My Family History Life - 02/16/08

We had the boys overnight, so I didn't get as much sleep as usual... Lucas slept the night, but Logan woke me up at 2 and then at 5:30 for good, so I was real cranky this afternoon. My wife, daughter and both boys said so. In my "ancient of days," I am upset by messiness and inefficiency - oh Lord, please grant me patience, and I want it now!

We got going this morning and went to the San Diego Zoo on a nice San Diego mid-winter day - blue skies, 65F, lots of happy people. The boys really liked the skyride. We watched the polar bears, ducks and swans, wild boars and giant pandas before having lunch. Then we rode the moving walkway up to the monkey mesa and watched the orangutans for half an hour. The big wooly guy came and sat next to the window right where we were - the boys thought he was real funny. We got home after 1 p.m., and all attempts at getting the boys to go down for a nap were futile. I really wanted one myself, which I finally got at 4 p.m. thanks to Linda, who took care of them while I was cranky and sleepy. We went out for a walk and threw whiffle balls around before visiting our elderly neighbors to show off the boys. Their mom came back from her overnight stay and baby shower at 6 p.m., and we went down to the pizza parlor for dinner.

Genealogy today? Not a whole lot! I managed to read email and Bloglines at times during the day, and posted "Letters from home - post 11" on Genea-Musings this morning (pre-written) and finally got on the computer tonight at 8 p.m. and posted "Genea-Musings Limericks - mine" (also pre-written, but heavily edited tonight). I spent a little time searching for "Best of" blog posts since I've been off my normal routine this week. Absolutely no real research!

My time today was all of 2.5 hours - 1.0 hour reading email and bloglines, and 1.5 hours blogging.
