Tooooooo many, and I am powerless to fix it.

Ugh. I have so many photos on my iPad. That number was taken AFTER I deleted about 500 today.

As a self-appointed Document-or, I have tons of photos from the church renovation that I am hanging onto ‘just in case’, even though several of them are safely stored in a Flickr account or YouTube videos. (The problem is that I’m not sure which ones are saved, and it would be a huge pain to find out.) I also have an embarrassingly large number of video clips from when the kittens were little. I should just make a YouTube video for me and then delete them, but again – the time.

What is bringing on the big deleting crunch is that I need to make a photo-related keepsake for each of my students sometime during the next month. That involves scrolling through all those tiny little thumbnails and sorting them. Today I made it through three kids before my eyes started to implode.

I did not plan this whole photo-thing out very well. Rats.

    I remember when how many digital photos I could keep was determined by my computer’s memory. I was constantly deleting. Now I don’t even bother. Put the old pictures in a folder, then put the folder in another folder -- problem solved. Of course, I never have to go through old pictures for any reason like you do.

    I wonder if there is software that would search your photos for you. You could open up a picture of someone and tell it to find all other pictures of that person.

They have arrived!

They have a typo! *Sigh* I am a moron. Before you click ‘order’ they even ask you over and over to check everything to make sure it’s right, and I was in such a rush I missed the space between ‘J’ and ‘ohn’. I’m really not that upset, though. They will be perfect for handing […]

Taxes – check!

Woo-hoo! The taxes are finished and it’s only April 13th!! I thought for sure that Monday night was going to be a tense evening of me bringing Lloyd lemonade while he asked for receipts that I’ve lost, but this year it went as smooth as butter. Seriously, I think we were finished in an hour […]

A place for my butt.

Last week I noticed that the cushion on the stool where I live is pretty disgusting-looking. It has served me well for seven years, and the seat has seen hours of Internet viewing and countless meals. (I am a sloth who eats every meal here.) So, I ripped off all the fabric and foam, and […]

Good morning.

Lloyd was installing a new router last night and my post kept failing to upload, so I quit and watched tv for a while. Oops. Enjoy your Saturday!

More work stuff

Yep, another post where I’m just recycling work stuff. We have a lot of new staff that joins us each year. The afternoon staff is mostly college students, and they rotate out every couple of years because they have to ‘graduate’, which is really annoying to me. I’ve already made several training videos, but this […]
