo (dump)
    1991: Fargo (dump) to Fargo (maid service)
    1994: Fargo (maid service) to Bemidji (dump)
    1995: Bemidji (dump) to Pine River (golf course)
    1997: Pine River (golf course) to New Hope (dump)
    1998: New Hope (dump) to Saint Paul (small house)
    2006: Saint Paul (small house) to Saint Paul (dump while small house was turned into big house) to Saint Paul (big house)

    So, 14-15 moves in 22 years.
