Genealogy Journal - 03/06/09

I got a lot done - accomplished even - today...and I'm ready to go off in the morning (we leave Chula Vista at 7:30 a.m. for the Family History Fair in Escondido).

I was up early, so was on the computer by 7:30 a.m. reading email and blogs, and checking Twitter and Facebook. I posted SDGS Trip to Allen County Public Library in April, and then got cleaned up to go out later. I also posted Resolving an Evidence Conflict - Post 1: The Assignment in order to get some input on my conflict resolution problem. I wanted to finish the CVGS Newsletter today, so I spent several more hours adding content, moving things around, adding graphics, etc. At 11:15 a.m., I left to go to lunch at McDonald's and then picked up George for our walk on the bayfront (65 F, sunny, windy today, the tide was really out). We talked about our kids and grandkids, naturally.

I was home by 1 p.m. and worked more on the CVGS newsletter. I finished it, and sent it off for review to several board members. I posted Using the Newseum web site for genealogy and then worked a bit on my presentation for next week. I added one slide and saved everything as ODP and PPT files (then I looked at the PPT file using OpenOffice and the damn text boxes aren't transparent sometimes. Drat. Gotta use the ODP version if possible. Linda called me to dinner at 5:15, and I didn't get back to the desk until 6:30.

I decided to schedule several blog posts to cover Saturday morning and evening, and Sunday morning. Then I wrote Off to the Escondido Family History Fair and I'm done after this post. Gotta get to bed early tonight - need my beauty sleep!

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on T/FB, 3.5 hours on the CVGS newsletter, 1.0 hour on the presentation, and 4.0 hours on writing blog posts.
