Great Weekend!

Kaleb is home for the weekend. Classes start at K-State week after next, so it's good to get to see him before the craziness of college begins again. Kaitlin starts classes at WSU on Monday the 20th...

Saturday morning Kaitlin and I went out to Super Car Guys so she could finally sign paperwork on her new Isuzu Ascender. They had to take the car out to Suzuki to fix the headlights - it just needed a new relay. Thankfully they gave her a loaner car to drive, since they picked the Isuzu up on Wed. and she didn't get it back until Friday afternoon! There are still of couple of things they need to fix on the interior, so she has to make an appt. to take it back out there.

The boys met us at When Pigs Fly. We got lunch to go and went to Rhonda's for lunch. Corby had to work, so he missed out on the good lunch. We originally planned on going out for dinner, but our lunch was so filling we opted to stay in. We all went to the grocery store, where I bought Kaleb a few groceries to take home with him. We took my car & Kaleb's car so we could both get gas. Brandon let me use his gas points and I got gas for 80 cents off per gallon; so did Kaleb as he had that many points too!

The kids went to see a movie late afternoon - The Candidate. I didn't want to go because I don't like Will Ferrell and he was one of the stars.

We had taquitos and queso for dinner, and then sat on the deck for a while to enjoy the beautiful evening. We even let Muffin come out for a while.

We watched American Reunion, a raunchy movie, which the guys liked. I didn't care for it, and I don't think Kaitlin did either.

Now enjoying a leisurely Sunday. I went to Panera and got bagels for breakfast, now I'm doing the usual laundry and paying bills. Brandon went to play touch football with Brady, and the twins went with Corby to Walmart.

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…
