Scared

Wow!! I just got home from work a little while ago...it was raining so hard that I could barely see and all the roads are just a mess. I had to take a detour...such a round about way to get home let me tell you...took me about an hour compared to what takes me about 25 mins. normally. The creek behind our house is moving really really fast and it is smaking into the bridge that goes over it. It sure is making some really loud sounds! A tree crashed into it a while ago. So far the power is on...obviously...but who knows for how long! I dont know if Jason will be able to get home from work...he still has a half an hour to go. I called him and ended up crying on the phone because this creek really has me freaked out! It is so strange...I keep getting the flash light and shining it out the back door to see where it is...not like is going to go down or anything...I guess I just keep checking to make sure it is not at the back door. I just keep rambling on and on because I know I will go check it again soon and then just walk all over the house about 50 times...that is not going to help anything! But...I will have some good flood pictures tomorrow...like that is supposed to make me feel any better! I know I feel much better once Jason gets home from work! I need to calm down...just breath deep...nice clensing breths...nope not working...lol

Goodbye Evernote, Hello OneNote

What?  I'm leaving Evernote behind!
As most of you know I have been a huge Evernote supporter from the beginning and I have had a paid membership from the beginning {until October 1st}.There has been a lot of talk about Evernote not lasting much longer because they have been making a lot of changes and letting people go.That got me thinking about what I would do if they did cease to exist.I started looking at all of my options and the best option, for me, is OneNote.I already have it on my computer and it is free.I can use OneNote on my desktop, laptop, phone, and table all for free.I can still use tags {a bit different than what I am use to but it works and I am finding that I really don't need that many tags}.I can still search for things and actually find what I am looking for.I can still clip stuff from the web using the OneNote clipper.I'm currently working on moving notes from Evernote to OneNote.It can be a bit tedious but the process has forced me to look at my note…

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division
Attn: Reference Branch 3078 Upshur Avenue Quantico, Virginia 22134.   
I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because I don't sleep} requesting more information a…

Putting Pen to Paper

Over at Anglers Rest Julie Goucher posted Planners, Notebooks & How it Came to be about her planning system.  I thought I would share how I plan and keep track of everything that I do.


As most of you know I use Evernote for my brain but sometimes I just have to write things down.  I have always used some sort of planner.  I even used Evernote for a planner for a while but I missed putting pen to paper.  

There are tons of options for planners.  I currently use a Chic Sparrow Traveler's Notebook.  It is in the Mr. Darcy Leather and the color is a retired color called Mayflower.  {This was gifted to me by a wonderful person and friend...she is the best} I've also grown to love fountain pens but that is a post for another time.  


Inside the front cover there are some sticky pockets with clips and some business cards.  On the right is a dashboard that I made and in the pocket are some stickers.

This is the other side of the dashboard with a picture from our wedding almost 14 …
