The Camera Saga Continues!

And now for another installment of Nancy's Camera Replacement Saga!

I got my new camera in the mail!! And by new I mean old. This was the digital camera my parents bought me as a Christmas present my senior year of high school. It takes a few seconds to start up and get going, but it works. That's more than I can say for the newer camera and this one was free. Does it get any better than that? No, I don't think so. Well okay... it might have been better if my mother sent my photographer sister's profession camera, but then there might have been some trouble between me and my Maid of Honor you see.

So I charged New Old Camera up and went off to click myself some fine pictures. And click I did. The Rubys (which I have been dying to unveil to you all), the knitting, my ring, all sorts of good stuff. Oh yes, I loaded up that memory card. Then as I went to the computer to upload these pictures I noticed a small problem. You see my camera dock did not work with New Old Camera. Neither I nor my Mother foresaw this problem. Yes, my cords were too small for it. So now I'm waiting for my mother to track down and send the old cords. She's awesome.

Technology and I don't get along well.You may recall the incident where both my sewing machines decided to die at the same time. Isn't that why you have more than one machine? For just such occasions? Not in Nancyland, my friends. In Nancyland you need a minimum of three of any electronic device.

Other than that things are starting to calm down around here. We've finished calling all our friends and we're finally able to enjoy our engagement time together. I guess it's started to sink in just this week. We went to get the ring sized and Fiance had us look at the wedding bands. I finally started to feel like this isn't a dream. This is real. This is happening. I'm marrying the love of my life. I'm definitely a lucky one. (And I have a nice rock too.)

I missed Vinspiration Tuesday so I hope you will all settle for a Vinspiration Friday. I'm still tracking down a few photos. In the meantime I hope you all are well.

Awwww, Nancy. I'm sorry you're *still* having camera issues. Usually, when one thing of mine fails, everything will then fail within a few days. No joke. I've had my iPod, phone, iPod charger and phone charger fall within a matter of days of one another.

I can't wait to see your Ruby shorts! Yahhh!

I hope your camera saga clears up soon! We have the same problem with cords here too, when I grab one it's generally the one for my sons camera, or my dads, and mine is no where to be seen. Now I have the proper cord but can't find the camera.

Can't wait to see your Ruby's too!!

Boo technology! I avoid it as much as possible. I'll post up my Rubys which are done pretty soon but I wanted to wait for photos of yours and do one big post.

No worries about making me wait, I can't seem to get a good photo of them because I'm house sitting and have no one to take a photo of them anyways.
