Okay so maybe...

My printer has been giving me grief--pulls the paper through only on one side and so misfeeds and can't print.

Okay, so it's one of those cheap ones that sometimes it's cheaper to get a new printer than to buy ink for it, but hey--sometimes that's where you gotta go. In fact, I just a couple of weeks ago invested my nest-egg in ink cartridges, as it's been telling me for three months that the ink supply is low. The first actual evidence that that was true was some websites that I printed out that were, to say the least, funny streaky nowhere near true colors.

But it hasn't gone completely blank yet, so the new cartridges are still in the bag with the receipt, and I should have no problem returning them.

So I am going to have to go either get another cheap printer, or actually cough up the dough for a good one that will last a while (if that's even remotely possible for one to last a while for me) and be considerably more environmentally friendly as I wouldn't have so many old cheap ones to discard.

So in today's e-mail is a coupon for my favorite office supply store for $10 on a $50 purchase (I used the last one that came on the ink cartridges!!) Excellent! I'll just print that off and have it handy when I go to town.

What is wrong with that statement?

I'll just print it off...

Arrrgh!!!

I go through printers like other people go through socks. Hope you find one!

You could email the coupon to a friend and get them to print it.

I'm just popping over after visiting Heidi's family adventure blog. I must say I laughed at the last line. Oh, how many of us have had that printer problem.

Love the blog, I'll be back :)
