My genealogy days - 19 and 20 April 2011

Skipped a day yesterday - was busy most of the day with the grandgirls.  Back on track today!

1)  Tuesday, 19 April:

*  Got the girls fed, entertained and dressed.  Managed to read my email but not blogs before we left.  Noted that My Uncle, Asahel Read (1753-1775) died at Lexington on 19 April 1775 posted (written Monday).

*  Left before 10 a.m. to go to the SD Zoo.  Had a good time, ate lunch there, home by 1:15 p.m.  got the girls down for naps...kind of.  Finally to sleep at 3 p.m. 

*  Read blogs, wrote Mocavo Search Engine adds Blogs, more sites coming! and Careers in Genealogy - My Choices Work For Me.

*  Gathered up the CVGS Genealogy 101 material, the laptop and the projector, ate dinner, and off at 4:45 p.m. to the Chula Vista Library to teach the Genealogy 101 class.

*  Genealogy 101 class stated at 5:30 p.m., had 17 in attendance, finished at 7:30 p.m.  Home by 8 p.m. to help with the girls - read books, put them to bed, but not to sleep until 9:30 or so.

*  Read everything, wrote post for Wednesday, added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and forgot to write this post.

2)  Wednesday, 20 April:

*  Got girls fed, entertained and dressed, read email, then Linda home and decided to take them home this morning.  Packed suitcase, found most of the things (still missing a small blanket...), packed the car for Linda, and they left at 10:30 a.m.  Noted that (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 149: The Carringer House View didn't post at scheduled time, so did it manually.  Got cleaned up, read blogs, ate lunch, and off to the library at 11:45 a.m.

*  Wemnt to the CVGS Computer Group meeting, then worked on a query.  Home by 2:30 p.m. to read, answered some email, wrote TANSTAAFGS, then watched the Padres/Cubs game on TV.

*  Read the paper, ate dinner, put the trash out, watered the front plants, and the Padres won 5-4 (now 8-10 on season).
