Happy Early Birthday To Me!
It's a good thing SOMEBODY has a job around here, because I sure did drop a load of dollars this afternoon on my new camera. Thankfully, the wage earner in our family is also happiest when spending money. That works well for me. My birthday is in two weeks, so I consider this a very early and very generous birthday gift. Besides, I'll need some cheering up on November 17th. The years just keep flying buy and my ever developing wrinkles do nothing to help me forget this fact. Everything seems like such a blur. What gets me most is that I don't even think I took the time to stop and enjoy my rapidly fading youth; I've been too busy being neurotic and fretting things beyond my control. It's kind of a bummer, if you ask me.
Anyway, in the grand scheme of things, 34 isn't old, but it does serve as a brutal reminder of how quickly time flies. Just yesterday, or so it seems, I was 25, on the verge of giving birth to Caroline. I look at Caroline now and wonder what the heck has happened these past 9 years. Seriously, where does the time go?
Now I'm depressed.
That's okay, I'll cheer myself up with my new camera. Once I figure out how to use it. I managed to get the lens attached and the camera strap in place. That's a start, right?
The battery is charging so hopefully it'll be up and running soon.
In case you're wondering, I purchased an extra warranty, since my luck with cameras lately hasn't been very um...lucky. I have a feeling that I'll be coddling this camera like it's my newborn baby. See, now Caroline can finally have the baby sister she's been dreaming about. We'll call her Cammy.
And while I'm on the subject of birthdays, let me take a moment to leave my mom a very special message.
If you're wondering what to give your first born for her birthday this year, here's a hint: I WANT ONE OF THESE.
Any pattern will do. They're all cute. I just want one that includes the lens cap pocket.
