Every now and then, the schedule goes a little awry. That's ok, we are the Genealogy and Family History Community. We're tough. We're used to disappointment. Gotta roll with the punches, take one step at a time, forge ahead, man the torpedoes, don't give up the ship ....
Heh, if we let such things get us down, we sure wouldn't last very long at our hobby.
Yesterday, I pretty much covered the progress of my organization project in my diary, so nothing else to report there. I spent a pretty quiet evening keying in some previously unrecorded data I had collected a while ago. I also need to dig up the complete source information, so I can get that recorded, too. No major AHA! moments, though. Well, except one thing. As I was working away, my cat Jasmine brought me a little present - a wee mouse. So, I guess is wasn't so much, AHA!, as it was, UH OH!
Jasmine was so proud of herself. She'd let the little thing go, then chase it down when it tried to run off. Then she'd bat it around, catch it again and carry it in her mouth before releasing it again. Poor thing, must have been scared to death.
As much as I appreciate Jasmine catching it, and hope she'll continues to do so if she ever sees another one in the house, I couldn't bear to see the little critter tormented. So I grabbed a towel, caught it, took it way out back near the field, and dropped it over the fence at the neighboring housing development. Then I said, "there's lots and lots of warm houses over here for you to choose from. Heh heh."
When I came back into the house, I was met with a barrage of daggers coming out of the eyes of Jasmine. I'm very concerned and a little scared. Probably the next time, she's going to wait to present the mouse to me until after I've gone to bed so she can slip it under the covers. "I'll show you!"
Okay, this has nothing to do with genealogy/family history, but it's the most exciting thing that happened in the past 24 hours, which should tell you more than you'll ever want to know about my life.
Anyways, the floor is open. What are you you working on? Successes? Disappointments? Catch any mice lately?
