Enjoying my vacation, but....

I was hoping to have one day to myself, to relax and do whatever I wanted to do. Doesn't look like that will happen. The kids and I were gone most of the day yesterday - moving some furniture for my sister, shopping, meeting Corby for dinner at Texas Roadhouse (YUMMY!).

Today, Corby had a tooth extracted. They put him completely out, so he's been Mr. Groggy in la-la land! (But hey, he got a prescription for Loritab-YEAH!) The boys and I went to Sam's to pick up some things, including a new monitor for the kids computer. Corby won't be going back to work until Thursday. Tomorrow we have someone coming to look at the siding on our house. I guess there is a class action lawsuit against the makers of the siding, so we may be able to collect some money. Keep your fingers crossed! The kids and I have some more running to do, and then it's back to work on Thursday, UGH! Oh well, at least I only have to work 2 days this week!

Read the newest James Patterson book "Sail". It was a quick read, and one of his better books. Some of the books he's written the last few years have been really disjointed, but I enjoyed this one. If any of you want to read it, let me know, I'll loan it to you.

Picked up a couple of CD's at Sam's today also: John Mellencamp's "Life Death Love and Freedom" and Journey's "Revelation". I guess they have a new lead singer that's replaced Steve Perry (for those of you who are old Journey fans). This new CD has 2 CD's, one new and one remakes with the new lead singer, as well as a DVD concert. For just under $12, it was a bargain! Both CD's are really good!

I also picked up Wheel of Fortune and Rock and Roll Jeopardy for the computer. HEATHER, you could probably kick some serious bootie at Jeopardy. Me, I'm doing okay, but since it goes from the 60's clear through today there are some years in there that I lack knowledge - specifically the late 80's/early 90's when my kids were born. Anyway, I'm addicted to both games. I've played about 2 hours late this afternoon. I think I need to stop and go get some laundry going, or at least try to do something productive!

Linda -
Does that new singer sounds just like Steve Perry or what?? It's crazy.
I may have to try and find me a computer trivia game.
Today's my Friday. whoot-whoot.

Life Goes On

Life changed for me on July 17, 2017. I was laid off from the place I worked for almost 41 years.

I wasn't totally surprised. After all, layoffs have become the norm at newspapers. I was hoping I could make it at least another year.

But...alas...I didn't.

The Wichita Eagle has been my home and my life for so long. I started just after I turned 20 years old. Back in the good old days. What have I done over the years?

Job 1 - Classified Ad Taker
Job 2 - Classified Ad Support Staff
Job 3 - Ad Services Head Typist
Job 4 - Newspaper Layout Assistant
Job 5 - Production Director Secretary
Job 6 - VP/Operations Administrative Assistant
Job 7 - Executive Administrative Assistant and Layout Coordinator
Job 8 - Page Layout Manager
Job 9 - Prepress Manager
Job 10 - Advertising Customer Service Manager

There are other job duties in between all of these milestones. I dedicated my heart and soul to the Eagle. I started when I was so young. I met my husband while I worked there. I had all three of my child…

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS
by ALLISON BRENNAN
St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016
5 STARS

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.

REVIEW - Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

5 STARS
Need to Know
Karen Cleveland
Ballantine Books
RELEASE DATE: 1/23/2018

Thanks to NetGalley for the chance to read this book by Karen Cleveland.

Do books about the possibility of Russian sleeper cells in the US interest you? How about a CIA analyst who gets herself involved in a major "situation"?

Need to Know kept me on the edge of my seat, from the first paragraph to the very last. I didn't want to put it down, but when I had to, all I did was think about it. I explained what was going on to my husband, who is not a reader. Even he was intrigued. If you like fast-paced, punch-you-in-the-face kind of action, this book is for you.

Very highly recommend!
