Genealogy Journal - 03/20/09

I'm back from my four days in Santa Cruz seeing my daughter, her hubby and my two grandsons. I had fun playing with the kids. I'm really sore after the endless games. I'm also starting to get the Santa Cruz crud - the sniffles, sore throat, cough, fever, and everything else that lasts almost two weeks - every time I'm with these boys.

We were up and out early today to get Logan to school by 8:30 and to get to Lucas school by 9 .a.m. Lori had a meeting with the teachers for a progress report, so we went to the upper playground. Lucas dug out the soccer ball, and we played one-on-one for about 20 minutes. I was already tired out! Then we played baseball for about 20 minutes, and finally basketball for about 20 minutes. He's very competitive! Fun. I'm exhausted by now and a bit sweaty in my dress shirt and flannel overshirt. Oh well. We headed for the San Jose airport at 10 a.m. and I was through security by 11 a.m. I had Burger King for lunch, stopped at the newsstand, and waited two hours at the gate to board the full plane to San Diego. I got a window seat on the right and finished my book as we taxied in to the gate. The bag came quickly, and Linda picked me up at about 3:20. We were home just before 4 pm. there was lots of traffic.

I read my email and blogs, checked in on Twitter and Facebook, and then went in to watch TV and we had dinner at 6 p.m. I was back on the computer at 7 p.m. and posted More on Ancestry and, then added to the Wordles post and wrote another Y-DNA post for Saturday morning.

Genealogy today was 4.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, and 0.5 hour on T/FB, and 2.5 hours writing blog posts.
