Grammy night on Flipboard

What's trending!

Today on my Flipboard the topic that popped out to me was "Is Googling making us forgetful?" I think so. I already have issues with memory because I have had a concussion and did a lot of drugs. I can see where just being able to pull up an answer to whatever, and not have to work hard for it, or need to retain it would eventually change the way your brain remembers things. Just my thoughts.


This would be me, trying to come up with ideas. I decided to go back through older posts and see if they are worth changing up a little and adding onto.
Well I found this post about Flipboard and thought I could share what comes up as I'm scrolling. 
I have started using Flipboard more since I found that I can publish my blog posts to it via my phone.

So with the Grammy's being on, that's really all you will find on social media. I could've talked about politics but that is NOT my vibe!

Who WON?

There were lots of my picks to win.
Best Pop Album:   Taylor Swift 1989 

There were also some that I hadn't even heard of yet.
Best Rap Song: Alright; Kendrick Lamar

The performances were pretty good also. The tributes were spot on as always, my favorite was Stevie Wonder and Penatonix.

Of course the awards are not only about the music it's about the clothes too! I missed the pre-show so I only got to see what they showed.

Getting more done today!

Yesterday was a scary waiting type of day. My father in law was in the hospital with chest pains. All the tests took FOREVER. It all turned out clear and he was sent home but it's hard to wait when something could be really wrong. I ended up eating a whole thing of Ben & Jerry's ice didn't help.


I tried working on it yesterday but my head just wasn't in it. Today I started with the Shanks who needed some redoing. I went to pull them up on my trees and all the info is different so after an hour I gave up. I printed out what I could prove and then stapled the old papers to it so if I come back some day and get new info. I'm moving on to the Beachy line. They are some of the Mennonites. It gets confusing because they all have the same names!!

Did you say studying!

Yea I got up a little late today so I did not get to crack my Bible. I told a friend about how it was hard for me to read and she suggested an Institute Bible study guide that I could order through Deseret books. I'm going to look into it because I have a feeling with all my good intentions of finishing this by the end of the won't happen. On the bright side the Planned Parenthood book sale is this weekend so I'm going to go look and see if I can't find something fun.


I got one bracelet made today. I'm going to give it as a Christmas present so I can't show the picture I took of it but I'm going to work on some more this weekend after I get some glue and more charms.

I sit here trying to write this as my Husky Oreo is yelling at me. I feel for anyone else who has such an opinionated animal. There are days where I really wish I only had my fish to worry about! 
                                    Off to watch some Bones! Have a wonderful night.

Needs inspiration

Manic Monday!

I had a different day today. Abby came to keep me company and she was in a foul mood. I wish I could make her happy. I feel like I'm failing her some days.
So my week isn't starting off that great. After the stressful weekend I just can't pull myself out of this funk! I am putting back on weight. WOW that sounds depressing!! Not going to focus on the negative.

I came across some interesting stuff in my Bible studies this morning. WOW. I did not expect to be reading about homosexuality in the Bible but there it was. Weird...

I did not get any genealogy done today because I got sucked into binge watching Netflix!

I really did not get anything done today out of my resolutions other than Bible study. I don't know what my problem is. I need some motivation to get out of this funk. I think I am going to follow the advice of this and make sure to keep reminding myself that being depressed is not good for the soul.

It's a blah day

Lessons from the week

I do not suggest that after 2 years of not drinking that you dive right in like you never quit! I am feeling it today. Not like I got drunk but just the little bit did me in. I weighed myself this morning and I was up 2 lbs in a day so it made me wonder if that was some of my problem getting weight off? It's something I'll have to watch.

Make sure to keep an eye on your bank account when you have automatic withdraws coming out or you will end up at a restaurant waiting for your in-laws to bring you cash cause your debit card wont work! I hate having issues with money but I took it in stride and rolled with it.


I have been sucked right back into doing my genealogy work. It really is such a great hobby and am so glad it came into my life. I am extending my tree from just the direct line to all the cousins and their families. As I am doing that if I come across a fun tidbit I am looking it up and trying to find more. I have yet to do some research on the Mennonites like I had wanted to but the days not over yet.

My jewelry has yet to be started but I have it and I have some ideas floating around so one night this week I'll devote it to starting.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!! Happy thoughts for the week ahead.
