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.

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!!

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
