1. When I turned ______________, I _________________.

2. My favorite breakfast is ____________________.

3. I’m so glad I live in a world where _________.

4. _________ is not complete without _________.

When I turned around in the high school courtyard, I saw the most amazing blue eyes staring back at me. That was 43 years ago. Time sure has flown by!

My favorite breakfast is pancakes and syrup, but I don’t eat it often because I get sick when I eat pancakes. 

I’m so glad I live in a world where I can learn about anything that I want to learn about without having to even leave the house. 

My day is not complete without at least a little bit of research time. 

And here is a sweet little kitty for Feline Friday.

Of course, genealogy isn’t an obsession or anything!

Friendly Fill-Ins – Week 329 – 16 Sep 2022

Please join Ellen over at 15andMeowing.com and Lorianne at Four-Legged Furballs for Friendly Fill-Ins each Friday. What a fun start to the weekend!

1. _________________ news is _______________.

2. Sometimes I _______________________ to amuse myself.

3. _________ is the reason that I _________.

4. _________ would be my superpower of choice.

Grandbaby news is always exciting news, but not always the good kind of exciting. Sometimes it is a scary kind of excitement. Like now, with our youngest daughter, 10 weeks from her due date. She went to the ER this morning, leaking amniotic fluid and having contractions. Thankfully, there was no dilation yet and the baby looks to be fine. She’s been sent home on even stricter bed rest. Please pray for her safety and the safety of her babies, the one inside as well as the almost-11 month old son that she already has.

Sometimes I watch funny baby and pet videos on YouTube to amuse myself. 

David is the reason that I am still alive.  At the beginning of 2019, that almost was not the case. Because of his stroke in February 2019, I found the strength to endure this life and one of the most emotionally traumatic events of my life. 

Helping people to find the puzzle that they’re meant to be in would be (one of) my superpowers of choice. 

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Friendly Fill-Ins – Week 326 – 26 Aug 2022

Please join Ellen over at 15andMeowing.com and Lorianne at Four-Legged Furballs for Friendly Fill-Ins each Friday. What a fun start to the weekend!

1. I collect _______________________.

2. I recently treated myself to _______________________________.

3. I used to _________ back when _________.

4. Though I have never _________, I have _________.

I collect angels. Almost every year we get a new tree-top angel as a memorial to our angel babies – Grace, Dorian, Heather, and Bobby. 

I recently treated myself to an Audible book called The Seven Daughters of Eve: The Science That Reveals Our Genetic Ancestry, by Bryan Sykes. Next, I am going to treat myself to time to listen to it!

I used to be able to leg press over 700 pounds back when I was 16. Now, I can’t even leg press a marshmallow!

Though I have never been to Ireland in real life, I have been many times in my dreams.

I am having trouble adding images to my posts. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but hopefully I will get it figured out eventually!

Friendly Fill-Ins 19 Aug 2022

Please join Ellen over at 15andMeowing.com and Lorianne at Four-Legged Furballs for Friendly Fill-Ins each Friday. What a fun start to the weekend!

Sorry that I am late again.

1. I would like to see what books are on _______________’s bookshelves. ( Thanks Melissa ).

2. I adore ________________________.

3. There is no amount of money you could pay me to _________.

4. When I failed to _________, I _________.

Ok, so everyone here most likely knows that I am obsessed with family history research and genealogy, and now, DNA and genetic genealogy. I would like to see what books are on the shelves of Andy and Devon Lee of Family History Fanatics, Connie Knox of GenealogyTV, Randy Seaver of Geneamusings, Blaine Bettinger, and CeCe Moore.

I adore our new grandbabies! So far, there’s one boy and one girl and one to be announced arriving in the next few months. I had finally come to accept that we would not live to see grandchildren. Heavenly Father has richly blessed us in allowing us to become grandparents this side of Heaven.

There is no amount of money you could pay me to desert my children. They may do some pretty frustrating things at times, but they will always be my babies and I will be here for them until Heavenly Father calls me home.

When I failed to maintain my sanity in late 2018/early 2019, after the paternity revelation, I did what I could to regain it. It was pretty iffy there for about 4 months. I still have tearful moments, but I’m human and that’s going to happen with a trauma of this magnitude. Thank you all for bearing with me through it all.

=====

The girls and I are working on a surprise and hope to be able to announce it in a few months, if not sooner.

Have a blessed week, all of you!
