Genea-family Journal - 08/03/08

This was not a genealogy intensive day, but I did make good use of the available time, which was limited.

Lolo was up at 7 a.m. and we shared our banana and frozen waffles while watching Playhouse Disney on TV. Linda left for church at 8 a.m. Audrey got up at 8 a.m. and had a bottle. We got the girls dressed for church, and I left with them at 9:40. Lolo went to Sunday School and Audrey to the nursery. We were home at 11:30. Lolo wanted to go to Carl's Jr. for lunch, so we went there and were home by 1. We got both girls down for naps after awhile, and I watched the Padres game while trying to nap. We won 4-1, and finally at 4 p.m. I got on the computer to read email and blogs and hurriedly posted "Best of the Genea-Blogs" for the week.

Tami took Lolo to Sea World for the evening with their friends, and Linda and I had Audrey to ourselves. She finally awakened at 5:30 and we put a bottle in her and she played while we ate dinner. I took her for a walk to the neighbors house afterwards, then we watched the news and 60 Minutes before I gave her to Linda for one more bottle and bedtime. I watered the plants in front, then read email and blogs and posted about the Carnival. Lolo and Tami came home at 9. I started work on my new project for Ed M and found quite a bit of material - SSDI, GA DI, 1930, 1920, 1910 census records, etc. I'm putting all of it into an OpenOffice spreadsheet in addition to saving the documents in a computer file.

Genealogy today was 3.5 hours - 0.5 doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour writing blog posts, and 1.5 hours on my research project. Lots of good family history today...
