So I just finished this book, Do-Over!, by Robin Hemley that is all about doing over parts of your life that didn’t go so well the first time around. The book got me to thinking about my childhood home as one of the “do overs” in the book was the author going back to live in one of the houses he grew up in.
I would LOVE to revisit my childhood home! I don’t live that far from it now, and I know it is still there because I’ve driven past it a few times just to see what it looked like. This is the house that I still dream about and spent the most time living in during my childhood. I told Mr. Jenners that I was thinking about writing to the current owners and asking them if I could stop by and visit the house. Mr. Jenners thought I was NUTS and said “You just don’t do that. The people could be psychos, and if I was asked that, I would say no.”
So, just out of curiosity, I wanted to get your opinions on this topic.
Would you let someone who used to live in your house come back to “visit” it?
Would you think someone asking to do this is nuts?
Is there a house that you used to live in that you wish you could visit again?
Have you ever visited a place you grew up after you moved away and other people lived there?
