Upon hearing this, I was seized with fear, pretty much, and blurted out...hell, begged...for permission to take the one class this year I'd sworn to take and participate fully in: Stacy Julian's Library of Memories that begins in June. (I had been thinking about this project all this time and pretty much conceded that I needed to leave it up to the higher power that is Stacy, lol. I probably shouldn't lol, I sincerely feel she is my last chance for any hope in tackling this project).
Much to my delight, Hubster agreed to the class. Further, he even said that he planned to play along with me, probably to make sure that I do indeed do the class and learn what I need to do it to our photos. (Does he know me, or what?)
So, the bad news is, I'm not in control with my life for like the next 9 months or so, and all my cute little plans and ideas will have to die on the vine or take up residency in that proverbial back seat for longer than they care to. The good news is that I'm relieved, frankly. I won't have to feel all the guilt and incompetence for not getting this job done much longer. So I'm gonna enjoy this journey that my Hubster charted for us (me mostly). And the coolest thing right now is that I'm not even responsible for the outcome, like if it's gonna work or not. I just have to try.
Sign-ups for Stacy's class begins next month, so in the meantime and before the class begins in June, I'll be getting all our photos backed up to Carbonite (I began the initial backup 3 days ago and am only about 15% of the way done...50 gigs is a LOT, I guess.) And, I'll be uploading photo jpegs to get printed so I can begin filling up several photo albums I've bought. And, I'll be breaking the scrapbooking ice and making up an album of Hubs' 20th work anniversary dinner...I figure that would make a nice present for his birthday in April. (Yup, like see? You said start, I started! winkwink)
