PUTTING IT TO THE TEST
The zoom on this baby is 15X instead of the old 3X and it's fabulous. Also, night mode picks up much more light when it's dark out.
And the macro on this is much better too, I can get much closer "closeups".
Today I bought a camera bag, extra lithium battery and extra memory card. I'm going to have fun slowly learning things with this and getting to know the settings.
On a crappy note, tonight is my last night before I head back to work, and with 11 days off you'd think I'd have been happily catching up on sleep. Not so. For the last week and a half I haven't been able to fall asleep before 5, 6 or 7 a.m. and I'm just exhausted.
Hubby's laser throat surgery has really helped the snoring a lot. But the other reason he keeps me awake is his tossing and turning. He can't help it, but still it's hard for me to sleep.
We have a kingsize bed, but the mattress is "split". (not just the box spring) Hubby's side is harder and mine is softer. It looks like this (I've drawn a line down the mattress)
What we've decided to do is separate the beds about a hand's breadth, just enough to be able to make the beds up easily with twin size sheets (extra long) instead of using kingsize bedding that we share. This way when he tosses around I won't feel a thing. And presumably I'll sleep better!!
As it's fairly cramped in there already, we'll have to move the extra dresser out so I've room to move my bed away from his about 6 inches or so. What I've had to do then is shop for new bedding, which sister Pammie and I did today while out on our grocery run. We found some really nice sheets that are 300 count cotton. They were out of Extra Long Twin sizes though (which we need as they have the length of our king size mattress) but the fitted sheets fit an extra deep mattress (18") so that along with the elastic sheet clamps I got for the corners should fit nicely.
Now I just have to have a day to launder the new bedding, get hubby to move the dresser out, and I'm set. I HOPE THIS WORKS AND I SLEEP BETTER!
I hope you all had a great Christmas, we sure did. Nice and quiet, which the older I get, the more I like. Have a great New Years everyone, I wish you all a 2008 full of blessings! Take good care of each other, we're all we got!
