Some more 'splaining

Don't send the troops after me, I am here. I am just working an excessive amount of hours right now. I leave the house around seven each morning and I am not getting home until seven or eight each night. On top of that, I have been bringing work home with me to do during my free time. However, all is well. I'm getting things done and that makes me feel good.

I'm still keeping in mind my need for balance in my life so I've been squeezing in time to do a little reading, work on some creative projects, get my place organized and socialize with my friends. Now, if I could only fit in time for romance, exercise, and a few other things - like journaling, it would be perfect. Oh yeah, sleep would be good too!

Now, to continue with explaining of the ten things entry:

4.   I have resided in nine states and have had over forty addresses within those states and only three of those addresses and two of those states can be attributed to the military.

I have listed the states and in parenthesis placed the number of addresses that I can recall. I think my count was a little off. There are three states and five addresses that I can attribute to my time spent in the military. Also, I am thinking that maybe I counted the summer I spent with my Aunt and Uncle in Michigan as the ninth state. The places with the largest address count are the places that I have lived the longest. As a matter of fact, this Memorial Day weekend will mark my nine year anniversary in Los Angeles. Other than my cumulative time spent in Texas, it is the longest that I have lived anywhere.

Trenton, New Jersey (1)
Levitown, Pennsylvania (2)
Flagler Beach, Florida (10)
Northeast Pennsylvania (3)
Presque Isle, Maine (1)
Limestone, Maine (1)
Northeast Pennsylvania (1)
Rio Grande Valley, Texas (2)
Fort Jackson, South Carolina (2)
Fort Sam Houston, Texas (1)
Fort Bragg, North Carolina (1)
Fayetteville, North Carolina (1)
San Antonio, Texas (6)
Dallas, Texas (2)
Los Angeles, California (8)

Sorry to keep it hanging on answering this but that's all I have time for now. Off to work I go, you know. I'll try to answer the rest a bit quicker.

Have a great day..happy trails!  Marc :)

Your list will never be complete without a Colorado address!! LOL rich

andreakingme said...

Holy. Friggen. Crap, woman! It's amazing to me that you've moved so many times. Lord love a duck!

Now about that work thing ... I hope the fact that you're getting things done means that you'll have more time AWAY from work and the workload soon. There's so much more to life than work, and I'm not above hiring someone to hog-tie your arse to a ... a ... a ferris wheel or something.
