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!!

5 Tips to Break Down Your Brick Wall

Originally posted at Lost Tree Project as a guest post February 2019.

Eventually we all hit a brick wall.  My first brick wall was with Joseph Thomas {my husband's 3rd great grandfather} I spent months searching.  Brick walls can last weeks to months to years.  Below are some quick tips to help you break through that brick wall.

Research another ancestor for a while and then go back to your brick wall .  You will see your brick wall ancestor with new eyes.Use a checklist to see if you missed any records.  {You can find my Evernote Research Checklist in my shared genealogy notebook.}Revisit your research.  Maybe you missed a piece of information in a document.  Maybe something seemed like it wasn't important but now that you have more information you find it is important.Learn something new.  It does not need to be genealogy related.  When you shift your thinking to something else and then go back to the brick wall you are li…

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…
