QOTD 9/9

Do you still live in the same town you grew up in?

We are about an hour from where I grew up and about 10 minutes from where DH grew up.

Yep! I actually only live about a half a mile from the house that I grew up in and that my parents still live in. I really do not think that we will move. I really enjoy where we are.

I am still in the same county but I grew up in an extremely small town of only about 500 people in the northern half of the county. Now I live in the bigger but still very small town that's in the southern part of the county. LOL

I'm about 25 miles from where I grew up and I miss it everyday! Both my sisters still live near our childhood home and I feel so far away sometimes.

I still teach in the same suburb I grew up in, but we live in a different suburb (about 20 min away). We also live about 20 min from where DH grew up. Smile We chose something that was a midpoint. (Also, something that was more affordable, as prices can really vary here based on what school district you're living in. The same size house we live in how would have been $50k more expensive in the town DH's family lives in.)

So I guess the answer is YES, we still live in or near our hometown. All our family is here and we're not going anywhere. (family living within an hour drive... currently - DH - 20 people, Mine - 17 people. More if you count great-aunts, second cousins, etc.) We have never used a babysitter for our kids other than family, except during the day when we work.

I've been here since 81, and DH spent most of his preteen and teen years here, so it is a yes for both of us.

Nope. We are about 5 hours away from my hometown. We move a lot too.
