Genealogy Journal - 02/16/09

I finally had a long genealogy day planned, and life overtook all of my plans to work on a client report and work on my databases and presentation. Harrummpphh. It ended up being blogging, TGSG and Facebook. Oh well.

I was on the computer at 8 a.m. after a good night's sleep and breakfast, read my email, blogs and Facebook and settled in for a long day of blogging and working. I posted Second Bloggers Summit at 2009 SCGS Jamboree. I wasn't on the list - kinda POed about it. Oh well, stiffupperlip and all that. I wrote "Sadness, reality attach themselves to unclaimed persons list" and set it to post later in the morning. I went in and got cleaned up, then worked on our bank accounts for almost three hours. Lunch time - chocchip cookies, bologna and fruit cup at the genea-desque.

I wrote Answers to MyHeritage questions and then wrote four posts on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog wrapping up the Survey results - see the summary post here. I posted this via Twitter to Facebook, then answered some emails. At 3:15, Linda needed the desktop computer so I went in to watch the TV news for awhile, and came back at 4 p.m. I was ready to start my client work and she informed me that we were going out soon and having dinner at our friends' house after stopping at two other homes first. We had a nice dinner, and were home just after 7 p.m. That put a crimp in all my plans. To top it off, she needed the computer again until 7:35 p.m!

I checked email, blogs and Facebook, and wrote 2009 APG Professional Management Conference Speakers on Genea-Musings. I sent an email to the CVGS group about the Family History Fair registration and to the Program Chair about a speaker. Then I remembered that the TGSG chat was Thursday night, and I needed to study the article. I finally found the list of articles on the TGSG GG (Google Group) and went through the convoluted process of finding the NGSQ issues on the new NGS web site. I downloaded several issues so that I didn't have to do that again! At 9, it was time for Jack Bauer on 24, so I came back at 10 to the computer to write this post, check email and blogs, and Facebook too.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 3.0 hours writing 9 blog posts, 1.5 hour on TGSG things, 0.5 hour on CVGS activities, and 1.0 hour on Twitter/Facebook. I got no chance at all to work on the client report or my databases or presentation. Harrummppphh.
