Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

Has Your Brain Been Fried:

It has been a really weird summer here. It has been hot, rainy, cool, rainy, hot ... no wonder my brain feels like it has been fried. Barometric pressure is one of my migraine triggers, so, yes, I've had my share of the nasty headaches this summer.

Hubby and I are slowly getting some things accomplished, one of which was a remodel on our pantry. I hate wire shelving and now we don't have that anymore. It is so much more organized now.

We are still negotiating with each other for our fall vacation. We've not planned anything yet. If we do get around to it, I think I might have to work on to-do lists.

Long Overdue

It has most certainly been a long time since I blogged. Mostly, my blog ideas have been excuses why I am too busy to blog. Life around here has been ridiculously hot and busy.

Our wonderful cat, Mouse, is fascinated by lamps. So much so that she broke one of my table lamps. DH and I have been hunting for new ones that are not 3-ways, because 3-way lamps and bulbs are generally a pain in the bottom. We thought we were successful, but the ones we bought, one of the three ways did not work.

Then we got busy cleaning our deck and re-arranging the furniture. After the second family barbecue I convinced DH it was time we bought a bigger dining set for the deck. Our original one, which I really liked, was bought before our deck and family expansion. I can't wait for the new one to be delivered.

I hope things will quiet down a bit and I can take care of these piles on my desk.

Freaked Out Friday - What Did I Do With It?

I spent 2.5 hours at my desk yesterday - not including writing blogs. That is probably the longest time I've spent there in several months. I don't think I got all that much accomplished, but did add 4 baptismal records and one marriage record to the database and added the baptismal record images too! Sometimes I think I will never make this pile smaller. But I keep plugging at it!
