Since I’ve Blogged Last

We’ve had a lake day and then our first snow. I will miss the gorgeous days of summer and I’m so grateful they hung on for so long this year. Today, a fire is roaring inside my wood stove. Last week, the sun blazed down on us as we froze our toes in chilly water.

Quite possibly for the last time in 2012.

2012 yielded a grand total of zero fish. But all four of the twins are now experts in casting and reeling. My hopes are very high for 2013.

I was also able to get the shot I’ve wanted for book #2 (scheduled to be released before the snow melts)! If you haven’t read it yet, don’t forget, book #1: 31 Days to Lovely: A Journey of Forgiveness!

It was a very good day. It was a good day, even if I did have to wear the picnic blanket like a sling and carry my three year old a mile back from the lake because he’d completely left his legs in the water. It was a good day even if the fishing lure shaped like a crawdad sorta kinda embeded itself in my hair while I was wearing my three year old in a sling. It was a good day even if my older kids took very seriously my promise about the first one back to the car getting candy and thusly left me to carry the tackle box, cooler, and poles while slinging my three year old legless son.

It was such a good day because it was the very first day in my entire life to date that exposure to afternoon sunshine has not given me one heck of a headache afterward. And it’s because of this lack of a sun headache (of which I’ve been blogging about for years) that I have now joined the ranks of those exclamatory supplement distributors. I know, I know…but no, I just couldn’t resist the temptation to spread the word about something that has changed my life so rapidly. You can e-mail me for more information.

And on that note, go enjoy the sunshine if you’ve still got it–or a roaring fire if you don’t.

  1. Girl, I LOVE Xyngular! I’ve been using it since June. They are absolutely incredible products. I love the way I feel!! Welcome to the family πŸ˜‰


  2. I’ve read here for a couple of years, rarely (if ever, can’t recall) commented. But I have to today to say I’m really disappointed that you’ve decided to sell Xngular. I understand needing to make money for your family. And if this type of sales (pyramid) is helpful well I can understand joining such an organization. But I’m disappointed because this particular organization is selling a product that contain DMAA which is a neurostimulant that has been banned by the US Military and several countries. The FDA is challenging various companies to prove the safety of this drug. These products are not the all natural/healthy products they like to proclaim.
    These products contain laxatives and caffiene, don’t “cure” half (if any) of the diseases/conditions being declared by over zealous distributors.
    I don’t know. Guess I thought you were more discerning, more genuinely caring of people. But to sell products such as these Xyngluar types, well, seems, in my opinion dishonest.
    Obviously its none of my business. And I do understand wanting to secure your financial present and future. Like I said. Just disappointed.
    Thanks for listening.


    1. I’m so sorry you’re disappointed. I’m not a salesperson and probably won’t be very active in promoting these, but I’ve only signed up to sell because they are AMAZING! I am very health conscious, and I do understand there is a questionable ingredient (caffeine isn’t a problem for me). But from what I’ve seen, the ingredient in question is only present in one product. I will absolutely disclose that to anyone who wants to order. But I’ve been taking the minimum dosage (even the max would contain a fairly small amount) and feel better than I have in a long time. No dishonesty there. πŸ™‚


  3. I have been reading your blog for about 6 months. It is alway refreshing to read what you write. I love that you start and end your day in prayer and that you are teaching your children about god and keeping the sabbath day holy, spending time with them when it is their special day.. Teaching them that a awalk in the woods is bettter than anything you could buy. I guess I should say I think you are a wonderful person and wonderful mom.. Don’t change who you Are and compromise your reputation on the Internet by selling Xyngular. We all known that it will not do all that they claim. Just be careful. From someone that cares. Mary


    1. I am going to have to pray about this. I’m not aware of anything these products are claiming to cure. From my understanding, they are simply vitamins and weight loss aids. I only have about ten pounds to lose, so I was looking for an energy boost. The fact that the vitamins and juice seem to have “cured” one of my longest battled symptom has blown me away and made me want to share them with others. I stand behind the ingredients listed on the juice and the vitamins…they are phenomenal. The others may be more questionable than I’m aware. I will continue to research and pray. Either way, I’m not trying to sell these to change my lifestyle–just so I can afford to keep ordering something I really like. πŸ™‚


  4. Sarah, I have to add my list to the hat of those disappointed to see you pushing Xyngular. It’s snake oil, friend…sold by snakes (and dishonest ones at that, and chances are, you know who I’m specifically talking about).

    It may have cured your sun migraines, but the business ethics of the company are questionable…and the safety of their products are questionable as well. Please don’t compromise your integrity by aligning yourself with their sales practices. I know it can be alluring…seeing others jetting off on vacations, making gobs of money. But it’s not an honest way to conduct yourself.

    Anyways, looking forward to your book…which is an honest way to make a living.


    1. Would you mind e-mail me privately and giving me the info about the business practices you are referring to? You’re right, I certainly don’t want to get involved in anything shady!! But you guys crack me up! Surely you know that money and vacations don’t have the ability to turn my head. Haha…I couldn’t take a vacation even if I won it. πŸ˜‰ I’m NOT a saleswoman so even when i seen people making money with something, I don’t transfer that possibility to me. In all honesty, I am just feel amazing! I didn’t even need to make coffee this morning (and I haven’t taken an Xyng in days…just the vitamin and juice). I really don’t want to give these up because I’ve never found a vitamin that made any impact on my life before. Maybe I should sell Shaklee (which I’m also a distributor and love) so that I can afford to buy my Xyngular. πŸ˜‰
