Day 98

What a Super Bowl!! The last few minutes of the game were exciting - even to a non-football fan! Our family enjoyed the game at the church Super Bowl party. We had a lot of good food...

And when I wasn't chatting or watching the game, I was making goofy faces at this precious little man. This is just a snapshot, and a blurry one at that, but I love his expression!

(This little man showed up in one of my blogs a couple months ago as a newborn. He's a chunk of cuddly baby now!)

On to sad, frustrating, irritating news... My 20d is having problems. It won't shoot when I press the shutter button. Well, it will, but not immediately, and not every time. This showed up a few days ago, but I thought it was the non-Canon battery. I put the Canon battery in, and it seemed better, but then it got progressively worse. Am I going to have to send it in to Canon? Or is there some magic pill I don't know about? Anyway, I have rediscovered how bad the focus problems were with the XT. Out of the 67 shots I took today, there were only a handful that were even worth keeping because of the focus problems. At least now I know for sure that it was always the camera, and not just me.

Thanks for following my rambles... After all that fun and frivolity, I'm ready for bed!

Late addition:

WHOOHOOOOOOOO!!!! We didn't check our mail yesterday, so Ken picked it up this evening. In the mail there was a letter from the hospital that did my ERCP's saying they'd reviewed our application for assistance, and had adjusted my bill by the whole amount!! We don't owe that hospital ANYTHING!!! WHOOHOOOOOO!!! Thank you, Lord!!

That bread looks delicious. Can I have a piece?
Sorry to hear about your camera. Maybe next time you should purchase a Nikon - LOL

Elli, first off, CONGRAT'S on the bill!!!

I agree with Sandra, maybe buy a nikon? ;)

Ok, seriously, take a super thin needle, and insert it in the small space around the shutter button and try scraping the dust out of it. You may be habing a contact failure.

Being from Arizona and growing up embarrassed that the Cardinals were our football team I was pretty excited to find out that they've gotten good enough to actually be in the Superbowl. It was an exciting game!
