Simplify Your Life

While reading some stuff on a few websites I came up with a list...that I plan to add to and change...to simplify my life.

  1. Take a moment each day to be greatful
  2. Make sure to plan time for a vacation each year--give yourself a break and relax
  3. Make time for yourself
  4. Make goals--Keep a list and update as needed
  5. Get organized--will reduce stress
  6. Clean out/Throw out--if you're not using it get rid of it by donating, selling, etc.
  7. "Declutter"--set some guidelines--once a week, once a month, etc.--go room by room and remove the clutter
  8. To do list--helps keep things in "check"--If you don't get it done today dont't stress...just move it to the next day. **I just started this today--I made a list of the things that I need/want to do. I am checking them off as I go. I have a notebook by my computer and I am going to do it for each day...so far it is really helping--4 things checked off already. I am putting both household stuff and scrapping stuff all in the same list.**
  9. Say no instead of yes--don't commit to too many things...if you need to "schedule" things it's time to cut back
  10. **Love this one** Carry a smaller purse--cuts out the clutter. **The best part is that I just bought a really cute "small" purse the other day and LOVE it**

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

  LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that) American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again. A close up! HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next. Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done.  I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch. Enjoy your week! Happy Stitching!!
