Genealogy Journal - 05/01/09

It's spring, the first day of May, and I spent most of it inside huddled over my keyboard trying to coax words from fingers to screen ...

After reading email, blogs and Twitter, I researched and posted Correcting Records on I found out that the quirk from last night is still around. Looked for the OASIS document I saved two days ago and finally found it in My Documents - how did it get there? Got cleaned up, went to the bank and McDonald's for lunch, then home by 11:30 and went back to the keyboard.

Flailed around on the OASIS thing for awhile and made nearly zero headway. Looked at the LDS site for how-tos and other helps - very confusing site. Wrote "Digital Documentation" by Shirley Becker - CVGS Program Summary and Genealogy Days in Chula Vista - May 2009 on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blogg. Received several emails from Tony and finally wrote up Response to Census Quirk Problem. Went back to the OASIS stuff for awhile, then realized I needed to write something for Saturday morning, so I did another RootsMagic post.

At 5 p.m., we went to Black Angus for dinner - had a $13.95 coupon for a filet mignon dinner that was too good to pass up. It was OK - Linda's lips tingled but she didn't have an allergic reaction but she didn't eat much steak. We were home by 6:30, and I spent some time reading everything and answered several emails.

At 7 p.m., I went in to watch the Padres-Dodgers game and read the paper and then my book. The Dodgers won it in the 9th on a two-out bases-loaded walk. Drat, I hate it when that happens - wasted 8 shutout innings by Jake Peavy. Back to the computer, and read everything and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 3.0 hours on OASIS class stuff, and 3.0 hours writing blog posts.
