Our first day back...

HP Photosmart e-All-in-One - Print/Copy/Scan WirelesslyI was not as prepared as I would have liked to have been.  I utilize my email a ton!!   As the kids copied the power point notes for Algebra 2 I noticed it was taking a lot longer than it needed to be.  Maybe I was expecting them to do much more and faster.  So I just ended up printing the power points and gave them each a copy to write in their notebooks.  I think that rewriting is a great way to copy things into your brain and it stick.  My printer is definitely getting a workout these days!  I bought this printer on (no I don't get a kickback if you buy it there...I work there but no commissions)  But if you don't already have a good printer and one that is up to date.  I recommend getting a printer that has e-print capabilities.  Many a nights I have found coupons sent to my printer from my best friend as a hint on where we will eat lunch next.  Its pretty comical actually.  But this is the printer that I have right now.   And of course they have flexpays where it doesn't hit your pocketbook all at once.  But I am grateful to a sizeable discount too.  In today's UPS package was all the rage here in the house.  We finally bought a paper shredder from hsn as well.  I am hoping it will work far I am not too impressed with it over heating after about 20 pages.  But then again I am giving it a good work out as the kids have been cleaning out their binders from last year.
