I admit it, I'm stocking up on online time today, because where I'm going, I'll have to use *gasp* dial-up access.
- How many houses/apartments have you lived in throughout your life?
I'm a navy brat. Lemme see: 14.
Keywest, three locations in DC suburbs, Monterey, Houston, Iceland: off-base and on, two houses in Foster City, two houses in Sugar Land and a condo in Houston, then here. Do I count college dorms and living with my in-laws when I first moved to Kentucky? Then it would be 18.
- Which was your favorite and why?
Where I live now. All the rooms are huge, and there are plenty of them. We have a jacuzzi tub and separate shower in our master bathroom, and a giant jacuzzi for entertaining. Dating back to when I was addicted to TV, we have some 14 coaxial outlets for TVs, all connected to a wiring closet in the center of the house.
I have my own little space I can lock myself away in, and we built a water garden at the back door. I spotted two frogs in the water this morning -- it's clear enough to see them. :)
- Do you find moving house more exciting or stressful? Why?
I used to find it exciting, when the Navy paid for movers to do all the work. The itmes that Flar and I have moved, we've had to do all the packing, so that puts a big damper on the excitement thing.
Oh, and just to make life more interesting, we're still remodelling this house, so we get to repeat the packing monster every time we tackle a new room. The next one is the library. Some day.
- What's more important, location or price?
Location. I love living in Kentucky. Even if I do have allergies. So there.
- What features does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.)?
I liked Sydb's response to this -- maid quarters with live-in maid. Our dream house is this one, with the remodelling done, and a few things tidied up around the edges. There'd be an organized filing system, the sewing room would have a storage system with supplies organized by craft. We've already got the two jacuzzis I mentioned, and a large kitchen and pantry. We'd get a plasma TV and hang it on the wall, and return the TV we're borrowing from Knight, that's sitting on the console TV that's broken. And we want to build an outdoor pool and deck, and the pool would have a hot tub and waterfall, and maybe even a slide.
