Camera Complications

I haven't been very bloggy lately because I feel like I've done too many posts without any pictures. And I can't take pictures because my camera's memory card is full. And I can't empty the memory card because my computer is too slow so it would take years. But it doesn't matter anyway because my camera hasn't really focused correctly in 4 or 5 months. And taking pictures when you know they're gonna be blurry is just depressing.

My camera is less than a year old. We bought it especially for it's ability to zoom in on the details of the jewelry I sell. But, of course, we're also going to be snapping pics of cute kids all the time. So one day I tossed it in my purse for some cute-on-the-go. And apparently I squished my purse at some point and the camera's LCD screen got smashed. So then I could only see about half of the picture I was taking. That made framing the pictures hard, but not impossible. So we lived with it like that for a while. One day I handed the camera to Naomi to snap a pic of me and she dropped it while it was open. It landed kinda crooked on the lens. On concrete. After that it didn't want to close anymore. But I finally got it to close... mostly. But it never was the same after that. The lens is just a little off and never focuses clearly.

Anyway, the point of this post is twofold. One, that's why I haven't been blogging. And two, I need a new camera. A free one preferably. So I'm trying to win this one on 3 Kids And Us. The Casio camera's all look great. I'm not picky - I just want it to focus! But it looks like these Casio's would exceed that expectation.
