Genealogy Journal - 02/24/09

Life intervenes sometimes when you least expect it. We were all set for Tami, Lolo and Audrey to come on Wednesday. However, Linda had to go get Lolo this afternoon because of schedule problems, so she was here from nap time on.

I was on the computer by 8 a.m., read my email and blogs, checked Facebook, and wrote Tombstone Tuesday - Alpheus Smith in Medfield MA. I added some updates to the Who's #21 post too. I got cleaned up and ready to go out, and was at the FHC by 10:45. I found the deeds on the two films, and was headed home by 11:45. I stopped at Glen Abbey Cemetery to take a picture for a query, but the sun was too bright and I couldn't get the picture my correspondent wants (this is the third time I've tried) - I need a morning or a cloudy afternoon, I guess. I was home by 12:30, had lunch and was reading email and blogs when Linda brought Lolo home. I came back and read some of Evidence Explained for the ProGen homework, then worked on Genealogy Search Engines: Footnote.com - Post 2: Simple Search for an hour. When Lolo got up at 3, my blogging time was over. We went out to ride her bike, played in the family room, watched Diego on TV, and I even got a short nap before dinner.

After dinner, she watched TV and played while I researched and wrote Use Google Language Tools to aid Hispanic Research, then she had a bath and I read a book to her, rocked and sang my song to her, and tried to put her down at 8:30. At 10:15, she's still awake! During all of the up-and-down, I wrote two posts for Wednesday because I figure my morning will be taken by feeding and caring for Lolo before I go off to the CVGS Program.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 3.5 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on ProGen homework, 1.0 hour at the FHC, and 0.5 hour at the cemetery.
