I have lived her longer than anywhere else

Joey and I moved into this house back in April of 2004. That means that we have been living together, under this roof for 13 years. I was like "Damn that's a long time", but then I started to really think about it.

The first home my parents and I shared, I lived there about 3 years. They we moved to another house and we were there for 10 years. Then in 1990 we moved to Moorpark and I lived in that house for almost 9 years. Then it was off to college and I didn't live anywhere for more than a year or two at a time. Then I landed here, and I have been planted here for 13 years. I have lived in this house longer than I have ever lived anywhere.

WHAT?!!?!???!?!

How is that even possible? I remember the day we got the call that Joey's offer on the house had been taken and we were homeowners. We were at Disneyland with little 4 year old Chone. While we were there we bought our first Christmas ornament, even though it was March.

It's crazy how fast 13 years can go by. Joey and I have always wanted to move closer to my family. When Phi was a baby we even put the house up on the market ready to move. The house didn't sell and Phi started school and now the kids have totally grown up here. We all have friends here. This is their hometown. This is our home. We have filled it with bright turquoise walls, coral doors, lots of art and even more memories.
