Home is Where...?

Lately I've been traveling a lot for work, well I don't know if I'd say a lot...Two weeks ago I went to Kennewick for a week and I just got back this weekend from another week in Salt Lake City. Never in my life have I been so happy to JUST BE HOME. Don't get me wrong, I do love hotel rooms, dinners out, and traveling and sightseeing, but it's just not the same without someone. Espeicially someone like Dal. But I'm home now, not sure when or if I'll leave again, but I'm home for now.

Which leads me to my next thought. I am seriously losing touch with some of my AZ roots, which is so dang depressing. While I was in Salt Lake, it was a lot hotter than it normally is in Idaho, I'd say probably 85-90 degrees. Anyway I was almost dying, it was to the point where I was getting a little irritated from the heat. I don't think I could've ever said that before! It's a little depressing to me that I have become acclimated to this ridiculously cold, Idaho weather in 5 years. Even one of our good friends who served in Russia has said that Rexburg is colder than Russia hands down. I don't know how true that is but I'll take it. I haven't been home for a good old AZ summer in almost three years, I think it's about time to head back to the valley....

AZ I love you

ok 1) where are you working? it sounds rather exciting 2) I lost my AZ roots a LONG time ago as well when I moved to Rexburg. I know what you mean. But I honestly miss ID so much! so many good memories and so much to do there! Rendon has been there teaching some boy scout gun camp in Jackson, have you seen him?

Ashley- remember that az is a dry heat rather than a humid one... much easier to handle.
