All of these thoughts were because of my wishful thinking for these GeneaBlogger Winter Games. I felt so proud that I had entered some sources last night, and thought about how many more I really need to do. Maybe I should just focus on citations for the games? Maybe I could earn each available medal just for that category! What an awesome feeling that would be to enter 150 source citations, and earn a bronze, silver, gold, diamond and platinum medal all in one category! I am dreaming on I am afraid.
I visioned accomplishing so much with the Winter Games, and yet over half of the games are already over. I can honestly say I did do a few more citations, 10 to be exact (a total of 21) which brings me to a silver medal in that category.
The little free time I may have had to work on these games, I have actually been spending on filing over 100 digital files I needed desperately to organize. I have been receiving many pictures, stories, obituaries and files on one leg of my Norwegian side of the family, thanks to a wonderful, fantastic, sharing cousin! Upon doing this, I didn't realize that I actually accomplished another task or two or three (yeah) with the games under the category "Organize your files!"
Without even trying hard, I accomplished these tasks ~ #B, #D, #E which earns a gold medal so far in that category. I am beginning to think I have been playing the games all along, performing tasks and not even realizing it. I need to really take a closer look again at those tasks...
Now I just need to figure out how my Norwegian transcribing fits into these games.
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
