Mom had a doctor's appointment at 3 today. I got home at 7. I got to Presby. Manor at 2:20 to pick her up. 20 minutes later, after chasing down her nurse, we got the paperwork we needed to take to the doctor. I must interject, they normally have the paperwork ready. Today wasn't a good day to be running late though, as her doctor recently moved to Derby, so we were headed quite a distance to a place we'd never been before. We hit Derby about 3:05, but the directions I'd been given were bogus. After driving around, stopping twice for directions, and calling the clinic, we finally made it at 3:25. When we checked in, we were told that we may have to reschedule because we were more than 15 minutes late. Fortunately, the doctor said she'd go ahead and take us. After a 5 minute wait, the nurse took us back and we answered all of her questions. ONE HOUR LATER, at 5:15, we were still waiting on the doctor. Mom and I were having a great visit, so we weren't freaking out. The doctor finally came in at 5:30 and apologized. Apparently, she looked for mom and when she didn't realize we were in one of the rooms, she moved on to the next patient. That patient ended up being a HUGE problem, and when she finally left that patient they told her we were still there. She felt really bad, but still.....IT WAS A LONG AFTERNOON! We finally left the doctor's office at 6, and after stopping for NuWay and taking mom home, I got home at 7. And yes, I needed a beer by the time I got home!

Is her dr. a the Derby Family Med Center?

no, she's now at the Wichita Clinic there. She was down by St. Francis, which worked great, but man, Derby is a long ways to go from Zoo & West!

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

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.

REVIEW - Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

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!
