Every now and then I stop and think about my life and where I am now. How many friends and family I have lost. How many I've lost touch with and how many are incapable of taking care of themselves.
I daydream that I'm sleeping and wake up ten years old, living with my parents up north. Just try to explain that you are a 60 year old in a 10 year old body.
I'd love to go back and see the old house and neighborhood. The house has been torn down and now there is a highway going across where our yard use to be.
Would I tell people things I know, so they won't make their mistakes again? Or should I let their futrue play out as planne?
That would be hard. 9/11, assasinationn of presidents and other famous people.
They wouldn't believe me.
My parents would be amazed at how I had changed over night, the things I know, how I act, not like a 10-year old.
What I would really like to do is go back to the 1880s or early 1900 to see my little town of
E. Liverpool, Ohio. It was a lot more lively. Now the down town is dead. Most stores closed or moved to another part of the city that is building up. It is still a small town, though.
Oh well, just mind wondering.
I should write a script. ,

My husband and I weigh in on Saturdays. I stayed the same in my weigh in on my BLC team. In fact I've been the same, 107, for the past 3 weeks. The day after weigh in I lost one pound. Now I weigh in and I'm 109, gained 3 pounds in two days.
What gives? I ate salads. Could it be the pot tart that I ate for evening snack?
Doesn't seem logical.
Mopping over that fact while writing out my team schedule, I get a call from my friend. Our friend, Marie, was just put in hospice. Her birthday is this coming Saturday the 12th. She'll be 102 years old. That is awesome. Still sad.
I'm worrying about 3 pounds and my friend is dying. I haven't seen her since her last birthday party, which was held here. I couldn't get out since I have my mom here. At least my mom got to meet her.
Marie has a daughter who has had Alzheimer for quite a while. She is in a nursing home and expected to die anytime.
Sometimes I get so frustrated with my mom, but if anything happened to her, I'd have such regrest that I didn't show more love, instead of nagging her to do her exercises so she'll have a better quality of life.
Sometimes you have to put life into perspective and see what is important.

Tried taking my own picture to put as profile since I got a new hair cut. I should have enhanced the picture to make it clear before I put it on. Duh! Seems like I've changed my profile pix 3 or 4 times, well, 3 times at least. No, I'm not vain, just not learned in the art of downloading decent pictures. Haven't seen this latest one on a thread, so who knows, I may change it again.

I received the family tree info my cousin was working on. He sent it all bound up and printed out sheets of the family tree charts. There are a couple differences between what he has and what a friend on a message board worked out for me. Now, who is correct. I think I found the place that the difference accured. I don't know if they each followed a different sibling or what. I also think one has an extra generation than my cousin has in his records.
If people back then had a couple children instead of 8 - 10, it would be easier making a family tree. lol
I guess it made life easier on the farms having more kids to help with the chores.

My newest hobby...making my family tree. It is a lot harder than I thought it'd be. I've got so many lines; Culps, Leighs, TenEycks. I'm stuck trying to find my next line in the Gallaway family.
I want to find stories about the family. Has any been in the Civil War, Revolutionary War, War of 1812, backyard scrimish between friends. Anythng besides dates.
I may branch out and find info on their siblings families instead of just doing my direct line-parent to child.
Anyone have any tips and tactics on how to find people, please let me know. I'm checking census records, some death records. Sometimes I only have half the info I need to request a record.
Isn't that a catch-22? You need info, but to get the info, you need info to request the info. Duh!
I've got a headache.
