SOON???

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!

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.
