Ever wonder what they're doing?

Yeah, sometimes I do too. I wonder what the family members and friends in Louisville and Lexington are up to. So I thought I'd check in.

Steve's in the middle of drawing up documents for Tony, Clayton, Vic, and Bart. You'll have to read the next book to find out what that's about, but it's good for everyone.

Tony's busy on the new business project, and he's thinking about hiring someone to work for him who'll make his life a whole lot easier. He's also thinking about Nikki, about how he'd taken partial retirement to spend more time with her, and he's spending even less time working on the facility. He's hoping that putting more employees in place will give him some breathing room, because he'd rather be at home with her than standing in the middle of a construction site, even if it is his construction site.

Nikki's thinking ahead to Vic and Laura's wedding. She's been helping Laura put the guest list together, which is pretty easy, but Vic's insistent that Laura's mom and dad be involved, and Laura's balking. And poor Nikki's trying to keep them both happy. But she thinks she's got it figure out.

Vic's arranging for Laura's wedding gift. He's ordering her a custom-painted Volvo SUV like the one Nikki had before it was wrecked and burned. He wants her to be safe out on the highway, and if it comes in and is ready earlier, he won't wait until their wedding day to give it to her. He wants her to have it NOW. But the paint job's holding it up . . .

Laura's spending a awful lot of time with that Kindle Paperwhite that Vic gave her for Christmas. He hasn't really paid much attention but, if he had, he'd find out she's bought all kinds of books on BDSM and she's reading like crazy, not just "how-to" books, but fiction too. She's getting all kinds of ideas, but she's still a little shy about approaching him about all of it. She's also scared to death that he's going to get bored with her. That'll never happen, but she's not so sure.

José's sister is driving him crazy. He got a call from social services in Cook County about his youngest siblings. If he could get his fingers around Rosita's neck, no telling what he'd do to her.

Peyton's helping his mom and dad move - since he bought his house, they're moving to a smaller one. He hates to see them sell the home he grew up in, but they don't need a house that big anymore, especially with no grandkids on the horizon.

Clayton's making plans to take Brittany away on a little trip. Their sex life has really suffered since they adopted Anthony and Ella Jane, and he wants them to have some hot and heavy one-on-one time. Tony's assured him that they'll be glad to keep the kids for a weekend, even a four-day weekend. He's hoping Brittany will be excited when she finds out.

Katie's getting more miserable by the day. Being pregnant isn't her idea of fun. Sometimes she wishes Annabeth could understand why she's so short-tempered and tired. They have decided, though, that once the baby comes, Annabeth's going to carry the next one. The big question is, who'll be the sperm donor? They've got someone in mind if they can talk him into it.

Molly's going to her favorite deli to pick up some lunch for her and Vic, and then she's going to a reading circle this evening. She's decided her life is boring, but she doesn't know what to do to fix it.

And Kelly's worried. There are rumors that some of them at the agency are going to lose their jobs. She's identified a group of clients that they could help - people who are paying way too much for their insurance. She's putting together a spreadsheet to show to Ken, her boss, to see if he'll let her pursue some cost-saving measures for them and hopefully get them to refer others to their company. Maybe that would make her more valuable to the company.

They're all working hard. I am too, trying to get the next book out to you. It's almost here, so hang in there!
