My pal Marie's niece came to our house in February to take pictures. I have the CD of all the pictures, and I just got the chance to upload them to a photo service and get them to printed. Of all the services, I like Costco the best but am not currently a Costco member. However, I *think* my order went through because it had my old membership number filled in & it didn't yell at me saying I was expired at any point during ordering them.
I think I've tried most of the photo places: drug stores locally, Snapfish, Shutterfly & a few others. I like the matte look, and a lot of places don't offer it, so I have to wait for the mail service. Shutterfly seemed like a better quality, but Costco seemed the best. That's who I went with this time. Any suggestions for any other places to go?
I don't know about you, but I hate futzing with pictures. I wait til I have a big batch, go through and select the ones I want printed beforehand (writing down the numbers on a piece of paper), uploading them takes forever, then I remember I want to do editing & hope there's a photo editor in the software, then the cropping depending on the picture sizes I get, then selecting what sizes I want & how many I want of each size...on repeat x 50 or however many pictures I uploaded.
As much as I gripe about the tedious nature of such a project, I must say that I like being able to pick and choose so much. It's tedious and requires far more patience than I have though.
In other boring news, I finished most of the playroom painting tonight. I just want to check it tomorrow in the natural light to make sure that I didn't miss anything, and then I'll put all the furniture back & clean up. Whew, that will be nice to be able to check a room off the list!
I also did some laundry tonight and watched the free lesson Dave Ramsey gives. We really don't have much of a debt problem (aside from the mortgage), but I've heard so many people rave about him. I had to see what he says. Entertaining and lots of good info. Like Suze Orman but far less irritating.
Can they have a Dave Ramsey out there for weight loss? It was amazing how much of his lecture you could substitute overeating for overspending.
It was a productive evening, wasn't it? It's amazing that I fit a productive day of work in there too. Sometimes I'm proud of how productive I can be. "Can be" is the operative phrase. Most days I choose not to be productive, but on those rare days where I put the pedal to the metal, I feel very accomplished.
It's going to be a sucky weigh-in tomorrow. I ate 2 cans of soup today, chocolate, and Mexican food. Can we say water retention with all that salt?
