I was looking back through pictures on Picasa this morning and came across the pictures used to advertise the house we sold in Eugene, Oregon when we moved to Tooele. This was somewhat bittersweet for me. I poured a lot of my soul into that house. It was in terrible condition when we purchased it and we essentially redid it inside and out. It was very different from all the other houses we've ever owned. It was a big, cedar, modern-style home set on a 1/3 acre of old growth forest. The yard had no grass but was beautiful with all the natural vegetation. When we sold the house (finally after months of waiting), a large tree fell on the house the day of closing, as if to stop us from going. It think it appreciated the fact the somebody had loved it enough to make it a beautiful place to live. Well, it only succeeded in stalling the closing for a week while repairs were completed. I hope the new owners appreciate all the blood, sweat and tears that went into making it a beautiful abode. I've placed a slideshow with pictures of the house on my blogspot...

I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
