I'm still a celebrity. And apparently kind of old too.

At the college where I work, I am not known by my job title.  Rather, I am refered to as "the one who had the twins".  Now my cute little twins will be two later this month - so why can't people learn my name?  Whatever.

The reason I bring it up is because yesterday at the dentist (it's a new dentist - only been there once before), the dental assistant and I were chatting while waiting.  She said to me, "So you are the one with the twins, right?" I'm guessing it was a note in my chart, because she also knew about Connor, and that I worked...

Now I didn't know that having twins was that big of a deal anymore.  Celine, Angelina, Jenny from the block - they all have twins, it's kind of the "thing to do" now.  Plus I belong to the local twins' club, and there are more than 250+ members!  So I can't be the only client with twins at this particular dentist office, can I?

Anyway, she asked me if it was harder to have two babies rather than one, and what it was like during the first year.  Turns out, her hubby doesn't want kids, but he told her they could have one someday, when they can afford it.  So she is hoping for twins.  Hmmm.....

But then she said the best part - "But I don't want to wait much longer.  I don't want to be OLD - like 30 - when I have kids."

Um, I'm 32.  Apparently they didn't list my age in her chart

I don't know what was worse - having two cavities for the first time since high school or being told I am old.

Oh dear! What I kept hearing when I was pregnant with twins was, "So, when are you taking a job on the 15th floor?" I work on the 25th floor of our building, but there were no less than THREE moms of twins working on 15 (out of a total 5 women). There's a dad of twins in the building across the street. Thus far, my twins are still the youngest in the IT community at my university.

That is too funny!

I get "the one who had twins" ALL the time. How funny is it that someone actually asked if it was harder with 2!?! Did she think you would say it was EASIER! hehehe

Anyway ~ I'm 33 with 9 month old twins. When I found out I was having twins the OB told me that it made my pregnancy more like I was 35 instead of 32...and therefore high risk. I never understood why he couldn't just say it was because of twins and had to bring my age into it.

On the bright side, you probably don't look 32...so she didn't even think about it! :) It's kind of a compliment, I guess. :)

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.

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 …
