I am feeling good today. Well, actually I am feeling sore–but I feel like I can actually talk without a lump in my throat coaxing me to start crying. Progress. Not to mention all of the wonderful notes, texts, emails, calls and comments I have received rooting me on to recovery. I am getting there. My hand started blistering today, and although that made it a lot more sore (and disgusting), I know that means it is on it’s way to healing. As for our car…we still haven’t heard if it is totaled or not–so it is NOT on its way to recovery, or anywhere, fast. :(
In addition to all of your notes of hope today–something else really helped me forget about all my trouble and my pain (I believe those are lyrics) —meet my Bloggie!
It’s our new, little, handy camcorder. It has a touch screen and a pop-out usb for easy uploading. Records in HD and takes pictures, too! Plus, it is called Bloggie…which is right up my alley and actually exactly what I refer to our blog as in conversation with Chris: i.e. “I updated the bloggie today!” (Our blog is even bookmarked as “bloggie”)…me and this camera, we were meant to be together. And, not to brag or anything, but we made a profit buying this camera. Check it. Our last camera, we bought last Christmas as our only Christmas gift–Chris was starting a brand new job, we were moving and SUPER poor, but we were having a baby and we NEEDED a camera. We ended up getting a nice, modest JVC one that turned out to be not the greatest quality as you can attest to by watching any of our videos. Most recently: here. After watching that video, we realized that something had to change. We put our camera up for sale online and got a lot of calls about it right away. We sold it in less than a week. We still had a little over $100 on our RC Willey gift card that we won, so we combined that with some of our earnings from selling our camera and, Bloggie entered the fam–plus pocketed some extra Christmas cash.
I am hoping to be able to deliver better pictures and videos of all the stuff I do around here, fingers crossed. Although, tomorrow’s project I already captured completely with screen shots (gotta love command+shift+4 on a mac)–get ready for a you-can-definitely-do-it-yourself project.
