We're back from Santa Cruz. I was able to read my email and Bloglines every day there, and post my pre-written Genea-Musings blog posts, but that was about it. I spent an hour or so each day, but rarely more, due to the press of running the lives of two darling little boys. As an example, today I posted "The Elusive Philip Jacob Rau/Row ..." this morning in about two minutes.
I got home at 3 p.m. today from the airport, and we had a computer problem. There was no Internet connection on the desktop or the laptop. I called Cox and the automated trouble lady walked me through the process - my IP address needed to be renewed - my son-in-law installed some RAM while I was away and the IP address must have been lost. I watched the end of the Padres game too!
After reading my email and Bloglines, I posted "Genea-Musings is Back Home - Whew!" after the game but before reading the papers and having dinner. After dinner, I was back on the computer by 7 p.m. and posted "Best of the Genea-Blogs - April 6-12, 2008" after doing an hour of research. I puttered around with the ProGen Study Group and Transitional Genealogists Study Group blogs trying to catch up on assignments and twitter.
Genealogy today was all of 5.0 hours - 1.0 hour reading email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours blogging and 0.5 hour doing PGSG/TGSG work.
