Jon & Kate Plus 8

I've never hidden my love for the TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8. It's the story of a young couple who have difficulty conceiving. Through IUI, an intrauterine insemination, she became pregnant with twin girls. When they decided they wanted one more child, they tried again. However, this time she became pregnant with sextuplets. Though doctors wanted them to do selective reduction, they refused, and they now have 8 healthy children. The book is a very good insight into their life from the time they met, got married, had twins and sextuplets, all within 5 years. When watching the show, I sometimes find Kate to be overbearing and mean to Jon, but after reading the book, I understand a little more about why she is that way. They were meant for each other because Jon is very mellow and laid back. They seem like a "real" family, and it's fascinating to watch how they survive! And yes, I think it should be called survival. The sextuplets recently turned 4, so I don't know how much longer they will do the show. Anyway, I have the book if anyone wants to borrow it. It's a quick read...

Are you all as sick as I am with the Madonna divorce? Who cares? I'm not and never been a big Madonna fan anyway, but the media just goes way overboard. How long have they really been separated, is she having an affair with A-Rod, who is going to get the kids, how much is she worth? UGH! Enough is enough!

ya know, i used to like Madonna, but in recent years she has just really gotten on my nerves. Like that stupid fake English accent. What was that about?

I don't know how anyone does it with that many kids - having two is enough to make me crazy!
The whole Madonna thing didn't really interest me. I half expect celebrities to get divorced so I am rarely shocked.

you don't know for sure if she was having an affair with a-rod

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!
