    I am not living the life I dreamed of as a kid, my life now is better then I could have ever dreamed!!  Of course there are still things I'd like to do and goals to work towards, and I am. Being a SAHM has actually enabled me to reach more goals then I could have working outside the home.  I really do think that finding joy in whatever situation you are in is the key to fulfilling life. Regrets aren't good for our souls, they just drag us down and instead of looking forward, we are always looking to the past. It's not healthy! If we are looking at the past, we are going to miss what is going on right in front of our noses! 

    And you New Yorkers are hysterical!! Idaho girl here and I can tell you from experience that log cabins are awesome! DH and I actually went camping (without the kids) for our 7th wedding anniversary. It was so much fun!

    they are an ex for a reason.
