Fertile is the saint's heart who makes new friends everyday. I just made that up hoping that it might intrigue someone to check out my profile.
Are you ready for 2014? Why not!
2013 was one heck of a growing/groaning year for me.
I will complete one year of retirement in February. What a struggle and adjustment. But most amazing of all, I made it financially on half of a Utah public school teacher's retirement income. My wife of 32 years gets the other half.
I like to write but dislike to bore. I wonder how much of an outline of my wonderful children would fit on here? Let's try it. How I write about my kids will tell you a lot about me.
-Wife is named Bonnie.
-Has a three year old with a tracheotomy, Lincoln
-Lives in a rich man’s house just 2 miles from me.
-Works for Worldmart selling vacations/time shares
-Bonnie works there as a receptionist and 1st contact and some months matches his income.
-Bonnie is 9 years younger than he is and they deceived us about her age to begin with.
-pay tithing but do not attend regularly because of work and trache.
-thrill addict: snowboarding, dirt bikes, jeeps etc.
-loved soccer in HS
-got most stitches
-shyest about his birthday
-so generous but tough time receiving/accepting gifts
-played more instruments
-loves self-help books but is embarrassed to call them that! Convinced me to read Andy Andrews (author) last month and I’m done. Fantastic reads!
-bought Kathy/mom a new glass-top stove ~ 8years ago which I inherited. So nice and easy to wash off!
-have organized a 5K charity run for Lincoln in January ‘14
-likes to have the best of everything.
-big screens, house, jeep, 4x4 pickup truck, black Honda car, grill, wedding ring (2 carat plus 20 smaller) gun cabinet, tax accountant, gold iphone 5S, etc.
-Keeps income in cash and pays tithing in cash.
-allowed me to be person 4 on his ATT cell phone plan. No data for me. $10/month again!
-offered me 3 pair of size 12 dress shoes and passes scores of T-shirst and pants/shorts along.
-anticipating foreclosure on house in Eagle Mountain
-worked in SLC and Angels Landing CA at the door to Sequoia National park before came here for Lincoln’s birth.
-Lincoln’s throat/vocal cord damage is partially due to inept nurse. Parents have the sweetest attitude about caring for their son. For the first year they did it without any outside nursing support at home. Stayed up all night.
-I joked with Louis 12-1-13 about a millionaire collecting empty egg cartons for his nurse’s chicken eggs. Like to keep her happy, he said. I had saved him 5.
-Lincoln has more allergies than you can count. Luckily with today’s blood IgG testing they have been identified.
-Louis has no food allergies, only outdoor ones, but he loves the outdoors. Bonnie has lots of allergies too.
-Can't wait to have another child
+ Saint George
-emotionally damaged. Depression, PTSD, anxiety.
-was most obedient child to begin with.
-has a beautiful 6’2” blonde girlfriend of 4+ years. Emotionally damaged as well. Both are working 2 jobs and doing therapy twice a week.
-our computer guru.
+ Saint George
-moved out in June. Had 2 druggies for roomies!
-feels so accomplished living on his own
-likes to be an authority-researches things, mulls problems over and over and finds interesting solutions
-Endowed in November. Says he got an answer to an unspoken prayer. Am I ready for marriage? Ans. Yes.
-Was married 12-7-13 (sealed, temple)
-6’3” mother in law passed away 12-15-13
-Wedding dress and wedding ring both needed adjustments. Only 5 days and worried they might not be done. Made it.
-I am glad it is not another expensive daughter to marry. $1000 for the luncheon and I am covered. Relief.
-Robert gets all enthused about the rightness of something, convinces me, and then changes his mind! Recycling metal cans was his last one. The best vacuum on the market and best cell phone plans are others. He offered to fast and pray for me to go to therapy in ‘98~99 after a year of reasoning with me. I went.
-Amber does custodial work at night and Petsmart in the day
-Robert is schooling, working nights at Caption Call
-He is the driving force behind many pickle ball, and frisbee golf games.
-He has more dedication and endurance than I can imagine when he puts his mind to something.
