I was sitting at work today daydreaming about what to take a picture of and then I started thinking about my lost camera. Sad, very sad. I couldn’t help but think about how stupid a lot of my pictures would be from now on because I would have to use my phone. Don’t get me wrong I do have another Canon camera that is red but it sucks and it does not do the job that my awesome Canon Poweshot D10 does. I thought back to the first picture I ever took with it back on March 4, 2010 (seems like its been a lot longer than that, huh?). I would say that 99% of the pictures posted on this website since that day were taken with big blue. Sigh….
Sometimes I ramble.. just talk talk talk.. today I feel like rambling so here goes.
When I left work today I knew it would be warm but I didn’t know it would be this warm! Ever since I stopped smoking I don’t usually have a reason to go outside during the day. Can you believe I haven’t smoked in 282 days. Every once in awhile I get an urge but that is about as far as it gets.. just an urge. So you guess it, I totally put the top down on my car for the ride home! Looks like it’s gonna be a great week!
I was so excited when I checked the mail today and I found a manilla envelope addressed from my sister Vanessa. For the last like 10+ years (probably more) my sister has made a family calendar for everyone with everyones birthday and all of the major holidays on it. Last year it helped me post a Happy Birthday to all of my siblings on here. Vanessa remembers that because the day after my brother Alex’s birthday this year she called me to let me know I missed it. I didn’t actually miss it I just didn’t want to do the same thing as last year. If anyone out here wants me to do a Happy Birthday message to them please let me know at least one day in advance! I am pretty sure I have every single one she has made and if I were not so lazy I could go upstairs and figure out exactly when she started making them. People don’t realize how much work it is to make one of these. I did it for a couple years with pictures of Lily but I quickly lost interest. Thank you Vanessa for making these every year! Here it is! Once we get to a month where I am in the picture maybe I will give you another glimpse.
Speaking of mail I have another weird thing to share with you guys. So most of you know about my getting pulled over lately spree that I was on. For those of you that don’t I will embarassingly admit that I was pulled over 3 separate times in less than 30 days. And I was ticketed all 3 times. The 1st and 3rd times were totally my fault but the 2nd time I was able to resolve the ticket and get it dismissed. I have sworn to JP that I will no longer speed and that it doesn’t matter if I am going to get there 5 minutes later I will still not speed. Anyways at the beginning of January I mailed off a check to the City of San Antonio for $181.10 (that is how much it costs to go 17 mph over the posted speed limit). I figured it had been settled and all was taken care of… that was until I got a letter from the City of San Antonio. When I opened it up the first thing my eyes see is “Amount returned: $181.10” and I was like OMG, noooo way. But as I start to read the letter I realized that they are telling me that they are returning my check to me because I didn’t sign it. So I look at the check that they returned to me and I realize that not only did I not sign it, I also didn’t put a date on it… smooth, very smooth. So anyways I keep reading and it tells me that I have until 2/25/11 to send them a check or money order for $112.10. What I want to know is why the cost of my ticket went down by $68.00 if anyone out there knows I would love to be enlightened.
Just in case you were wondering this is the book I am reading right now.
Like I said yesterday I spent like an hour looking for my beloved camera. JP even helped me look… nothing. Today when I got home I started looking again. I spent about an hour looking EVERY WHERE! I looked in the garage, in the kitchen, in the freezer, in the pantry, out by the pool, in my closet, seriously everywhere!!! And then I gave up. But then I had an idea. Just so I could eliminate it I looked in my softball bag. Bingo. The most ridiculous part of the whole thing is that I must have put it in my bag then when I was leaving for softball and JP asked where it was I had forgotten that I already put it in my bag. Ugghh.
