10 Day You Challenge


I'm so tired (emotionally). And unmotivated.  I'd like nothing more than to sit at home, in the sun (because I seriously need to add some more color to these legs), and read my books.  However, it's not going to happen. Probably ever, it seems.  Anyway, my lack of motivation is leading to lack of blogging.  Well that, and the fact that I'm doing overtime because I so swamped at work.  July's staycation turned into a quarrantine as we were all felled by the stomach flu.  I could go on, but I'm working on my PMA.

When I found this challenge on a couple other blogs I read, I thought it might be fun.  And would give me an excuse to blog a little more.

Ten Secrets About Me

  1. I could eat McDonald's every day and not gain weight.
  2. I never ever (ever) wanted twins because I knew they'd be a lot of work.  And I was right. ;)
  3. I've only been drunk once in my life.
  4. I'm really good at being fake.  So people that I can't stand will never know that I can't stand them because I totally act like I like them.
  5. If I could go back and do college over again, I'd major in English.
  6. I think people who run marathons and do triathlons are crazy to put themselves through that much training. {Although I'm married to one of those people and super-proud of him.... ;) And I've got so much respect/awe for Nicole!}
  7. My dad lied to a used-cars salesman to get a cheaper deal on my p.o.s. car I had in college.  He told them I walked with a limp.  So I did when we went to go get the car.
  8. I cheated on boyfriend C with boyfriend N for two weeks.  And never felt guilty about it.
  9. If I was the type to throw caution to the wind, #9 would be that one time I did that one thing in a movie theater. But I'm not. So I don't know what you are talking about.
  10. I teared up when Q101 went off the air because it was the end of an era.  That station played the soundtrack of my youth, and while I love what my future became, it's always sad to say goodbye to an old friend.

I love McD's. I eat fries 4 days a week...thank goodness I run, or I'd be huge.
I like this list...I laughed out loud about the car/limp one! That's hilarious :)

As soon as am settled and not couch surfing, I shall have to try this. although I won't be sharing #9, despite the fact that I may have that in common. May have.

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 …
