Organized...

I'm trying to get some pictures into an online account, which is something I desperately need to get organized with. I have sooo many pictures that I have to do that it is taking me FOREVER to do and I am loosing interest in it quickly!!

But, in doing so, I have also come across a lot of pictures from when the girls were smaller and when the house was more organized and life in general was more organized. I need to get back to that place. I need to organize my time, my life, my house, my kids and Bryan. Although, I have to admit that Bryan is pretty organized.... especially for a man! lol But, all in all he is really organized.

I have to think of a plan... how to organize what I need to organize. I am a list maker, and well I think I do it just to dawdle, I am a bit of a procrastinator, at times. But, I think I need to make a list of the things that I would like to organize and then break them down into categories and then go from there. I'm not sure where I should start... like what I should organize first. I'm a huge and I mean HUGE multi-tasker... meaning I start many things at one time and don't always (meaning RARELY) ever finish what I start. I know, I know this is something I have to organize and get under control all in itself. Hmmm... I guess I will just try to plan this all out and then keep you all updated on how it is going... but I think if I do get this mastered then I will have more time to spend to do the things that I love and like to do... such as spending time with my family and not feeling stressed out and like I should be up doing something and I would love to craft more often then I do, and catch up on scrapbooks for my children and all that... I would love to have some time for myself then too.

I always feel like there is something I should be doing... like right now... although I am working on saving pictures online so that I don't have them all lost when my computer takes a turn for the worse and can't be revived by Bryan aka the computer surgeon... but there are things to do around the house too, I guess the reason why I always feel like I should be doing something is because really I could be doing a million things.

With three kids there is always something to put away, pick up, clean up, fix, make, wash, change, etc. I would like to get myself on a schedule so that these things are done at certain times and then I won't be able to stress about getting it all done in one day or when I don't/can't get it all done because I'll know when I am "scheduled" to do it.

Make sense?? Maybe not, but I still have to work out all the kinks anyway... this is just my sounding board tonight... I just thought of all this... well not really I have thought about it a lot of times before, but really have just decided that I need to implement this into my life to make all of our lives better!!

Of course, I'll keep you all posted on how this is going for me...

Sounds like you have a plan. I too am a list maker and I also have to set goal and prioritize. The part where I usually fall apart is in estimating how much I can get done. I think that if I just accept that I have an on-going list I do better. Good luck with the organizing!

Good luck with the organizing. List making helps me too...it usually helps give the illusion of what seems to be a huge ordeal to be somewhat manageable. Or at least broken down. Hope you find a solution for the photos!

Do you have a Flickr account? It's a good place to save all your photos. I also have an external hard drive where I save copies of my pictures and music, just in case something happens to my computer. Good luck!
