No pics today

Mom had an eye doctor appointment this afternoon, but I got a call from the nursing home this morning saying she didn't feel well and wanted me to cancel the appointment. So, I rescheduled for the end of January. It's been a quiet, relaxing day at our house.

Kaleb has been having computer problems, so he took his hard drive to Best Buy to have the "Geek Squad" give him the lowdown on what's wrong. He should know in the next few days. Kaitlin and Brandon went to Taco Bueno for lunch. I am not impressed with TB, so they went by themselves. Corby worked on Brandon's car, fixing the headlight, the hood latch and the manifold.  Everything is good with his car now. I'm working on my 5th load of laundry for today, after doing ALL the laundry on Sunday. We definitely have more with all the kids home for the holidays.

We also made a run to Leeker's to pick up some milk and cat litter. Yes, it's been a quiet day. Now we are ready to watch two basketball games - K-State and WSU. We'll be flipping the channels back and forth watching both games....

My current read: Mr. and Miss Anonymous by Fern Michaels. I'm hoping to finish it tonight.

Back to work tomorrow, but at least I only have to work 2 days this week! YIPPEE!!!! Also, we are hoping to get pre-approved for a new car, and hope to test drive a Suzuki SX4 Sport tomorrow night.

OK dear friend, i am going to pretend i didn't read that part about you not liking Taco Bueno. It is the single greatest fast food mexican on the planet. Luckily, your good features way outweigh that one tiny fault! Glad your kiddos are getting some quality time with you momma! Enjoy it!

The Nanny Arrangement
by Rachel Harris
May 22, 2017
Entangled Publishing

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.
