Well, after mono, ear infection, strep throat, and pneumonia…I think I am finally beginning to feel a little better. Of course, that is not saying much. I could only get better, cause if I had gotten worse, I’d be gone from the planet! I have been through 2 different antibiotics, but did not tell much difference until the third one. My ears are still stopped up, so I can not hear very well yet. And, my fatigue level…well, let’s just say, it takes all I can do to get up and go to the bathroom. I know I am still fighting the mono, too. Well, I suppose all that sounds like complaining…so, sorry.
I have been quite content to lay in the bed and do nothing, but browse the computer and write a little. Oh, and watch that sad TV. I can’t seem to find any of that ‘quality programming’. Really, I’ve been so sick that is all I could do. But, I have about had enough of that! I want to get up and do something, but I just can’t yet. Think this may help me?
Anyway, my plan to keep my sanity has been to scan pics into the computer. I have gathered lots of old pictures through the years of Mom and Pop and their families, and of Don’s parents and their families. So, for the sake of posterity, I am doing my best to organize and label them, and save them on the computer.
I was quite dismayed to find a while back that my wedding pictures, from 1972, were already discoloring. Of course, they were stored in one of those plastic sleeved albums. That was before someone discovered that acid free is the way to go with preserving photos. So, I have removed all the pics from the albums, and I want to scan those, too. It really is a shame that so many of us will have wedding pics and others, too, that will not stand the test of time. Have you checked yours lately? It may be a good idea to do so. And, if any of them are in those albums with the plastic or vinyl sleeves…take them out immediately!
