Christmas Lists #2

My sister wants to know what I want for Christmas.  I hadn't put a lot of thought into it this year, since Keith and I decided we weren't going to exchange gifts this time.  We gave each other the gift of a new sewer line and a large clump of dirt, gravel and clay pipe in our front yard. ;)

Unfortunately the things I do want - grey boots, new jeans, chunky turquoise ring - are all things that I have to specifically pick out and try on.  I'd love to ask for gift cards, but then I also need to ask for a babysitter to watch the kids so that I can actually leave the house.  And if I am asking for a babysitter, I'd also like to throw on a housekeeper as well. 

 As I started thinking of what I wanted, I turned to my amazon wish lists for ideas.  Then I had to scrap that idea because then all I would be getting is books for Christmas.  Oh wait! That would actually be perfect.  Although then I would need that babysitter again to watch the kids while I read all day.......  Ideally I'd like a giftcard for Amazon to get books for my kindle, but I don't know if they have that.

But in the spirit of fun and wishful thinking, here is my wish list if money wasn't an option:


Also, these would be nice. 
True Blood: The Complete Second Season (HBO Series)
Season Two

The Heart of Faerie Oracle

Ok, enough about me! Now I need to get back to figuring out what the kids are getting from Santa this year!

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 …
