Genealogy Journal - 7/12-13/2008

I missed posting last night - sorry - we were late getting home from the Padres game.

Saturday, 12 July, was a day of genealogy and Padres. I was up early, and got all of the boxes back in the Genealogy Cave so the cleaner could work in the guest bedroom. Then I read my email and blogs, and posted the second part of Della's Circle of Friends and then Using FamilyTreeMaker 2008 - Post 2: Exploring. I did a bit more work in FTM2008 testing things and putting screen captures in my OpenOffice file. Linda came home at 11 a.m., so I quickly had lunch and we left at 11:20 to go to the SDGS meeting.

We got there just before noon, and signed in. The program was late starting due to a technical glitch. I'll post about it on Sunday. We were home by 2:30, and I checked email and blogs, and posted the Wheel of GenFortune for the week. I was tired, so I watched the news, read the paper and took an hour nap. We got ready to go to the Padres game, stopped at Rubio's for dinner, and saw the celebration of the 1998 world Series team. We lost again, 4-1, but the fireworks afterward were good. We were home just before 11 p.m.

On Sunday, 13 July, I checked my email and blogs in the morning, and got ready for church at 10 a.m. We stayed for the Secretary's retirement party and were home about 12:15. That left me a little time to write Best of the Genea-Blogs for last week before the Padres game at 1:05 p.m. Yawn, I read the paper, had a nap, and the Pads got beat 12-2. At 4, I came back to the computer and wrote up the "About San Diego" SDGS program. Then it was dinner time, and we watched tonight's "About San Diego" show at 6 p.m. At 6:30, I was back on the computer, and did some CVGS email and planning, then decided to work some more in FTM2008. While looking for a source citation, I happened across some of the Massachusetts town vital records books on Google Books, so I wrote a post about them. My Bloglines showed that the latest Smile for the Camera carnival was posted, so I read that, and several of the blog posts on the Carnival, for awhile, and then posted about it myself. Where did the time go tonight?

Genealogy on 12 July was 5.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.0 hours researching and writing blog posts, and 2.5 hours at the SDGS meeting.
