Home Inventory

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Remember those great boxes I showed you last week?  I mentioned that Mom was going to reorganize all the Christmas stuff and my boxes actually contained plastic boxes to help her simplify things!  As you all know, Cam and I are Working Breed pups.  So when Mom got busy upstairs re-doing everything, I decided I should help out. Cam stayed on the main floor and  napped  stood guard duty.

"So it all goes in here, Mom?  Hey, can I see this one?"

It was Santa on a Cow!  I really like that one.  I mean ... it's Santa.  On a cow!  Mom got it out so I could take a look.

"OUCH!  He's got me, Mom!  He's got me!"

Just clowning around.  C'mon.  All work and no play isn't exactly my style!  And believe me - we did PLENTY of work!

But ... we didn't just put the stuff in the new plastic boxes.  No.  We inventoried/catalogued it all!  Mom got an app for her iPhone that lets her sync all the info she enters to a home inventory app on her iMac!  She photographed everything, then put things like the date she got it, where it was from, who gave it to her (if applicable), stuff like that.  Mom's a Type A; have I ever mentioned that?  She was in OCD heaven.

Here's a screen shot off her iMac:

She can add more info later, but this gives her a start.

She said some of the photos look a bit "interesting".

I have no idea what she means by that.

No idea whatsoever!

As we worked, I came across some things I hadn't even seen before!

"Whoa!  Where did this Santa come from?!?!  Ooooh, that beard!  I want it!"

Can you believe Mom's been holding out on me like that?!?  That ornament must have been put WAY up high on the tree!  Up REALLY high!

Speaking of things that were put up really high ...

"Yeah.  I'll see you next year, Sock Monkey!!!
... Or should I say 'Sock Monkey/Janet and Charlie/2007?' "

He's mine next year.  He's all ... unless Santa's watching ... mine!

We only have Mom's Christmas quilts to go, then we're all set!  We took a break for us to reorganize the master bedroom closet with some extra boxes, then we'll get back to the Christmas things!  Work, work, WORK!!!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

    1. Hey Casey! Let your mom know the name of the app in the iMac app store is "Home Inventory". For your iPhone and iPad, get "Remote Entry" so you can enter data on either of those devices - and it'll synch with your iMac! Mom loves it. Mom's strange like that.
      Y/s,
