Weekend Re-cap

Yesterday, Keith took the kids to his parents' house for about an hour and a half.  This was after our early morning trip to Urgent Care for Colin (pink eye, viral rash-thing due to always being sick).  Anyway, that 90 minutes allowed me to pick up the house and get it looking pretty nice.  One thing we did was rearrange the living room, in anticipation of putting up the Christmas tree next month.  Keith's next project (at our house) is to build - well it doesn't really have a name.  What we need is a place by the backdoor for the kids to store their coats, winter boots, and backpacks, as well as have a little place on top to put some bins I am getting to keep their school paperwork in.  It's going to be like a bench, but with cubbies underneath for the boots, and hooks behind the bench for coats.  So I hope he can have that done soon - as soon as I decide if I want it painted or stained, the dimensions, and such. 

Last night, after dinner, the living room was surprisingly still clean.  Connor looked around and said, "Should we keep it like this or get all our toys out?"  Guess what my answer was??? ;)

Keira is all about her babies lately.  She has a few different dolls that she takes care of.  She feeds them, puts them to nap, and changes their diapers.  Although, she insists on using her own diapers for her baby dolls.  This would be fine, but her dolls seem to have some stomach issues, because they poop all the time.  She gets the box of baby wipes (when we forget to hide it from her), uses about 5-10 wipes on her doll, puts a brand new diaper on the baby, then throws out the old diaper.  The perfectly good and still usuable on a human diaper because the only one who pooped in it was a doll that doesn't really do that sort of thing.

Colin is still working with his separation issues that he gets every time he has been in the hospital.  Which means, I cannot leave his side. Until this morning.  We were at my parents' house.  I told him I had to leave for work. He came over and hugged me and was getting sad.  I said, "It's ok, Bumpa (my dad) is here for you."  Colin literally pushed me out of his way to run to Bumpa. Well then, crisis averted.

Love the hook/cubby/bench idea!

Would Kiera not want to be eco friendly and make her dolls a cloth nappy?

That's the plan Tima! I'm getting her a couple of cloth ones, just need to find some small ones that will fit a doll! :)

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 …
