Outside the Office

  • Weekends consists of a minute or two on the couch catching his breath in between chasing his 6 yr old son, Parker, his 4 yr old girl, Juliet and his 3 year old girl, Felicity.
  • Me time (what is that!) would include a Duke basketball game or strapping on the helmet and hitting the many mountain bike trails in Greensboro. A nice, “calm” walk through the Bicentennial Gardens with the 3 kids and two dogs is good for the blood pressure. A few runs of pickup basketball always gets the juices flowing. Lastly, after 20 years in retirement, I’ve joined a few competitive soccer leagues. Running around with 25 yr olds has nearly pushed me back into retirement, but I haven’t given up yet.
  • Friends have dubbed Tim a Yippie because of his concern for the environment (recycle!) and fondness of nature (hiking, biking and even some camping). What is a Yippie you ask? A Yuppie that has Hippie tendencies. Yes, he showers every day, although that is even a struggle as he thinks water is our most important natural resource.
  • My zen (and favorite) moment of the day was when I got to rock my baby girl to sleep every night. Boy do I miss that. Now it is likely my next wood working project. I made my first table over Christmas break and it turned out surprisingly good (meaning my wife doesn’t hate it aesthetically and you can sit and eat on it without it falling over). I consider that a victory. Next up is bunk beds for the kids. Wish me luck! Or perhaps, wish them luck. I won’t be the one sleeping in them.
