My Non-Genealogy Week

Well, we survived the grandgirls for 10 days...but we're tired!

I managed to keep Genea-Musings going, spending some time every day writing blog posts, and I had a few scheduled to help out.  I wasn't sure how much time I would have, but I managed several hours in the morning, several in the evening, and several more sometimes at night.  I didn't do much if any research, but I did get blog posts written.

The exception was Monday, 21 July - I got on the GeneaSleepOver around 8:30 a.m. and stayed until about 11 a.m., and then got on at around 1 p.m. and stayed until the end of 5 p.m.  In the process, I indexed three batches of obituaries which were pretty easy.

Today, the girls didn't get up until 8:30 and 9 a.m., so I got Forrest Gump Principle Strikes Again - The Frederick Sovereign (1786-1875) Drawing posted and then looked for more to do.  

*  I left at 10:45 a.m. for my dentist appointment, got home at 12 noon, we packed up the girls, the piggies and their stuff and met Tami at 1 p.m. in Carlsbad for lunch at In n Out.  We were home by 2:45 p.m., and I conked out immediately in my chair until 3:30 p.m.

*  Up and at 'em, finished up the tables and wrote Organizing the Taylor County, Iowa Land Deeds of Ranslow Smith and Devier J. Smith.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch the Padres game, eat dinner, read the paper and my book.  Pads lost 6-0 to the Cubs - terrible game.  Now 43-56 on the season.  

*  Online at 8:15 to read, add to the Best Of post, answer email, and then worked in Ancestry reconciling the Ga to Go names.  

*  Checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.  That was pretty typical of the last 10 days - 5 to 6 hours, except for Monday, which was probably 8 hours.
