What has become of me?

Sorry for the lack of blogging this week. I have been working 12 hour days (no exaggeration), but don't even feel slightly sorry for me, save those feelings for Patrick and my kids. But, today, I am home being a mom, wife and homemaker and LOVING it.  Where I should be.

We have lived in Idaho for 5 years now and I don't feel like an Idahoan.  I still feel like an Arizonian, yet, when I read this, I realized I'm more Idaho than I thought.  Oh dear!  Perhaps I have overcome my commitment issues...

If you Laugh at this post, You live in Idaho!
