Busy Saturday!

We had a busy day...

Kaitlin went to work for a few hours, so Corby, Brandon and I went to see my brother, Mike, and see if Corby could figure out why his truck was over-heating. After looking everything over, Corby determined that the radiator probably needed flushed, as it was full of dirt and sludge. He also told Mike that he needed oil and a new air filter. Hopefully that will fix the problem.

We went on over to Sam's, and picked up a few things that we needed. They were pretty busy, but we got in and out of there in a reasonable amount of time.

Since Brandon is hoping to move out soon, we headed over to Slumberland for a look at their furniture. Kaitlin met us there. He found a pretty nice couch for $799, but today was the last day of the sale. Since he hasn't settled on an apartment yet, he had nowhere to store it. Putting it in our garage for a week or longer is probably not a good thing as Sugar would probably use it/tear it up!

Made a quick stop at Target and then headed home to unload our goodies and grab a bite to eat. Then it was off to Dillons to do our grocery shopping.

It was after 3:30 before we got home. Kaitlin wanted to go to Red Robin for dinner. It's not one of my favorite places, so Corby and Brandon went with her.

Now we are watching the Chiefs preseason game, and they are already down 7-0 to the St. Louis Rams early in the first quarter. They won their first preseason game last week, so hopefully they can win this one too!

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…
