We Got Him Moved

I was too tired to post last night, but we got Brandon moved yesterday. It was a long day, but we got everything done. His new dorm roommate wasn't back from Christmas break yet. I imagine he met him today. We hadn't eaten all day, so we took Brandon to Freddy's Frozen Custard before we left town. No, it wasn't in our plan for healthier eating, but we felt like we deserved it because we worked hard all day. Here's Corby pigging out on cones. He ordered a small vanilla cone, but the guy accidentally made him chocolate, and just gave it to us, along with the vanilla one. So of course I had to get a picture. He didn't make it through both cones, but he tried!

Here's me and my baby. Okay, so he's not my baby since he's the oldest - but as far as I'm concerned - when you're a mom - they're ALL your babies...

And here's a couple of pictures of the sun setting as we were driving home. This one is headed west into Salina...And this one is headed south on I-35 between Salina and McPherson.
My current book is Marley & Me by John Grogan. Since I enjoyed the movie, a friend loaned me the book. For those of you who have seen the movie, but NOT read the book - Marley was about 10 times WORSE than he was portrayed in the movie. I'm not sure I would have stuck with such an incorrigable animal. Okay, I probably would have, but still...

After a hard day's work like that, a couple of cones is a nice reward.

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

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.
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…
