Not related to finances in any way...

I grew up in two homes - one in west Mesa from the age of 0 to 15, and the 2nd one in east Mesa from the age of 16 to whenever I moved out as an adult.

I drove by the first one yesterday and found this:


Apparently it burned down just Saturday morning (today is Tuesday) and they're not sure why. It was sad to see my childhood home in such a mess (and so incredibly ugly too - it was MUCH cuter when we lived there - thanks Mom and Dad for keeping our homes so nice).

Anyway, I keep looking at this picture, remembering where certain rooms were, where my piano sat, where the kitchen window was located - totally going down amnesia lane. Lots of good memories were made there and I guess in the end, that's all we really need anyway.

How crazy is that? I don't know how I would react if I discovered that my childhood home had burned down! Of course I spent my entire life up until I was 21 in the house, so it may be a little different from you. Where is this house located?

Boo hoo! That's all I have to say about this. It makes me sad each time I pass it.

Tara that is so sad to see your house burned down. I bet that is so hard to see. I remeber family gatherings there.
