My Geneaholic Thursday and Friday - 25-26 September 2014

Only four more days in September.  The days just fly by.

1)  Thursday, 25 September:

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 233: List of Children of Norman and Benjamin Seaver in Westminster, Mass. and 2015 Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) - Early-Bird Registration Ends October 31, 2014 and set it for later.

*  Left at 11 a.m. for the bank, got a haircut, the library to check on passports, and Office Depot for the photo black ink cartridge.  Home by 12:15 p.m.

*  Worked on the Probate presentation for several hours.  Wrote Which Family Tree Programs Sync With Online Trees and/Or Have Mobile Apps?  Checked Facebook, and added to the Best Of post. 

*  Went in at 4:45 p.m. to watch TV news, eat dinner, water the front yard.  Online for awhile working on the presentation.

*  Went in at 7 p.m. to watch the Padres game and read the paper and then my book.  Padres were down 6-0 to Giants, when Paul called gloating.  Pads then went ahead 8-6, but lost 9-8.  Haven't heard from Paul again.  It was almost 11 when the game ended.  Read but didn't journal.  Genealogy this day 7.5 hours.

2)  Friday, 26 September:

*  Didn't sleep well, only 5 hours, and have a headache.  Read email and blogs, then wrote 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 39: Jonathan Oatley (1790-1872).

*  We left at 10 a.m. for Costco to get passport photos, then lunch, and to post office to submit passport renewal applications.  Waited 90 minutes for a 10-minute review.  Done!

*  Home by 12:30 p.m. to read, then worked on the Probate presentation.  Wrote Reader Comments on "How Do I Plan to Save My Genealogical Research for Posterity?"

*  Went in at 4:45 p.m. for a short nap, ate dinner, and watched TV.  Online at 5:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook.

*  Went in at 7 p.m. to watch the Padres game and read the paper and my book.  Pads are up 4-1 over Giants as I write this at 9:30 p.m.  Trying to make it an early night.  Genealogy today was 6.5 hours.
