Happy Saturday, everyone!
I don’t know about you, but all this quarantine and stay-at-home business has thrown me all off. I’ve been working at home (my day job is as a Title Agent) since mid-March. While my commute to the office is not far at all, I embraced the extra time I was given. I made list after list of things I wanted to get caught up on, as well as new things to try. I just knew that I was going to come out of the other side of this quarantine with so many amazing projects done!
Fast forward to today and I’ll be heading back to the office in the coming week. As I look back, I feel like I accomplished nothing. I actually did little to no genealogy work in the month of April. I realize now, that while I had my long list of things I really wanted to do, what I really needed was a break. I think I had just got so wrapped up in my “there’s something to do every minute” life, that when I had the extra time I felt like I needed to fill it with something. Now I’m sitting here not sure how to feel about my quarantine experience.
I’m giving myself grace. Not everybody is going to come out of this quarantine having accomplished everything that they set out to. While I may not have done much genealogy research, I was able to put in motion a couple of genealogy projects that I’m really excited about (detail to come!). Also, I’ve made plans to keep the website consistently updated and I’ll be bringing back the newsletter! I’m refreshed and so excited to continue on this genealogy journey with you!
