Places I've Lived

For some reason I keep thinking I should post this.  

Maybe it's because I'm using this blog to document our family history.  Maybe some day one, some, or all of my kids and/or grand kids will find it beast (aka cool) or whatever they'll call it in the future, to find out places where I've lived.  Or, maybe one day when I can't remember things so well I can ask someone to look at my blog and tell me where I lived.  It's part of my story.

Here goes. They are in chronological order.

  • Rockledge, PA (right outside of northeast Philadelphia)
  • Willow Grove, PA  (last two years of high school- stayed in same high school)
  • Indiana, PA- college
  • Wildwood, NJ -during a few summers in college
  • Washington, DC - during a summer as an ROTC cadet
  • Nahant, MA - for the summer after I graduated from college
  • San Antonio, TX - Officer Basic Course
  • San Fransisco, CA - first Army assignment
  • Monterey, CA - for the Army Adult Nurse Practitioner Course
  • Columbus, GA - (Ft. Benning) assigned to the 2nd MASH
  • Saudi Arabia - during Operation Desert Storm; it was a deployment, but I wanted to include it
  • San Antonio, TX - Army Officer Advanced Course
  • Shirley, MA (Ft. Devens) (While I was there I spent 9 weeks at Leavenworth, KS)
  • Heidelberg, Germany
  • San Antonio, TX
  • Fort Polk, LA (Leesville)
  • Suffolk, VA (near Norfolk/Virginia Beach)
  • Olympia, WA
  • Fort Polk, LA
  • Heidelberg, Germany
  • San Antonio, TX
I know, I know.  I should add the years. I could add them.  Not right now.  Maybe in the future.

Is that helpful/relevant to anybody but me?!   Does anybody else post stuff like that?  I did a little search after I wrote this and I found out that I'm not the only one who writes about this!!  Ah.  Whew.

Have we lived any places in common?

I linked up with Moments to Remember


  1. have been around! My son has traveled to 45 counties alone! He is only 27.

  2. Hi Susan, I was trying to decide if I should post about the places I've traveled to also, but I'm not sure I can remember them all. It would be fun for me if I did that. How has your young son been able to travel so much?

  3. Amazing list of places you have lived that you have shared with us at "Tell me a Story." San Francisco is across the bay from Oakland, and Oakland is where I grew up from age 5 through many years of adulthood. You definitely must write down your memories now. Please come back again and share them here.

  4. Thanks! I remember there was a great pizza place in Oakland, but I don't remember the name. I was stationed at the Presidio, San Fransisco.

    You are right about writing them down now. I could barely remember the order of where I lived.

  5. Being an army brat, I should do this. And yes, like we discussed at 2:1, I spent a large part of my childhood in the Ft. Polk area.

    1. Hi Lena, Yes, I'll encourage you to do while your young and can still remember!

  6. Hey Lena, What is the link to your blog? I'm trying to visit it.

    1. Hi Patsy,

      Thanks for visiting! For some reason I like moving around. I get to see new places, so in a way it's like a long vacation!

      I checked out your blog, and it's awesome! Beautiful artwork.
