Smile Oh no my trip will be lost forever if it is not on Disboards! A photo journal.

Here's the big scoop: I started a TR last year. I like to write TR's as it helps me remember the trip better & my sister & dh & kids (I like to refer to them as the Accuracy Police) can read my thoughts & explain to me why my memory of the trip is faulty. Perhaps this would annoy others but I live with the Accuracy Police and truly believe my memory is faulty.

That's why I always keep excellent notes at Disney World. I was a journaller before I found Disboards. If I write it down it's like it really happened. If it isn't written down, it never happened.

On this trip, however, I decided to listen my dh who had a new Mac. He had this great idea of putting all of our memory cards onto his Mac & it would sort them by date & time and I would be able to journal off of that. Genius! No more spending time writing a journal. I'll photo journal!

One problem: all our dates/times were off on our phones & cameras. Thus when put into the miraculous sorting machine called the Mac, the pics were NOT it proper order but VERY confusingly out of order.

I tried my best to TR despite this set back but my life was busy & I could not figure it out & my Accuracy Police didn't have time to read it & fix it all for me. And so after trying & trying & dragging it out of the Completed TR's numerous times I allowed it to be forever sent to the archives, dying a slow & painful death.

Now, however, we leave for our 2010-2011 Year of Disney in 40 days. We are going to buy AP's & go 3 times this year! And if I don't TR 2009's trip it will be lost forever, buried in the memories of all our Disney trips without a TR or scrapbook to remember it by. I simply CANNOT let that happen. So today, on a Saturday off, my girls & I are sitting down to sort through the receipts (timed) and unsorted photos while we watch Disney movies (currently Tuck Everlasting) and we ARE going to archive this trip. It will not be lost forever.

So stick with me for this non-journalled journal. Shortly to be followed by my PTR & TR of our Sept/March/June year of Disney!!!
