Hi guys!

I hope you are all having a good week so far! Yesterday I was off work, and woke up to a sick doggie - she had diarrhea all day - and anyone with an inside dog knows what this means - following them around the house with a carpet shampooer! I felt so sorry for her. I still don't know what exactly made her sick, but I suspect easter candy that one of my kids left within her reach. All she wanted to do was lay in her kennel all day. Today she seems to be feeling better and greeted me at the door when I came home from work, wagging her tail. All good signs in my opinion!

Although the beginning of my day started off bad it did get better! On Sunday I ordered an HP B8350 printer from Circuit City that prints large pages - up to 13" x 19"! Anyone who scrapbooks knows how exciting that is!!! When I ordered it I paid extra for 2 day delivery because I clearly have no patience. Plus I wanted to be sure it would get here when I was home. Well- I kept checking the status of the order relentlessly and it kept saying estimated ship date 4-14, estimated arrival 4-15. It never said that it shipped though. So, after cleaning up Lexi's mess on the carpet (YUCK!!!), I got on my phone to call and check the status of the printer. As I was on the phone in my automated phone call (press 1 to check the status of your order . . . blah blah blah), I look out the door and I see a Fed Ex truck stop at my house! Yipee - it came and it was only 9:30 in the morning!!! I felt like hugging the Fed Ex man but thought that might be a bit awkward so I didn't. After I took it out of the box and set it up, I attempted to install the software with the CD that came with it. However, I kept getting an error mesage and it wouldn't install. After trying twice (did I mention that I have no patience???) I downloaded the driver from the internet, installed it and was good to go. Here is a pic of my shiny new printer for your enjoyment! Talk to you all soon - off to play with my new toy!
