Genealogy Journal - 03/01/09

It was a beautiful day here in San Diego, 80 F with some clouds, but it's going to rain later in the week they say. We went to church and I stayed home and didn't cut the lawn again - drat - I hate it when I work on genealogy all afternoon and don't remember to do my chores. Yeah - right!

I was watching TV and eating breakfast when Della (Smith) Carringer had it all together! posted this morning, having written it last night - I love automation! I did read my email before church, but left at 9:30 and we got back at 11:45 a.m. I read more email, then read blogs, and checked in on Facebook.

Ate lunch, then started in on Best of the Genea-Blogs, which took awhile, then tweeted about it, checked in on Facebook, did the Grader test (I got 65, dunno if that's good or bad). Pam called asking if I could teach a 4-session class using her materials in May - sounds like fun, and good experience - I probably will do it. Decided to finish up my ProGen homework, so I edited my source citations using Evidence Explained models (I am so bad at guessing how to do sources!), then did the analysis and conclusions work using Mark's format. Linda came home at 5 and asked why I hadn't done the lawn...dinner time, then "About San Diego" at 6 p.m., news, and 60 Minutes while Linda did her email.

Was back online at 7:45 p.m., read everything, answered some emails, did some research for other emails, and read some of the digital magazines I get. At 9 I went in to watch Desperate Housewives but it wasn't on so watched the PBS DooWop special for awhile, reading my new Family Tree Magazine. Back to the computer at 9:45, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour doing online research, 3.0 hours on the ProGen homework, 0.5 hour reading things online, and 0.5 hour on Facebook.
