A little history- We(my family) own a house here in Rockville, MD that has been in my mom's family since 1890. We lived here for a good bit of my childhood until I was 12, at which point we moved to Virginia Beach, VA for my dad's job and leased out the Rockville house. It was supposed to be a temporary 1-year assignment. That was 9 years ago. Anyway, the schools in VB are much better than here, and my younger brother was still in high school when my dad was able to return to the Rockville area. My parents decided to let my brother finish high school before returning to this area. My brother graduated HS w/ honors 2 weeks ago. My parents got a contract on the house in VB about a month ago for $30k more than they were asking(gotta love this housing market ). They closed two Fridays ago and we began the move back to MD this past Wednesday. In the meantime the lease on my apartment at school was expiring and I had to go move to my new apartment. So, after 5 consecutive days of loading/unloading furniture, and humping boxes up and down 2 flights of stairs, I can finally say that we're moved! Thank god! I know one thing I don't want to be when I grow up, and that's a mover! Here's a shot of the house we moved back into. Damn it feels good to be back, I missed this house.
