Another Day

It's getting a little more difficult trying to decide what to blog about. Since Facebook is all the rage, and very addictive, I still want to keep up with the blog so that family and friends can see how busy or boring our lives are on any given day.

Some recent picture for my scrapbooking project:

Here's my scrapbooking area - quite a mess, isn't it? As you can see I have a couple of Stampin' Up stamp sets that need "put together".We went to Famous Dave's in Manhattan last Friday before heading home. For some reason, we never go to the one in Wichita, but we've been to the one in Manhattan 3 or 4 times. Probably because there aren't a lot of choices of restaurants up there...When Brandon was home last weekend, his friend and former roommate Brady came over to play video games. It was quite funny, because Kaitlin got in on the action. She rarely plays, but wanted in on the action since they were playing each other online. Brandon and Kaitlin were at the kitchen table, (how do you like Kaitlin's Ninja headband?)while Brady and Kaleb were in the boys bedroom. They had quite a "war" going on. I cracked up laughing at their antics.And here's the latest Abby picture:
She loves this toy. When Kaitlin gets home from work, no matter where Abby is in the house, she comes running to the toy, sits beside it, and meows at Kaitlin. It's hilarious!

We're playing the car repair game again. Several weeks ago, Corby put new springs on my shocks. Last week, he put new shocks on Kaitlin's truck. And now, Kaleb's car is having trouble starting. We're not really sure what it is. But when he can't get it started he tends to flood it. Once he lets it sit awhile it will start. I think Corby's going to have to get the repair manual out and research this problem. It's always something with cars!

I haven't done a post about "Octo-Mom" - the single mom in California, who even though she already had 6 children under 8 years old (and 2 of them disabled) chose IVF and had 8 more babies. I feel so sorry for the children of this woman, and even though I think she loves her kids, I think they need to be taken away from her. We, as taxpayers, are going to pay to raise these children because of her mental instability, and it just "gets my goat" to think that she may actually profit from having these 14 young children. I did see today that the hospital may not release the babies to her care because they don't think she has the means to take care of them. As much as I'd hate to see them go into the foster care system, something needs to be done!

Today's music was Keith Urban's greatest hits. I have to get ready for his July concert (HA!).

I just finished James Patterson's new book Run For Your Life (very good!) and am getting ready to start While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky.

Today's weather was awesome here in Wichita - 75 degrees! In February! Can you believe it? I am SOOOOOO ready for spring!

And I'll end with a quote: "Inside myself is a place where I live all alone, and that is where I renew my springs that never dry up." -- Pearl S. Buck

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.
