Hello again everyone!
So, another week has come and gone and I’ve not posted any info. No updates on my grandson, no updates about my photo organization project, and no info about my research. What is going on?
I could make excuses but the simple fact is that I am just not making good use of my time! I’ve not done Farmville for 10 days now and instead of using the free tiime for research or whatever I have been sitting in front of the TV and vegging out! Perhaps it is because I am just catching up on what I missed on TV or perhaps it is because I am just lazy. Of course, it could also be because I am bored out of my mind!
The simple fact is that I really don’t know where to start! I have been going through my photos but it is just so hard to stare at pictures all day and try to figure which are doubles and which aren’t. I haven’t even attempted researching lately because I know that would drive me away from my photo project. As far as updates on my grandson, I get the same updates as those who visit the Prayers For Isaiah David group on Facebook! I haven’t been able to go see him due to work, weather, traffic or whatever. (Yes, this weekend traffic was shut down on 70 and we were re-routed in a way we didn’t know and we were just stop and go for over 30 minutes before we decided to turn around and try next week!)
On the bright side, I have been working slowly on my photo organization project. I have managed to get everything separated into different folders so that I can sort through them easier. I can say that at the start of the project there was only 11GB free on the 50GB partition I had them on! Now there is 20.1GB free on the partition! I have cleared 9GB of space by deleting all the doubles and the obvious non-keepers. Unfortunately, I still have a ways to go! I feel I might be better served taking a little time to work on something else so that I can avoid burnout!
I really want to start my research again. It’s just so hard to start unpacking everything and my FTM databases are so messed up that I feel it would be better to just start over from scratch! Of course, I also need to sort through all of the images I have scanned of birth, marriage, death, divorce, funeral and other records! That is a challenge that I feel will be similar to the photo organization project. My lack of organization has finally caught up to me!
There are many other projects I need to tackle. Besides being more attentive to my blog, I also need to start working on my web site! Of course, that would mean getting my databases in order!
Aargh!!!!! What to do? What to do?
Nevertheless, I will persevere through all of this. I’m confident I can get this together and the end product will be well worth the effort I will put into it.
Bear with me yet a little while longer! Things are looking up, regardless of what might be said to the contrary!
Have a great week!
