Like my non-tripod photo of the moon eclipse? There was really only one moon and it was in focus. But, for some reason I have bought/recieved as gifts expensive cameras and telephoto lenses....but have never shelled out 20 bucks for a tripod. Dumb.
I just haven't had enough to write about lately, have I? I apologize for the recent lameness. I've been avoiding my neighbors who have three kids with the stomach flu and that has pretty much sucked up all my time because those people are EVERYWHERE. I cannot get away from them.
Today everything is cancelled in Maryland because of freezing precipitation. John and I laugh at how often they cancel schools around here. It seems like once a week! I don't think they EVER cancelled schools in Alaska--even when it was 55 degrees below zero. They didn't even cancel flying at the Air Force base until 40 below. In Alaska it starts snowing in September and never melts again until May. But, until our last year there I never encountered freezing rain. And, boy....do I HATE freezing rain. It is pretty much the worst weather condition, and it happens here every other week! It is treacherous out there!
But, I am going to grin and bear the treachery today, because lo, I have a hair appointment--and an eyebrow waxing appointment. This is the height of luxury! My husband is at home today (see also: ice covered roadways) and so I am taking advantage! I've decided the hardest part of being a full-time mom is how quickly I become bored. I really look forward to ANYTHING out of the routine. Yesterday I was whining on the phone to Tracy about how I really miss having lunch dates. She said, "We'll meet you for lunch!" And my whole day brightened up just like that! The Whopper with cheese also helped.
Having a toddler who seems to have recovered from her previous awful spell also helps cure the winter blahs.
