It's Friday Five time!

1. How many houses/apartments have you lived in throughout your life?

Let me think. That I can remember...

Married student housing. The Laughten House. The compartment. The house inside Moscow. The house on the hill. Grandma's in Colorado. The house we rebuilt in Michigan. The house in Kings Mountain. Housesitting grandparents' house in Bountiful. The house in Farmington (where my parents still are). Alaska. Umm... There were the apartments in Kodiak, Big Lake, Seward, Anderson, North Pole, and Anchorage. The roommate share in college. The apt in SLC. The apt in Roslindale. The apt in Lowell. The apt in Ballard. The apt in Kirkland, where I am now.

That's 22.

2. Which was your favorite and why?

That's really hard to say.

3. Do you find moving house more exciting or stressful? Why?

More stressful than exciting. Very few of my moves have been entirely voluntary.

4. What's more important, location or price?


5. What features does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.)?

Nice yard, with a rock wall around it. Hot tub. Snug well designed kitchen. Big bathtub. Bookshelves. Close to friends.
