Do you ever lay awake at night with sleep evading you, thinking of things you need to do? And planning out how to do them? I do. Like Wednesday night whilst the Lord of the Manor was snoring away totally oblivious to the fact that he was shaking the wallpaper right off the walls and I was still awake staring at the clock, I was doing that. But I just cannot wake him up and tell him to roll over because I know how much he struggles to get a good night's sleep so I don't disturb him. I ended up on the couch.
Anyway there I was thinking of all the things I wanted to do, and one of them was genealogy. And painting the dining room, but that's another story. Several years ago when my kids were little, I started on it and got a program for my computer and entered lots of information. Then the computer died and I transferred all my data to the new computer and thought I'd get back to it soon. But the years went by, and that computer died too. I again transferred all the data knowing I'd get back to it soon. You see where this is going, don't you? Yep, I never got back to it, I don't have the program on my computer anymore, and I have no idea where the back up disk is. But I do have all my paper files.
So here is where my midnight thoughts took me: I really need to get a new program and enter all the information again. And so yesterday I ordered a new program and soon I will start entering the data again. And then we can share stories and photos of people like this with everyone.
