I woke up this morning thinking, "gah, I wish I didn't have to go outside in the cold to clean off the car and shovel the driveway." I quickly changed that thinking to, "thank goodness we have cars that run well," and "thank goodness for the warm house to come back into." Not everyone is so lucky. I know it is no small thing.
I got outside and it had rained all night (melting a ton of the snow), so I ended up not having to do either, woot!
In other tidbit news, I'm loving my new camera. I went from summer to Christmas with a cheapie camera (cut it out of the plastic container it was hanging up to display in, kind of cheapie) we picked up in Chicago at the CVS when my camera decided to break (on vacation, of course). ;) That felt like such a long time to go with a cheapie, and it took disposable batteries. Boy, did I go through some batteries!! SO so so soooo nice to have a good camera again.
Just for kicks and grins I took two pictures this morning, one with the cheapie, and one with the newbie:
It may not seem like much of a difference to you, but to me it surely does. The cheapie camera had more dark pictures than not, never took a good shot if something was moving, and I'd say had a 2/10 record (2 out of 10 shots would be acceptable) for taking a decent picture. The new camera just gets the picture on the first shot. I couldn't be more pleased. :)
My last thought of the post: Hubby's school started back up and he's busy w/Financial Accounting and Statistics, bwuahahhaaa. So glad I'm done with actual classes. By the end, I was just ready to be done. That being said, I'd better get busy editing some last minute changes I've made on my dissertation. I'm about to turn in the next chapter to my adviser. I'm so ready for that to be done too, but we've still got two more trips to Nebraska (where my school is) to take...so it's going to be awhile.
No kids up and running around the house yet, and it's 9:30!!! I do love Saturday mornings. :) Wishing each and every one of you a happy weekend. :)
