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!

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.

REVIEW - Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

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!
