Christmas Lists

The kids have been reading all the new toy catalogs that seem to magically appear in our mailbox around this time of year.  Currently, they are carrying around one that is just brimming with toys they must have.

Connor really really really wants Dance Star Mickey:

 Fisher-Price Dance Star Mickey

He comes with a price tag of $60.  I've tried explaining to Connor that we already have Mickey Hot Dog Dancer:

Fisher-Price Mickey Hot Dog Dancer

but I was told that he only sings "Hot Dog, Hot Dog, Hot Diggity Dog", therefore he is not good enough anymore.

Connor also wants a new Buzz.  I reminded him that he got Buzz for his birthday and barely ever plays with him.  He responded with, "I play with him every day, just not today."

Keira loves Dora.  She saw the ultimate Dora house for a grand total of $70.  Furniture, dolls, and accessories come separatly at $6 or $10 a pop.  She told me that Nana is buying it for her.  I said, "Sounds good to me!"

She also said that she wants a Princess Belle Doll.  However, she refers to both Tinkerbell and Belle of Beauty and the Beast as Belle, so I don't know which one she wants.

Colin has the best list of all.  Out of the entire catalog, he chose....

110cc Four Wheelers 6" Tires Atvs, Black

Dance Star Mickey is looking pretty good right about now.

Sorry, but I am. That's the nice thing here, Ethan doesn't get exposed to all the ads. He wants a T-Rex. He got one last year, but now needs the Toy Story T-rex so his other T-Rex doesn't get lonely. Or a triceratops!

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 …
