Genealogy Journal - 04/13/09

I missed posting on Sunday again it was a busy day. Today was an almost normal genealogy day, except for finishing up the tax returns.

Tami, James, Lolo and Audrey were here on Sunday morning, and Lolo got up early, the others slept in until after 8 a.m. We had the Easter Egg hunt in the house for Lolo, then took it out back for one turn while Tami got Audrey fed and dressed. Linda and I took the girls to church and Tami and James packed and were ready to go at 11:30 when I brought the girls home. Our friend, Judy B, tripped over a wooden cross leg at church and fell heavily. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital, and Linda went with her and stayed with her. I went to lunch with Tami's family, said goodbyes, then took Linda a Rubio's meal at the hospital. I came home and wrote the Best of the Genea-Blogs post in a hurry, then watched the Padres game (we won 6-3).

Linda called at 4:15 p.m. and I went and picked them up at the hospital, we took Judy home - she has a broken hand, then headed to Coronado for a Burger King dinner and a play at Lambs Players Theater - "The Glass Menagerie." Not wonderful, not terrible. Linda slept through the second half. We were home by 9 and I read everything and did nothing else.

On Monday, after reading email and blogs and Twitter, I posted the Working in RootsMagic 4 - Post 9:Creating a Timeline Chart after doing it and capturing screens. I got cleaned up, then checked the tax returns a final time and realized I didn't have enough paper to print them out. Spent some time getting screen shots from the FHLC for Jefferson County NY and the Lanphere/Lamphere surname for my 4/25 presentation. I left at 11:30 for Costco, bought paper and batteries, had a Polish dog and drink, and headed for the library for CVGS Table Talk. I was home by 2 p.m.

I posted What's on the FamilySearch Record Search Database List? and then wrote up the SDGS Meeting Summary - Colleen Fitzpatrick on 11 April. It was almost Padres game time, so I printed off the tax returns. Went in to watch the game, read the paper, had a short nap, had dinner, and the Pads won 6-5 over the Mets (now 6-2, won 5 straight). I was back to the computer by 7:30, reading everything, then put the tax returns, estimated tax forms, checks and everything into envelopes for mailing tomorrow. I had some time to answer some emails too. Then it was time for 24!

After 24, I came in and read email, blogs, Twitter and Facebook, then wrote this post.

Genealogy on Sunday was 3.0 hours - 0.5 hour reading email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hour writing blog posts, and 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook.
