last week the three of us drove to mississippi to visit my family. while we were there i let my 2.5 year old nephew take photos with my camera and he dropped it. now i have the fatal lens error. i knew it was a bad idea, but i couldn't help but let him when he asked if we could go take pictures of pappy's motorcycle. especially since he remembered doing the same thing from our time together a few months ago. but 2.5 year olds and pricey electronics, not the best hands to place them in no matter how pudgy and sweet. so this blog will be pretty photo-less for a while except for what i snap with my phone, but outfit posts and such will be on hold. which may be for the better since i feel pretty awful about myself and my weight gain lately. i don't feel like myself, my body feels different and strange, and losing it isn't quite as easy as it was in my 20's it seems. i've been dieting for the past 2 months and not much has changed. things that used to work, aren't. i need to up my exercise. we'll see how it goes. in any case, i do have a few catch-up posts to make (behind, as usual), so maybe i can procrastinate stretch those out long enough to last until i get a new camera. maybe i'll feel better about myself then too.
