A weekend of ... happiness???

Now that it's Monday, I can safely post without having to knock on wood that we had one full weekend that was calm, relaxing, and illness-free (almost. Apparently RSV can last like 8+ days. And for the kids who didn't get hospitalized and nebulized because their cases were mild - Keira and Connor - their symptoms seemed to last a lot longer.)

Anyway, I almost said it last night - hey we have had a sick-free weekend, but then I didn't want to jinx anything. And the best part of it all --- both Friday and Saturday night, the kids, and I mean ALL the kids, slept through the night, therefore mommy got to sleep all through the night. (Let's not talk about daddy who went and got his back tattooed on Sat night, therefore sleeping for him wasn't the most pleasant thing! hee hee!) I think the last time all the kids slept through the night was sometime back in December.

I even got to go shopping (ALONE!) and bought myself a cute new lunch tote. I also found some footless leggings for $1.25 at Target so I had to buy those. And when I went to Carter's (I had to - both the boys had growth spurts over the last few weeks and I noticed their pants looked like they were ready for a flood), and with my coupons, I got 4 pairs of jeans for $3.98 each.

We are finally get the house back in order. It got a tad trashed over the past few weeks. I bought some new throw pillows for the family room. Our old ones were cute, but mix two babies with reflux and they ended up being covered in spit-up stains. Our family room looks liveable again, 4 months after the family room remodeling began. The new bathroom is beautiful and Keith finally got our desks set up, so I can start unpacking my office tubs that have been sitting in the crawl space since November. I can't wait to catch up on my scrapbooking.

Now if this feeling of wellness could just last for a few weeks - or say until next winter - I'd be very happy! :-)

Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of pas…

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

I saw …

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.

The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
