Good morning, friends!
My parents came, they visited, they took the children back to Florida!
For those who don't know, my children go to FL every summer with my parents for several weeks. Right now I'm in that "excited to have some quiet time and have tons of fun stuff planned" stage; soon, I will cross over to the "I MISS my children SOOOOO much, they are NEVER going to FL for this long again EVERRRR crying" stage. Happens every year. It used to take me by surprise, now I'm ready for it!
So anyHOO...the dilemma. Quite a while ago, (prior to re-launching my blog into primarily my online craft spot) I lost my camera. (I know, I know...what kind of scrapbooker doesn't have a camera???!) So, the only way I've been able to take pictures of my creations to share with all of you has been by using my daughter's iPod. That thing takes UH-mazing pictures! I WILL own one of those puppies one day...probably won't be until I've got the children grown and gone but ONE DAY! But I digress...Baby girl took the iPod to FL, of course. So, now I'm back to no camera. Boo-hoo. I thought I had come up with the perfect "plan B" the other night; using my laptop's web cam! Sounds good, right? Well, I can't get the darn thing on! I played around with it once or twice when I first bought the laptop (so I know it worked!) but I've not used it in forever. I spent an hour the other night trying to figure out how to get into it...failed. So, long story short...for the next 5 weeks (yes, they go for that long...now you know why the crying stage eventually comes!) my little blog will be picture-less. (anyone have a spare camera laying around?!) As I do with most things in life, I'm choosing to see the silver lining here...I'll get to focus a lot more on writing...or, I'll get bored with that and let it sit idle for the next 5 weeks...it's a toss-up!
Now, I'm off to craft something...in a totally quiet craft room! YIPPEE!!!
