Yay - a day off! I spent most of the morning lounging around the house doing absolutely NOTHING. And it was SOOOO nice! Well - I did do a load of laundry, if that counts. I went online and updated my profile picture, and my avatar at CK, went on some message boards and then went over to B&H's website and ordered a new lens for my camera! I have been wanting to get the 18-200 Tamron lens for a long time. I am constantly switching lenses because I either need a lens that zooms or one that gets close up and with the two I have, neither one will do both. So I am hoping this 18-200 lens will solve the problem. The only thing I am worried about is the fact that it does not have VR on it. Hopefully that won't be a big deal. I ordered it with 2 day shipping so I should receive it on Thursday. I'll let you know how it works when I get it! This afternoon, I spent some time doing a LO of my son's first day of school. Yes - I am well aware that its January and he started last August. You know what they say - better late than never! Heres the LO. Its really simple, but thats what I wanted. I really just wanted to document how he looked on his first day of his sophomore year! Now, I am off to figure out what we are having for supper. I really HATE that job! Hope you are all having a great day! Talk to you soon! Steph

Hey, you are a head of me! I haven't done either one of mine's first day yet.
I can't wait to see what you do with your lens! The only thing about mine is that it is heavy! I have the 18-270 with the VC, but right now I'm using the 50mm I got for Christmas all the time. It is so light weight that I love it!

Oops, forgot to add that I love your new avatar!

Hi Kim,
I love the new pic!! I meant to leave you a message earlier, but you know, it's been one of those endless days that we seem to have. Kevin is in the hospital tonight because he had a chest pain and they may want to do a cardiac cath lab tomorrow, doing a stres test too, something you should know a lot about. He's fine, but this is a precautionary measure by his docs. Talk to you tomorrow,
