That's what our lives has been lately. This week has just been work as usual.

However, we ARE trying to spend as much time with the kids as we can. They leave for Manhattan on Aug. 1. Well - we all leave - as Corby and I will be moving them, lock, stock and barrel! I think at least Brandon and Kaitlin are coming home the weekend of August 15th, as there is a concert at the Coliseum that Brandon wants to go to. Kaitlin wants to come home to see her cats! LOL!

I am trying to prepare myself for an empty nest, but I don't think it's possible until it actually happens. I am off work July 30th through August 4th - the 30th & 31st to get the kids packed and ready to go. Then Aug. 3rd & 4th to figure out how we will live without them! We're moving them on August 1st. Kaitlin wants us to spend the night in Manhattan. Since they are renting a house, we can do that if we choose. We'll see what time we get out of here and how long it takes to unload and unpack. I'm gonna miss my babies, that much I know!

My life is boring, too! I've been trying to get caught up on blog reading. Sorry I didn't help you get to 5000 hits! I'm trying to make a blog comeback, though! You'll probably read 3 more books a week when you find yourself in that empty nest! Puts me to shame!

Did my dad tell you I'd be in town from Aug 29th to Sept 7th?

We'll party down ;)

Ahh Linda, your post makes me sad thinking about my own babies leaving someday. I guess the good thing for you is you seem to have such an amazing relatioship with your kids, it's obvious they love you very much! I bet they visit you so much you will soon be asking them, "don't you need to get back to school?"

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.

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...

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?)
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…

Blood on the Tracks

By Barbara Nickless
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Expected Publication Date: October 1, 2016
Genre: Mystery/suspense

From the back cover:
"A sadistic murder draws a war-haunted cop into the deadly world of a rail-riding gang."

My review:
Sydney Rose Parnell, a special agent for the railroad police, is suffering from PTSD after her time in the war. So when she is drawn into a murder mystery, the ghosts that haunt her appear more and more often. She is looking for the murderer of a young lady who helped the homeless. With the help of her K9 companion, Clyde, who is also a war veteran; she sets out to solve the crime. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way.

I loved Sydney's strength and determination, even though she had bouts of mental fragility from the war. Who wouldn't? I highly recommend this author's first book.
