Playing Catch Up

My planner for the week and some fall/Thanksgiving cards
that I made that I need to get in the mail this week.

This week has been a really strange week for me.  I started to not feel well last week then on Monday morning the pain was so bad I could not get out of bed.  Off to the doctor we go and I am sent for a CAT Scan.  What?  I was diagnosed with kidney stones and a large cyst on my right ovary.  This bought me a week off work and the couch.  I was told to rest and take my pain meds.  So I did absolutely nothing all week.  I binge watched some shows on Netflix and caught up on the current season of some shows on Hulu.  I only slightly feel guilty for not doing anything!  (No genealogy or crafting fun all week but I will share some things I made last week).  I can go back to work on Monday and hopefully the kidney stones have resolved themselves.  The cyst will take some follow up but all should be well.


On another note...sad and happy at the same time!

Yesterday was Hunter's 18th birthday!  What???  Where has the time gone??  We will celebrate with a family party tonight.  (I'm looking forward to some cake!)

Hunter.  From newborn to senior!

I think I wore myself out last week making cookies.  10 hours spent baking and decorating to welcome a new family member coming soon!  It was well worth it!

Sugar cookies for a fall/fox themed baby shower.
Here's to next week being uneventful and allowing me to get back to normal!

How was your week??

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.

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post

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!!
