My Preshuuuusss

I've been reading a lot of the current addictions posts, which made me think about the things I really appreciate on a daily basis.


First thing in the morning I make out with this:



See how the cup is full in the picture? It a LIE! Even though I choose the bigger cup on the menu, I only get three quarters of a cup. (Yes, I can manage to piss and moan about things I love.) I fill the other quarter up with creamer and sugar, so it's all good. But, because of those nifty little cups the coffee comes in, there are no grounds to dispose of. This is a huge plus in my house because of the rule that goes like "a dog will not tear out trash unless it contains huge amounts of coffee grounds to drag all over the carpet".


After "K" and I finish our morning session, I usually need to spend a little quality time with this:


See above mention of "dogs" and "trash", add in a five year old tasmanian devil and you'll see that this is "mommy's other little helper". It's for people that are too lazy to fill a bucket and wring a mop. (me) It also sweeps the floor. It helps to do that before the scrub part.


Once the top layer of grime and filth is removed and I can pretend I've accomplished something domestically related, it's time to go curse that slimy bastard that tortures me on a daily basis. Yes, I'm talking about this:







The trainer? He is an agent from satan himself. He hates me and I hate him but we continue to meet up daily. He insults me and I hurl curse words, slurs and the occasional remote at him. Although I grudgingly admit that I have lost five pounds since we've began our affair. I'm also able to get up in the morning without doing the old lady shuffle, so there's that.


Finally, on to something enjoyable. My new love, the light of my life:




It's sitting in the box, taunting me as we speak. I'm scared to open it. I have no idea how to use this camera. But I just HAD to have it. There are so many pictures I want to take that I can't with my point and shoot. So now poppets, prepare yourselves. Batten down the hatches and stock up on the likker. There will be many bad, poorly composed, out of focus pictures coming your way soon. Your assignment is to tell me that they're artistic. That it's ok that you can't tell what they're supposed to be of, because they speak to you. I promise that when I'm a famous foto graffer, I'll credit you with keeping me going.

LOVE that camera! I, too, have one that I don't really know how to use all the bells and whistles that came with it. Someday though!

Ashley said...

Do you really like the Wii Fit? I'm contemplating on getting one to add to my walking routine.

Need the floor cleaner, have the camera, don't know how to use it either.

Comedy Goddess said...

You do all of that in one day? I'm lucky to get my blog written.

Vanessa said...

I just got that exact camera for Christmas and you'll love it! Guess what? Open the box, twist the dial to "AUTO" setting, and snap away. It's just like every other camera except FAR FAR better. Since getting mine, I take on average of 50 pictures a day. Obsessed much? Who me? ;)

Candy said...

Oh that camera. I don't know how to use one of those either, but I want it BAD.

And I am ashamed to admit it but that vacuum of yours is vaguely intriguing.

Fragrant Liar said...

I love aqua in a vacuum cleaner. I mean, how rare! And that Wii Fit? I need one of those badly. Do you really get a lot out of it? I'm wondering if I need to be convinced to buy one, as I will more than likely have an affair with it if it actually gets me in the mood... to exercise!

Waiting breathlessly for all the poop.

LUCKY. ;-)

Jennifer said...

Awesome about the weight loss!

coastrat said...

Nice camera! If I can assist in helping you learn how to use it, holler... Venessa has it right, set it to Auto and shoot away; it will give you great images!

Have fun!

I covet your coffee machine.

Kate said...

I've been looking at cameras, but I'm scared to make the leap.

Jocelyn said...

Wow, you're about to be such an artistic photographer that even the photo of the camera looks artistic, even though you didn't take it.

The Wii is really peeling off some pounds? I thought it was just a racket.

I just got the Wii Fit, but am too scared to try it. Not sure my poor pregnant fragile ego can handle the insults. lol.

Slyde said...

ive been woefully neglectfull of my wii fit lately.. i need to remedy that.

bernthis said...

I got a Nikon last year for the exact same reason as you. with the point and shoot, I usually get the photo of what happened 10 seconds after the image i was after

I've just found out I'm pregnant!

Oh you're gonna love it!! It definitely takes some getting used to (I have a Canon, but they're essentially the same) but once you do you'll be amazed at what you can capture.

I keep telling Mr. C that I want a Nikon SLR camera. He keeps reminding me that groceries are more important than a camera.

Apparently he doesn't know how great this camera is! :)
