My Family History Life - 02/14/08

This was not a genealogy day, but it was a Family History day. You'll see what I mean!

I was on the computer at 8:45 a.m. reading email and Bloglines, and then I posted the "Letters from home - Post 9" on Genea-Musings. That was quickly followed by "A Valentine's Day Gift" about how I proposed to Linda in 1970.

I went shopping for flowers at 10:15 a.m., and found a nice dozen for a reasonable price. I had lunch and shopped at Costco, then went to the library for a half hour, and finally came home. I talked on the phone to a fellow who saw a brief article in the San Diego Union-Tribune about our CVGS program in two weeks. He wanted to contact our speaker.

I needed to get ready to pick up Lori and the boys at the airport at 3 p.m. I found one car seat and got it in my car, but the second one was in Linda's car. She came home about 2 and I put it in my car. Then it was off to the airport in the rain, and their plane was about 15 minutes late (others were 2 hours late!). We got wet getting back to the car, and then traffic was a mess - I stayed off the freeways - it took 45 minutes to get the 12 miles home. I played with the boys, then we brought in Chinese food for dinner, and the boys watched some TV and took their bath before bedtime. The hugs and kisses are great! See - family history, not genealogy!

It wasn't until 9:30 that I was able to get back on the computer and write my Carnival of Genealogy post, which i'll probably post tomorrow.

Genealogy today was limited to 3.0 hours - 1.0 hours reading email and Bloglines, and 2.0 hours blogging.

The next four days may be limited to reading and blogging also - we have things planned for the boys - we go to Legoland on Friday, and Linda and I have the boys by ourselves Friday night when Lori stays over with her friends and goes to a baby shower on Saturday.
