The Monday holiday has left me date-confused all day long. Given that I get confused rather easily it is no great surprise. But now that I understand tomorrow is Wednesday I am happy because the work week will be half over. It isn't that I don't like going to work. I actually do enjoy my work and really like the company that employees me. It is just that I have so much to do that I feel I need more weekends or just a week off to get caught up. It enjoyed the trip to the cabin this past weekend, but that left me with another weekend that home fixup projects were at a stand still. I have tried to get motivated to work on the staircase during the week. But by the time I get all my gardens watered and the laundry done and the dishes washed, there really just isn't much time left over. Tonight I even debated on whether I would blog or just go finish my book. I usually finish a book in a few days. I have been nibbling at this one for several weeks. If I don't finish it soon, I won't remember how it started! (I am reading the Camel Club - which is a good book, especially for the conspiracy theorists.) I guess since I have fueled the cars, checked the oil in the van, visited the ATM for lunch money and blogged for a few minutes I can now retire to bed and hopefully finish my book. At least that will be something off the list of projects to complete.
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.
