10 years and counting

So an amazing anniversary happened on February 1st and i didn't even acknowledge it at all...i meant to, and then completely forgot...As of that date, it is 10 years of me living in this house...thats right, we moved into this house February 1, 1999...i cant believe i have lived here so long...its the longest i have lived anywhere...i wish i had some old pictures on my computer to share what it looked like..it went from a little shack looking thing, to a beautiful home..it took a long time to get it there, and its still not done, but its better then it was...

When i first moved here, it was Denny, Michael and I...it was a 1 bedroom house, with a nice size living room and kitchen area....it was a mess! but i loved it, it was ours...no renting, just ours...i was so freakin proud of it, even though we were cramped, and cluttered...i remember when we started to redo the inside, we tore out a wall, to find old newspaper for insulation! no wonder it was soooo hot in the summer..lol...its crazy how time flies..

so many things have happened here,and so many things have changed..im not even sure where to start...ive had 3 babies since moving here...the house itself has grown...I got married, and eventually divorced living here...we had parties, and and friends walk in and out of these doors...ive seen my kids grow and learn here...ive shed blood, sweat and tears to make this house a home...

there is so much more i could say...there are alot of bad memories with the good...waiting up at night wondering when my (ex) husband was finally gonna come home...sick babies...broken hearts, 5 of them...

but through this house is also the ability to move on...to make something of ourselves...its too small for all of us...we are cramped and crank when we are home..but it could be worse...its ours, and thats all that matters...

i love the old memories, but i am looking foreward to the new ones as well...
