Family History Journal - 05/06/09

A day of family history and not much genealogy. Tami went off for the day to meet students and teach her class and will come back on Thursday afternoon. So we had Audrey and Lolo all day and night to ourselves. Everything but bedtime went well!

I was able to read my email and blogs and Twitter before the girls got up, and then after Tami left and Linda came home and took them off to the mall for shopping and lunch. I posted Family Photographs - Post 54: Watermelon feed in 1916, had lunch and then gathered my CVGS stuff and went off to the board meeting at 12 noon. The meeting was over at 2 p.m. and I was home by 2:30 to find Linda and the girls napping.

I posted SDGS Meeting on Saturday, 5/9 - Susan Pentico on "Lost Colony of Virginia" and then the girls woke up, so I played with them, fed them snacks, and when Linda got up I came in and wrote One "New Search" "Quirk" is fixed. I checked Footnote and Facebook and added two "I Remember" people - my paternal grandparents. I also added my Footnote widget to Genea-Musings. Then it was off to Chick-fil-A for dinner, and a shared cookies and cream milk shake with Lolo and Audrey (she likes the whipped cream and is frustrated when it's all gone). The girls played in the play area for at least 30 minutes - Audrey is standing but not walking yet, so I had to watch her carefully. We were home by 7, and turned the Padres game on. I got Audrey bathed, dressed, rocked, bottled and put to bed by 7:45, but she fussed until after 9:30. Lolo took her bath, got dressed, had her snack, brushed teeth, rocked and sung to, and put to bed at 9 p.m. She is still awake at 10:30 as I write this. The Padres lost 3-1 to the Snakes, and I came in at 10 to read everything and write this post.

My next few days are going to be hectic - the newsletter to put together and publish on Sunday, the ProGen chat on Thursday night, the class presentation to finish by Monday morning, the FHC and SDGS meeting on Saturday, and the Ancestry 101 presentation to finish for 16 May. Whew! Bit off too much here, I fear.

Genealogy today was 6.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook/Footnote, 2.5 hours on CVGS things, and 2.0 hours on writing genealogy blogs.
