It is a few minutes after midnight as I am sitting at my desk working on my website. Hopefully by the time you are reading this it will be mostly completed. For now, for me, it is a work in progress! I am about half way done and have spent countless hours, well actually I have been counting them: twenty-four.
I knew making my own website would not be easy, sifting through 10 years of pictures on my computer is not an easy task. Especially when the total count of photographs on my hard drive sits at 92549! That's right friends I am a hoarder. I hoard photo's, the first step is admitting you have a problem, close to 100.000 pictures! Wow! That is with me actually sifting through and deleting here and there along the way. Whenever I can find a minute I go through my albums and delete the blurry, the duplicates and the plain ol' bad ones.
As I mentioned before; my life was pretty much on track all the way up to my daughter was born. She is our fifth child. You know people always ask: "How do you do it? Five kids?" Well I was doing pretty good, still am, but the fifth one was the one that tipped the scales for me. Suddenly I was not keeping up with tasks that I had been before. For instance all my boys have scrapbooks from the day they were born. Guess when those books end? Yep, a few weeks before their sister was born. All photo's on my hard drive are organized and edited up to 2011. The last quilt I made? 2011. I can hardly remember the last time I read a book in its entirely.
Things are about to change. As my little 'Hot Potato', as I lovingly call her, starts her adventure in KG, I will embark on a huge task of getting all caught up again! It's kind of fun actually. I am looking at pictures I don't even remember taking. I would just dump them all on my iMac and never look at them again. So a trip down memory lane is what is in store for me.
With all of my kids in school during the day, I will have time to rekindle old passions! Work on art projects, delve deeper into my photography business and my new job as a yoga teacher! So hang on just a minute longer as I am reorganizing my life. I have lots of awesome projects planned.
