My Geneaholic Thursday and Friday - 8-9 May 2014

I missed journaling again last night - we went to the Padres game and got home at midnight.

1)  Thursday, 8 May:

*  Read email and blogs and noted that Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 213: Birth Record of Nathan Gates (1767-1830) in Stow, Mass.  

*  The insulation guys came and did their job, finished by 10:30 a.m.  Then the Sears gal came and was gone in an hour and had ordered parts for the shelves.  No wood guys shows up between 8 and noon as promised.  Just as well!

*  Noted that Dear Randy: Why Do You Number Your Transcribed Records? posted.  Wrote Responses to "Where Should I Look to Find Relatively Close Cousins?" and set it for later.

*  Wrote the 52 Ancestors post for Friday and updated the Best Of and NGS blog compendium.

*  The wood repair guys showed up at 1:30 p.m. and left by 5 p.m.  

*  We left at 5 p.m. for El Pollo Loco for dinner, then to the trolley for Petco Park.  In our seats by 6:45 p.m.  Only 17,000 there on a cool breezy night.  Game went 11 innings and Pads lost 3-1.  The 11 p.m. trolley was 10 minutes late to boot, so we got home at midnight.  

*  Genealogy this day was 7.0 hours.

2)  Friday, 9 May 2014:

*  Read email and blogs, and wood repair guy came at 8:30 a.m.  Noted that 52 Ancestors Week 19: #26 Devier James Lamphier Smith (1839-1894) posted.  Wrote Using's Member Connect Feature to Find Cousins and set it for later.

*  Checked Facebook, talked to Lori on her birthday, and updated the blog and Best Of posts.

*  Finished up the CVGS Newsletter and just need to proof read it and work on the mailing list.  

*  Went off at 1:45 p.m. to get a haircut and go to Costco for roses for Mother's Day.  Home by 3 p.m. to read, then wrote Celebrates Mother's Day with Free Access Through Monday, 12 May.  Wrote the Surname Saturday post.  Checked Facebook and updated the blog and Best Of posts.

*  More wood repair guys came to do the back patio cover and the other guy finished up in front by 4:30 p.m.  A lady came by because she'd seen the wood repair guys and wanted to talk to them, but she knew that I was a genealogy blogger somehow.  

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30 p.m. and watched TV news.  Online at 6:30 p.m. to work on the SNGF post.

*  Padres game started at 7:10 p.m., so read the paper and then my book, washed the dishes, and my Padres finally won a laugher, 10-1 over Marlins (so now 16-21 on the season).  

*  Online at 10 p.m. to read, answer email, and update the Best Of and NGS blog posts, then wrote this post.  i'm tired!  Genealogy today was 8.0 hours.
