Stupid Bad Luck

by Meghann on June 12, 2009

So remember that little bad luck pell I had with digital cameras? Well apparently that epidemic isn’t over.

As I was trying to take a photo of my lovely Apple snack this afternoon, my camera strap got caught in the cabinet and crashed to the ground with the lens out. I had the ‘lens error’ screen of death staring me in the face. Not Good.

Unfortunately the apple was eaten without being photographed and I had to make an emergency trip to Best Buy to talk to my good ole friends at the Geek Squad. My camera should be good as new in 2 weeks *fingers crossed* and until then I have a back up digital camera, that may not be as glamorous as mine, but it will get the job done.

Word of advice – don’t ever trust me with your electronics. ๐Ÿ˜‰

By the time I made it to my parent’s house I was more then ready for a drink. Thank God for Mexican Restaurants and Mexican Beer.:)


I had a Negra Modelo immediately after we were seated at my parent’s favorite Mexican restaurant right down the street from our house.

For dinner I was not sure what I was in the mood for so I just ordered the same thing as my Sister. I trust her to take the lead.

She ordered the Vegetable Quasadilla.


It was chalk full of Peppers, Onions & Mushrooms with a little cheese.


It was actually really tasty and I devoured the whole thing.

On the side it was the typical Rice & Beans with Pico de Gallo.


I had a bite of the beans & rice and all of the Pica de Gallo.

After dinner I felt really, really full and was in major stomach pain. I started to realize that the awful pain wasn’t just from being full, I think the mexican cheese ripped up my stomach. I felt bloated and completely uncomfortable. I had to walk around Target for an hour and drink some carbonated water to make myself feel better.

Lesson learned. Just because it taste good at the time, doesn’t mean its going to feel good later.

Once my stomach calmed down I had a serving of Frozen Yogurt I found in my parent’s fridge.


The coolness of the ice cream was just what I needed.

Tomorrow we have an early wake up call, so we can head out on the road before the sun rises. I have been told the cabin had WI-Fi so here’s crossing my fingers I will be able to keep up with regular blogging while on vacation.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Have a fantastic trip!

Question- is Publix like Whole Foods? I’m from the west coast and I don’t think there are any around here..

Butting in … @joelygolightly Publix is a regular supermarket chain (not like Whole Foods) but more like Stop & Shop, Kroger, or something like that.

Have a great trip! Hope you feel better.

I’ve already been there done that with rich food, i.e. the tater tots I consumed at lunch today didn’t sit so well later on in the day!

Happy travels!:D

Hey guess what? I gave you a blog award today! You can check it out here!

Have a great vacation! My grandparents and Aunt/Uncle live near Asheville, I flew into that airport to visit right before my Grandpa died in February. I did a 10 mile run along some scary country roads, hehehe.

I hope that your bad camera luck isn’t going to rub off on me while I’m reading your blog. Damn we are klutzes girl!

Sorry about the camera ๐Ÿ™

At least it is getting fixed up!

Can’t wait to hear about your weekend in “my” mountains, ha ha! So far the weather today is nice, but we’ve been getting afternoon thunderboomers, so hopefully you make in before any bad weather.

Sorry about the camera ๐Ÿ™

maybe your tummy hurt because of the grease from the dinner. That’s what happens to me, since I hardly ever have greasy food. When I do, it’s too much for my stomach to handle.

I hope your little vacation goes well! I love being out in nature. I see lots of hiking/biking/swimming/relaxing in the cabin in your future ๐Ÿ™‚

22 Melissa @ For the Love of Health June 13, 2009 at 7:58 pm

Sorry to hear about your cam!

Glad the tum felt better. I find frozen yogurt soothing too

have a great evening!

23 Ashley C. June 13, 2009 at 9:36 pm

Omg I can’t believe another camera got broken– that IS bad luck. Good that it’ll be fixed in 2 weeks & you have a backup though. Have a great vacation!
