Stuff & Things. And Easter.  
Hey, gang! So, about the LJ/DW thing. I am going to switch over to DW. Probably not for a few weeks here though. I don’t have one already - because I am very behind the times - but since my LJ anniversary is on May 13th, I figure it would be easiest to switch to DW then, so that can be my anniversary over there too. (It also happens to be The Nephew’s birthday, which wasn’t on purpose that I made my first post that day, but it does help me to remember the date!)

I am paid up on my LJ account until July, I think, so I am certainly staying here until then. Whether I decide to delete my account after that is still up in the air. Most of you have made the migration, but not all of you, and not all of you that I talk to regularly, so I am undecided about deleting or not. And once over on DW, I am lazy and don’t want to go look for communities to cross-post fic at, so after that I’ll probably just post on AO3 - (same name over there already) - and just link to it from DW.

Anyway, I’ll let you know when I’m up on DW and I’ll search for all your names over there and friend you if I find you - (though if you see this and want to link me your page, that’d be awesome!). I’m also on Tumblr and I’ll be getting a Twitter here soon. Once my DW is up, I’ll make a post with links to all of my pages!

For Easter, we stopped doing things with our family - we used to do breakfast with Mom’s and lunch with Dad’s - a few years back, three or four, maybe. But recently we had a work-friend of my sister’s over to teach her to play euchre, since her boyfriend’s family plays and she wanted to learn. We were telling people about the big holiday euchere tournaments we used to have at The Farm, in between supper and pie; four or five tables, the kids banished to the basement until they were old enough to learn to play - (I learned at nine, so I didn’t have to go to the basement with the little kids anymore!). Neighbors and friends of us kids and whatnot would stop over for pie and to join the euchre games. “You got some pie? Playing euchre? Yeah, yeah, I can stay a bit.”

We got nostalgic, so we invited some cousins over Saturday night to play some euchre. Just six of us, but it was fun. My one cousin was complaining though, because we don’t have any regular playing cards. We have Firefly cards, Spiderman cards and Scooby-Doo cards, but no regular old plain playing cards. I don’t know why she way surprised by this, lol!

That was our little Easter celebration. I hope all of your weekends were good as well!

Sounds like fun! My daughter, grandson and I had a lovely roast dinner and played Yahtzee. Quiet, yeah but we had a great time. Sometimes that is what you need and with all you've had going on the year or so sounds like this was what you needed! Sometimes the simple things are the best! Glad you had a great Holiday and please remind us when you go to DW! HUGS!

Oh, Yahtzee is a good one! I play that through an app. No one IRL ever wants to play - my moms says, "I don't like to do math, sweetie!" LOL As kids though, my family used to have Boggle night. The adults played Boggle and us kids played Junior Boggle.

and please remind us when you go to DW! HUGS!

My LJ account is apparently paid up until December 24, so I don't have to decide what to do about this account until then. But I am over on DW now. Cross-posting everything for now. Just friended you!

That's so clever. I'm still on LJ, but back up my journal to DW. I check my friends list over there every day so I don't miss any posts.

Well, my plan to have it up by the 13th failed, do to having the niblings that day because of my little brother's foster-brother's funeral. But I did do my first post on May 31, so hopefully that'll be easy to remember.

I am on there now and just friended you! Everything is cross-posted on LJ though, at least through Christmas when my LJ account comes up for renewal and then we'll see. <3

I plan to stay here but am trying to keep in touch with LJ friends who have moved to DW.

Just wanted to let you know that I am up and running on DW, but my LJ account doesn't come up for renewal until December 24th, so until then, everything will continue to be crossposted. After that, we'll see - may delete or may just go to free account. I am also up on Facebook now and will be doing a post with all of my new social media accounts soon. I won't share my real name most places, but I know all of you and would love to follow you on other sites as well. You could help boost my book when it comes out, as it is all about our furry family and I know you are on animal boards and contests on Facebook.

That sounds fun and I'm the name on DW as over here. I had lunch with my father's cousin and her husband who live in Boston and brought home a lot of leftover ham.

I Love ham, but nobody makes it quite like my grandpa did!

Just followed you on DW! Will be here at least through December 24, as am paid up. After that we'll see.

Gosh, I haven't thought about euchre in years. My grandfather loved it and used to organize games at all our family get togethers. I never learned the game though, I suppose because I was too young.

I have the same user name at Dreamwidth and will gladly friend you when you get there.

Yes, my grandpa loved it too. Even the first year or so he was in the nursing home, we'd call around to make sure we had four people and then head out there on a Saturday afternoon to play Euchre with him in his room!

I learned at about age 8. During the tournaments at holiday dinners, if you didn't know how to play, you had to go to the basement, with the TV and the toys. I got tired of being sent to the basement with the 'babies'. I was a big kid! I could play too! So my big brother taught me.

I just friended you on DW! I am here at least until December 24, as that is when my account gets renewed (or not, will see what I decide), so everything is crossposted for awhile at least.

I learned to swim because I got tired of being left on the beach while everyone else swam out to the float.

I saw that you friended me at DW and I friended you back.

Hiya :). Just wanted to let you know that I'm afra_schatz over at DW as well, and I'd love to stay friends with you there as well :)!

Just friended you on DW! Looks like my LJ account is paid up until December 24, so I'm here at least until then and then I'll have to decide what I want to do. If I stay it'll be under a free account as I loath the idea of giving the **ssians money, which I know is silly, as it's not like LJ is run by the government. Mostly I worry if I post about LGBTQA or politics here, I may get deleted, so DW is good to have a backup. ;)
