Scahefferstown Yearbook

At my first PTA meeting (ever) in September, I agreed to put together the school's yearbook.  It's the last year of the school before it closes and all of the kids are going to be re-distributed to the other schools in the district.  So I guess that this yearbook is kind of a big deal. 

After procrastinating on it, aside from taking pictures.  The stupid school photographer took forever to get me the CD of portraits and then, despite working for the same company that's publishing the yearbook, made a mistake in his file naming, that caused the software to crash.  So it's been fun.  Not.

I seriously have spent most of the past five or so days working on this book.  Thirty-two pages.  Getting photos from teachers and other parents was seriously like pulling teeth.  I have been over to the school three times in the past few days to get a few more candid photos.  

So, I went to upload it to the publisher and it's asking for a username and password.  I don't have one.  Arrrghh!  It was like 5 after 5 so I was panicking and called the publisher and of course, our rep has left for the day.  So I was given a URL for another large file mailing site.  It hung twice before I gave up and wanted to just send a note to the rep.  Blast it all, the email bounced.  

Argh!  I just want to be DONE.

So I have to call again...now.

I miss manual yearbook pasteup. Sure, you had to develop, crop, and size your own photos, but you didn't need a password to send it in.

Does it give you any solace knowing that reading your saga both here and on FB has saved me from ever making the same mistake of volunteering to do the school yearbook? I mean, look at it this way, you are saving *others* from your pain. ;-)

Seriously, I admire you for doing this...I hope you have it done soon. What a good feeling that will be.
