Here it is late on Saturday evening again. This time of the week comes all too fast. I hate to go to bed because I know I will have to wake up and it will be Sunday (not that I dislike Sundays, but it means another week starts). I don't think I dreaded Sunday quite as much when church started later in the day (we have 9:00 church which is so hard to get to with teenage children). Families with small children think that it is hard to get to church, wait until they have teenagers that aren't going to move any faster than they want to. A teenage daughter is not going out the door until she is completely ready, even if it means arriving 30 minutes late! I love my children dearly, but I can see where some things will be much easier when they are out on their own.
I didn't get to go hiking today. It was really too hot to go, but I still felt disappointed. Jordan, Jonathan and I went to the indoor city swimming pool to get out of the house for a few hours. It was my first time there. It is really nice. It was fun to swim and not be out in the blaring sun. We all had a good time.
Jordan had a birthday party to attend tonight, so Sherrie and I took Sarah, Jonathan and Britney to dinner at the Chinese Buffet. Everybody seemed to enjoy it but me. For some reason, it didn't set well with me and it left me with an upset stomach. So Jonathan and I came home and watched a movie (The Bourne Ultimatum). I felt a little better by the end of the movie, but even now I still don't feel well.
The time keeps ticking by and I keep postponing going to bed... Tomorrow morning is going to arrive much to early!
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
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.
