15 Things I Love / Hate about our Humble Abode

I've been reading Simple Scrapbooks magazine this afternoon. This is a good idea for a page, so I decided to blog it too!

1. Love the 2,000 square feet!
2. Hate the fact that our privacy fence is about ready to fall down and needs replaced!
3. Love the 2 full baths, a must with a teenage daughter
4. Love my purple bathroom.
5. Love the 2 car garage, even though we can only park one vehicle in it most of the time!
6. Love the location - Park City is just far enough from Wichita to enjoy less crime, less noise and mostly-friendly folks!
7. Hate the high water bills - averaging $85/mo.
8. Love the family room - half is the family area and half is my scrapbooking/office area.
9. Not happy with our small bathtubs. Our dream is to expand the master bathroom to include a jacuzzi tub.
10. Love the woodburning fireplace in the family room.
11. Love the big master bedroom. Not huge, but big enough for our king-size waterbed, several dressers and a chair.
12. Love having 2 big closets in the master bedroom. That gives Corby half a closet!
13. Love the room-darkening shades in the master bedroom. It sure helps me sleep in a bit on the weekends.
14. Not happy with the size of the kitchen. It's definitely larger than the galley-style kitchen we had in our old house, but still not big enough for Corby. And we all know I want to keep my personal chef happy!
15. Love the red paint in the kitchen.

REVIEW - Before and Again by Barbara Delinsky

4 Stars
St. Martin's Press
Release date: June 26, 2018

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I've been reading Delinksy's books for years, and she's always an author I can count on for a good read. This book is no exception. I did find it a little harder to get into than previous books, it seemed a bit disjointed at first. Thus 4 stars instead of 5.

The book is about Mackenzie Cooper, who moved to a small town to lose herself and get away from a tragic occurrence in her life. It delves deeply into the despair of losing a child (this happens at the very beginning so it's not a spoiler) and what happens between the spouses who are having trouble communicating their pain. It also deals with Mackenzie's mother and brother, and their estrangement.

Suddenly, Mackenzie's ex-husband appears, in HER town, HER haven. Can they find their way back together, or is the past too painful to forget?

The Osmonds on PBS

I've never hidden my obsession with the Osmonds. Donny and his oldest performing brother, Alan, were my favorites. While "flipping" channels tonight around 7pm, Corby came across the Osmonds 50th Anniversary concert in Las Vegas on PBS. It was filmed last August. Can you believe the oldest brothers have been performing for 50 years? I can tell you exactly how old every Osmond brother is. They are all 2 years apart, Alan is 58, Wayne is 56, Merrill is 54, Jay is 52 and Donny is a year younger than me. He turned 50 in December. (Guess that tells everybody how old I am, huh?). Marie is 48, and oops, I'm not sure how old "baby" Jimmy is.
I was jamming to all those 70's songs: Double Lovin', One Bad Apple, Puppy Love, Down by the Lazy River, Yo-Yo, Love Me For a Reason, Crazy Horses, The Proud One, Let Me In, and the very best harmony ever - He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother! What a performance! Alan has MS now, so doesn't perform much, but he w…

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.
