Life with Kids Again...

The boys both came home last night for spring break -- Kaleb, via Lawrence, where he picked a friend up at KU. She lives near us here in Park City, and she's without a car right now, so he did the noble thing and gave her a ride home. Brandon -- via Junction City, where he dropped one of their roommates off so he could catch a bus to Minnesota where he lives. Kaitlin will be home tomorrow around noon because she had to work today. We watched the K-State / Baylor game when they got home. Here are the guys watching the game:

Today was spent running around...went to visit mom, stopped at Verizon so Brandon could buy a new phone; Corby ran to Bed, Bath & Beyond while we were in Verizon to buy part of Kaitlin's birthday present, stopped at Michael's, Target and then Dillons. We were all tired of shopping by the time we got home.

The boy's friend Brady came over tonight to watch the KU / K-State basketball game. KU ended up winning the Big 12 Championship game. Congrats to them, tho Brady, the boys and I were rooting for the Wildcats...

I bought a new purse at Kohl's this week.

I am not a big purse freak. In fact, I carry one for a year or two until it wears out, and then buy a new one. But I got a good deal on this one. It was already on sale, and I got another 20% off. Hope it lasts for a while!

Have my Powerball tickets in hand, hoping to win that $200 million dollar purse tonight! Wish me luck!

Looking forward to a couple of days vacation while the kids are here. I go back to work on Wednesday, which is when Brandon has to go back to work. The twins will be here until Sunday. We are having a family birthday celebration with my family tomorrow - celebrating the twins 19th birthday which is Monday, and my sister-in-law's birthday which is on St. Patty's day. I won't mention her age. LOL! We're meeting at On The Border (west) and I know we'll have a great time. Wish my niece, Lenore & her hubby Daniel could be here, as well as my nephews Eric & Ryan. Someday we will ALL be together as a family! Kind of hard with Lenore and Daniel in Germany, and Eric and his family in California.

Got a good offer from Mystery Guild today, so of course I signed up! Gotta have those books coming in all the time, voracious reader that I am!
Oh, and I bought tickets this week to the REO Speedwagon / Pat Benatar concert at Intrust Bank Arena in July. Got 6th row on the floor! YIPPEE! I've seen REO numerous times, but have never seen Pat. Really looking forward to it!

Sounds like your days will be full. Enjoy the kids, have a great family birthday dinner tomorrow and TRY not to think about work.

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

THE LOST GIRLS
by ALLISON BRENNAN

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.

REVIEW - Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

5 STARS
Need to Know
Karen Cleveland
Ballantine Books
RELEASE DATE: 1/23/2018

Thanks to NetGalley for the chance to read this book by Karen Cleveland.

Do books about the possibility of Russian sleeper cells in the US interest you? How about a CIA analyst who gets herself involved in a major "situation"?

Need to Know kept me on the edge of my seat, from the first paragraph to the very last. I didn't want to put it down, but when I had to, all I did was think about it. I explained what was going on to my husband, who is not a reader. Even he was intrigued. If you like fast-paced, punch-you-in-the-face kind of action, this book is for you.

Very highly recommend!
