Movin’ On, Baby, Yeah I’m Never Touchin’ The Ground

It occurred to me this morning that I’ve moved more times than I thought. In fact, since 1995, I’ve moved six times, counting the one we’re about to do. I wonder if that’s more than average? Here’s the rundown:

1995 – Moved to Somerville, MA
1999 – Moved to Allston, MA
2001 – Moved to Arlington, MA
2001 – Moved back to Somerville, MA
2003 – Moved to Maynard, MA
2007 – Moving to…..Maynard, MA

On average, that’s a move every two years. Me no likey. However, my last two stints have been pretty stable – two years in Somerville and four years in Maynard. So the business development guy in me would also say that I’ve only moved once in the last six years. Which reminds me – moving with 5-month old twins – it’s pretty much a pain in the arse. Not recommended.

So there will be less than usual posting here in November. Why? Because our house is just starting to look like Baghdad. Evidence:

Looks like fun, doesn’t it? How many times have you moved in the last 10-12 years?

    Let’s see…

    In 1995 I moved back to Baltimore.
    In 1998 I moved half a block down the street in Baltimore.
    In 1999 I moved clear across the country, to SF.
    In 2002 I moved about one mile closer to the Pacific Ocean.

    Between 1989 and 1995 I lived in five different dwellings, not counting living at my parents’ house periodically. And in eighteen years, I have had a staggering 31 different roommates/housemates, one of whose names I cannot remember.
