Up until last night I had about 10 randomly assorted boxes of pictures, old photo albums, and other picture-containing envelopes sitting on the shelf of my closet. The pictures are of both Jay and me, and range from before we were born until roughly 1999 when I started putting all of my pictures in identically-shaped albums. My original plan was to take all of the random pictures from the random albums and put them in identically-shaped albums, too, so that they would all fit neatly on my shelf. The bonus is that they would be in chronological order...all of them.
Would you like some of my crack?
To being with, my head hurts from trying to remember when these were taken. Then consider that some are 4x6, some are 3x5, and some are 3x3! Oh, and don't forget the senior pictures collected over the years. I've dated about a third of them so far, but I still haven't figured out what I'm going to do with them when they're finally sorted chronologically. I bought some photo storage boxes at Hobby Lobby today, but that seems a bit silly since the idea is to make them more accessible, not less. But at least my storage system will be more uniform if all of the random pictures go into boxes.
Has anyone else done something this ridiculous? Any ideas?
