Sick Kitty

Poor Sugar...she is getting better day by day, but she is still confined in the downstairs bathroom. And let me tell you, sharing one bathroom with 3 adult children (well, they THINK they're adults) is a pain in the tush. We could use the bathroom downstairs, but it's fairly small, and with a litter box, food bowls and a sick cat, we've opted to share the upstairs one.

She's taking lots of medication.Kaitlin giving her medsShe's not too thrilled with us.Corby talked to the vet today. Hopefully we'll be able to let her back outside in the next day or two. After tomorrow she will have one pill twice a day. We're not sure she will hang around to get those pills, but we're going to have to let her go soon.

The kids and I (and a friend of Brandon's) are headed to KC for the weekend. We will leave early Saturday morning and drop the boys off at Rockfest - a big outdoors concert at the Liberty Memorial. Kaitlin and I will hang out, shop, swim at the hotel, etc., while they are at the concert. Then we are going to the Royals game on Sunday. Thank goodness the hotel and game were paid for before our huge expense for the cat! Brandon has an extra ticket for Rockfest - one of his friends is unable to go. That means we have an extra ticket to the game. Corby was thinking about going with us, but he's decided to stay home and make sure Sugar gets her meds, etc. What a guy! Actually, I think he doesn't want to shop with me and Kaitlin. HA!

Getting some laundry done tonight and we'll do grocery shopping tonight since I'll be gone all weekend. I took Monday off to recuperate!

The Nanny Arrangement
by Rachel Harris
May 22, 2017

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…

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.
