My camera broke a couple weekends ago. I was so sad. You know me, I like taking pictures. It's fun to document life as you travel through. I've been borrowing a camera the last few days and wondered what I was going to do with mine. The part that you click to take a picture broke. Today I was at lunch with Steve (another lunch date) and showed him the camera. I saw a paper clip on his desk and had the brilliant idea of sticking it down the hole to see if it would make the camera click. It worked! My camera is now jerry rigged and it's AWESOME! My kids are so proud. (kinda not) I'll be front and center at their various activities with my camera. Seems like that's just how life goes sometimes. My van...that's another beauty. Our driver side window doesn't roll down anymore. Steve took the door panel off to see if he could fix it. Do you know what the door looks like without the panel? Not so pretty. He says it'll cost $60 for the motor. So, it goes on the list of things to fix. It's super fun when going through a toll booth. Yesterday we gave Kayla the job of handing the money to the toll collector. She sat behind Steve and had to slide the van door open and hand the money over. She was so embarrassed. We told her it was good practice for when she's driving. I love having imperfect things. It makes life more exciting and real. It builds character in my children. And most of all? Priscilla would be proud!
(so he tells me, don't really believe him cuz he's a big softy with most of the high school kids)
YA? Well this is my "I'm eating Twizzlers" face. It's the face I put on after my lunch dates with Steve. ;)
