Sarah had a viral infection which she apparently passed on to me. My symptoms were almost exactly the same as hers. Yesterday afternoon I started feeling dizzy and even somewhat confused. I laid down on the couch to wait for it to pass. I then began taking chills and couldn't get warm. I watched So You Think You Can Dance with a heavy blanket wrapped around me. I decided to go to bed early so I loaded up on decongestant, tylenol and vitamin C. About midnight I woke up and was burning up, but I was too weak to get out of bed and into the shower. I passed in and out of sleep until the alarm went off. This morning I feel very tired and my muscles ache. I wonder if it is the "swine" flu. I didn't miss any work and was able to get the balusters painted last night before I started to feel sick. I hope I have more energy the weekend or it will be another Saturday lost with nothing accomplished.
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.
