Bacon, it’s what’s for dinner
September 24, 2007
My weekend was defined by two completely unrelated events.
One, I brought my 6, 8, and 10 yr olds to see Magic Tree House: The Musical. Yes, really. All I have to say is that they had better remember this when it comes time to pick out my old age home. They were the perfect age for the performance and loved every minute of it.
I would like to put out a memo to other parents though, What were you all thinking bringing a child under 5 to a live performance. There were so many 3 and 4 year olds. And how many of them do you think were able to sit quiet and still for well over two hours?
And second. I bought a new camera, a Nikon D40x. After seeking the advice of Otto who talked me out of my original purchase. Also, I bought a second lens. And then I paid for two day shipping, because if you are already bleeding money what’s $20 more. I am impatient like that.
Truthfully, if you don’t pay for the shipping you never can tell how long amazon will take to get your stuff to you. or maybe that is just how I justify it. I will point out, however, that I did not pay shipping for the ash vacuum I ordered almost 2 weeks ago and it still is not here.
Maybe they are dragging it here by its hose.
Anyway be prepared for an onslaught of photos. Probably of crying children demanding I just put the camera away already.
Also I ate some bacon wrapped chicken thing my husband grilled for dinner, and a weekend that involves eating bacon can’t possibly get any better, can it?
