An early birthday present from Husband. It's a Polaroid printer that instantly prints photos from a camera phone through BlueTooth, or a digi cam, through a USB cord. I've been eying this thing since last Christmas, but couldn't justify $100 bucks for it, especially since it came with only 10 sheets of photo paper. The price has come down through out the year, and Husband has been insisting that I get it, but I refused. Have I mentioned that I'm pretty cheap? Anyway, it was $39 bucks at Sam's Wholesale, including a carrying case and 40 sheets of photo paper. I still refused. He surprised me with it Sunday. :) It's a really neat little tool, and the quality is better than I expected. The best part is that it uses no ink, the paper is a special type that reacts to heat. Plus the paper is sticky backed! Who doesn't love stickers?
Once again, I'm sitting in a hotel room in Houston while Ian is in a class for the week. Good news? We are near the Galleria instead of an hour away, near the airport. Bad news? Still too far to walk anywhere. Ok, it probably isn't, but the older I get, the more terrified I am of going out alone in a city I don't know well. When I was 17 I took a bus to NYC to meet a boy I met on the internet, and I had a blast. Today I'm 27 and nearly stopped breathing on the drive into town because I just knew we were going to get in an accident. When did I become so frightened of everything?
There is other stuff going on in my life that I'm not happy about. Stuff that I can't write about, which really seems to negate the purpose of having a blog about one's life. Constantly I'm having to tell myself that things could be way worse, that I should be happy. Usually I only have to remind myself of this once in a blue moon, now it seems to be several times a day.
What is my purpose?
