I slept well, and took care of some business today. I drove to campus and did some of the necessary paperwork for employment, taxes and payroll. Then I went to Best Buy and bought a printer. My intention all along was to buy a compact printer that is intended for business travelers. I thought that made sense. However, it was more expensive; and it occurred to me this morning that normally I don’t need a printer when I travel on business. I usually hand write my notes for actors. This trip is not normal as it involves teaching and being away for 6 months. I do need a printer here. So I thought I should buy a nice printer/scanner/copier and then ship it back home in July. We need a better printer at home and this will do the trick. Plus, it has wireless. Ironically, it is much less expensive than the compact printer I was considering and it does more. Add to that the fact that I had two coupons totaling $30.00 off and it was a no-brainer. It certainly is much quieter than our printer at home!
Tomorrow will be a day of rehearsals and note-taking. The show I am working on is getting close to moving into the theater. Next week, classes begin. So I am slowly getting busier and that is a good thing.
The photo above comes from Mockingbird Hill Cottage. I took it because I loved the contrast of pine floor and the tiger oak of the sideboard. If you look in the upper left hand corner you’ll see the aqua version of the McCoy bulb dish.
