The Crud

Well, I guess it was meant to be. Everyone else in the family has had the "crud" - now it's my turn. It started with Kaitlin's walking pneumonia, progressed to Kaleb's missing a day of school last week with a bad cold, cough and chest congestion; then on to Corby who's had mostly a cough; to me - with all of it! It's weird though. My colds usually start with a sore throat. This just started with a nasty cough. I don't know which is worse, a nose that won't stop running, or being so stopped up your head feels like it's falling off. I'm kind of in the middle right now...popping the Cold-Eze lozenges, drinking some Vitamin C and I plan to get some rest tonight!

We didn't do anything for Super Bowl...we used to have a Super Bowl party every year, but the last few years I just don't get into it. I don't usually care about who's playing and the commercials aren't that great. Corby grilled some burgers and brats, and we just hung out at home. Kaleb went to a friend's house and Kaitlin got home from work about halftime. Here's one of those "stretch the arm - take your own" picture:
As you can see, Corby's banged-up head is healing. His echocardiogram came back normal. The "holter" monitor he wore for 24 hours malfunctioned, so he had to go back this Monday and get it put on again. It will be late next week before we get the results.

Check out this little pint of ice cream. Kaitlin and Corby shared it - notice the broken up Heath bar on top? Kaitlin's favorite way to eat vanilla ice cream. Looks yummy. I can't eat Heath bars because they tear up my teeth. This isn't really part of our eating healthier program, but since they shared I guess it's okay.

Got more depressing news at work today. Don't even want to talk about it. Suffice it to say I work in the struggling newspaper industry...

I'm sorry there was more depressing news. Just what you didn't need when you feel so bad anyway.

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.

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…
