But some of us are.
This morning I did something I've been putting off for a while. Just thinking about it made me feel ill so I put it off as long as I could but I knew it had to happen today so I took the plunge. I took my camera in to be serviced. This may not be a big deal to some people but it's a HUGE deal to me. I can't remember a day since I've had my camera that I haven't used it. Maybe when I was in the hospital in December but other than that, I don't think it's happened.
I guess I should just be glad that I got the service plan so that the issues can be fixed. It had a couple of small issues before but when my flash stopped working on Friday morning, I knew the time had come. Figures the thing I hate the most is the first thing to break. Even though I have a good external flash, I don't use it as much as I should. The warranty runs out next year so I wanted to get this taken care of with time to spare. I also needed everything done before my Portland/Forks trip. I don't want to be worrying about my camera in the land of Vampires!
The Geek Squad said it should only be gone for 1 1/2 to 2 weeks which of course means at least 3 weeks. I speak nerd cause I married one. I stripped my camera of all the bling, strap, Tripod attachment, UV filter, memory card, battery and left it with this stranger with a red beard. I'll be honest, I had a hard time walking away. I left feeling like I forgot something. I kept checking for my cell phone and my keys. My diaper bag felt lighter too. I haven't been anywhere without my camera in years.
I must have gotten up to get my camera five times today and each time I kicked myself for forgetting. I wonder how long it will take before I stop doing that. I'm guessing three weeks. Now I have no choice but to find out what my point and shoot can do. I once saw a photo book filled with really great photographs taken with a Polaroid camera so I'm only as limited as I allow myself to be. That being said, I think it will be a long three weeks.
I just want my camera! I posted a picture of us during better times.
