Nothing New

Not much out of the ordinary going on around here. It was a crazy week at work, but nothing I can go into here. I had a busy Saturday. We started our day off as we usually do - visiting mom. She is still struggling with her cable TV. She has a hard time remembering channels. Kaitlin typed her up a guide with the channels we know she will watch the most often. I also showed her how to use her up & down channel arrows so she can just look at numerous channels to see if there is something she wants to watch. The nurses and aides help her too. After we left there, Kaleb got a haircut at Fantastic Sam's and we did our grocery shopping at Leeker's. It was double $1 coupon week. I love getting things for FREE! I also went to a Party Lite candle show yesterday afternoon. I am going to have a show - it will be a BINGO show at the Airport Hilton. Not sure how one of these works, but we reserve tables for our guests, who play bingo to win Party Lite prizes. I'll be finding out more about it soon.

Kaitlin and I went to Target this morning and picked up some necessities. We also had to go back to Leeker's to pick up a few things because she decided to make an apple pie. She's off work today, so she helped us clean house too! And of course, Corby watched KU cream Missouri!

My current book is "This Side of Heaven" by Karen Kingsbury. She is a wonderful Christian author, and I've read all her books.

I saw today where Kathleen Sebelius is Obama's pick for the Department of Health and Human Services. I think she is a great choice!Today's music is the latest 3 Doors Down CD...

And, last but not least, today's quote: "You must look within for value. You must look beyond for perspective." -- Unknown

Would you let me know the next time Leeker's plans to have double coupons? Maybe I can take advantage. ~ Anne

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…

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.

REVIEW - Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

Need to Know
Karen Cleveland
Ballantine Books
RELEASE DATE: 1/23/2018

Thanks to NetGalley for the chance to read this book by Karen Cleveland.

Do books about the possibility of Russian sleeper cells in the US interest you? How about a CIA analyst who gets herself involved in a major "situation"?

Need to Know kept me on the edge of my seat, from the first paragraph to the very last. I didn't want to put it down, but when I had to, all I did was think about it. I explained what was going on to my husband, who is not a reader. Even he was intrigued. If you like fast-paced, punch-you-in-the-face kind of action, this book is for you.

Very highly recommend!
