We're moving this weekend, and I'm trying to pack up the rest of our stuff. It's laborious and painful, but I just keep thinking that this will be our last move for a while, and that we're moving into our very own, sweet and freshly painted house. And life there will be wonderful. Do you know that I have moved 13 times in the last 15 years? Check it out:

1992: moved to Bangladesh for 7 months
1993: moved to first dorm room in college
1994: moved to first apartment sublet with A.
1994: moved back to dorms
1995: moved to summer sublet (with J, M, B)
1995: moved to first apartment (A & J)
1996: moved to studio apt. by self
1997: moved to 1st San Francisco apt
1998: moved to 2nd SF apt
2000: moved to 3rd SF apt
2003: moved to Chicago
2005: apt. went condo, moved to 2nd Chi apt
2007: this move

That sucks! I'm seriously sick of packing up my entire life every year! Well, I gotta get back to it...

An even crazier game is trying to remember the phone numbers!
I love your new house, and I anticipate many extremely fun back-yardings. :)

The phone numbers! Are you kidding?I can't believe you remember the apt. #! What a noggin you have!

Right?!? I bet she knows her old locker combo... Actually, I used to remember mine from HS, but I can't think of it now...

Yeah, I can't remember anything anymore, because of grad school, but I do know that I've moved 10 times in 10 years. I haven't moved since I moved in to Andy's house and I want to live there forever!

Locker combo? Clearly you did not go to a hippie alternative school. I know nothing of your locker combos! My locker had a beautiful seascape that I and Greta painted on it.
And anyway, special k, I happen to know for a fact that you have a rather beautiful book of your former abodes. Don't try to act like you are any less meticulous! (:
