It seems like everything I touch lately has a degree of difficulty of 10. I start out to do the simplest thing and it ends up with me having one nerve left and in search of medication. Tonight Ashley needed to print a project from school. She had to create a cereal box cover depicting a character from world history. How exactly this is going to prepare her for college is beyond me but... It began on Monday when I forgot to buy an extra box of cereal and had to go to CVS at 10 p.m. and send Michael in for the purchase. The folks at CVS love me and all but we are not quite to the pjs and no bra point in our relationship. I actually considered going thru the drive thru and asking for Cinnamon Toast Crunch but figured the car behind me would have some wheezing kids in need of his inhaler asap and decided not to tie up the prescription line with my frivolous request. (see I am a good person, why do bad things keep happening to me?)
In order to get Michael to go in and buy the cereal I had to agree to buy him some skittles. He like any good little con man does not inform me of this until we are en route. After the negoitiating was over I handed over my last seven dollars and he goes to claim his prize. He gets in the car and tells me that the cereal was almost five dollars and he didn't think he had enough for the candy. I assured him he did have enough but he was too embarassed to go back into CVS so I had to drive him to 7 Eleven. Now before you all flood me with comments that "i didn't have to drive him" I already know that. But I didn't want to hear the line "that's just like the time you promised me Skittles ...." so off we went.
So with cereal in tow she proceeded to school. Fast forward to tonight. She brings the box home and needs to print her cover that she has completed at school on Publisher. You guessed it!! Our home computer doesn't have Publisher so I attempt to connect Michael's laptop to our printer. This involves a 45 minute ordeal. In that time I found out my printer spool, whatever the hell that is wasn't working. I then tried to install Publisher on the home computer. This involved me making a decision that keep flashing BACKUP YOUR FILES YOU COULD LOSE EVERYTHING. I thought in my mental state it was not a good idea to make those types of decisions so back to the laptop I headed. This time around it allowed me to install the printer. Apparently, turning the computer off fixes the nasty printer spool thing. Now being exhausted but giddy I hit print. Nothing. I hit print again. Nothing. I turned off the printer and hit print again. Nothing. It only took me about twenty minutes to realize that Michael's printer default was set to the school printer. With the click of one button the paper appeared from the printer and problem solved. Are there people out there that just hit print and things happen? That never happens to me. My printer has a black cloud hanging over it. Do you see what I mean by everything being so hard? I have one nerve left and have just about licked my emergency Xanax so many time I need my reading glasses to see it. Please don't even get me started about reading glasses and how they are never on the same floor of your house as the fine print you are trying to read...UGH!!!!!!! Ya'll pray for me.
P.S. How in this day and age could Xanax not be in spell check. JEEZZZZ
