Wardrobe Wednesday

So it must have been 2 weeks ago or so since I declared my love for Adobe Lightroom right here on this little blog of mine on the last day of my 30 day free trial. Well the last day of my free trial came and went and the program still worked! I figured I must have slipped through the cracks and they forgot all about my free trial or caught wind of our current financial situation (Unemployment and all) and took pity on me and figured that if I can't spend money on much anything besides toilet paper, toothpaste and a Costco sized box of Oatmeal, they would let me keep using Lightroom indefinitely, you know just cuz. I even took great measures to protect my precious Lightroom by ordering my husband not to close the program no matter what happens! Figuring that when I try to open it, I would get the message box that tells me the trial period is over!

I'm not sure if Adobe works like our mortgage company like when they say the payment is due on the 1st and you really have until the 15th to pay it without any penalties or nasty letters or what but yesterday afternoon as I was happily using Lightroom as if it was here to stay, all of a sudden it locked up and said it had to close. Oh shit!

As I crossed my fingers and clicked on the LR button on my desktop, I realized it was over. LOCKED OUT! That means I 'm back to editing my photos in Elements RAW which after Lightroom seems like such a primitive way of editing photos.

Anyhow, this isn't lets complain about how broke we are Wednesday or Adobe ruined my week Wednesday. No, this is Wardrobe Wednesday! The first short sleeve T-shirt and sundress Wardrobe Wednesday of the year! How about that?

I am SO glad my job buys me Adobe's full Creative Suite, 'cause I certainly wouldn't be able to afford it myself.

And hooray for summer clothes!!!

Yahoo for short sleeves!!! We were in bathing suits for the first time yesterday. The only problem, was that I forgot to put sunblock on myself. Ouch.

How can the out-of-doors look so pretty and yet be so toxic?

{{{Sigh}}}

I miss the outside. Also...I am high on benadryl.

The girls look so cute and happy, BTW.

great pics of the kiddos. it's really killing me right now that I'm not able to enjoy the sunshine this week.

did you investigate the educational version? I will never understand why they don't offer cheaper versions for non-commercial uses.

Pic is still great! Open office has a lot of free programs, I wonder if they have any free photo stuff? Mr. RK has been into taking pics lately, so I'll ask him.

So sorry for your loss. ;) The photo is still great. I'm so ready for short sleeves and sun dresses...

Oh that is beautiful!!!!!!!!!! (The picture, not the fact that you're broke and can't use your cool program anymore. lol!) If it makes you feel any better, we're in the same boat. Except for the Adobe, which we didn't try out. lol.
