Genealogy Journal - 07/01/08

With Lolo here, I have to catch genealogy time when it's available. She went with Linda to the library at 10 a.m. for preschool reading, and then to lunch at Rubio's (the kid loves fish tacos, salsa, beans, you name it, but not asparagus or anything green).

I read my email and answered several, read my blogs and made some comments. Uh-oh, I'd better post something before they come home... so I wrote about "More on Ancestry 'Ownership' of User Databases." It already has an excellent comment and analysis from Craig Manson. I started "Using Bloglines.com to read many blogs" at 12 noon, but they came home before I was done, so it didn't post until almost 2 p.m. We got Lolo down for a nap at 1 and she woke up about 3:30 - enough time for me to get my ProGen reading done, check my LibraryThing book list against the recommended "must have" list, and check out several web sites too. I made the agenda for the CVGS board meeting and sent it out.

My work stopped when Lolo got up, and we went in and watched TV and she worked on puzzles for awhile. I dozed in the chair until Linda came home at 4:45 and we went off to Chick-fil-A for dinner. Lolo and I shared a choc shake, she ate all of her chic nuggets and fries, and we had an ice cream cone to top it off. She played on the climbing set for over 30 minutes while Linda talked to our friend with her grandchildren there too. We were home by 7 p.m., and the Padres game was on. I no sooner sat down and the Rockies scored 4 runs in the 5th, and it ended 4-0. Linda took Lolo to the neighbors for birthday cake, and came home at 8. We got Lolo into the bath, ready for bed, and finally down at 9:15. But Linda was on the computer.... so I read some more and finally got on at 9:45 and posted another Wheel of Genealogy Fortune post - harder this time, since it's not yet on Google. Then this post and I'm done.

Genealogy today was 6.0 hours - 0.5 hour on email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing and researching blog posts, 0.5 hour on CVGS, 1.0 hour on ProGen work, and 1.0 hour checking web sites. Lolo sure bites into my research time. I really don't mind!
