I am so mad at myself!
Last night I made out a mental list of what I would do today.
Up at 8:00
Take a walk at 10:00
Stop in to see Pearl
Go up to the store at 2:00
What did I do?
Alarm at 8:00--hit snooze until 8:45
at 10:00- still playing on Face Book
at 11:00- genealogy
at 2:00--back to genealogy
GEEZ LOUISE!!! Why am I so undisciplined?
A young girl, whose father I dated when I first moved here, said she didn't know very much about her Dad's family and she wished she could afford to get a family tree book like I make for others.
Her Dad and Mom were never married. Her mother had been told she would never have any children. Then she met "A" 15 years older than her and lo and behold!
I met this girl when she was 10. Every other weekend she'd visit her Dad. Her Dad didn't get up until 2:00 in the afternoon and then spent the next 6 hours on his computer. Her Mother was not the greatest woman I ever met either.
I'd take her shopping, or play with her outside, or bring her back here to spend the weekend with me. I was there, when she was 12 1/2 and woke up in the morning when she realized she had got her first period. I took her out to breakfast and bought her a bouquet of flowers to celebrate.
Her Dad died in 2007 from blood cancer.
She is 22 now, married and has two little daughters. I think she needs to know about her roots.
So, I spent four hours today working on her genealogy. I want to be able to make and mail her a really nice book
Tomorrow I am going to do all the things I didn't do today.
