Genealogy work today was hit and miss. I was on the computer at 8:30 a.m., and read my email and blogs. I posted "Genealogy Link Site Traffic" on Genea-Musings. Then I worked on writing posts for the next week while we're gone to Santa Cruz. At 10:30, I gathered the papers and went off to the copy shop to copy the handouts for the seminar, then took my income taxes to the post office, and had lunch at Costco before picking up my friend George for our weekly walk on the bayfront. I stopped by the library on the way home.
I checked my email and blogs again, and posted the "45th Carnival of Genealogy is Posted - Cars!" Then I worked on more blog posts for next week. I did a bit of research for the seminar research problems too. Linda came home with dinner at 5:15 p.m., so I ate and came back to the computer at about 6:15. I posted "Ranked Matches in the Ancestry.com New Search" on Genea-Musings. I watered the plants, then settled down to watch the Padres game with my laptop. I read the blogs, read my political news sites and reviewed/edited my presentation for the last time while watching the game (Pads lost to Dodgers, 7-1). I transferred the revised file to my flash drive, and then came to the desktop and copied it onto that computer too. I got all of my "stuff" for the seminar tomorrow either in the car or in my laptop case. I'm ready!
Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 1.0 hour reading and writing emails, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 3.0 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours researching problems, and 1.0 hour working on my presentation. Enough!
I have a big day tomorrow - I have a breakfast at 8 a.m., and the seminar is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. I'll rush home and we leave on the 6:45 p.m. flight to San Jose, where we'll pick up my daughter's car and drive to Santa Cruz. We'll be there for over a week - I come home on Sunday, 4/13. This blog will probably be dormant until 4/14, although I'll be posting on Genea-Musings on a daily basis.
