Lessons learned in 2018:

Lessons learned in 2018:

– Tell the people you care about that you love them. It has been 22 years since my grandma passed and 12 since my grandpa & mom passed. They passed away 3 months apart.

– Tell people when you miss them.

– Hug them when you see them and hug them before you leave.

– Yes, getting that call back about something being spotted in your mammogram is scary but schedule your appointment anyways.

– Wear sunscreen! That chemo cream on your face, around your eye is no joke! It felt like holes were burnt into my face.

– Be kind to your knees! You’ll miss them when they are gone.

– Know what you are allergic to! Removing Gold and reducing dust has made a world of difference….. Plus no more Fruit Loops for me 🤮

– Know that great loves have come and gone. Wish them best. Hope that they find what they are looking for. Move on. There are other people who need you in their lives.

– Don’t take for granted your family. One day they might get tired and move on as well.

– Finally, pick your battles! Life is too short to be miserable and hateful.

Easy dry/wet wipe

As some of us have already started planning for next school year there are a couple of things to think about.

  • Anything smooth could be used as a dry/wet wipe surface
  • Clear contact paper is an awesome away to either laminate your stuff and/or convert something to a smooth surface for dry/wet wipe.
  • Picture frames & placemats are a wonderful dry/wet wipe surface.
  • Yes, Pinterest in an amazing repository of creative solutions but look around you in your daily life and you will be inspired by those around you.

A free solution to your password problem

There are so many podcasts out there with such great information and ‘The Computer Tutor’ is one of favorites. Back in 2012 host Scott Johnson wrote a post about the use of LastPass as your password vault. If you’re not using a password vault system you should take a moment and read his post.




What is Sketchnoting?

According to Sketchnote Army, “Sketchnotes are purposeful doodling while listening to something interesting. Sketchnotes don’t require high drawing skills, but do require a skill to visually synthesize and summarize via shapes, connectors, and text. Sketchnotes are as much a method of note taking as they are a form of creative expression.
