Writing assignment

My last post saw me wallowing in writer's block. And then I received an assignment from the wonderful Lonna, of Mom and More:

"Let's see if I can help with a question... If you could buy ONE thing right now, at any store, what would it be? Only one thing, at any cost."

This is a tough choice for me, seeing as I love to shop, and have been limited in my shopping abilities for some time now.

The first thing that popped into my mind, though, was a new digital camera. The one I have is several years old, and only 2.0 megapixels. Pictures are very important to me, as a mother, and as a genealogist. I can't keep my children little, but if I can capture a moment - any moment - with my camera, I can keep a piece of that forever and ever. Pictures in a family tree are invaluable pieces of history. For me they make those names and dates come alive - they were real people. Pictures are also just a lot of fun, and a great way to see the world through someone else's eyes.

So I would love to replace my digital camera to increase the quality of my pictures. Of course if money were no object I would go for something like this, but really something over 5 megapixels with an SD slot would make me happy. And manual adjustments would be a nice bonus, as well, although even though I use to always take pictures manually, now that I'm a busy mom, I usually just let the camera make the adjustments automatically.

So let me turn this around on you. Do you have a digital camera? Which one, and what do you love and hate about it? And recommendations for me?

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
