The Tooth and...

My tooth has been bothering me the last few days, but after being unable to sleep last night I decided I better call the dentist. Thankfully they were able to squeeze me in today. It's one of my bottom teeth, at the very back of my mouth. Dr. Orth said it was infected, and gave me two options: get a root canal and a crown, or get it pulled. Not today, of course. But I do have to make up my mind. A root canal and crown will cost around $2000, and insurance won't pay much of it. An extraction will cost between $100-$175. I'm leaning towards the extraction, but have a week or so to decide. He prescribed me an antibiotic and Lortab for the pain. I also scheduled an appointment for a cleaning, as it's been far too long since I've had it done. Time to invest some money in my teeth I guess...

Cinnamon was SO funny last night. She was in the house and the front door was open. All of a sudden she ran downstairs and started freaking out at the door. There was a bunny in the front yard - a really CUTE bunny!

Looking forward to my trip to KC this weekend. Kaitlin and her best friend Lydia will be home Friday afternoon. They are going to the Nickelback concert at Intrust Bank Arena on Friday night. Kaleb and their roommate Dom will be here Friday afternoon. And Brandon will be home Friday night after his last final. Then early Saturday morning (Corby is staying home) all the kids and I will head to KC. Brandon, Kaleb and Dom are going to Rockfest at Liberty Memorial Park. We will drop them off, and then Kaitlin, Lydia and I will hang out for the day. We are staying at the Westin Crown Center, so the boys can just walk back to the hotel at the end of the all-day concert. Sunday morning we will head to Manhattan, where Corby will meet us with Kaitlin's truck. Before we pack up Kaitlin for her move home, we're hoping to go to the K-State/KU baseball game. Sunday is Brandon's 21st birthday!!! We will be celebrating with friends and family on Monday evening at Abuelo's!

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.
