Slept late, had a disorganized start to the morning... insert a fantastic time swimming in the outdoor pool at the YMCA with a perfect blue sky and puffy clouds with gloriously happy children... now back to whining.
Spent the afternoon longing for a nap. In the way that Tristan longed for Isolde. So the fact that my daughter did not fall asleep did not make fore a productive few hours.
New camera arrived today (okay, so it's actually a pretty old camera) and it came with everything but the Compact Flash memory card.
So I went to Target where I wandered aimlessly through the aisles with my sleepless toddler saying plaintively: Mama, where are your memories? Don't you have any memory?" People gave me some seriously worried looks.
And here is the kicker: new/old camera only takes pictures when it doesn't have a memory card. It can take pictures but not store them. It has severe short-term memory loss. Unable to encode new memories it exists in a constant state of being in the present... sigh. More trouble-shooting tomorrow before I give up.
I would get a camera with mental health issues.
