I thought I should update my profile. I just moved to Utah back in August of 2013. I moved here to be more involved with my children's lives. As it turns out I now have my two younger with me full time. It has been a big change with my new position, moving, more family responsibilities but it's been great and they are lots of fun. Last weekend we hiked up behind the house in search of shell fossils. I've always have been warned about the teenage years, I'm not sure what that's all about, I don't have any issues. Although at it would be nice, I'm not looking for someone to help me with my children. The days are long being a full time father and mother, but it's rewarding and I'm glad I'm able to help them on a daily bases. They are 15 year old girl and 13 year old boy. Both looking forward to shreading the mountain as they call it this winter.
Few of the women I've met here in Utah run once they know I have my two children full time. Not sure what that is all about either. This subject has come up with my kids, and my boy started to get a little defensive. I told him that even if she is Christy Brinkley I wont give up on them. "Hey Dad, who is that?"
My children range from 19 to 13, two oldest graduated from high school 2012 and basically on their own now. Dad is well pleased. I'm crossing my fingers.
I am the oldest boy of eleven, and yes I still wear the green number 4 jersey and play tackle football every thanksgiving and Christmas (Family tradition), however, I've been told by my nephews its time to hang up the cleats. The touch down to interception ratio is decreasing, at least that is what they tell me.
I do have a strong testimony of the gospel, and the love of the Savoir. I have several experiences of which I consider sacred, and will only share at another time.
I am a bit old fashion, I'm a one woman man. All though I've been bumped and bruised a bit with divorce, I do feel I can love again and completely heal, and treat the woman of my dreams a queen. It's been over three years, I think it's time.
In college, my nickname, was the piano man. (Bonus if you can figure why)
I saw first light in Bountiful, Utah. I learned how to work at a very young age, started milking cows at 5. Milked two cows morning and night at 7 by myself until my parents moved from Utah to Missouri when I was 12. I earned money working for local farmers in my grade school years. My parents had an orchard living in West Bountiful, in the summers we were always very busy working.
We had friends in Rigby Idaho where we traded spuds for peaches. I think that's when I fell in love with Idaho, and didn't act on that until 2005.
Im currently an Lead Electrical Engineer for a engineering firm here in Salt Lake. I've been an engineer for 23 years now. I don't have any ties to Tooele, it's just what I chose for now. What I have learned from my parents both spiritually and physically has paid off. I am close with my mother, and call her regularly. My parents Have been married for 53 years now.
Well enough of that, blah, blah.
I'm willing to try anything as long as it falls within my standards. Love doing things with my children. Tend to be a risk taker but lately I've noticed my decisions are more conservative. I love all season sports, winter (BTW will do all the shoveling) before I go snowboarding and sledding. Summer, mow and trim, weed, grow, water, before I go dirt biking. Fall, gather up all the leaves and burn, before I go hunting. I prefer my partner go with me to do these things but is not necessary.
If you gone this far, go ahead press the message button, I would love to here from you. Texting and calling with phones is how I communicate. Chat, tweet, face book, Skype, i don't do.
Take care and Thank you for Checking me out. Have a great day.
