I managed to sleep for about an hour so I wouldn't miss the excitement of the evening! Dagan got the books moved (in reinsertion order) before Leah arrived (bearing organic milk from Target).
Here's the before picture.
Here's the after pictures!
I freed up some extra storage space, too! :)
Dagan removed the brains from the desktop and installed Linux and Firefox. Then Leah set up my folders (that I have open automatically for me and I can travel from one to the other and not lose my place--Leah and I love that feature and Dagan can't stand it--hehe!).
Okay--now, admittedly, I have been having a bad month--I must preface with that. I had been trying to use the system we created for me to store my pictures outside of iPhoto the last couple days. Trying to find where to store my new pictures I've been putting into the McLap for the past few weeks, right?.....
Well, if you are a person who drives by landmarks, like I am, I can equate it with losing all your landmarks. As if you got in your car and buildings have been torn down or moved to another neighborhood altogether--signs have been removed or parts of them are missing--trees have been chopped down--and the landscape doesn't even look familiar. There are still streets, but you don't know how to navigate them. *sigh*
Last night I was fully prepared to start deleting photos from the McLap. Kind of starting fresh and learning how to use Apple's system of storage from the get-go, you know? Instead of trying to adapt 12,000 pictures that had been set up using the PC folder system to fit into the Apple system. After all--I DO have everything stored right here on the portable hard drive.
I can plug this in and get to any of the original brains if I need to. So I can get to any of the 12,000 photos without actually putting them on the McLap or back on the PC, for that matter.
But--I am not sure if I am just extra frustrated because I have been feeling so physically crummy, you know? I want to sit back and think on it for a while longer. I can always do that. But I want to stay away from photos altogether until I am feeling more my normal, you know? Just let it lie for a while.
I have a new system to learn on the desk computer now, too. So I think I am best sticking to just email, the blog, and my usual internet sites for now. Stay away from the inner workings--the grey matter of the computers--and not make any decisions. I've learned that I should never make choices when I am in a negative place. So, I reminded myself of that fact this morning.
Put myself on pause.
Anyways, looks empty now. Look at all that room!
Karma keeps stopping in the hallway and looking up the wall--hehe!
Me--R&R time. This may be about it for me today--the blog. But--I am very happy to be looking at the bookcase. Ahhh! Give yourself a break today! :):)
