A week in the life...

We had a fairly normal week, some days were busier than others.

I went to mom's quarterly care plan meeting. Because of her fall about 10 days ago, they have set her up for some physical therapy. She's not too happy that she is supposed to have someone walk with her whenever she walks down the hall. I think she's still pretty steady on her feet. When she fell in her closet (into her laundry basket) she was reaching for something on the top shelf. I'm guessing she stumbled into her laundry basket and that's what made her fall. I am glad that Presbyterian Manor is monitoring her, because we certainly don't want her to fall and hurt herself!

Corby fixed a wonderful salad last Sunday for dinner.

And then a few days later fixed some bow-tie Velveeta mac & cheese - adding Rotel. It was really yummy, but was pretty spicy.

Leeker's is having double dollar coupons, so we did our shopping there yesterday. I saved $21 - I love saving money!

We had some storms come through Friday evening. Muffin enjoyed watching from the basement window.

Corby fixed more screens today.

This is out of the boys' old bedroom. Now we can open the window! Of course, with the storms this past week, Cinnamon tore up the basement screens again. UGH!

We went and saw the new Jennifer Lopez movie - The Back-Up Plan - yesterday. We really enjoyed it! Not an Oscar winner by a long shot, but it was enjoyable.

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.
