More Scrapbooking!

Yep, I opted to do more scrapbooking today. I've been going through my stuff, re-organizing and did a few pages.Now I'm just waiting for the hubby and kids to get home from Senior Day at K-State. They didn't get out until after 3, so they should be home soon.

I love animals, I truly do - but our 3 cats and dog have been driving me crazy since I've been home by myself for 2 days. Cinnamon - our big baby Chow/Husky, has been in the house the last 2 nights because of the wind. She has ear problems occasionally, so really strong wind bothers her. Anyway, getting up in the middle of the night and letting her out, letting her in, letting her out (you get the picture) makes me feel like I have a baby again! The outdoor cat, Sugar, has been all over me any time I go outside. She even tries to bite my toes. Weird! Abby - she has taken to springing out into the garage whenever you open the door. Not a good thing if Sugar happens to be in the garage. When she did it this afternoon right before I went to the grocery store, I just left her out there. The door was closed and Sugar was outside, so I figured I'd let her see the "rougher" side of a kitty cat's life! By the time I got home from the store, she shot back in the house! Doubt it will teach her a lesson though. And Muffin - she's been the queen of the pets. No problem! Just a loving, less needy, animal!

Back to work tomorrow - UGH!

One cat keeps us busy enough - I can't imagine having any more!

Glad you got some good "me" time, even though you had those pesky animals to take care of. It's sans pets everyday at my house!

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.
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.

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…
