A memory I'm trying to block out...

Part of me cringes at the thought of sharing this story with the world.  The other part feels, hey that's life.

On Sunday, after our church picnic, we headed back to the house to play in our little pool.  Colin is working on life without diapers, so he was in his swim trunks with no pull-up.  They were happy getting wet and playing in the pool.

Colin was standing on the cement patio (pool was in the grass, I was on the deck). He said he had to go potty.  Keith had walked up at that point, and seeing Colin soaking wet, with grass and dirt up and down his legs, said the words that changed our lives forever: Just pee out here.

Before I had time to sigh, I hear Connor say, Great idea Daddy!  In a flash, he is out of the pool and standing in the grass, trunks down, peeing.  At the same time, Colin pees through his swim trunks. On the cement.  Keith tells him to go in the grass, so he does.  Strips his shorts off and pees again.

For some reason (perhaps having something to do with the fact that I feel my children are out to get me), one child cannot be naked without the other two joining in.  Connor sees Colin naked, so he takes off his trunks.  Keira, not to be the only one clothed, strips off her suit. 

Fast forward five minutes - I finally have Connor and Colin back in their trunks. 

Suddenly I hear Keith yell, Keira!  NO!

There is my beautiful (naked) daughter. 

Peeing on the grass.

Needless to say, family fun time in the pool was over. ;)

This is the funniest thing I've read all day. I feel for you!

Sorry, but it's adorable!
Did I ever tell you about my mate's daughter that always pees outside, standing up!

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 …
