Genealogy Journal - 01/26/08

Well, the Lolo adventure is over for this month. We drove up to Temecula this morning and met her parents at the Chick-Fil-A restaurant in Murrieta. The best visual was when her mom and dad got there - Lolo came out of the restroom at the same time, saw them, and ran like in a dream shouting "mommy, mommy" with open arms and a big smile on her face. I didn't take the camera... We had lunch, exchanged stories about the week, watched Lolo play on the equipment, said goodbyes and came home, getting back at about 1 PM. I was tired from driving, so I took a nice 2 hour nap in my recliner. In the evening, one of our widow neighbors came over for dinner and conversation.

Besides reading email and other bloggers, the only positive thing I did in genealogy today was posting "Back to my Genealogy Future" and "NGS Book Collection at St. Louis County Library" on Genea-Musings. I did have an enjoyable half hour reading The Genealogue's most recent challenge results.

Other than that, I've spent a whole 3.5 hours today on genealogy - 1.5 hours reading and answering email and reading Bloglines, 1.5 hours blogging, and 0.5 hour researching the NGS book collection in St. Louis.

No football tomorrow - maybe I can get back to some research.

I notice that I've been putting more personal life activities in these posts - this is the only journal I'm currently writing and I will continue to write about my "real life" since it impacts my "genealogy life." Hey, it's my blog, right?
