Genea-family journal - 08/04/08

It's so peaceful in the house tonight... I'm tired. Not of being a grandfather or father, just pooped from the effort to do those tasks well. Lolo (age 3.5) and Audrey (age 0.25) are beautiful children who are really easy to take care of - but there are few breaks.

I had both girls all morning since Linda had errands and Tami had a meeting with a professor. Lolo and I had our waffles while watching The Wiggles, and Audrey woke up at 8 a.m. and I got her fed while Lolo played with puzzles and balloons and her dollies. Linda was home before noon, so I was able to read my email and blogs, and posted Using FamilyTreeMaker 2008- Post 10. After lunch, Tami came home and put the girls down for naps and I was able to post about the GRA and BIGRA meetings on 7 August. Then I went in for my nap, but Lolo got up and we watched Sprout while I tried unsuccessfully to doze. Linda left at 3 for her VBS work at church, and Audrey woke up at 4, as did Tami. She got their stuff together and packed the car, and we left at 5 p.m. for dinner at Pat & Oscar's - we met Tami's friend there. They left from there to drive home while the girls sleep. I was home by 7 and picked up the house a bit.

I read my email and blogs again, and posted about the CVGS Genealogy Days for August on the CV Genealogy Cafe, then created the agenda for the CVGS Board meeting on Wednesday. I decided I'd better start work on my ProGen assignment, so I did that for awhile. I still need to read the book chapter. Then I checked Facebook and finally started organizing my search for Ed M. After this post, I'm going to read the ProGen chapter then read some of my mystery book.

Genealogy today was 6.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 1.0 hour on CVGS planning, 1.5 hour on the ProGen assignment, and 0.5 hour on the Ed M. project.
