BLITZ-It Friday # 13: BIG PROJECT EDITION 2
Last week, I was encouraging all of you to start a big project this summer. If you missed out, don’t worry, you can start when you are ready! Each week, we can report on how we are doing on our big projects or just report on your weekly blitz.
So, I took one of the big boxes from the dungeon that was chock full of photos. I had to get a few before pictures, but we left our camera at a graduation party over the weekend, so these strange photos are from the computer cam. Pardon the weird lighting.
Emily likes looking at photos of her sibs when they were four years old.
So, how did it go?
I must admit that this project is probably LAST on my favorite project list. But it really needs to get done. The only way this motivation to finish this project will stay alive is with the embarrassment of having nothing to report on for this blog. (pathetic, I know)
So, how DID it go?
O.K. it went well. I took the box out and did about 4 one-hour sessions.
I just went through and sorted the pictures, looking for the best of the best. If the picture was blurry, weird, or made me feel strange, I tossed it. If the picture reminded me of a bad memory, I tossed it. Needless to say, a small fraction of the box remained.
What am I doing with those remaining pictures?
I have asked Jamie to help me scan them into the computer. I’m not planning to do any paper scrapbooking. I will just enjoy them digitally for now. I have seen some nice options for digital scrapbooking, but that is not a part of the summer project.
So, I have about 5 boxes down there. I’m not exactly sure because I’m in a state of denial, and I’m only committing to sort one box a week for now. Not to mention, my scanner dude will get overwhelmed if I go faster than that.
Would you like to do a regular blitz? Are you new here??? Start here:
Basically, blitzing is forcing ourselves to focus for a set period of time on hands-on tasks.
Also, blitzing with kids is a blast if you are an airchair general.
So, you can add the regular blitz or the new tornado for a big project. Thanks Mr. Rusk for the awesome tornado. I know you and your crew are just blitzing your hearts out in North Dakota. ———————————–http://www.blenza.com/linkies/easylink.php?owner=organizingmommy&postid=6_11_2009&meme=
