Aloha Friday

Friday, April 9, 2010

Greetings bloggy friends! Welcome to this edition of Aloha Friday, one of my favorite memes. Let's get right down to business shall we?

My question this week: Can you go home again? Do your parents still live in the house you grew up in?

Mine do not. I actually don't live far from where I grew up and our old house is still there, but my parents sold it when I was in high school. My husband's mother lives in the house he grew up in and we visit often. I know it means a lot to him to be able to go back, even if it's not the same as it used to be. Life does go on...
There are times when I really wish I could visit my old home and show my kids where I slept and played and opened Christmas presents. What about you? Can you go home again?

We grew up between Athens, Greece and Helsinki, Finland so no :(
I still - after 20+ yrs - have dreams about our home in Finland, how emotional it would be to visit, but I have not had a chance to do that. Yet.. How lucky you and your husband are.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Found you through MBC and now following your blog!

I am becoming a mother soon, and would love any advice other moms have who have already experienced what I am currently experiencing. I would love to hear from you! :)

Have a great Friday!

My Dad died about 16 years ago. But my Mom still lives in the same house I grew up in! My divorced sister actually lives with her too.

So I can still go to the same house. It will be sad someday when we probably will have to sell it though.

My parents live in the house I lived in when I was in high school. We moved when I was 16 so I only live their a couple years. It is home but not really the home I remember growing up in.

No, I grew up in a military family so we moved every few years. My parents are retired in Texas now.

I come from a huge family. Oldest of 8 and it seems we we're out growing our house every year so we moved a bit so it would be hard to nail down "what I house I grew up in" but tn where are two houses that come to mind.

One in VA that we built and then sold and moved to MD 6 years later (age 16) and then the house I lived in when I met my husband and moved out on my own. BUT my parents don't live there any more either!

I actually am currently "back home" with my parents again (and my toddler) because my husband is on an extended business trip (deet on my blog)

So I guess in short I can go back home again, I guess. Maybe. Sorta. I dunno

No...actually we have just bought a house in November that has a "mother-in-law" house so my mom came to be here with us. She hadn't lived in the place where I grew up for many years though. But were all here together and nothing could be better than that. :)
