My Christmas Present to Me!

I had waited until Christmas Eve to go shopping for my family. For months, this was my plan. It would be payday and no bills due that couldn't wait. Purchases of little things here and there for everyone on my list, were made since summer. When this week came and my family fell apart, I wasn't empty handed with gifts, but decided I had enough for everyone. I didn't need to get anything more for anyone. I felt it was time to treat myself. I deserved it.

My original intent of this journal was to be more of a "photo journal" of my life as I see it, and I've been very disappointed with my old camera. It is really old. Photos not turning out as I'd hoped. This new camera is the most camera I could find for what I could afford. I have great expectations for this new camera. It has so many more options and technical things than my first digital camera. I'm so excited! It was shipped today from NYC and I should receive it Wednesday. I can't wait!

Hey, is that a Fujifilm Finepix S5000 or S5001? I HAVE that camera and I swear by it! In fact I know several people who have since changed from the digital they had to this camera. It's an AWESOME camera and won't do you wrong. :-) I want the Fujifilm S20 next. I have to do some serious savings for that one. Anyway, I'm glad you got a digital and I KNOW you'll love the camera you got. :-)

Oh, you are going to have so much fun with the new camera. You will have to show some more pics of those fur babies. I got a Kodak Easyshare DX7590 w/ the 10x zoom from Hubby for Christmas. (I love to zoom!) Congrats!!!!
