Am I making this too complicated?

I'm debating my first digital camera purchase. I'm leaning toward the Z2 because of the zoom, video features, and short lag times. All these posts about f stops, aperature, ISO, and shutter speed have me worried. I've got a Minolta SLR 35mm but I've never used any manual settings. I just point and shoot. There's no way I would remember to change all those camera settings for every situation, even if I did manage to memorize the rules. Do I have to learn photography to take a decent picture? There's a recent post from someone who was dissatisfied w/their photos. I thought they were fine. Will I like the Z2, is there a better choice for me, a busy mom w/no time for a new hobby, or should I forget digital?
