Married People Conversations 2

The Hubby and I have been married for seven years now, so we have the division of labor fairly well established. I cook, clean the toilet and change the cat’s litter box.

Omigod, I CAN haz camera!

Warning: there are more exclamation points in this post than any one post should be allowed. Also, there is some squeeeeeing. I’m not the sort to whine about a situation and then ignore an opportunity when it becomes available. I’ve been wanting a camera. A DSLR camera. And a zoom lens. For about a year …
