The Toe

I would love to post a picture of my big toe, but I think I would gross too many people out. Suffice it to say that's it's still pretty scary looking. I think it's taking a bit longer to heal (and scab over) since the gauze got stuck to it. I'm still soaking it or wrapping it in a wet towel for a while every night. Kaitlin went to Old Navy today and I had her pick me up a couple of new pairs of flip flops (2/$5-can't beat that price) since that's all I can wear right now. I keep a big bandaid on it when I'm at work, but I think that just agitates it even more, so once I'm home the bandaid comes off and I let it breathe. Aren't you all getting sick of "toe" posts by now?

We've started collecting boxes so the kids can start packing. Brandon got all their utilities set up today, and the countdown is on (17 or 18 days-keep reading). They are moving either Fri. July 31st or Sat. Aug. 1. They can't have the gas turned on until Monday the 3rd if they move on Saturday, so Kaitlin is going to e-mail their landlord and see if they can move in on the 31st. Corby is off work that whole week, and I'm off Thursday and Friday. Originally I was going to be gone that week to State College, PA with my boss, but our trip has been cancelled. I'm glad, because that would have been 5 less days with the kids.

Corby and Brandon went to the eye doctor today. They both needed new glasses and even with insurance it cost a ton of money. In fact, Corby isn't quite the shopper I am so I'm calling them in the morning to change something on his lenses so we can save about $80. What can I say - the guy needs me? LOL!

Kaitlin informed me today that she'd gone through my "pet" file and figured out how old the pets are. Cinnamon will be 6 this fall, Sugar just turned 5, Muffin is 3 and Abby was 1 in April. They will soon be the only "kids" we'll have left at home!

Today's music: Daughtry's new CD. Kaitlin picked it up at Target today.

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.

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…
