19-Somethin’ #22 plus Cat vs Human

This challenge is sponsored by P.S. Annie! It’s called 19-Somethin’, where participants answer a question about their past each day of September. Sounds like a fun way to spend a September, right?


22. When did you first live on your own? Did you buy or rent your first home? Do you have a picture of it? Please share it if you do.

I have moved so much in my life that I would prefer to never move again – but that probably won’t happen. I’ve never owned a home – renting and/or sharing with others. My first place on my own was to a 2nd story apartment in an old house in Olde Towne, Portsmouth when I was 19. A year later I moved to the third story in the same house. Then a move to share with a friend in Virginia Beach, then to a duplex in Norfolk, then back to Virginia Beach sharing with 2 other people; then renting a room from a married couple; then back to Norfolk to share with a mother and her two kids; then Norfolk again to share a mobile home; then back to Virginia Beach to share a townhouse with a friend; a move home to mom’s; a move to my sister’s house when she moved to North Carolina; then the big move to Georgia; back to my mom’s in Virginia Beach and finally to where I am now. I always swore my mom stole me from a band of gypsies since roaming is in my blood!!


Now a fun cartoon from Cat vs Human. Please visit their website for more fun!!

  1. I am tired just reading all the places you have lived. I am lazy and could never pack that often. I am going to print this cartoon- it is so me and my hubby.


  2. Not counting my four year stint in the military after which I went back to my parents home.
    Then at 31 I finally moved to my own apartment where I stayed for 22 years.
    Then I moved to Brooklyn where I have a housemate.
    Since I’m getting older I’ll probably move again to a place without stairs.


  3. Wow, I got tired just reading about your moves! The Norfolk/Virginia Beach area is where one of my aunts has lived for years. Her first husband was in the Navy. It was taking her home one year that I got a broken toe. It got closed in the car door by my cousin, but it wasn’t her fault. 🙂 Virginia Beach was my first time ever seeing the actual ocean. Daddy held me in it since I couldn’t walk because of my toe. That was a very happy memory for me.

    Do you like where you live now?

    Have a blessed weekend and thanks for playing along in our 19-Somethin’ challenge.
