Five Things for 4 April 2003

1. How many houses/apartments have you lived in through­out your life?
Hmmmm…21. Five places with my par­ents, two dorm rooms, and a suc­ces­sion of hous­es apart­ments since then. Three moves were large­ly due to the stalk­er creep.

2. Which was your favorite and why?
This one, I think. The best mem­o­ries are here.

3. Do you find mov­ing house more excit­ing or stress­ful? Why?
A lit­tle of both. It’s always a has­sle to move, but it’s usu­al­ly to a bet­ter place, too.

4. What’s more impor­tant, loca­tion or price?
Both. I won’t live in a crap­py neigh­bor­hood at all, though, so I guess loca­tion is more impor­tant to me.

5. What fea­tures does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.)?
Hmmm. My dream house has lots and lots of shared and pri­vate space. There’s enough yard to real­ly insu­late us from any neigh­bors. It’s on a qui­et street that does­n’t go anywhere—I real­ly pre­fer cul-de-sacs or a long pri­vate dri­ve off a fair­ly qui­et road. Mature decid­u­ous trees—no pines ANYWHERE near the house (I’ve had one come through the roof before, thanky­ou­very­much, and that was more than enough.) A nice big front porch that wraps all the way around the house. Lots of win­dows and high ceil­ings, for light and that feel­ing of space. Fire­places. Hard­wood floors. A roomy garage that does NOT face the street (I don’t want the first thing I notice to be the garage), and a gen­er­ous­ly-sized dri­ve­way. Plen­ty of bed­rooms and bath­rooms for the fam­i­ly and guests. A nice open floor­plan in the main area—great room, kitchen, etc, and a play­room for the kids. CAT‑5 cable already installed, with net­work, phone, and cable TV jacks every­where we might pos­si­bly want them. I dream of a roman tub that we can soak in, and a pool would be love­ly but I don’t real­ly like tak­ing care of pools. I guess it would have to come with staff 😉
