01. Husbands. I've missed my kids terribly as I worked away. As one who is prone to feeling guilty, I am grateful for my husband who took off work a few days over the past two weeks so I could play catch up without feeling neglectful. J is such a loving support. He is my right-hand, my shoulder, my everything. When I am sad, he is sad. When I am happy, he is happy. We live for each other. It is the best thing in the world to have a love like that. I am so glad to have him, now and always.
Waiting for the 4th of July parade || Husband covering baby's ears when sirens passed.02. Holidays. I took the 4th off. Almost completely unplugged and it was wonderful. I love that holidays give you a guilt-free break from work. (It is true. I feel guilt way too often.) I even turned my phone sound off. I needed to be away. It was a lovely, relaxing holiday. Front row parade seats, saved by a friend who camped out over night. Monstrous and delicious everything-burgers prepared by this lovely lady. Popsicles and Boston cream pie. (Yep...BOTH.) Sprinklers and swimsuits. Movies and fireworks. Just what the doctor ordered.
Carnivores, eat your heart out.
I am proud to report, however, that the Rebel has been resurrected. It works! I dried it off as much as I could. Took out the battery and memory card. Took off the lens and left all the doors and latches open. I placed it in sealed bag of rice, which absorbs moisture. After 48 hours, I put everything back together, took a deep breath and switched it to "on." IT WORKED. Phew.
Now I just have to deal with the guilt of skipping church over a camera.
