***I apologize ahead of the time for the length of this post. It is long and you have been warned!**** So last night I decided I had not printed ANY of the
3,000,000 1500 pictures that I have taken all year long. Yes, I said ALL YEAR LONG! Well at least I haven't ordered any since almost the beginning of the year. So when I sat down on the couch to relax and watch some TV I decided to upload them to Shutterfly so I can at least then log on and go through them all when I have time and get them ordered for scrap booking this winter. You see I have no excuse for not ordering pictures like every month because I always do a prepaid plan to get the best price. And I usually always have a free shipping code. There really is no excuse. I just plain upload from my camera almost every week and leave them sit on the laptop. And it is not because I don't have time or can't make the time because obviously I upload pictures all of the time for blog posts. It is just something that I loathe dread doing and so I don't. So I think this year I will just make a commitment to myself to order prints every month or two so that I don't have to go through this all of the time. Oh, and where I was originally going with this (so sorry) is about what happened last night when I did upload pictures. Boy did I get off track. I do better when I talk about a picture I uploaded!! Anyway.... I was going through and picking pictures off of the laptop that I wanted to possibly order. Well when it was time to head to bed I had about 659 chosen. So I hit start and realized what a bad idea it was to select that many. I decided to just let them upload overnight and I'd check them in the morning. After I got out of the shower this morning the computer said that my upload had crashed and did I want to send a report. I almost died on the spot. Thought I killed the laptop. I just exited out of everything and shut down the computer. The whole point of this happy post is that when I logged into Shutterfly tonight 549 of the pictures were in my album. So I didn't crash it until it hit 550 or so. Do you think it just got tired and thought "what the heck was this crazy person thinking uploading that many photos?" I will never know but I am very thankful that I did not have to once again go through a years worth of photos. I think I might have just lied and told everyone my computer crashed and I had no pictures from the year. That would have almost been the truth! Have a great Thursday!
