Pictures, Pictures Everywhere...
On Friday night, my friend Kim hosted a Creative Memories class. I had gone to one Nancy had about two years ago, got really excited, bought a bunch of stuff, and never did anything with it. I am a shutterbug, so I have tons of pictures that need permanent homes. And scrapbooking is so much fun - it's just finding the time to do it. Michelle, Kim and I are going to try to start getting together to scrapbook.
One thing the CM consultant said really hit home with me - you have to get your pictures off your computer and printed out or on CDs in case your pc ever goes bad. I do have some on CDs but have almost three years worth just stored on my hard drive. I would be so upset if I lost them. So Saturday night I decided that rather than save them on a disk, go to Walmart and stand at the machine forever printing, I would upload them all to Snapfish.com. The only problem is, as far as I can tell, you have to upload them individually. I got my 2005's up quickly (not too many because I thought my camera was broken) and started working on the 239 for 2004. I still have Sept - Dec to do but I am on my way. Now I just have to get them printed and sent to me and actually start scrapbooking!
Saturday we had a ladies fellowship picnic at Peace Valley Park. It is so beautiful there. It was a really nice afternoon - just relaxing and hanging out. One of the ladies has a little boat so some people went out on it (not moi, the non-swimmer though). Then Michelle and I did some shopping to boost my workcamp (read: clothes I don't care if I get paint on) wardrobe. Things are really coming together for that and the kids are excited. Even I am getting excited. I told Michelle that if I can survive this, I might even try camping!
Yesterday was pretty much a wasted day in terms of getting anything done. I got home from church early, ate lunch and decided a short nap was in order. Three hours later, I had to go to our church leadership meeting. So, my house is a wreck, I got nothing done, but oh well! It was a good nap.
And now, we are back in the work week. Sigh...
