Uh........

It's been "one of those weeks". Got the scoop on my car on Tuesday - Magnetic speed sensor inside the transmission that needs replaced. Estimate $975. I said "NO" and picked up my car as it's still running. Thought about it for a couple of days, and decided to get it fixed. Even though I've had numerous issues with my car, I like it. We decided since we are not able to buy a new car right now (3 kids in college people!), it would be advantageous to fix it. So, I dropped it off at lunchtime today, and should have it back on Tuesday. Of course, we'll be about $1000 poorer! It's a good thing Corby will have a great check next week because of his recent overtime!

Today was wild at work. My assistant had to leave unexpectedly around 11:30. She had a wreck about 4 months ago that messed up her back and neck, and she was having major problems today. She went to the ER and got some strong pain medicine, but then had to go home. So I was thrown into a busy Friday by myself. It wasn't my week to work late and paginate classified, but I had to cover it for her. So Corby finally picked me up around 6:30. I am off Monday and Tuesday. So glad because I need those days to recuperate from this week! It's only going to get busier since it's the holiday season, but I'll survive.

Here are some recent pics:

Corby grilling us some burgers...he made enough for leftovers, so we ate them for several days!

Busy weekend ahead. We are going to a Jewish wedding tomorrow. It will be my first Jewish wedding. Vonnie is a good friend from work, and I'm so happy that she's found her soulmate!

Today's music was actually Bon Jovi. Waiting to see how much tickets will be for their concert at Intrust Bank Arena. I'd like to go, but we'll have to see whether it's affordable.

Was thinking about you yesterday and wondering about your car. It's a good thing Corby had that overtime. Unfortunately, it seems that extra money usually has to go for a "need" instead of a "want" ... oh well.
We'll be going to Reganne's 2nd birthday party this afternoon. Laurie will be bringing Lexi and then we'll be bringing her to Burns until tomorrow evening when we meet Jessica in El Dorado.
Hope you relax a bunch for the next few days.

I forgot (as usual) to say ... love the pictures. I can almost smell those burgers, Cinnamon looks very comfy, and the leaves ... gorgeous!

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…
