This & That

  • My facebook status last night read: "went to check on Colin who was fussing in his crib. Then went to cover up Keira & noticed she was naked."
  • In my head, I'm already preparing for Hallowe'en. It's the best time of the year.  I had a credit for Amazon that I used towards this book:
The Book of Hallowe'en
                                                                  I can't wait to read it.

  • Our plan was to go to the zoo this weekend, with my sister, my niece and my parents, but due to this stomach bug that is making it's rounds, I'm not too sure.
  • Connor seems to be better at school, at least he was yesterday.  However, he told me he can't brush his teeth there because he doesn't like it.
  • In my head, I've convinced myself I am getting sick, but I think it's just the anxiety talking.
  • I treated myself to some new corduroys from Old Navy this weekend.  Most of my work pants are too big now.  I also splurged and used up the rest of LAST year's birthday cash and bought a pretty purple sweater:
  • Speaking of birthdays, Keira loves singing "Happy Daddy" (her version of the birthday song) to Keith.  Even though his birthday was over a week ago. I had to sneak and take down the decorations over the weekend and they had a fit when they realized they were gone. 
  • Colin's been in speech therapy for a few weeks now, and I've already noticed a big improvement in his vocabulary.  Favorite words are: mine, me, no, and mine.
  • Keira has learned a new phrase: DON'T TOUCH!  (said with lots of enthusiasm).  She will put a toy down, tell Colin "DON'T TOUCH, then walk away.  Colin, who will be the death of me, will walk over, very sneaky like, and pretend like he is going to touch it, just to hear her scream!
  • Connor and Keith built a bug box last week:
       Please excuse the mess. 
Apparently the garage is "Keith's area", and he doesn't care how messy it gets.
Or how long it takes for him to find something because there is no organization whatsoever in there.
It's like a big saw-dust covered black pit.

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 …
