Genealogy Journal - 12/14/08

Sunday was a day of relative genealogy rest - and a terrible football game that turned out a Chargers win somehow.

I watched MEET THE dePRESSed this morning to see if David Gregory was better than Brokaw (he was) and Russert (he wasn't). Then I read email and blogs, and got dressed to watch the Chargers game at 10 a.m. It was a must win game, and they were behind 21-3 in the 3rd quarter, having played poorly on offense and defense. In the 4th quarter, they scored enough points to win 22-21 in the last 40 seconds. They're still in the hunt - one more loss and they're done, though.

At 1:30, I was ready to blog something, but Linda used the computer for almost an hour. Finally, I posted Best of the Genea-Blogs for the week and went back to watch the end of the Steelers-Ravens game. I helped Linda get ready for her Christmas Party, and after she left I had dinner and watched a bit of the Giants-Cowboys game. At 5:45, came in and searched for BMD data for my Project L work, then started work on my first column for the [unnamed] magazine. I finally thought of a decent topic - it's due in early January. At 8:30, I went in to watch the end of the Giants-Cowboys game, then Charger highlights, and Desperate Genea-, er, Housewives wasn't on. Email, blogs, Facebook, I'm done.

Genealogy today was 5.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 1.0 hour writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on Project L, and 1.5 hours on the magazine article research and writing.
