Digital camera and water don't go well together. lol

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

My 3 year old grandson decided he wanted take a picture with my digital camera underwater to see what it looks like. So, I was not a happy Nana. He had to sit down for 10 minutes. He didn't mind that because I was watching TV. So, to him, he wasn't in trouble. So, I then made him stand in the corner for 5 minuets. Ohhh man, you'd think the world ended. He was so crushed. lol I see his mom and dad put him in the corner, but they do it for too long of a time. So, I said, I'm not going to do that. I will just make him sit for a while. As it turned out, that didn't work. lol So, I tried the corner. Now THAT did work. lol

My step mom gave me that camera. I did not want to tell her about it. But, I know she'd ask me about it. I took a blow dryer to it. And it still wouldn't work. My husband said do not turn it on, to wait a few days and try it. I had already tried turning it on. He said, it's probably fried. I was so upset about it. So, I was going to throw it away. My husband said no, wait for a few days and try it anyways.

Well, a few days later, I saw my camera sitting there. I thought, hmmm...let me try it. And it WORKED!! I was so happy. My memory card had 900 pictures on it. It was soaked. I thought maybe it wouldn't work. But it did. All pictures are there. I got lucky.

So, needless to say, I have my camera put up at all times. Lesson learned here. lol

Now, on to better things. I'm doing pretty good on my diet. Well, I can do better, but cutting out all sweets has helped me a whole lot. All together I've lost 8 pounds. That's only in a 3 week time period. So, starting today, I am going to eat 3 healthy meals a day, and drink my water. Leaving the sodas ALONE!! lol I am also going to have a snack if I happen to get hungry between the meals. Of course it will be probably baby carrots. I LOVE baby carrots. lol

Ok, I hope everyone has a bless day!

    Thank you all.

    DBailey. I know what you mean. I had a video camera stolen, luckily we had just put in a new disk. This video camera was the best camera I've ever had. My daughter's friend stole it. We can't prove it, but he was the only one here in the 1 week time period. couldn't have been just anyone when nothing else was taken or even touched. Just the camera and the charger.

    I really hate when people steal from me. I am a VERY giving person. Just ask me and I will see what I can do. Don't have to steal from me. Some people just don't get the picture.
