so with part of our tax return, i got seven sorts of excited about a two terabyte (2 TB) external hard drive, and bought it. one of those seven sorts of excited primarily dealt with all the cds worth of images i have, and need to preserve in a better way.
i discovered problems with a disc from 2005 while putting together lynn’s little picture disc for her baptism. yeah, I remember totally reading an article years ago in creating keepsakes about how long those discs will last, yada yada yada.. and yup, years later, i am finally doing something about it!
sadly, the one picture i was after on that one disc, not able to bring it up…
(yeah.. so I got this thing back in.. it was a while ago, and now, I am really getting to my precious preserving?.. see, I suck at stuff.)
so here i am, before any more time is wasted, getting around to putting all of those discs onto that hard drive.
(helps that i can’t seem to sleep..)
it is a bittersweet thing to do.
i give you reasons why:
(most of them circa 2006)
lynn still gives me this dirty look:
sad to see that lynnie-lou wore this shirt not that long ago, and now peyton fits into it.
don’t believe me, see the header…
but glad to know that they are still this close…
i just can’t help but wonder where the time has gone..
we sat and watched the girls swim tonight. all three of them, going all over the pool, jumping off the diving board, totally belly-flopping, but loving it. laughing, playing, splashing together…
i am afraid to blink.
i see where we are, completely loving it, but remember all too well where we just were. to be completely honest, i am a little homesick for it.
oh my goodness… there are so many more like this.
