Mommy's favorite game

Last weekend, Connor went to Chuck E Cheese for his first time.  A fellow kindergartener was having her birthday there.  Connor had a really good time.  Since he was new to all these types of games, I felt it was my duty as a mother to show him Mommy's favorite game - skee-ball!  He is in the green shirt. He loved it, and can't wait to go back there again.

Side note - I am not the type to just drop off my baby in a strange place, and I am very glad I stayed. Supposedly they stamp your hand so that you cannot leave without a parent whose hand is also stamped the same.  Connor handed the man his LEFT hand to be stamped.  On the way out, the guy barely shined the special flashlight on Connor's RIGHT hand, and then let him leave the building with me.  Not too safe in my opinion.)

Ethan LOVES Chuck e Cheese. Glad Connor had fun (as did Mommy). Not too impressed with their security though
I'm not impressed with the security either. Glad he had fun though.
Looks like a lot of fun!

We've never been to a Chuck E Cheese, but my brother told my poor kids that the place had scary puppets, and now they have nightmares about it. Sounds like you guys had fun!

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.

Book Review: Sweet Tea and Spirits

Book: Sweet Tea and Spirits
Author: Angie Fox

Verity Long and her ghostly sidekick, Frankie, are on track for another adventure! The book starts out with Verity receiving a mysterious call from the Sugarland Historical Society, stating there was a murder. But how can there be a murder when no body is found? She enlists Frankie's help to investigate, which leads to a humorous and engaging story!

The book is well-written, like the others in this series.  I enjoy reading cozy-mysteries, especially those that focus on the paranormal.  The author does a great job of creating funny characters with depth.  I definitely recommend this series, and do feel that the reader should start at book one.

*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
