Genealogicus Interruptus

What is this? Another genealogy related disease? There are several:

* Virus Genealogicus -- the obsession to endlessly perform genealogical research - for an example, see here.

* Genealogicus Terminus -- the insatiable craving when you know it will be several weeks, possibly months, before you get back to the hunt. For an example, see here.

* Genealogicus Interruptus -- when the virus has been temporarily quelled, usually due to family matters, but the virus will soon return stronger than ever!

As daily readers of my The Geneaholic blog know, I have had genealogicus interruptus for a week now, due to all four grandchildren and their mothers visiting us. Lucas (age 4.9) and Logan (age 2.5) came last Tuesday and left on Saturday. Lauren (age 3.5) and Audrey (age 0.3) came on Friday and leave on Wednesday. These are the major reasons for my Genealogicus Interruptus, and lack of Genea-Musings posts, except when I can slip one in while little ones are napping or out for the day (like on last Thursday).

What other genealogy "diseases" are out there? I'm sure you can find more than these!

I'm not complaining here - I love making family history, and the grandkids are precious and fun, but they are a lot of work too, especially if my daughters are away (like since last Friday!). But I wanted my faithful readers to know why Genea-Musings has not been up to my usual quantity and quality of material for your reading pleasure. And I invented a new term in the process!
