Randy's Genealogy Day - 25 April 2010

This is the last day before our trip to Salt Lake City, and I frittered most of it away. Have a serious case of senioritis, I guess!

* Read email, blogs and Twitter, then finished the Best of the Genea-Blogs post before getting cleaned up and going to church. Have you registered for Jamboree yet? posted before we left.

* Home from church at 11:40 a.m., quickly logged into Ancestories and got into Scanfest. Scanned about 20 images as TIFF files from my certificates notebook - finished all but the big one - 14 x 26 marriage certificate. Chatted until almost 2 PM when the computer really slowed down, so went in to watch TV.

* Easily fell asleep after the strenuous chat session, and was back on computer at 3 PM. Have no clue what was on TV. Checked Facebook, answered email, put electronics into the laptop case, got RottsMagic-To-Go updated on flash drive. CVGS Program on Wednesday, 28 April - Myrna Goodwin on Land Research posted.

* Went out at 5 PM to cut front lawn, water front plants, fill the bird feeder (will be gone in three days), had dinner, read paper, watched news, packed suitcase, etc.

* Back online at 7 p.m., read everything, packed laptop case then put paper stacks in suitcase instead. Got boarding passes, called for airport shuttle pickup, I think we're as ready as can be. Read Facebook some more, went in at 9 PM to watch History Channel for America: The Story of Us. Watched until 10 PM, came in to write this post and will go back to see the rest of it.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blog posts, 1.0 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 2.5 hours on Scanfest, 1.0 hour writing blog posts, and 1.5 hours preparing for trip.

This blog will go dark for several days because of the Salt Lake City trip. Watch for daily summaries on Genea-Musings.
