My camera arrived this week, HALLELUJAH! Now I just have to remember how to use it. And quick! There will be a plethora of colors and sites before my eyes in mere days. So we stopped at the bookstore (twice, Barnes and Noble & Borders) where I grabbed a photography book to TRY to educate myself. Hopefully I can read it during the 18+ hours of flying time. I've keep wanting to take a photography class, just still haven't gotten to it yet.
Also bit the bullet and bought a MAC computer today!!!! Wasn't really in the plan of purchases prior to departure, but necessary. My laptop has been firing blanks for about a month. This morning it took 6 tries to boot, and last week we took it to the Geek Squad, who gave a weak diagnosis. Didn't think dealing with a sick laptop on top of all the life changing events would be the best idea. I have a lot to learn about my new Mac.
