And now, for something totally different.

Last week, I mentioned that I had harangued Max until he just placed a small camera in the cart on Amazon for me. It came in today!!! I was so darned excited, I could hardly wait.

I went out to lunch with my sister and some other friends (at Pepperjax, because it's the BEST place EVAR!) and I was hoping that the Amazon box would be at my back door by the time she got there, because when it comes to fun things in packages, I get a little giddy. Alas, it wasn't there.

But, when she pulled in my driveway to drop me off, I saw the box with its happy little smile waiting for me. I couldn't open it, though ... Leica was bouncing at the back door, waiting for me to let her outside. Then I hauled it upstairs and nearly wet my own pants trying to get everything up the steps and me into the bathroom.

I checked Facebook and my email when I got into the study and found a couple of things that needed to be answered right away, and I had to call my brother to figure out the weekend and then call the hotel in Webster City for reservations and then a friend called and then I had to gather laundry for the evening (Max does laundry, but only what is in the basket).

So, I waited and waited and waited and waited to open the box and play with the new camera. FINALLY!

Now, the funniest thing about my camera demand is that Max has a perfectly good camera for me. In fact, it's a camera that most people would yearn for. You would think I would be happy. But, I just couldn't do it. It was too much! So ... I got my new camera. I DID read that it was about the size of a deck of cards. Ummm ... yup! *giggle*

The camera I COULD be using and the camera I prefer to use ... all in one shot. Because I'm the biggest goofball ever.

Max is ridiculing me and my camera choice on his photo forums. Hehe ... Makes me laugh. No, I am not my husband's wife in this matter.

Techno-slang ... kthx

Hey!! Do tell what Max likes in a point and shoot. I noticed it's a Cannon - a brand we have been very happy with. Let us know how you like it!!! Never know when you need a new camera...
