An Apology to My Fans

Dear Readers,

I know. I know. Chances are high you've already given up on me. And I apologize. This is the time of year for me when hours blur into days blur into weeks blur into months, and before you know what happened, its May. Also known as Event Season. Just to give you an idea, these are the events I'm currently planning:
  • March 1: Bowl for Kids' Sake Corporate Bowls (we've increased from one 2-hour session to four. FOUR!)
  • March 8: Bowl for Kids' Sake Community Day (this would be a fantastic day to see me - register online at
  • March 15 (I think - its a long story and I don't want to talk about it): Heber City Bowl for Kids' Sake
  • March 29: Saint George Bowl for Kids' Sake (if Shrimpie* is born while I'm in Saint George, I'm going to have an emotional breakdown that my coworkers will not be happy about.)
  • April 12: Ogden Bowl for Kids' Sake
  • May 15: Chef & A Child: A Night of Excellence gala and auction
And I'm going to do my damnedest to successfully fill in the cracks with a Dave, a Mary Kay business, and the training for a half marathon I want to run on April 19. Which doesn't leave a lot of time left over for blogging. Or sanity.

I'll let you know how it all goes sometime towards the end of May. At that time, I will also plan to read your blog so I can figure out what you've been up to for the last five months.

I'll miss you.


*Shrimpie is my un-born nephew who will actually be named Miles Jay. I am dying to meet him!

My Favorite Memory From Jam Cruise 6

We just got home from a grueling day of laying on the beach on Roatan Island, Honduras. And by "home" I mean, cabin 8123 on the Paganini Deck. We all were dying to shower, but our cleaning lady didn't leave us any towels. Dayna opened the door to see if anyone who could help us was in the hallway. They weren't. But Ivan Neville was. He poked his head into our door and said, "Hey ladies, what are you all doing?" I said, "Hi Ivan! We're just relaxing." Dayna told him our woes of the missing towels. He asked us if we thought the beach was as amazing as he did.

Suddenly, Sean Powers popped out of the bathroom. Ivan was caught off guard - he didn't realize there was a dude in our cabin. Sean said, "Hi man, I'm Sean." Ivan said, "I'm Ivan," and excused himself to head up to the pool deck.

Dayna closed the door. She, Rana, and I started freaking out. "Oh my god! Ivan Neville stopped by to chat!"

Sean said, "That was Ivan Neville? And that's how I talked to him?"

A few minutes later, we all went up to the pool deck, and there was Ivan Neville sitting in with Toots & the Maytals. Man I love the Jam Cruise.
