someday my prints will come...

unbelievably, our "home" computer printer has not worked since about june. i kept thinking i could uninstall and reinstall, or magically fix it with an update. i've uploaded, restarted, stood on my head, YOU NAME IT! but the printer still refused to work (although the attached scanner worked... odd...).

yesterday we threw in the towel while ordering much-needed ink for the work printer. we needed the package overnight, and to add a whole printer to the overnight order only added $2 to the shipping costs, so we bit.

now it's all prettily installed, and printing all the receipts and necessaries that have been awaiting printing for the past, oh, 6 months. yeeehaw! i'm so excited, i feel almost normal again.

How does normal feel? It's been a very long time for me. Yippe about the printer.

Yeaaay, that must feel soooo good! We have two printers on the blink at the moment and I am excited at the prospect of ordering a new one. hahaha, I'm just laughing at how having new printers is making us giddy with joy! ;)

I loved your title - someday my prints will come. Very catchy. A new printer is almost as much fun as a new fridge or wash machine. I know how hard it is to live without a printer (can you believe that I said that??). Enjoy!!

booklogged-- i'm not sure i've ever felt entirely normal, but having something that's gone awry go BACK to being normal, it's kind-of like a gear slipping back into place. soothing and placating, somehow.

lotus-- maybe we need to start a new meme: you know you're getting old when...

mom-- do you know how to USE a printer?! just kidding! i know you do 'cause you and dad print everything and place it in a file folder instead of saving it to a computer in your mail server or on your hard drive. :)

beenzzz-- i can't even begin to explain the resulting relief when i installed it... and then... IT WORKED! sigh.

Wow, I totally missed the connection with the title. DUH! Very clever, Melissa.
