Genealogy Journal - 09/21/08

It was just another typical Sunday here at the Genea-Cave. Well, except for the fact we had the girlies here and I didn't go to church and the Padres actually won and the Chargers didn't lose (they play on Monday this week!).

I had a good night's sleep after my rantings yesterday, and was up at 7:15, read the paper, ate breakfast, and got Audrey up when she cried out. We got her fed and diaper changed, then she spewed all over my sleep shirt so I went in and took my shower. Tami was still asleep, so Audrey and I watched Disney Channel while Linda went to church. Before long, Audrey squirted loudly and her diaper didn't hold it - I got all gooey and it took awhile to clean us both up. I love being a grandfather! Tami got up, fed her again, and put her down for a nap at 9:15, so I came in and got started on my genealogy day by reading email and blogs, then posted The Best of the Genea-Blogs for the week.

At 10:30, I came in to watch the Padres game. Audrey woke up at 11, and Tami fed her and dressed her and packed up to go home. They left to pick up Lolo and have lunch. I read the paper and watched my Padres win - then watched some of the Denver-Saints game. Linda came home and made a quesadilla for lunch, and I took a short nap. At 2:30, I came back and read email and blogs and Facebook, then settled down to polish up the syllabus for my CG101 presentation. I decided to just copy the text from OpenOffice Impress to OpenOffice Text, and edited it for consistency. Some of the text didn't come across, so I had to copy and paste from the slides. I almost finished it, but at 4 we had to leave for dinner with friends and then a play at Lamb's Players Theater in Coronado - A Light in the Piazza. It was a semi-opera half in Italian, and we couldn't understand most of the dialogue or lyrics - the orchestra was too loud (our seats are off to the side). I couldn't wait to get home - the most redeeming feature was that it wasn't longer.

We were home by 8:45, so I read email and blogs, checked Facebook, wrote a post about the new FTMUser blog, and then wrote this post. I won't have much time on Monday for genealogy - I have to go into Goodrich for a conference (they want me to come back as a contractor - I don't want to, so this is a brainpicking session), then to the library for the Table Talk, and then the Chargers-Jets play at 5:30 on ESPN. I'm guessing 34-31 Chargers (hope springs eternal, eh?).

Genealogy today was 4.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, and 1.5 hours doing the CG101 syllabus.
