If You Haven't Noticed

Just a small (okay, very long) hold on the postings about our Denmark trip. I got to Day 4 and could only narrow the photos down to 84. Do you know how long it takes to put together 84 photos and comment about them all? And who wants to see that many for one day? So, I'm forcing myself to cut that number in half at the very least. I just haven't been able to do it yet. Every time I try, I think, "Oh, I can't leave this one out" or "This one was an integral part of the day" or some such fluff and then I peruse and pine and vacillate between which should go and which should stay. I'm a rather clingy little mother hen when it comes to my posts.

And I'm lazy perfectionist.

You didn't know there was such a thing? There is, there is, there is. And I'm a card-carrying member of this very exclusive club. What it amounts to is any time you take on a project and it becomes overwhelming because you wrap yourself into knots about EXACTLY how every "t" should be crossed and ever "i" should be dotted, you just put it all on a big fat back burner until you can get over yourself enough to let go of the anxiety and just DO THE JOB without an emotional crisis.

So, yes, the photos are coming (I know you are waiting with baited breath) and the posts will be finished before Christmas (this is where the lazy part really takes off) and it will be amazing and you will love it and I will be glad its done and the world can continue moving forward on its axis.

And Day 4 will not be 84 photos long.

(Psssst! But it might be 83).
