Genealogy Update

bah!

Topic: Jenn being cranky because school is out and the children have all taken to psychotic episodes… Not really, but it would be a fun topic if I could rant about it.
Family Name Associations: Layne. Sort of.
Location: Barrie, Ontario
Mood: Insane. Is that a mood? It’ll have to do.
Music: None. Because music would only add to the noise of screaming children.

Summer vacation… The bane of every mother’s existence.
Weeks ago I was soooo looking forward to the joy of having the kids home, of being able to do fun activities and hang out together as a family.
We’re getting nothing done. Let me revise that, we’re getting nothing genealogically done at the Layne house right now. Summer has apparently infected our children with misbehaviour, tempertantrums and moodswings enough to make me look balanced…

Jules and Kevie are about to go on a hunt for some US census records… Beyond that it’s quiet on that front. 10 minutes of normal!

We’re expecting company over the next few weeks so it’s going to be quiet, until we come add all the new information that said company reveals. It should be a promising few weeks with a lot of insight into our US and Scottish connections.

No idea when we’re going to start posting open links… I’m getting a little cranky with it all. Maybe we should just post it open and go from there. No sign of when the bb is going to be up and running either… So much to do, and so little time.
We need a govn’t grant… A few million dollar donations and a nanny.
It’s pretty bad when your dreams of winning the lottery are founded on getting gps and enough digital cameras to outfit your crew!

Believe it or not, the website is actually up, it’s just not link-ready… You can see it now, I linked it through the title.
It’s just such a huge undertaking… I hate publishing things before they’re ready. Last time I worked on anything, it was the heraldry page.
Alright, I need to go arrange an activity… And take the boys off timeout. Although thoughts of leaving them there are very appealing.

So this is my un-update… Sort of like an un-birthday… Nothing really new to report… Hopefully I’ll have more next time.
