Making Progress

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

That is my beautiful daughter, Lisa, in the February issue of Martha Stewart Living. It is an article about collecting. She just finished posting a collection a day on a blog. The photos have been published in a book, due out soon.

A very exciting time for her and of course the Mom is enjoying a vicarious thrill.

Yesterday, I bought a new MacBook. It looks just like my old one, but it is driving me nuts! I spent an hour on the phone with a Mac genius to get my Mail working properly. The Trackpad is driving me nuts because it has a popup menu which is supposed to help, but I don’t like it. It is a big learning curve.

I also got a new camera. I had to get a new tripod because the attachment for my old one was on one of the cameras that was stolen. I upgraded to a Nikon D3100. It is very similar to the D3000, but has better video capability.

So, then I downloaded photos to my new laptop and fought with IPhoto which was being very cantankerous. I still need to upload photos for the Twelve X Twelve reveal and write a blog post.

I am exhausted with all of this. I am still not sleeping or eating well.  I am so far behind in my goals for this month. But, I am making progress. My new iPhone is coming tomorrow. Hope that doesn’t give me fits, too. I have decided to wait until next month to replace the iPad as the next generation is due out.

Here is a photo of my best friend, Scooter. He and Mr C are keeping me sane. This is the first photo I took with my new camera.
