Rex leaves to come home tomorrow! I wonder if he had time to download it before he leaves for his flight!

General Discussion / Re: what is YOUR temple and why???
« on: October 27, 2017, 06:27:58 pm »
I don't have a favorite temple. I like different temples for different reasons. Logan, UT because that is where Rex asked me to marry him. Manti where we were narried. Gilbert, AZ after guiding people in tours there. Mesa, because my kid have their "people" there.

We go to most of the time, but it soon will close temporarily so we will go to Gilbert, though since I go to Phoenix often I may go there sometimes.

The last 11 years the new close temples have actually been built further away from us than the temples we were going to. Lol I just realized it has now happened twice - the temple district has been broken into 3 and the old temples were the closest of eacharge trio.

I'm hoping it works out as well.

If you use Chrome:

Click on the little vertical line of three dots in the upper right corner. Click on Settings.  A new tab will open. On that page, scroll down to the bottom and click Advanced.  Scroll down again to click on Manage Passwords. Hopefully you see a list of websites, your login names, and a bunch of asterisks ( * ) in the Password column. Click the vertical line of dots to the right of the login you want to find, and click Details. A popup window appears, click the eyeball icon. You may have to enter your Windows password to see the info.

I'm not sure what to think about that.  lol I knew they were store somewhere which is why I have tried to be careful of just which ones I was storing, but having them all there in a line is a little disconcerting..

It did solve another problem for me though.  One I had on my list of things to do.  At LDS.org we have had built up quite a list of accidentally saving usernames and passwords that didn't actually work.  So for example if my lds.org username was "Patty Rain" we had also somehow saved  "Pa" and "Pat" that were just part of my username. And it wasn't just me.  There were several in the family with the same problem. I wanted to get rid of those and now I have! Thanks!

I sort of accidentally deleted all my data from my phone which deleted my passwords.  Apparently I don't remember what my password is.  So I did the forget password thing (now twice) and it isn't sending me an email or anything.

I'd log out from here on the computer and try it on the computer, but I'm afraid that if it doesn't  send it to me when doing it here I won't get back in.  Any chance I can recover my password in some other way?

Don't change your record till you have the phone or address of everyone you want from your old ward!  My husband did that here, not knowing I wanted that info.

I'm glad you have the opportunity.  :)  I hope it doesn't mean we see less of you, but would understand.

General Discussion / Perspective changes
« on: October 09, 2017, 01:08:42 pm »
I always hate when people say things like,  "just be grateful you have food. The people in India don't."  It isn't really listening to the person and empathizing with them and it rarely works. Sometimes things, even little things, are hard and it is ok to acknowledge that.

My husband is in France for work.  We got a text from his coworker saying there was an emergency and then texts saying not to worry, but no idea what the problem was. Then I emailed another coworker and same thing. Then I found out he was in the hospital and still didn't know what the problem was. 

Now, I wasn't terribly worried,  but I did want to know what was going on.  I posted on Facebook about what was happening.

A little while later I found out he had kidney stones and was feeling much better.

Then one of my friends posted to my posted that it must have been scary and she was glad everything was ok.

And my whole perspective changed like that...

See, just one year ago she got one of those emergency contacts and her husband wasn't ok. He died. I'm guessing my post brought up memories for her, but she said nothing about her situation. She just was caring enough to listen to me about our situation.

I hope to be like her some day.

I'm on the edge of getting tickets to go to Grenada. Gavin wanted somewhere tropical. We thought about Hawaii, but it is more than twice as many frequent flier miles as we have. So finally figured after searching searching that Grenada might be it. The thing that stopped me? Going other places with miles and government fees we could get a ticket for about $6. The fess are so high for Grenada that it will cost us $84 each. Now that isn't much for the trip, but having the frequent flier miles paying for it, it just about kills me it is so high! It is not an easy it energy either. Hmm.

Goody - I don't know what you had to do, but I understand loving your child enough to do it.  Year and a half ago Erma Bombeck's "I loved you enough to say no" really helped me feel not alone.  http://www.chicagonow.com/between-us-parents/2013/07/erma-bombeck-say-n/ 

Things did become worse afterwards and it was very hard. Sending hugs your way to get through it.

No guarantee that mother would have lived with the chemo, especially long enough to raise the children.  Seems to me that if she died in six months of learning about it, the chemo would only be a temporary delay.  We really don't know enough to be able to assess this for her.

And we don't know what quality of life she would have.  She may not have been able to give anything to get children and been more of a burden to her husband having to cate for her on top of the kids.

That's why I will never judge what should be done in these situations. There are too many unknowns both ways and I have no ability to get inspiration for them so I will be supportive of whatever way they choose.
