Did you move?

The other day while I was going over orders from my Avon customers, I noticed a Direct Delivery order (that’s an order someone places online, to be shipped directly to their address)….and saw that my customer had moved.  She didn’t move very far – across the bridge…about 30 minutes away (on a non-traffic day, ha ha) but then I realized I was sending her brochures to the local address near my house.

After contacting her to verify, I immediately changed her address in my computer.  It then got me thinking about “moving”.  I know people who have moved 4-5 times in their lifetime and then there are people who have lived in the same house all their lives.  My in-laws for instance.  MIL grew up in the house she lived in, married and stayed there and passed away there.  I on the other hand have lived in two counties and 7 neighborhoods….I lived in 3 neighborhoods when I was single and when I married we moved 4 times.

I wonder if there are any others who have stayed in one house?  It was common years ago especially when members of the same family all lived on the same block….but today with traveling as easy as ever, people tend to move away more often – because of jobs, because of disasters, because of climate, because of needing larger houses.

How many times have you moved?  Why?
