I know my family and some of my friends read this blog to stay updated on me, so here are some things I’m doing and what I will be doing.
FAMILY: Both of my nieces visited my wife and I (from Massachusetts) over the last month or two. The 20–year old stayed for one week, but the 18–year old stayed for an additional three weeks. We loved having them both. I’m so proud of my sister (who I constantly like to tease) and her husband for raising such wonderful girls. We love having them.
Also, my parents are visiting next week. I’m really excited about spending time with both of them. My dad recently retired. So we’re glad he can visit us and not have to rush back to work after.
TRIPS: Last week we went to the US National Whitewater Center. It’s only 30 minutes from home and we got to do whitewater rafting and a 1,000 foot zip line.
Sandy and I are especially looking forward to spending two weeks in Europe in July/August. We will be visiting Austria and Greece.
WORK: Work is going well. The economy does not seem to be affecting our industry. Since January I have only been working 4 to 4–1/2 days per week. It’s been my goal for a long time. I finally got there.
