College Life!

We got word Wednesday night that Brandon's roommate will not be returning to K-State second semester due to poor grades. Poor kid! He's our "third" son, so I feel really bad for him. That said, it's been a mad rush trying to make other living arrangements. They already had a "new" third person moving into their apartment for 2nd semester, and Brandon wasn't too cool with finding another "new" roommate. He's kind of a shy guy, and I don't really blame him. So - he's moving back to the dorms! Corby and I have to take Tuesday off and go to Manhattan to play the "apartment/dorm" switch-a-roo! We'll be cleaning his apartment, loading up Kaitlin's truck to bring his stuff home, and then moving him to the dorm. Sounds like fun, huh? Not really, but - at least we get to see him! He'll still have a new roommate - but he'll be in the dorms where he'll be able to make new friends.

Friday night I went to Sandy's (my sister-in-law) to make some cards with her Stampin' Up group. We had a good time, even though I only made two of the four cards. I brought the rest of the projects home with me so I can finish them here. I told Sandy she needs to build a big building on the side of their house to accommodate her card-making parties! They've got a nice big house, and a good-sized basement, but her parties are pretty popular so we were kind of packed in there! I just wish I was as creative as Sandy...

We went to Panera yesterday morning for breakfast. We haven't been there in ages, and we never eat out for breakfast, so it was a treat! I absolutely LOVE their "everything" bagels! YUMMY!

Last night we went out with our friends Susan and Dennis. We ate at ON THE BORDER and then went and saw MARLEY & ME! Really good movie! I'll warn you though, take some tissues! We had a great time! (Thanks for driving Dennis!) Kaitlin had to work, and Kaleb went bowling with a bunch of friends. Funny story though...Kaitlin texted me while we were in the movie. In case you haven't been to the Warren Theatres in a while, they have banned cell phones. So even though I could feel my phone vibrating around 11:30, I couldn't check to see who it was until the movie was over about midnight. Her text was "where r u?". I texted her back and said "leaving movie". When we got home she came running out the front door and told us we missed our curfew! HA! Cracked me up! I guess she was worried about us because she didn't think we'd be out that late!

Today we cleaned out the garage, and the little refrigerator we'll be taking up to Brandon. We took Cinnamon for a long walk. It's a beautiful day, and she likes to walk by the pond. I think it has something to do with the geese and ducks that swim in the pond.

Some recent pictures for Project 365:

Since we're trying to eat healthier, here are some of our choices...My car, after Sugar got her pawprints all over it...and the ducks and geese on our walk today...
Today's music choice is Taylor Swift's newest CD, Fearless...really good!

I hate moving. Glad you can spend the time with your son though!

That is funny that you liked Marley and Me...I have been warning people away from it - LOL. Perhaps it was my frame of mind at the time, but it really was too heavy for me. So cute that Kaitlin said you missed your curfew! :)

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.

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...

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?)
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…

Blood on the Tracks

By Barbara Nickless
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Expected Publication Date: October 1, 2016
Genre: Mystery/suspense

From the back cover:
"A sadistic murder draws a war-haunted cop into the deadly world of a rail-riding gang."

My review:
Sydney Rose Parnell, a special agent for the railroad police, is suffering from PTSD after her time in the war. So when she is drawn into a murder mystery, the ghosts that haunt her appear more and more often. She is looking for the murderer of a young lady who helped the homeless. With the help of her K9 companion, Clyde, who is also a war veteran; she sets out to solve the crime. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way.

I loved Sydney's strength and determination, even though she had bouts of mental fragility from the war. Who wouldn't? I highly recommend this author's first book.
