My Journey:

 Back
February 13, 2005

I'd like to say that there's only one thing on my mind:  Mexico.  Soon Sherry & I will be sunning in the Mayan Riviera, and all preparations are under way.  It's been in the back of my mind ever since we started making plans back in December, but it's here now.  Appropriately we're getting rain/freezing rain tonight - all the more to set the mood.  Anticipation.

Tonight I painted the third floor bedroom project.  Also appropriate was our choice of paint color: pina colada.  I keep saying that I plan to get plenty tan in Mexico (to go with my preparations at the tanner), except for my left hand.  That's the one that'll have a pina colada in it at all times.  It'll probably come back frostbitten.

It's much better now that I'm only taking one course.  Halfway through, and all is going well.  I'm tending to be more of a procrastinator, but I started out so far behind in everything after being gone for two weeks immediately following Christmas.  It took all of January just to get caught up.  Only about five weeks to go, then I'm done with course work.  Then the real fun begins.  More on that later.

Genealogy work's been on hold as of late, no time to research.  Very busy at work means that there's no time to search Ancestry.com there, and there's been few meetings in Lansing as of late, so few opportunities to go to the Library of Michigan.  I've started running out of records there to compile, at least for the New York area.  It may be about time to start researching New Jersey information for Decker church records.  More information keeps getting added to Ancestry.com for census information in the early 1900s, it's also a good time to start trying to fill in a few holes in this area.

It's seeming like my plate is pretty full these days.  Soon, it'll be full of Mexican food, and I'll be able to relax while I eat it.  A little break will do me good.
