Tomorrow my “valentines” gift from David arrives. I AM SO EXCITED! He still has not figured out that I spent $$$, (shocking considering he checks all our accts several times a day!) lol. He is ALWAYS complaining that I don’t have a bag for my camera.. that is a lie. I DO have a bag but it’s my travel bag, (crumpler 5million) I use when I travel. It’s not really a BAG that I would carry around EVERYWHERE during everyday life with me. WAYYYY TOO bulky, it’s well padded for a reason.. So anytime I do bring along my beautiful camera he complains about having to hold it in the car! “Why don’t you have a bag for this?” “I don’t like you not having a bag blah blah blah I spent a lot of money on this and it needs to be taken care of blah blah blah blah”.. I TOLD him what bags I wanted.. but no such bag ever showed up.. so.. I took it into my own hands and BOUGHT a bag! WOOT. Now my baby is going EVERYWHERE with me! That’s right honey! I know I saved you a headache! Well, TWO headaches.. 1) what to get me for valentines and 2) you won’t ever have to hold my camera ever again.. you’re welcome! I just hope it turns out not as yellow as it looks in the stock photos. ALMOST all reviewers made a comment how it wasn’t as yellow in the stock photos and the pictures of the same bag I have seen on other photographers websites show it to be a beautiful mustard color so I’M JUST hoping that is the case.. other wise I won’t have a bag. I do NOT want super duper yellow!
with that all said, I really don’t have energy to take pics of my kid anymore. The fight of trying to win him over to actually look at the camera or sit still so I can capture the moment is a really huge battle. He just won’t DO IT. You would think with the camera shoved in your face since day one you would just accept the fact but he doesn’t. LOL. Well, okay he might not mind it as much but he makes it a game! I have to find clever ways to get him to look. For example tonight, I manually focused the camera and sat it down on the table. Then I pretend to have a conversation about food with David and the second I saw him turn his head to look at me, (via peripheral vision) I snapped the shot, blindly. He giggled and laughed on how I didn’t get him and na-na na-na boo-boo on you etc.. OH BUT I DID!!! I JUST wish I didn’t have to go to those lengths to get a shot hahaha. When I got home and unloaded my card he noticed that I was telling the truth and I DID get a shot of him.. HE thought it was HILARIOUS. GRR! But then again at least those moments are REAL smiles/captures of his personality.. where if I just ask him to pose it’s a fake smile and forced.. I just need to stop whining about it and start figuring out how to be more patient. OH and I’m FINALLY sick. I say finally because I’ve been so stressed out and worn out for months that I was positive that my immune system is shot! I’m grateful that my body decided to get sick now and not in the last two months! It’s a good time to be sick I suppose! But the coughing and smokers voice is really ANNOYING.
