aaaaand, we're back! (sans photos)

So I guess it's been a while since I was here. The truth is, I've been procrastinating because of PHOTOS.

I always felt that there was no point in posting if I didn't have any photos to share. And since photos tend to stay on our camera for months before getting downloaded, this meant that I've been spending a lot of time feeling guilty and thinking "I really HAVE to download those photos!".

But, you know what? I really don't like taking photos - having to remember the camera, having to remember to take photos during an event, feeling disappointed when the photos don't turn out (which is most of the time), remembering to download the photos (that I'm not really happy with), feeling guilty that once the photos are on the computer they are neither organized nor backed up - see what I mean? A veritable mine field of guilt and frustration.

So I'm done. No more worrying about photos. The point of this site was to share news with friends and family, and I can do that without photos. It's less pretty, but I can do it. If I have some pics to share, of course I will do that, but mostly it'll just be me. Consider this the radio news rather than the TV news.

So now that I've sufficiently lowered your expectations :o) what have we been up to? Stay tuned...

  1. I am enjoying that you sent that post from your iPod. Now you just need a smart phone and you won't have to worry about forgetting the camera. And who said that radio is not as good as tv? I enjoy listening to the radio. :)

  2. Thanks Heather! And now that you mention it, I do have photos on my iPod (although the quality is even worse than on my camera). Hmmm.... have to look in to that one... :o)
