Genealogy Journal - 08/10/08

Day 2 of the Genealympics dawned and I realized that I still hadn't strapped on my jock... er, wings and flown in to the competition. Perhaps too much information there?

We watched the Olympics during breakfast, and I snuck about 15 minutes in to read email and blogs before church. Yep - many bloggers are going all out in their events. After church, I had to consult with contractor Randy and then I watched the Padres game on TV until about 2 p.m., when they were comfortably ahead 11-0. It ended up 16-7). I came in and wrote Best of the Genea-Blogs for the week. I checked in on Facebook to see if I could find some genea-blogs to start off my event with - I found some! I added some friends, added some photos to an album, and then I worked on my Project M research for awhile. Ed called me at 6 p.m. and we talked for 30 minutes - he was ecstatic to hear of what I've found out about his father's family. I may post more about this later on Genea-Musings. I was late for dinner.

After dinner, I came back in and worked on some of my events, then wrote up my Genealympics-Day 2 post. I chose a hotel in NYC for our pre-cruise stay, and booked it and our airline tickets (we're paying more for 4 nights in NYC than for our airline tickets from SD to NYC and San Juan to SD). I answered some emails I received about NYC hotels, and then logged onto the Wholly Genes forum and suggested the Pan American Hotel in Queens to the group looking for a pre-cruise hotel. Then this post, and I'm going to retire to watch the Olympics and read my new Catherine Coulter mystery.

Genealogy today was 6.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blogs, 1.5 hours working on Project M, 1.5 hours getting hotel and plane reservations, and 1.0 hour participating in the Genealympics events.
