I found the answer in a Groupon for scanmyphotos.com. You can send them hundreds of photos they'll scan into digital files on a DVD (and return the originals, of course). Even sending them off to someone else requires some work (like being sure to label them so you'll know what they are when you get them back), so it's easy to procrastinate on even this solution. The magic is in the deadline, created by the coupon's expiration date. Put a reminder in your calendar, and when that date gets close, you'll be very motivated to get your photos sent off.
Once you get your DVD back, upload the images to your favorite photo-sharing site and/or a company that can print photo albums. You can create photo albums for every major trip you've taken, for important eras of your life (like college), or for each of your children. Once in book form, you'll be much more likely to see them and enjoy them. Also, your high school friends on Facebook will get a kick out of seeing themselves from so long ago.
