I’m going to have to make this quick because I am fading fast.  Yes, it’s only 9:32PM.  I’m turning 40 in a few months so get off my back.

My parents are getting a beautiful, new, remodeled kitchen and I’m so excited for them!!!  I’m seriously dying to be down there, if for no other reason than to sit back and watch all the work.  I could watch people work all day.

In an effort to contribute to the cause, I have been unzipping the folders with pictures my mom emails and putting them on various web sites for people to see.  In my mind, this was a beautiful plan.  I would put them on Shutterfly (because that was the only site that came to mind when I first dreamed up my beautiful plan) into an “album”, then add pictures to the “album” periodically.  People could come back and see the updates anytime they wanted.

Well, the “album” I created was a one-time deal and it wouldn’t let me add any pictures.  Scratch the beautiful plan.  But now I was already committed, so I came up with what I like to call the mediocre plan.  In this plan, I would use a previously created “share site”, also on Shutterfly, email the link to everyone and upload pictures and everyone could go see them and there would be much cheering and someone would erect a statue in my honor.  Well, maybe not that last part, but you know what I mean.

Then I got the emails saying “I can’t access your share site”.  Seriously?  Is this false advertising?  Why name it a SHARE site, then refuse to allow the people I have SHARED it with access???  Scratch the mediocre plan.

I am now down to my third and final attempt to place the photos in a central location for all to view.  At this point, I’m not sure anyone is even interested anymore, but I am nothing if not obsessive.  So call it the I’m-too-tired-to-care-anymore-plan.  And here are the details:

Below, you will (hopefully) discover a link.  If you click said link, you will (again, cross your fingers) be taken to a Picasa web album which currently houses all 77 pictures of the Great Kitchen Remodel of 2010.  Bethany has also created a Picasa album, but I haven’t asked her permission to share the link so I will add that later if she approves.  If mom sends more pictures, I will add them to this album in the hopes that it will update it for you, as well.

Now, here’s the really important part.  If you don’t care about my parents’ kitchen, don’t click the link.  If you can’t find a link, or if the link doesn’t work for some reason, leave me a comment.  Who knows?  Maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and I’ll have the mental capacity to fight the internet (cue theme music from “Rocky”).  Good luck.  God bless.  Good night.
