As a kid, we lived in ten different houses between the time I was five and 18. I went to five different elementary schools between kindergarten and sixth grade.
It explains why all the muscles in my body tense up when I find out that they are selling the rental house we live in and we have one month to move!
We have been lucky to have this rental for four and a half years at a pretty good price. I am not sitting well with the idea of an intermediate change before we buy a house. I am really a creature of habit. I love our neighborhood, house, the proximity of everything, etc.
I am going to try and embrace the idea of change, very directly, that we did not plan on. I really hate the idea of Julia going to a new school but I guess that doesn't necessarily have to happen. I know there are other good schools, too.
I was just hoping the next change we made was to buy a house, not to rent a new one.
