I opened one two weeks ago. It took me til today to finally sit down and print out pictures, her story and decide what would leave her little hospital memory box so it could be safe in case something happened to our apartment. Ugh. I feel so strongly about making her stuff safe because it's all we have of her...the pictures and blanket and outfit she wore. We don't have her here to bounce around and create new memories and pictures.
Jill! Thank you! It was still bothering me that I couldn't put my finger on where I had read it. Yes - you got me started thinking about the safety deposit box. I now have your post linked above.
Baby S.uh is at 19 weeks already. I've been feeling kicks every now and again...not aggressively enough to spell out a normal routine though. A week from tomorrow we'll have the sono to find out the sex. So excited. Please pray/send vibes that S.uh shows his/her goods so I don't have to wait any longer. I'm terrible at being patient.
On a creative note, or maybe an organizational note, I'm going to try and organize my recipes. *Cue foreboding music* This is a daunting task for me. There are 973 different ways to do it: on the computer, hand written, a combo of both, software, note cards, full sheets, recipe box, binder and of course how to separate all the recipes. I want to do what works for me. But I don't know what works!! Right now I have a mish mash of recipes stuffed in a folder. WHEN I actually get around to cooking or baking something, I shuffle through everything 11 times to find the recipe, or I just end up giving up and going to allrecipes.com and hoping to find something identical. I *think* what I want to do is a binder system, with the recipe sheets from magazines, or hand written, or typed up in their protective sheets, and I can just pull them out of the binder, and then pop them back in??
Tell me how you keep your recipes and what works for you?
