Same old Crap!

Not much going on here to blog about. I am soooo bored!! I thought I would love being at home...but I don't! I thought I would scrap and just have so much fun during the day while ds was in school. Well...none of that is happening! I have been cross stitching and watching my soaps...but even they are getting boring. I want to scrapbook but I just cannot bring myself to doing it. I have had a LO on my table,started for a while now and I just have no desire to go in there and work on it. What is wrong with me?? I am guessing that I need some new inspiration...where to find it? I did start reading a book today called 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper and Cecil Murphey. My mom got the book for Christmas and loved it and she passed it on to me. I think I am only 20 pages into it but it seems like a really good book. (I'll let you know when I am finished!) So...any one have any ideas to get my creative juices flowing again?? Leave me a comment with your ideas...please!

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…

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division
Attn: Reference Branch 3078 Upshur Avenue Quantico, Virginia 22134.   
I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because I don't sleep} requesting more information a…

Putting Pen to Paper

Over at Anglers Rest Julie Goucher posted Planners, Notebooks & How it Came to be about her planning system.  I thought I would share how I plan and keep track of everything that I do.


As most of you know I use Evernote for my brain but sometimes I just have to write things down.  I have always used some sort of planner.  I even used Evernote for a planner for a while but I missed putting pen to paper.  

There are tons of options for planners.  I currently use a Chic Sparrow Traveler's Notebook.  It is in the Mr. Darcy Leather and the color is a retired color called Mayflower.  {This was gifted to me by a wonderful person and friend...she is the best} I've also grown to love fountain pens but that is a post for another time.  


Inside the front cover there are some sticky pockets with clips and some business cards.  On the right is a dashboard that I made and in the pocket are some stickers.

This is the other side of the dashboard with a picture from our wedding almost 14 …
