It's February and I'm done with winter. Not that we've really had much winter weather, but the relentless barrage of rain has been slow and torturous. So, I find myself rummaging through stuff, trying to clean and "get organized" (which is a never-ending battle.)
As I "clean" I remember I needed to:
Update the address book ( finding returned Christmas cards I saved just so I could remember to update them.)
Which leads me to clean out the junk drawer (after trying to find that mini size screwdriver to fix the glasses that got set aside for just this occasion.)
Which is when I find the old thumb-drive and remember I need to make room on my computer.
Which has got me running software to clean out the junk files.
Which takes me to the bulging photo file with all the duplicate photos.
Which has me spending hours going through decades of hairs styles, fashion statements, career choices, friends, missed loved ones, and car obsessions. If one really wants to measure time, go through your old photos. Find the gems, Relish in the memories. And feel free to laugh out loud.
We have the best job ever!
