Randy's Non-Genealogy Day - 20 November 2010

Not much of a genealogy day today - I'm feeling a bit burned out on blogging and dreading the next month - so much to do and now under pressure to do it.  New computer.  Thanksgiving with the grandgirls.  Linda's birthday.  CVGS tasks.  The Christmas letter and Seaver-Richmond Family Journal.  The Christmas trip.  Other than that, I can still blog, I guess.

*  Up early and out for the 7 a.m. breakfast at Carrow's with Linda's swim friends.  Home by 8:30 - decided not to go to CGSSD meeting due to rain and bad night's sleep. 

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Surname Saturday - REED (England > MA) posted.  Reviewed more Best Buy computer webpages and printed some off.  Saved some emails to HTML files on the desktop computer. 

*  Bored out of my mind... opened GenealogyBank and found Seaver obituaries and transcribed about 10 into the database.  I'm through 25 out of about 3,000.  Yikes - a lifetime job!  Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun- What are you thankful for?  posted.

*  Went in to have lunch, watch football, read the paper, take a nap, and then got ready to go to the wedding at 3 at church.  Nice wedding, good reception, talked a little genealogy with friends.

*  Home by 6 p.m., read everything, check Facebook, answered some email, and went in to watch the SDSU/Utah game on TV.  Utah won 38-34 as SDSU shot themselves in the foot once too often.  Good game.

*  Online at 10:20 to read everything, then write this post. 

Genealogy today was 3.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour writing blog posts, and 1.5 hours working GenealogyBank and the database.

The nice thing about blogging is that you can take a break when you need to.
