red bud buds that aren't well.... red....
I broke my camera lens. But not in the way you may think.
While at the zoo last week the camera "jumped" off the back of the stroller (seriously, I have NO idea how it got bumped off) and when it fell my lens went flying off and the mounting pieces inside broke off. So, I'm currently lens-less.
The last picture I took before my the lens disaster
As some of you may have seen on twitter, I did order a new 50mm lens (early b-day present!) but it's currently on back order and my other lens is being fixed (by THE only guy in town here that fixes cameras!) but it will take approximately 2 weeks for me to get it back.
....the only "camera" I have right now is on my iPhone.
It takes okay pictures but not awesome ones. And me? Well, I like to take pictures so I'm kinda at a loss. But I'm also trying to just enjoy the moment for the moment instead of it always being an "oooh, oooh, this would make a great picture!!" moment, you know?

Yeah, you know.
But admittedly, it's hard.
Oh and Baby K is SO very close to "The Age of Maximum Cuteness" that I can hardly take it and I want to take her picture all the time. I know, it's a disease.
Also, I got mah hairs did this weekend and my "girl" (doesn't everyone call their hairdresser "my girl" or "my guy"?) cut a little more off than I wanted. I know it grows back but still. Why'd she go and do that? Of course in a couple of months when it's CRAZYASASUPERLUNATIC hot and humid here then I'll probably be at the salon door begging for her to chop it of so, there's that.
mah "new" hair
On a COMPLETELY different note, it's been interesting having an almost 7 year old and him asking questions about what happened in Japan. His sensitive heart keeps asking about the people there. Tonight he even prayed for any children that may have lost their parents in the tragedy. So heart-breaking but I was so proud of him. Thankfully he doesn't seem too worried that something like that would happen here (you know how kids brains work...) and he's not scared, just concerned I think... What are you saying to your kiddos about what's happened and is still going on in Japan?
Oh and to change the subject one more time, I'm back "low-carbing" it since I want to lose a few more pounds and Tim and I both gave up alcohol for Lent. So, if I seem a little testy.... (all at the same time my camera is broken!??!?!) I'll do my best to stay my same, happy, mostly chipper self but just in case I DON'T, well, you'll know why.
When's Easter again??
