So Much for Blogging Again..

Here I've jumped back on my blog, but I haven't produced too much since I started again. What gives!?

Life is busy as always. Justin has been working insanely hard (over 70 hours/week) and I've been picking up extra hours with my job, luckily able to work those from home. It's a pretty great setup for me right now. It's amazing to spend my days off with Jude, but still get some work in during naps and downtime. I feel lucky to have this opportunity.

My buddy
Summer has been pretty "bleh" so far. June was covered in rain and storms and now that July is here, I already feel like summer is half over and I haven't even done anything fun or memorable yet. Ripoff. As nice as it is to work from home + help with projects for Confetti Pop, I'm forget what it's like to have "free time". I'm not complaining - although, it would be nice to enjoy a day or two with my boys and not feel obligated to be working on something. Let's just say, I have never been this un-tan in July in my life. I could cry!

This weekend, Justin worked quite a bit. I spent a little of my time working on putting together some DVDs of all the videos I've taken of Jude since he was born. I've never "made a DVD" before - maybe I'm behind times, but I just haven't. I don't even know if I'm doing it right. After I (think) I figured it all out, I thought I'd take it to the next level.. Vids from 2007.. 2008.. 2009.. keep going. We're talking hours and hours and hours of videos I've taken during my first years in SC, throughout our travels, wedding, moving, you name it. There's a lot. Again - I don't have a clue what I'm doing, but maybe it's easier than I think?

What bugs me, is I don't trust all of these precious vids to last forever on a DVD. Let's say in 15 years, Jude is growing up and we want to watch these videos, but they don't work anymore. How would I get them off the DVD? It's not like when I was little, and we could work with film negatives and video tape converters.. Am I worrying for nothing? I shared my worries with Justin and he told me that obviously things will be different in 15 years and I will just have to save the digital files so that we can update how it's played when the time comes. I still don't trust computers.. Or even my external drive. I wanna save everything in 10 different spots so it never gets lost.

And a big fat, sarcastic "hooray" for a garage sale I am now planning (thanks to tons of help from my mom!). As much as I love garage sales for shopping, throwing them never seems to ever be worth the time and hassle. So much to do in the next couple weeks.

In other news, Jude is totally rolling over now. It's so crazy how much he moves! I was beginning to think it would never happen. Now he's a moving machine. Been considering the next steps for feeding - which is a pretty big deal to me! I'm so used to the bottle method after 4.5 months. Warm it up, feed him. Warm it up, feed him. Now we are about to enter a whole new world. Not sure how all of this works still.. Thankful for friends who recently had babies or anyone who can tell me how the heck this  whole feeding-thing works. Haha! Wouldn't it be nice if babies came with their own manuals? I guess it wouldn't be as fun.

If it means anything, I promise I will update this thing more than once every 15 months or couple weeks. This post is more for updating purposes than entertainment. Boo! Sorry guys.

  1. In addition to your DVDs, store your videos somewhere online. I have online storage in addition to external hard drives for all my clients photos. It's not a fail safe, but I'm certain that "the could" is here to stay. :)
