Genealogy Journal - 05/08/09

Things are back to normal here at the Genea-Manor now that the grandgirlies have gone home - ah, the memories, the blown kisses, the bright eyes, the snuggles, are almost enough to make me give up genealogy. Maybe for a week or so... Next week we have the grandboys, Lucas (age 5.5) and Logan (age 3+) for six nights. Fun fun fun!

In the Genea-Cave today: After reading email, blogs and Twitter, I posted You might be a Professional Genealogist if ... based on an APG mailing list post. It will be SNGF fodder too! I got cleaned up and came back to work on the CVGS Newsletter, and found a problem, so emailed the Board about it. At 11:30, I went off to Costco to buy flowers for Angel Linda for Mother's Day and to buy stamps, then had lunch there before coming home. No walk at the bay today.

When I got home, I had an email from NEHGS about the TAG digitizing, so I posted "The American Genealogist" (TAG) to be digitized on NEHGS site. I worked on my handout for the OASIS class (starts Monday!) for most of the afternoon, stopping only to research and write Walter (2000-2008) about my grandhound for the Smile carnival. Then it was time for the Padres-Astros game.

I read the paper, watched the game, had dinner, and read my Jeffrey Deaver book until 7:30 p.m. -- the Astros won 2-0. When I came back, I added content to my OASIS class presentation and got it almost done - just needs some annotations. I printed some of the class handouts too, but then added a page so I'll have to fix the ones I've printed. Lastly, I wrote this ode to my genea-activities for the day.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 1.5 hours on CVGS newsletter, and 5.0 hours on the OASIS class handout and presentation.

I read the list of signs of a professional genealogist. It's pretty funny--and accurate! There are DEFINITELY more than a few items on that list that describe me!
