So far away modern travel planeWell it has been a very long time between posts.  I have been so busy with sorting Dad’s estate out, helping mum sort their home, and preparing and then going on our Family History Holiday.  We left for the UK on 6 September and arrived home on 3 October.  I have so much to do around the house to catch up.  I also have so much I want to do with my genealogy and have loads of things I want to share with you about our trip.

We did so much whilst we were overseas and I will write some posts in the near future about them.  I will also catch up on 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks as I have fallen well behind on these posts.

Messy paperwork, genealogy do-overI also have to sort out my study as you can get the door open and not much else!  Prior to going to the UK anything I didn’t have time to deal with was placed in a box and placed in their.  It is horrendous!  As I was sorting papers at mum and dad’s place I came across numerous pieces of genealogy gold but didn’t have time to work with it.  I now have to sort it into meaningful places and scan them so that there is backup copies.

I’ve decided that this will be a very good time to get started on the Genealogy Do-Over I have mentioned previously.  I discovered Trello recently and I am going to set some goals, tasks, and checklists within that to work my way through the Genealogy Do-Over.

To Do List, Checklist, OverwhelmedOver the weekend I have been planning out what I need to get done in my life by using Trello to create lists and tasks in order to keep on top of everything that needs to be done.  I have been running around in circles since I returned home as I just didn’t know where to start.  Now that I am starting to see what needs to be done and what steps I need to get there it is feeling slightly less overwhelming.

Well I need to get stuck into doing some work and start my massive catch up on blogging and life in general.

Do you have any suggestions to get myself back into the groove of real life?  Please leave them below in the comments!
