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.

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…

The Great Genealogy Shape Up of 2018!

For most of 2017, I spent my genealogy time cleaning up my database in Legacy Family Tree.  I'm still working on cleaning up messes from when I first started my family tree.  For 2018, I plan to continue cleaning up my database.  I would also like to finish adding all Find A Grave information to my database as well.  
Find A Grave is a great place to find leads to research.  Legacy makes it very easy to find everyone in your database who do not have Find A Grave memorials.  

Click the drop-down arrow on the Find A Grave icon and it gives you the following options:



I selected create a list of people without a Find A Grave Memorial and I got a nice LONG list of people.  From this list, I have been able to find more ancestors to research and add to my database.
My other goal for 2018 is to find the people in my database who do not have a source {yes, I said without a source.  Gasp!} Legacy also makes it very easy to find these people.  You want to click on Search {in the image of the…
