My entire little family of three was home for the entire Thanksgiving week. It was glorious.
At the beginning of the week, my intent was to work like a horse on my genealogy database. I had huge plans for all those "free" hours in my schedule. Then life got in the way.
On Monday, I spent my couple free hours having an opinion on something. It wasn't my intent to write anything that day, but it needed to be said.
Tuesday was my usual client site visit, so no personal genealogy that day.
On Wednesday, my son asked me to take him to see some trains. It seems he met another railfan online and wanted to meet him in person. This sounds sketchy I know, but it was a nice meet up. They're the same age and both use the same equipment. This is how railfans roll:
Thursday was obviously Turkey day. It was also football day. I'm a Texans fan, so if you saw the game you know why I had to take the rest of the day to recover. No genealogy for me.
The rest of the week and weekend I just enjoyed having my family home. I was also unapologetically lazy.
My intent last week had been to hang out with the dead. However, life got in the way and reminded me how important it is to hang out with the living. So I did.
