Entry for June 18, 2006

Sorry it's been so long since the last post. I'm tryin to decide if I really want to work this section of my blog at all. I simply am having problems bringin myself to write in it and I havent even got to the point I was meaning to deal with anyhow. I just seem to have a total lack of ambition to work on it....kinda like working on that wedding dress I need to do.
The house on West Second Street was the next house we were in. We lived there for several years..until 1990. Well my folks and bro lived there til '90, I moved in 1989. What a damn mistake that was....and yes this comment is indeed foreshadowing. This house was a one story grey house with a screened in front porch and an eagle up in the peak. There was a small backyard with a pine tree smack dead center of it and another smaller one on the back corner on the property line. There was a fence on 2 sides of the yard....one was a privacy fence that the one neighbor had up and the other was a simple chain link one. We had a shed in the back for us to keep our bikes and the lawn equipment.
The front porch was long and narrow. There were two windows looking in from the porch to the house...one in the livingroom and one in the front bedroom. This leads me to believe that the porch was a later addition to the house. Otherwise the builders were totally whacked. Technically, in this age that house would be considered a 1-2 bedroom, but there were actually spaces for 3 bedrooms. The front door went right into the livingroom and if you looked to the left there was the smallest of the 3 bedrooms. To say the room was small is an understatement as it only had room for the twin bed and a free standing closet. The only time I could fit my dresser in there was in the winter when I placed it infront of the window to help keep the drafts out. The livingroom was midsized and had dark panelling up on the walls. There was an archway that led from the livingroom to the familyroom. Technically I believe it was meant to be a diningroom as there was this hanging chandelier and fancy texturized walls. On the left were 2 doors.....the first went to what was my brother's room (it had light colored panelling and a Winnie the Pooh mural on the accent wall) and the other one went to my folks room. Their room was the mid-sized room compared to mine and my brother's and was the only one with an actual closet in it. There was a built in closet in the family room for our coats n stuff. Just past the familyroom was the kitchen with the bathroom off to the left. The side door to the house entered at the kitchen on the right hand side. The third door in the kitchen led down to a landing which led you to either the basement or the backyard depending on which direction you went. We had the washer and dryer in the basement, as well as the waterheater and furnace. We also had a free-standing freezer in the basement to store extra food mom cooked. Father in was daddy's work area......and no one went back there but daddy and sometimes mommy.

Thanks! That one Im wearing was used for a minimum of 3 Halloweens. The first Halloween it was a mouse. I think the pic is the first reincarnation of it...I was a lion. A year or two later it was reborn into a panda costume. I prolly coulda squeezed one more use out of it if I really tried. Oh wait we did...it had to wait til bro was bigger...it became a "Super Nerd" costume...LOL!!
