History Project

I worked on 'the photo album project' today. For several years I have attempted to organize & prune what had been likely eight or nine years of photographs. Some envelopes were neatly labeled & photos annotated, but most were blank. Slowly (at a glacial pace, I must admit) I've been sorting the photos into four piles: one pile per child & one pile for hubby & me plus a discard pile. I'm now down to five envelopes of developed photos all from last year! Each pile is in a labeled box awaiting album placement. I'm so proud of myself. HAHAHA.

These poor photos have been through an average of two military moves, plus storage. All because I've procrastinated & procrastinated. Now I'm halfway finished. Soon all I'll have left are years of unmarked school photos, LOL. Meantime, the cabinet will not bury you in an avalanche of processing envelopes, photos & empty albums.

I've realized the older children's Jefferson cups engaved with their initials are missing. Hubby's & my love letters were in a goodly sized box & I don't know where they are either. Hubby thinks they're all in the attic somewhere. It's too hot still to go hunting up there. My mom knitted outfits for the kids & they're missing as well. Darn it, I thought I was making progress.

Where'd THAT come from???

I admire your progress. I've been saying for years (um - something like 17) that I was going to keep up with organizing my photos. Now I've decided I'll wait until we move to start. lol!!

Hey!! You'll be much closer. You can do it for me! Maybe I'll just bribe you with chocolate and a look through my TBR pile...

Stupid spam blog posts! >:(

I hope your house sells the day it's listed. Don't laugh, it happens in my area often! I remember how hard it is to be away from the hubster, 'specially when you're sick.

Now if you'd said Lindor chocolate balls (the round ones Borders sells) I'd be awfully tempted...What's in your TBR?

I'd tell you, but that might lessen the temptation... And didn't I say Lindor chocolate balls? I meant to. LOL!
