Back in the Saddle Again

Our News Director Sheryl Worsley and me

So after my hand accident in December I swore off community service for quite some time. (see earlier blog). But today I did something much safer than operating power tools...answering phones for our KSL/Primary Children's Medical Center Radiothon. It's my 7th year volunteering, I've done it every year since I've worked at KSL. Just for a couple hours, but I am always so humbled being there. Not just from the stories of such strong families facing the adversity of their children's health problems but at the generosity of such wonderful people in this state that gladly give of their money to support children's healthcare at the hospital. I even took a pledge for $10,000 from a man that asked to remain anonymous! It is a tremendous amount of work for a lot of my coworkers but over $490,000 was raised!

Everyone hard at work

I've been trying to figure out who Jane reminds me of and tonight it hit me. BOO! From Monster's Inc!

Ummm......yeah. I feel a new nickname coming on!

The Mystery of the Missing Valentine

Brandon and I (even though Easton is pictured) made little handmade Valentine cards this weekend. Last night we made chocolate dipped oreo suckers and decorated them. I was looking for a particular card the other day (all are slightly different) and couldn't find it anywhere! I looked and looked. I figured I accidentally threw it away or something. I thought I was going nuts. Last night I jokingly asked Easton if he needed one of the cards for a cute girl in school. He said "no way" and looked away. A while later, wondering again where the heck this card disappeared to, it hit me. I turned to him and asked again if he needed one of the cards for a 'special valentine'. He said "no" but I stared at him with a smile and he wouldn't make eye contact. "YOU STEALER!" I said, and he quickly blushed, jumped up and ran downstairs laughing. I'm not crazy after all. I don't have any clue who this mystery girl is, but she better like the card!
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! I hope your day was filled with red construction paper and lots of macaroni!
Or better yet with hearts, chocolate, and chocolate hearts!

Happy Chinese New Year!

It's the year of the Rat! According to a note that a Feng Shui master sent to me, "Rat years bring new beginnings and fresh starts. This is the time to begin projects, lay foundations, announce new plans, launch new products, forge new links, get married, buy a house or start a family. This is not the time for complacency. The clever Rat is constantly on the go, with his eye on the big prize. Opportunities abound for quick, smart and ambitious people. Wisely laid plans in the year of the Rat will bring future successes."

Those of you who know me well, know what I've got up my sleeve. And it looks like it's the year for it, doesn't it!
Aside from that, just reading that gets me excited. It gives me extra confidence and motivation that this year has great promise! I hope each and every one of you have a prosperous new year!
