My husbands hobby-i'll call it-is reading. Uela's interpretation of date night is going to Barnes & Noble and walking down those long, quiet aisles in search of a good read that usually consumes my every waking moment. So, I blame my husband...for the pile of laundry growing in my bedroom, for the collection of dust that can earn its own spot in the Guinness Book of World Records and for neglecting my child the last few weeks.

Uela came home with it one day and I didn't want to put it down. It soon became one of my favorite books. Driven the Autobiography of Larry H. Miller. In all my years of living in Utah, I've never taken a real interest in anything he has done. No, not even the Jazz-I know I'm pretty pathetic. As I read this book, I realized I'd had almost no idea of the breadth of his influence. His story is fascinating and compelling, to say the least. Many times in the middle of the night, I had to wipe away tears. To learn of his experiences and about his heart of gold, was so moving and inspiring. What a wonderful legacy he has left. So glad I had the opportunity to learn about his life. Wonderfully written!

Other good reads...Hunger Games is awesome! Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is also a series but more for adults.

Happy Reading

I know, I's like the second, ok maybe third time I've gone MIA and then like magic, re-appeared in the blog scene. I'm like the stretch mark that fades away-so you think-and then returns in full force. You can never get rid of me. The fact is, I'm terrible at keeping up with my blog-among other things-but I love to write and I absolutely love going back and reflecting on past experiences. So, here I am again, making yet another attempt to document my way of life on blogger. So much has happened since 2010 mother's day (date of my last post) steps! :) I won't torture you with lengthy, mind-numbing accounts of my life within the past year cause truth is, I don't want to end up on the list of the world's most chronically boring bloggers. And if I hate reading more than 2 paragraphs of someones blog, I'm sure you do to. All I have to say is, I have much to be grateful for. Welcome to

"My Sweet Disposition!"

And because posts are so much better with a picture, here is my little surfer girl. Mother's Day 2011 in Hawaii!
