Genealogy Journal - 10/04/08

I'm feeling better today after a decent night's sleep - the runny nose has slowed, the coughing isn't as frequent, and I have more energy.

I was on the computer by 8 a.m. reading email and blogs, and posted about the CVGS Seminar on 18 October. I wish there was a way to keep this on "top" of all of my posts without changing the date every day. After getting ready to go out, I gathered up my stuff for the research trip to the SDGS library.

We carpooled from Chula Vista to El Cajon - Charlotte drove this time. We talked about her kids and my grandkids. We got there right at 10 a.m., signed in, and the staff gave Charlotte and Nancy a guided tour of the library, while I joined the FTM User's group meeting already in progress. After the meeting, I took some pictures of the group, then took some pictures of Charlotte and Nancy, and also of parts of the library. We had lunch there, then I did some research on my RI and NJ folks, and found some useful information. We left after 2 p.m. and I was home by 3.

I read my email and blogs, then downloaded my pictures to the computer. I wrote up the Research Trip to SDGS Library, complete with pictures (the Genea-blogger Gnome went along!). I was tired, so I went in to watch SDSU get beat by TCU and the ball game, then had dinner, and worked a bit putting the nearly finished bedroom back together. I started sorting out some of the stuff - I got the tools, pictures/slides and maps sorted - keeping just what I want and pitching the rest. In the process, I found some pictures from the 1960's and early 1970's which I've put in the to-be-scanned box. I also determined that the movie projector doesn't work but the slide projector does. I may want to scan some of the slides too. I watched the Dodgers beat the Cubs while sorting, then came to the computer and posted about the 57th Carnival of Genealogy and wrote this post, while having a coughing jag.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours -- 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour writing blog posts, and 5.0 hours on the CVGS Research trip.
