I've Been Meaning To.....

>> Friday, May 20, 2011


I have a To-Do list that's pages and pages long.  Projects I want to accomplish, books to read, crafts to start, weight to lose.....you get the idea.  But there are just some things that keep getting pushed further and further down the list.  I'm taking that as a bit of a psychological cue that I just don't want to do these projects.

Things like:

1.  Finally gathering up all those cassettes from our video recorder and getting them put on to DVDs.  I have tapes that go back to right after Nani was born.  (She's now 6)

2.  Finally converting our outdated music cassette tapes to MP3s.  I got My Marine this awesome gadget that you hook up to the computer, pop in your cassette, and it converts your music for you.  The majority of the cassettes I can get on CD now, but some of the cassettes are irreplaceable and should be preserved.  Note I said, "should be....."

3.  Organize all those photos in shoeboxes and get them into albums.  I don't have any baby albums for either one of my girls.  Everything is digital....saved on disks.  I'd like for them to each have something from their childhood.

4.  Finally print out all those emails My Marine and I exchanged while he was deployed and put them into a little scrapbook for the girls to have some day.

And these are just the tips of the icebergs.  Very, very, big iceburgs.


So, what have YOU been meaning to do?

I have a TON of projects like this! No idea how many of them will actually get done...

One thing I do want to do is digitize the scrapbook I made when I was 18 using photos from my childhood. My kids look at it all the time, and if I just scan it in we will at least have a permanent copy!

I have at least 3 craft projects scattered around my house right now, not to mention the huge pile of laundry that I keep ignoring:)

Oh my goodness, I can so relate. I mean, that was part of the reason for my "blogcation" and 1. I pretty much never took it since I kept blogging anyway, and 2. I never did any of the stuff I was hoping to do because I got sick and then busy and then, blah, blah, blah.

Actually many of the things on your list are on mine too. In fact all of them except for the email thing ;) I've got photos, videos, and cassettes to scan, transfer, and organize amongst many, many other things. And blogwise I'm starting to fall apart too. It seems like the more post-ideas I have, the less I actually blog. I doesn't make any sense. *sigh*

Thanks for being a follower on my blog. I hope you can stop by and participate in my, Step up for the troops event. I am a proud Navy wife so this is very close to my heart.

I have tons of pictures on disk, too! I really should get them printed out and put into books. Books (to my knowledge) will never be out of date. CD's and the like, might very well be one day...
