December 19th - Another Rather Quiet Day

I love being home and doing whatever strikes me at the moment, so I enjoyed the day today.  It was pretty much the same as yesterday and I loved it. 

I did make a run to the library to return some things that were due yesterday.  They had all been renewed as many times as allowed and one I still had a bit to finish, so I took it in to renew.  Since all three things were a day late, I mentioned that I knew I would owe a fine, but it turns out that a senior card gives you a few extra days without any fines.  My comment was that it was certainly nice that the library understood that old people just forget a lot!  Brought a smile to everyone's face.

When I got back home, Bill was there.  It seems he just has a repair job today and it is just down the street, so while the gelcoat was setting up, he came back home.  Nice surprise to have him home at lunch time.  Then he had to go back and finish up the job.

I mostly worked on my family history and I think I have the chart all finished and filled in properly.  It will be the second case study in my presentation.  I have a few more things to finish it up, but getting this done is a big step.

I actually cooked a little dinner this evening - big surprise!  I felt like eating a little more than usual, so that was all it took.  It wasn't much, but at least we had food.  I usually eat lunch and then very little at dinnertime.

December 18th - Quiet Thursday

I spent today mostly recovering from being so tired yesterday!  Well, I did do a bunch of laundry and a few other house things.  I also worked on my family history some more.  I just didn't feel like doing much of anything else, so I didn't! 

Hmmm,  that sounds like a pretty lazy day.  Funny, it didn't seem lazy, but I guess it was!

December 17th - Genealogy Study Group

Today was mostly taken up with the Genealogy Study Group.  I was at the church early to get some things set up.  It was primarily a social today, so we had snacks and plenty of time to just visit and get better acquainted with each other.  We also had everyone do a survey to get some feedback on the direction that they want the group to go for the next year.  Everyone seemed to have a good time and I heard some comments about what a fun morning it was. 

We then had our steering committee meeting, which took a little while since we did not have a program planned for January yet.  We got the next three or four months outlined, so we felt like we had accomplished a lot.

One of the workers for the afternoon at the Family History Center was not there, and there was a patron, so I stayed with her, so she would not be alone.  It was one of the members of the Study Group who wanted to take advantage of the center being open after the meeting.  I helped him with some Fold3 stuff.  I love helping patrons.  It did make for a long day, though!

When I finally got home, I had some light lunch (I had eaten plenty of snacks earlier!)  I worked a little more on my presentation.  Then, since I was so tired again, I decided to watch some episodes of Broadchurch.  I ended up watching the last 3 episodes so the murder mystery was solved!

December 16th - Quiet Tuesday

Well, it was mostly quiet.  I did as little as possible at home, although I did have to run out to the grocery store to pick up some brownies and a few other things for tomorrow's meeting.  The rest of the day, I worked on family history - still trying to get my exhibits done for my presentation.

I must admit that I gave up and took a short nap, too.  Some days I am just so tired!  Naps are good, though.

December 15th - Monday, Not Much Going On

Since the kids were not here yesterday, there wasn't much straightening to do.  That meant I was able to pretty much spend my day at the computer.  I worked on my presentation on timelines and got quite a bit more worked out.  Of course, I ran into a snag.  I guess that is OK since that is the point of teaching them to do timelines, but it does slow me down!

That was pretty much all I did all day long.  Well, other than when I got tired and relaxed and watch a show or two on the TV.  I did not take a nap, though. 

Bill went in this morning and got the stitches taken out and then went on to a job.  He didn't get home until kind of late because of it.  The healing looks good.  I don't there will be much of scar on either site once the healing is complete.

December 14th - A Great Stake Conference

We had stake conference this morning and it was a good one.  They are always good, but sometimes there is just a special spirit that is stronger and that was the case today.  Excellent talks.  We really enjoyed hearing the new mission president and his wife speak for the first time.  To tell the truth - they were all good!

Once we got home, we threw together a quick stir-fry for dinner and then spent the rest of the day relaxing.  In fact, I took a long Sunday afternoon nap.  It felt so good!  We really missed the kids, though, but they are having fun in Colorado.

Our home teachers came by this evening and we enjoyed our visit with them, as well.  It has been a great Sunday!

December 13th - Made It Through My Talk!

Saturday today, so that meant doing some laundry, changing the sheets, and as few other things as I could get by with.  I worked on my presentation and made more progress.  I read through my talk for this evening a time or two to make sure it was finished.

When Bill got back from a job he had scheduled for this morning, we headed out to Steak and Shake for lunch.  Then back home to finish up the chores and take a nap.  What a stressful day!

This evening was the adult session of stake conference and I had to do my talk.  It went well, I think.  I talked about hastening the work and how that applies to family history.  The Saturday sessions are always good.
