It's so not like me to admit defeat. But at the same point, it's also not like me to keep banging my head against a brick wall. And in this case, Murphy's Law wins!!! I am sitting here typing this post on my husbands laptop because mine is not co-operating. I should have known better than to bring my computer with me on holidays. I should have known that what I wanted to do, and what actually happens, would not be the same thing. I was so excited because I thought I was finally going to get some time to dabble in digital scrapping. Ha! Ha! As if!!! Firstly, I forgot to bring my camera cord to download my photos onto my laptop. So hubby and I came up with a plan to bluetooth some photos across to my laptop, from his. Nice try!!! But that doesn't work when his uses bluetooth and mine uses infrared. Secondly, I injured my back a couple of days before Chrsitmas, and it is getting worse, not better, so I can't even sit for a long enough period to try digi-scrapping. In fact, I've just sent hubby and daughters to the chemist to purchase some Voltaren and a heat pack. Hopefully, this will ease the pain. Thirdly, my virus protection on my computer is telling me it's expired. Three strikes and your out!!! (-:
On a brighter note, hubby gave me book one and two of "The Vampire Diaries" for Christmas. I read them both yesterday. Took me about 7 hours (much to his dismay). So I have asked him (very nicely) if he can stop at a bookstore on his way back from the chemist and purchase me books 3 and 4. (-: I have to have something to read while my back is too sore for me to do anything else (that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!!!).
Our daughters are having a blast. They have been swimming everyday, watched a movie at the cinema (on site at the resort), had pizza for dinner at the resort restaurant, and made lots of friends. They also love having access to Nickelodean (did I spell that right?), and Animal Planet channels. In beween, playing their new Nintendo DS games that Santa dropped off for Christmas. So, all in all, we are having a wonderful, laid back time. Tomorrow, we hope to take the girls to the beach and do some shopping (if my back improves).
Since I can't download any photos, I will have to share those with you once we get back home (at the end of the month). I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season with your families and friends. Have fun and keep smiling!!! (-:
