Still here and chugging along!

Have you ever felt like you are being pulled in too many different directions?  Well that is my life right now.  Not only am I doing family history research but I am active in my youngest child's preschool, active in a history group, write an article every two weeks for our community paper dealing with children, write the Family Tree Firsts Blog, plus all the mom stuff on top of that.  To say I sometimes have to multi-task to get things done is an understatement.

Like when I sit in my car waiting to pick up kids, I read articles on my iPad (when I am not playing Carcassonne on the iPad that is).  At doctor appointments I have been doing most of my writing.  Squeezing in opportunities to get the little things done in my life has become more creative.  Yesterday I found myself making a to-do list very long purely to see how much I could get done in "spare" moments.  You can call me a weirdo, its alright.

I hope to have some great finds for you shortly, as well as some more biographical sketches of families and individuals.  The reorganization of my files is almost done; I am at the point where I am searching through the computer for the picture images my software no longer says it has.  They have to be on the computer somewhere!

  1. Moms are the best at multi-tasking. I do much of my writing in the car (aka my mobile office) while waiting for my son in one way or another.

  2. It went from a handy skill to have while in college, to a skill I needed if I was to survive after I had kids. Soccer season always puts this to the test, which starts in March. Not that I am counting or anything.
