They finally found an engine for my car! It's in Missouri, so by the time they get it here and get it in my car, it will be next week - but at least there is an end to our car drought! The twins, Kaleb especially, have been very gracious in sharing their vehicles. I say Kaleb especially because Kaitlin is VERY territorial about her truck. She doesn't like anybody else to drive it - PERIOD! I'm okay with that for the most part, but sometimes you have to do things to help out the family! I drove Kaleb's car yesterday, and since she went to work at 4, and he went to work at 5, Corby planned on leaving work a little early to get Kaleb to work. However, he had a bad day and couldn't leave, so I had to force Kaitlin to let Kaleb drive her to work, so he could use her truck to go at 5. She doesn't want him driving her truck because he's not used to a really big vehicle. He only drove our old Suburban a couple of times. However, he's a good driver, so she didn't get a choice. You would have thought it was the end of the world. In fact, she hung up on me. Let's just say I don't think she'll EVER hang up on me again!

I just finished Debbie Macomber's latest book - 8 Sandpiper Way. I enjoy her books. Quick reads, great characters!

I just started Fractured by Karin Slaughter. She's another favorite author. The first couple of chapters are action packed and suspenseful...I think it's going to be good.

Corby is flipping back and forth between the Cubs game and the K-State game. He's screaming at both teams, since they are both losing. I just keep turning my music up louder!

And a quote for today: "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart." -- Winnie The Pooh

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!
