I have met my new niece and I have dubbed her Squish. After I find a spare USB hub, I will unload my camera and start a new Flickr set of vacation photos. (I had a brainfart while packing cables and left out my cell phone charger, so it's entirely possible I forgot the squid too since it is not capable of sentient thought, ergo unable to choose to hide from me.)
There is mad photo action to come since I backed up one sister's photos and we located an album full of old Campa family photos Grandma gave Dad for safekeeping after relatives started poaching photos from her albums instead of asking for copies. I also have an increasing volume of water-damaged photos, slides and negatives to bring home and work on salvaging to scan and digitally restore -- which is like Christmas to me.
I have not yet met up with saarlander, but have otherwise relaxed to the point of actually feeling happy /before/ I take my daily meds, helped Laurel start her back-to-school clothes shopping early with my sharp eye and Kohl's clearance racks, and located a heavy-duty snap press for a project that needed more leverage to set snaps than my trusty snap pliers could provide.
