August? Where did July go?

Can you believe it is August already? Where did the summer go? School starts next Thursday!

Look at these two beautiful kitty cats!Aren't they sweet? Getting Abby was the best thing for Muffin. She was missing Callie, even though Callie was old when we got Muffin, and they didn't really play together, but they did snuggle up next to each other sometimes. Abby is still very much a kitten, and can be very annoying, especially if she climbs up your legs (yes, she'll be getting declawed when she's 6 months old). But she is also a sweetie pie!

And now - the biggest project in our house the last couple of days? Clearing out the boys bedroom and painting! And I have to say I didn't have to do any of it!!!! (That's the best part). Kaleb has been wanting to paint his (well it's his when Brandon is gone) bedroom for a while. We told him a couple of weeks ago that if he totally cleaned it out, including the closet that was a disaster area, he could paint. Lo and behold - he did it! Actually, he and Brandon went through the entire bedroom last week and filled up several trash bags. So...we went and bought paint last night. Kaitlin helped Kaleb with all the prep work and painting, and it's taking shape. Here it is still in progress.My camera batteries died while I was trying to take a picture of Corby putting up the new ceiling fan. I'll post a picture of the room when it's all done. We still have to get some curtains and clean the carpet before moving stuff back in. Carpet cleaning will happen tomorrow night. I'm really proud of the kids. They did a great job. I asked Kaitlin if she wants to paint the rest of the house and she's ready! Now we just have to pick some colors, and figure out how to paint the entryway. Living in a bi-level can be a pain! Oh well, we will figure something out, someday!

Music playing right now - Keith Anderson's new CD "C'mon". Kaitlin went and got it today at Best Buy. REALLY, REALLY GOOD! He's from Oklahoma and pretty much a hunk too!

I am SO ready for this heat to be gone! Even 90 sounds good...try to stay cool everybody!

I'm with you. I cannot believe it's August already. Christmas will be here before we know it.

Those two cats are so cute. I wish Justin would let me get another cat. It ain't gonna happen. ;o(

Tell Kaitlin she can come over anytime and paint my house. I HATE it!!

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

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.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…
The Nanny Arrangement

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.
