Surgery went well

Just wanted to leave a quick not to let you all know that my surgery went well yesterday. I am still a little soar from the surgery but the pain meds work wonders. I won't know anything for a few weeks but as soon as I do I will post a note to let you all know what is going on.

Thanks for all your love and support!!

EVERNOTE


EVERNOTE

<---click div="" find="" here="" more.="" out="" to="">I have been using this for a while now and I often wonder how I lived without it! Now my email inbox does not stay full, I simply email anything important to my Evernote account and delete the rest. Then I go to Evernote and find the notes and tag and move them to the correct notebook. It is soooo easy to find things that you put in Evernote by using tags and searching.


I use 7 notebooks to keep me organized. Everything goes into my inbox and from there I tag and move the notes to other notebooks. My other note books are To Do, Shannon Thomas Photography, Personal/Family, Cross Stitch, Reference and Share. The To Do notebook should be self explanatory. In this notebook I use the check boxes in my notes. I have a note for every month and I just add to it when things come up. The Shannon Thomas Photography is used for my photography business. I keep all emails and any other information in here until they are no longer needed and then they get moved to the Refrence notebook. The Personal/Family notebook holds medical info, household info, shopping lists, gift ideas, etc in there. Cross stitch is a big hobbie of mine so I had to have just one notebook for all my cross stitch stuff. There are free charts, thread lists, shopping lists, etc in there. You can put pdf files in Evernote also. The reference notebook holds everything else or the notes that are no longer needed in the other notebooks. The Share notebook holds any notes that I want to share with others on my Evernote page on the web. The best part is that you can use it on your desktop, on your phone, and on the web. You can get it from EVERYWHERE!!


Lots of people use Evernote and in many different ways for many different reasons. Here are two links that talk about how people use Evernote.




There is so much that you can do, you just have to give it a try!

If you already use or you give it a try let me know how it works for you!

25 things about me

Donna had this posted on her blog and I thought I would play along. So here are 25 things about me.

  1. I have the most wonderful husband in the whole world. He is very supportive and does so much for me. I LOVE him very very much.
  2. My son is the best surprise I ever got. He was not planned but he is the BEST thing ever.
  3. I have two wonderful dogs. Gunner is a beagle and Meg is a chocolate lab.
  4. I love to take pictures. I love my camera and what I see through it.
  5. I love tea, hot or iced, it does not matter!
  6. Eeyore is my favorite character.
  7. I love to cross stitch
  8. and scrapbook.
  9. My mom is my best friend..I tell her everything and I talk to her at least once a day (sometimes more).
  10. My dh and I were married in Florida on the beach...it was one of the best days of my life.
  11. On May 10th we will be married for 5 years but we have been together for 10 +/- a few.
  12. I just watched the movie Happy Gilmore and I kinda liked it.
  13. I love the Anne of Green Gables series and I am dying to go to Prince Edward Island, Novascotia.
  14. I was very lucky to have my Great Grandparents alive until I was into my teenage years. My Great Grandfather passed away the summer before my senior year in highschool. He was the best man I have ever known!! I miss him more than I can explain!!
  15. I did not get my drivers license until I was 18. I always had a boyfriend to drive me around.
  16. During high school I lived with my Aunt and Uncle and helped her with my great grandfather and helped take care of my two cousins.
  17. I had an awful time turning 30 and said I would not have anymore birthdays. It sounds so dumb now... but I am still 29 and holding.
  18. I cry VERY easily. Jason often teases me and will give me the box of tissues.
  19. I have the craziest sleeping schedule. I sleep when I want and for hours and hours at a time. Even days at a time.
  20. A lot of my friends are having babies and I am totally jealous of them because I would give anything to have a baby with Jason.
  21. I have fibromyalgia and it really really sucks. Some days are fine and then others I just want to give up and would do anything to get rid of the pain.
  22. I take way too much medication and wish I could just stop taking it all.
  23. I love all colors but right now I am leaning toward purple and I think I am going to paint my scrapbook room purple.
  24. I am going to also paint Hunter's room green because he loves anything army and wants an army green room.
  25. I wanted to be a Special Education teacher but I did not finish college. I kick myself in the a@@ every day. I should have let nothing at all stop me from what I wanted to do but I did!!

Freaked out!!

Yesterday was a loooong day!! I spent the day at the hospital with my dad. He needed to have a PET Scan done. He drank the yucky stuff and then we sat and he drank some more and then we sat and he had his last drink. They hooked him up to the IV and stuck him in the machine and he freaked out!! While all of this was going on I was stitching away in the waiting room unaware of his freak out. They came out and said it would be about another hour and he would be done. In 20 mins he was out and said lets go. I said all done...he says for now. Then he goes on to tell me about his episode. He was supposed to be scanned from his thigh to his forehead they did not even get his whole chest done and he said that he said "get me the hell out of here!!" I have no idea if it will need to be redone or what so we are just waiting to see. The tech said he was not bad. He said that they have people who get in there and scream that they are killing them so I guess it really wasn't all that bad!!

I did get some stitching done...I am almost done with my exchange stitching. I will probably work on that for the rest of tonight and hopefully will have it all done.

Tomorrow we are supposed to get SNOW!! I am supposed to have a drs appointment in the am but we will see how bad the roads are. DH will be taking me so it probably will not matter as he will drive in anything.

No stitchy pictures to show but maybe tomorrow I will have some.

I'm back!!

Yes, I am back from blogging vacation. First, we had a wonderful Christmas is sunny Florida with Jason's family. I really did not want to come home...it was so nice and warm! I have LOTS of pics to go through...they are still on my camera (totally unlike me if you know me at all)!! New Year's Eve was a little different this year. Normally we have a party with friends at our house and then on New Year's Day we go to my grandparents for lunch with family. This year on New Year's Eve we had dinner at our house with some GREAT friends and then we headed out to a resturant that another friend works at. The resturant is closing and being their last night she had to work. It was so much fun...I had way too much to drink and paid heavily for it!! We did not have our traditional dinner on New Year's Day since we had it a few days earlier while my uncle was in from California. All in all we had a wonderful time this Holiday season!!

Tomorrow my dad goes into surgery to remove some skin cancer. He had surgery once to have the mole removed and now they are going back in to remove some more to make sure that they have gotten it all. He will also be having a test done on his lymphnodes and a possilbe biopsy on some of the lymphnodes. Depending what showes up with the lymphnodes he may have to have surgery yet again. Please keep him and us in your thoughts and prayers.

I will be stitching while I am waiting for him tomorrow...hopefully I will get something done to take my mind off of things!!

I do have some pics to share that I took in the fall of Hunter. I did not share them because I was saving them for Christmas gifts for everyone. So here they are. The one that we used as gifts is the one in the middle.

***of course blogger is not cooperating...will add them later***
