It seems nesting is already kicking in and I haven’t even hit the 2nd trimester! With the recent lack of togetherness, I know it’s important to begin taking steps to get more organized.
I’m starting off by marking things off my to-do list that have been on there a very long time. One of those things is backing up our family photos. I have never had a good backup photo plan. Since I have a 4 year old computer, this isn’t very smart! Anytime my computer is slow to wake up, I start thinking the hard drive has died and we’ve lost all of our pictures.
Earlier this week, I finally went through iPhoto, deleting duplicates and bad photos and organizing into albums by months. Then I started a Photobucket account and began uploading. Since I have nearly 10,000 photos in iPhoto, this has taken a while! I’m still not completely finished but my important photos are backed up (the ones we’ve taken since Paxton was born!)
It feels good marking off a task from my to do list that’s been on there a while! I feel productive and I no longer open my computer worried that something is wrong and I’m no mentally beating myself up because I’ve procrastinated in creating a back up for years!
What about you? Do you have a photo back up plan?
Have you found that nesting kicks in earlier with each pregnancy?
