Tribute to the great state of Idaho and Dr. Marvasti

It was two years ago today that we left to move to Idaho. So much has changed since then. I very vividly remember driving with B. and E. 1500 miles across the country in 3 days in our lovely pathfinder stuffed full of possessions, toys and the very wonderful portable DVD player. It was very sad and exciting at the same time. I also remember driving into Nampa for the first time (when I interviewed it was dark when we came to town) thinking, hmmm......very interesting. I remember seeing our house for the first time in real life, meeting all the neighbors who let us in the house with a key from the previous owners and being very excited that I didn't have to live in a "box" anymore. And then of course I met all you lovely people at Saltzer. And as much crap as I gave you all about the state of Idaho, I just want to say that I miss you all very much and I truly do hold fondly in my heart the great state of Idaho. And now as tribute to the great Dr. J. Marvasti. She is truly a lovely person and I am saddened that we are separated.....I think about you often!
Now back to reality. I am now officially on "vacation". Actually I have traded one job that I usually do during the day for another (stay-at-home mom) this week. I am going to try to unpack some more (yes....we've lived in our house for six months and I'm not done unpacking), take the girls on some day trips and just try to relax. We'll see how that works. Have a lovely day and enjoy my Idaho pictures.

Well just as soon as I started posting on that site on AOL, I am getting rid of it and moving on to bigger and better things. Actually, someday, I hope never to have to use dial-up again. And when that happens AOL will be a thing of the past. So it seems a little silly to spend a lot of effort on a site that hopefully will not exist in the near future. My hope is that by coming here we can stay in touch a little more...we'll see how good I am at updating this =). When you make one of these things you have to come up with a name. I've seen so many profound names when I read blogs that I am sure have lots of meaning behind them. I on the otherhand could not think of anything. So as I was staring off into space trying to think of something I noticed once again what a lovely shade of green my office walls are....and there you have it...Sitting in my green room. The pictures of the day are of my lovely E. having "tea" on the deck. I think she is the cutest little thing. If you visit here, please leave a comment, at least a hello so I don't feel like I'm talking to no one!
