Have you ever just....

looked and looked for something? In this case a particular picture. A picture I needed to scan into my computer.

Now, I will gladly admit that I am not the most organized person in American. I mean I try, I do, it just doesn't seem to be my forte.

But, I mean, look at all these pictures! I love pictures and I have lots and lots of pictures.

Almost thirteen years ago, when Russell and I got married, we had 9 or so big boxes of pictures. Last summer it was my project to get them all in albums. So, of course, I started sorting them.......according to....well, therein lies the problem. I started sorting by my family of origin and his family of origin.....which led to his marital family, then children and the same on my side. Oh, it just went on forever. Finally, in an act of desperation, born out of the fact that I have absolutely the patience of a gnat, I just started putting pictures in albums willy nilly.

So.......that makes it very hard to find a particular picture.

Believe it or not, after all that looking I found the picture in question! I am so happy....so very happy.

Oh, except that I had to put all those albums and loose pictures back where I found them. Ugly job!

I'll get organized next year!

Now that had me laughing!! :) I know about those pictures.. I have been trying to do the same, and I even bought those huge picture frames that you can add like 25 pictures too, you know have fun with. I have had them now 2 years and still no pictures in them. hahahaha,,, well next week my friend I am going to be on vacation, I think I will find time and do some of this arranging..
You are so awesome.
Many Blessings to you and your family
