Starting the day off right...


This is Colin the other night at dinner.  (Sorry it's blurry.) The twins like to pretend they are sleeping at the dinner table, usually while they are eating.  (I've mentioned before my kids are weird.)

Colin had been wearing his cousin's blue fairy slippers (don't ask), so he took them off and put them on the table, and pretend to sleep.  If he wasn't grinning, it would be hard to tell he was faking it.

I'm playing along with Leigh today.

Speaking of Colin, he has developed an obsession with his pajama shirt.  If he wakes up in it, it is hell trying to get it off.  This made for some crabby mornings at 6 a.m. when I was trying to get the kids dressed for school. 

Did you know that my children only want Mommy to get them dressed? Change their diapers? Put their shoes on? Put their coats on?  While Daddy gets to stand around and do, well, nothing.

Anyway, I started putting Colin's shirt that he would wear to school on him the night before.  Voila! He is happy in the morning.  Well until I try to put his shoes on...

That's so cute. My cousin's son likes to play sleep statues, where you yawn, then freeze in a sleeping pose!

cute! We used to have problems with pajamas during the day...my daughter would wake up and want to wear her pajama top all day...which was fine with me until she hit school...so then I had to adopt a different way of thinking...I would have he take her bath at night, and then before bed would have her put on the shirt she wanted to wear the next day....we did have a few instances where the pajama top made it to school...but overall it worked out really good!
My kids do this too. So cute.

Cute! My girls are the same way about always wanting Mommy to help. One day I actually said something along the lines of "Daddy is right there. Ask him to help!"

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.

Book Review: Sweet Tea and Spirits

Book: Sweet Tea and Spirits Author: Angie Fox Verity Long and her ghostly sidekick, Frankie, are on track for another adventure! The book starts out with Verity receiving a mysterious call from the Sugarland Historical Society, stating there was a murder. But how can there be a murder when no body is found? She enlists Frankie's help to investigate, which leads to a humorous and engaging story! The book is well-written, like the others in this series.  I enjoy reading cozy-mysteries, especially those that focus on the paranormal.  The author does a great job of creating funny characters with depth.  I definitely recommend this series, and do feel that the reader should start at book one. *I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Two Years

I wanted to write a moving and inspirational post about celebrating my two-year post-transplant milestone. (I also wanted to post a nice family picture, where everyone was looking at the camera, the twins did not have to be separated because they were hitting each other, the shorter boy on the right was not squeezing his brother's stomach too tightly, and I did not have a glowing bulb of sunlight shining brightly on my lady parts, but well... you know... that's life.) Instead I will share one of my favorite pictures of this day. We had wanted to do an outdoor autumn photo shoot with my family (grandparents included). It was scheduled for the end of September in Chicago. So of course, I bought (matching) long-sleeved shirts for the boys, had a pretty (color-coordinating) sweater picked out for my girl, Keith was going to wear his grey pullover, and I lovingly pulled out my tights and boots for what I thought was going to be a cool and beautiful fall day. It was 88 degrees
