for the boys' room. The boys have been sleeping on air mattresses and couches since they left for college. We finally broke down and bought new beds and bedding!

Kaitlin loves helping her dad put together things, so they had fun this morning.

Kaleb will be home early this evening for Thanksgiving week. He originally planned on coming Tuesday afternoon after work, but managed to get Monday and Tuesday off too.

Brandon will be here sometime on Wednesday. He's working on a big project at work, and it just depends on when they get it done. Hopefully he'll be here Wednesday afternoon.

My best friend, Melody, took me to the .38 Special concert Friday night at Hartman Arena.

We danced the night away and had a great time. It was pretty late when we got home, so she crashed at our house before heading home yesterday morning.

Yesterday was another busy day for us. We grabbed breakfast at McDonald's drive-thru and then headed out to visit mom. She was in a good mood and we had a really good visit. We went to Target to pick up a few necessities, and it was very crowded. People are already out in droves Christmas shopping! It was the same story at Sam's. Fortunately we only picked up a few things there, and were then on our way to Dillons. Yes, they were packed with everyone out shopping for Thanksgiving dinner - just like us! $120 later (just @ Dillons) we made it home. Late in the afternoon we met our friends Cindy and Jerry at El Rodeo for dinner. We had a good visit, and then came home and crashed. I was pretty tired.

Today is a typical Sunday. Corby fixed egg & cheese bagels for breakfast, read the paper, clipped coupons and got laundry started. Now it's time for Chief's FOOTBALL! They're at home against the Arizona Cardinals. C'mon Chiefs. Let's win this thing!

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.
The Nanny Arrangement

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…
