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!!

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.

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…

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!!
