I feel like I’ve completely neglected life the last few days. If it didn’t involve packing, unpacking, carrying heavy objects or PAIN then I probably didn’t notice it.
Our internet was down when we got here. SBC said we’d have to buy another modem to replace the one THEY gave us. They did this on a day where Ben was in the middle of moving. Not a good move for them. When I asked Ben if moving was really THAT BAD he responded, “There’s Nazi’s… then there’s moving.” His fuse was cut to about an inch in length, doused with gas and everything around him was a giant match. He was such a trooper though. Did I mention he packed the ENTIRE KITCHEN himself? I think I did but it was worth mentioning again. Anyway, we now have Comcast Cable. Ben is happy. And that is good.
Back on track… life. I checked the news for the first time today. I took a bath last night. An actual hot, scented, kid free hour in the tub. Today I read blogs, I played with Cassidy, I sat in our huge new living room and ate breakfast while watching the Today Show. It was nice.
I got Cassidy all enrolled in the new school today. She gets out everyday at 3:00PM which was WONDERFUL news because that means I don’t have to go into work at 5:00AM in order to pick her up in time which is what I was expecting. On Tuesdays she gets out early. But I can stand going in early ONE day a week.
I didn’t mention this before because I had SO much other stuff going on but Ben got me an Epson Photo R320 for my birthday. Last night I was able to print my first picture on photo paper and frame it. I plan on filling the house with pictures now. I’ve been wanting one of these for a long time and I can’t wait to have pictures on the walls and shelves and everywhere you look. 🙂
Today Cassidy was ECSTATIC when she heard the ice cream man coming from at least a mile away. She told me she heard him and I told her she was delusional and when he went driving by the house she gave me a VERY clear ‘I told you so look’ but I think my haggard appearance from spending the prior five hours at the apartment cleaning carpets kept her from actually vocalizing it. She’s learning. heh
I felt bad and she was SO good today while I cleaned so I told her she could have an ice cream and she ran down the street like a crazy child waving her hands like she was trying to take flight.
Back to work tomorrow. G’night all.

I love my epson (R300, basically the same). Kynan bought the R320 here at the office and it took a dump. I don’t know what is going on with it… but when working right, the quality of the pics are great. Sadly I’m at the point I’ve used up all the factory ink at home.. now i have to spend over $50 refilling them all but hey.. that’ll last longer and i like how you can replace specific colors when ink runs low instead of the whole thing just beacuse one color is low!
Glad the move went well…it sucks but it’s worth it! Enjoy the new place, the printer and the space!
it’s not as much fun to go off on an idiot at SBC when they’re so dumb that they don’t really get that you’re going off on them…., I think he heard me go off, and started looking a bit more franticaly thorugh his flow-chart guide book…., but I don’t think he found any answers for ben’s ‘give me a free modem or I’m outta here!’ speach. Well, he did, but it wasn’t ideal. Not suprisingly, they didn’t fight to keep me a customer. I just don’t get it. I mean, if I really loved SBC, I could have cancelled, and started a-new, and got a new modem. What a bunch of idiots!
Eu, when Ben asked me to give him an example of the printer I wanted I told him the R300 but Best Buy didn’t have any. They only had the R320. They are so similar and even print at the same resolution.
It’s just aswome. I’m really impressed with the print quality so far.
Yeah, i think the R320 just replaces the R300. Usually happens that way whenever I purchase something… heh. I think the popup screen is the only difference between the office and home
