I got a new camera! I'm so excited. Shane let me get a little something with our taxes this year. Usually we spend it all on bills or new tires and boring stuff like that. But, this year he's getting a new TV. So, I asked for my share. He said the TV was for all of us (whatever!). If he can use that argument, bring it on buddy, because a camera is just as much for the fam as a big-ass ugly big-screen tv lol. He is getting a sweet deal from a friend of ours, but still. Ugly I tell ya.
My old camera has been acting up a lot lately. The shutter won't open all the way, and sometimes when you turn it off, it won't retract all the way in. It had a big ole' scratch on the screen too (I could have lived with that though). I'm still going to keep it for when I don't want to chance taking the new one, but I'm so happy to be able to get this one. My sister's both have it, and it has way better features than my older one. I though maybe this time I should get one that I could pass on to Shane if I wanted to later lol. My old one was a pink Sony Cybershot. Somehow, I don't think he or Garrett will want to be truckin' that one around.
I thought I had a pic of my old one, but it isn't saved to my computer anymore. I would take a pic, but I'm too lazy right now.

Ain't she purty?!

Happy Valentine's Day all! Shane and I went out to dinner on Friday to celebrate because Garrett was sleeping over at a friend's house. He let me choose, and I went with Mi Ranchito. I love that place. Best Mexican food around.
We had fun, but as soon as we ordered, Shane's bff called. His wife left him. How cruel is that? To leave on the weekend of Love Day? I won't go into details, because it's not for me to spread around, but she's a beast. She used to be one of my funnest friends, but now I can't even stomach her. So, needless to say, that sort of put a damper on things. We ended up going out to Payson to see if we could do anything to help, and we didn't leave til 1:00 am.
Yesterday we went to visit Shane's mom's grave. Her birthday is on Valentine's Day (which also sort of put's a damper on it sometimes). She died when he was only 11 years old. He hasn't been there for a couple of years, so we went and put some carnations on the grave (those were her favorite). His Grandma Lewis is buried very close to her, so we took one red carnation out of the bouquet and put it on her headstone too. Garrett came home for a while to go with us, and I think it is good for him to see how much his dad loved and misses his mother and grandmother. Garrett never really knew either of them. He went with us to visit Grandma at the rest home a few times, but she died when he was very young. I think he was 3 or 4.
Then we went to Shane's choice for dinner last night, Chinese Gourmet, to try to have a better Love Day dinner. Garrett had gone back to sleep over at his friend's house again. This one went pretty well. I even ran into a friend that I haven't seen in ages there. We exchanged digits and all that fun stuff.
Then this morning (since Garrett is STILL gone) we went to lunch at Subway. So, I got 3 dates in one weekend lol. Hope it doesn't show up on the scale on Tuesday at Weight Watchers. I stayed within my points, but you never know.
Not much else is going on. I kind of miss posting my fun scrapbooking stuff, but I haven't been so into it lately. I've just been to busy at work and at home. Plus, I may be a bit burned out. I go through cycles. And it'll come back around. I'll just enjoy the break.
Ta ta for now.
