I missed journaling on Sunday because of the circumstances - exhausted, sleepy, and I didn't do a whole lot that day. Monday was almost a nogenealogy day!
1) Sunday, 14 September:
* I didn't sleep well - woke up after 4 hours at 3:45 a.m. with terrible worries about my daughter suffering from a bad migraine headache and terrible shoulder pain after giving birth on Friday. I expected a bad outcome.
* The worry was relieved when we talked to her after 8 a.m. - the headache and pains were greatly reduced and they had a known reason - referral gas pains. Don't ask. We made arrangements to go to Huntington Beach and be there when she came home from the hospital with the baby.
* I finished up Best of the Genea-Blogs - 7 to 13 September 2014, and we left at 9 a.m. for Huntington Beach. It was an easy ride - 102 miles to their house in 100 minutes. The girls were excited to see us, and James left to get Tami and the baby. They came back at 12:30 p.m. and we all took turns holding Charlie and taking pictures. He is precious.
* Tami was still in some pain, walking gingerly and not feeling well. She napped a bit, while James and I watched the Chargers game. Chargers won 30-21 over the Seahawks, so they are now 1-1.
* We gathered the girls and started home at 4:30, stopped at Carlsbad In n Out for dinner, and were home by 6:15 p.m. Got the girls dessert and they entertained themselves. I wrote the Amanuensis Monday post.
* Fell asleep in Audrey's room at 9:45, woke up at 10:30, got Lauren's light out, and went to bed soon after.
2) Monday, 15 September 2014: 95 F here today.
* Got a decent night's sleep, so feeling better. The girls got up late, and I got them fed and settled. Read email and blogs on my phone. Noted that Amanuensis Monday - Post 235: 1869 Deed of Land in Taylor County, Iowa from John Craven and wife to Ranslow Smith posted.
* Tuned into Mondays with Myrt at 8:45 a.m., and we went until 10:40 a.m. Audrey wanted to run through the sprinkler on the front lawn, so I emptied more water from the washing machine. Got the girls lunch and we went to Sears to buy a washing machine. Home by 1:15 p.m. to read, and wrote 10th Annual Genealogy Conference and Cruise to Mexican Riviera.
* Added to the Best Of post, answered email, and then researched and wrote Mining the New Hampshire Death Certificates, 1938-1959 on FamilySearch.
* We left for dinner at 5 p.m. at El Pollo Loco, and were home by 6:20 p.m. to watch the football game. Then the Padres game was on, and Pads on 1-0 over the Phillies in 2:08 hours. Fastest game of our year. So we're 69-80 now.
* The girls were still awake, so tried to get them to try to sleep - it's warm in the house and we all have fans going. Online at 9:15 p.m. to read, check Facebook and write this post. Genealogy today was 8.0 hours.
