Tuesday Time to Tackle: Everything!


  original source


That pretty much sums up my to-do list for the day.  :-)  I spent the morning with a pad of post-it notes and a pile of paperwork.  Now that I have my to-do list more organized, I should be able to get my mind off of shuffle.  

How do you handle long to-do lists?

  1. I get overwhelmed with long lists, so I try hard to focus on three or four items.

  2. I prefer to ignore the long ones. :)

    Really, I have to organize the list into smaller ones.

  3. I use Google Tasks and I don't think I've ever had a day when I got to check everything off the list. Maybe someday!

  4. Divide a long list in 2 or 3 smaller ones or if that's too hard to do, just start on the top and work my way down. I love making lists and crossing off everything I already did. Sometimes I'm sneaky and put something on the list that's already done, just so I can cross something of at the beginning. Silly maybe, but it works for me....

  5. My lists are more timed goal, finish laundry and put clothes away by Thursday - plant flowers and clean yard by mother's day (does that make sense ) then broken done by categories, house, cleaning, shopping -
    Now hubby always has a to do list for his day off (makes one himself) - and usually it is left on the counter top, if I see it I always add to the list - hug wifey, when you are at the store buy something nice for wifey, tell wifey you love her - things like that LOL
    Good to hear you are not on shuffle - :)

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement. 
I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me.
My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis.
When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a parent of one of my dad's students. 
Hello, Mrs. _______. How can I help you? . . . (an irate woman's voice is h…
