It's Been Ahwile

In honor of the next holiday I have changed the template on my blog. It will remain for your viewing pleasure until Valentine's Day. On another note, our home seems to be a cesspool of germs lately. Every one of us has been sick at some point in the last month. It is definitely getting a bit tiresome. And then there's the dog. I have yet to actually bond with this four-legged, poop-on-the-floor, whiny ball of fur. I think once he finally gets, you know, TRAINED it will be better. But as of now, I honestly would feel no sadness if he were to go live with another family. So...any takers? No? Oh well.

If I actually knew how to do it, I would post some pics that I've taken with my new camera. To be honest, they aren't really all that great. I'm still learning how to use the darn thing. I think I may have disappointed my sister yesterday when I took pics of her baby. The lighting was terrible and I just haven't figured out how to work around that yet. I got about 2 really cute pics out of 50. But, I'm excited to get to have lots more practice with it! Well, the fur-ball calls. Better go take him out to "do his duty".

Hey, don't feel bad about the camera thing. I have had a camera similar to this for 17+ yrs and I can't figure it out either. LOTS of buttons and settings. That's why it's not an "amateur" camera. But don't think of it as "only" 2 great pics. Think of it as "2 great pics = success" because sometimes you will have NO great pics, and that is really depressing. You also have to remember that "real" photographers take hundreds of pics and only get a handful of great ones. Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it. It's very confusing. It is a complicated mixture of science, technology and art. Plus, indoor photocraphy is really hard.
