Actually, I rather hope not.
Saturday, the boys and I went to CPR Saturday. Now, the 4 of us are certified for another year. Joseph is also certified to use Automated External Defibrillators.
I couldn't stay for that class because I needed to get to a post office before it closed. Andrew and Benjamin tagged along with me.
We next borrowed the movie "Gone With The Wind" from the Folsom Library. (CPR Saturday was at Bayside Church. What a complex! They even have a cafe open 8-8 daily!) I got the itch to see the movie because Friday was the anniversary of "Gone With the Wind" winning 8 Oscars, including the first African -American actress or actor to ever win an Oscar. (Hattie McDaniel was criticized for portraying a maid, Mammy, in the movie. She said she would rather play one than be one.) We spent most of Sunday afternoon watching "Gone With the Wind." The boys were completely underwhelmed. Although they did like Mammy. I liked it, but I have had my fix for a while. Not one I need to own.
Before retrieving Joseph, we went to Vic's Market in Folsom, famous for being the place where our Home Teacher / YM President and his wife work. (I think it belongs to her father and joining the family business was practically a condition of father's blessing to the marriage.) We bought bread for Sacrament Meeting and sandwiches for a late lunch.
We wanted to visit Sedgwick, a blue fronted Amazon parrot, in his happy "new" home. We inherited him from a very dear friend when her mother died, but donated him to Star EcoSystem in Rocklin about a year ago because we couldn't provide him the attention and stimulation he needed. We have wanted to visit him, but haven't had the time. Well, when we arrived, the door was open, but while we sat in the car as I finished the last few bites of my sandwich, they closed and locked it! I was so frustrated! No Sedgwick. - Every once in a while, I email Ryan D at Star Eco System and he tells me how well Sedgwick is doing - even sends a picture. But it would have been nice to see him (Sedgwick) ourselves. Not that he ever liked me.
I just had a couple of Sunday School classes introducing me to the new.familysearch website. I successfully added my paternal grandfather and combined duplicate records of my maternal grandfather. I also added my mother's mother's father's mother. oh.wow. aren't you impressed This is another thing I should find time to do!
When I was young and raising little children, I didn't think I had time to do genealogy. Now, I am old, still mothering and working full-time. I still don't have time. But, wait, there's more! As I get old, my ancestors pass on. I have lost a wealth of information and stories by not recording my relatives. One always thinks there will be time later. There isn't. I don't know what the answer is here.
