Hi! I just wanted to let you know I am still here. I have been having trouble finding some balance between my life (mom, wife, household Chief Operating Officer, etc.) and the rest of my life (genealogy, writing, and quilting) since school started. I had no idea that my oldest going to elementary school would have such an impact on my life.
I am learning as I go. I am loving spending more one on one time with my youngest. I am not crazy about the daunting amount of paperwork and rules that come with school. I love the changes I am making to make my house a home that reflects our family. I am a little surprised to admit that I actually am enjoying waking up earlier and the schedule we are following.
To help right the balance issues, I have signed up for two upcoming workshops in the Bay Area. First is the Digging For Your Roots Conference at the Concord Family History Center on October 18th. Two weeks later I will be attending the Fall Seminar at the San Mateo Genealogical Society. I am super excited because the seminar features Judy Russell. I love her blog, The Legal Genealogist.
In the mean time, I have calendared some time to write a few blog posts. Since I am not finding time naturally, it is time to make time. See you again soon!
