Genealogy Journal - 09/29/08

There was plenty of family history made over the last five days when I was in Santa Cruz taking care of my grandsons (yep, chauffeur, cook, bottle washer, sweeper, pitcher, disciplinarian, boy-hugger, kid-swinger, bath-master, book reader, TV nazi, etc.). I will always remember the naked car washers, the Chinese food dining experience, chasing little boys around the park, and being Grandpa Monster. Not much genealogy, but it wasn't a genealogy trip. By the way, my daughter and son-in-law really enjoyed their weekend in Portland.

I was back home to the Genea-Cave by 4 p.m. (the plane was on time, but Linda had a dead battery) and read my email and blogs (fortunately, I read email and blogs in Santa Cruz - I got about an hour each day after the boys went to bed), then we had dinner and I read the paper and watched Tv for awhile. When I came back in at 6:30, I wrote the Best of the Genea-Blogs post and the Genea-bloggers Gnome paid me a visit too. I emailed my CVGS board with the meeting agenda and the members with the SDGS Library Research Trip news. I answered several emails too - many more left to respond to.

That was about it for the evening, although I did check Facebook and posted the I'm Fed Up video.

Genealogy today was all of 4.5 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hour writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on CVGS activities, and 0.5 hour on Facebook.

Tomorrow should be an all-genealogy day - maybe I can catch up on my email, get my ProGen work done, and blog about interesting things.
