My Genealogy Friday - 30 November 2012

11 months down, one to go.  Christmas shopping does not excite me ... unless it's for me!  A little rain this afternoon and evening.

*  Up late because of not sleeping 4-6 email and blogs, then wrote Follow-Up Friday - Helpful and Interesting Reader Comments from the Past Week and got ready to go out.

*  Left at 10 a.m. for Sharp-Rees-Stealy for regular checkup.  Pulse rate high for some reason...maybe the nurse's technique.  Everything else OK, weight down 2 pounds since last visit in July.  Who knew?  I've been afraid to get on the scale!

*  Went to Costco for a Polish dog, then checked out laptops.  Played with Windows 8 a bit - very different...not sure I'm ready for that!  Bought flowers for Linda's birthday.  Then to Kearny Mesa to rent the screen for Sunday...$35 a day!  

*  Home by 2 p.m. to read, futzed around for awhile trying to decide what to write, had some false starts, finally wrote Exploring RootsMagic 6 - Post 6: The "Enhanced Searching and Selecting" Feature.  Messed around in for awhile too.

*  Wrote the Surname Saturday post and two CVGC posts.  Went in for dinner at 5:45 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, and then washed dishes while Linda was on the computer.

*  Online at 7:30 p.m. to read, write the SNGF post, then settled in to do 20 SSDI entries and 12 FAG entries on the MyHeritage list.  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 6.5 hours.
