a present for me

This is my brand new, wireless laser color printer bought for me by my husband. Awww, how sweet you say! Just wait. :)

My original printer hasn't worked in 3 months and I had borrowed an old printer from school to use at home until I was able to afford a new printer. Well, thanks to my husband, I got my new printer sooner than expected...paid for by him! Here's what happened...this weekend my husband was showing my son the proper swing for baseball...inside the house...with an object that was not a baseball bat (my borrowed printer was sitting on the floor in my living room near the fireplace)...the thing he was using (don't even know the name of it; he uses it in his chiropractic office for massaging sore muscles) flew out of his hands and broke into pieces MID-AIR, scattering off in all directions with a loud crash! My kids and I were absolutely SILENT looking at him and what he just did. After a minute, he smiles and says, "Did you see that?!" (Ummm, yeah we did.) He laughed as he picked up the pieces and then noticed something that was a different color from all the rest...broken pieces of the printer. The smile was quickly gone. My daughter was quick to break the ice with "Well, I guess mom just got her new printer!" and he responds quietly with, "yes, I guess she does." So, THANKS husband for my awesome new printer that I'm absolutely going to LOVE!!!

While I was out, I stopped at Office Depot because I'm a sucker for office supplies of any kind. I picked up a few things that I absolutely needed *wink*...who doesn't need purple rubber bands?!? The star notepad made me think of one of my struggling readers, who is starting to take off in reading. I thought he'd like to get a note from me on one of these. The Sharpie chart markers came highly recommended from another teacher in blog world...HAVE to try them out and see if I agree that they are the most wonderful markers ever! Post-its in pretty colors are a necessity...even though I have a huge drawer full of Post-its, I still needed these particular ones. Then there's the wall mounted Post-it dispenser...DUH!! It was only $2.00. And lastly, the binder clips...take a closer look below.

These will be soooo helpful when organizing my endless paper piles.

Are there any office supplies that you hoard or can't live without??? Please feel free to share them with me...for research purposes of course! Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!


  1. Nothing ever good comes from "playing" baseball in the house - except for brand new printers, that is. :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love yours. Only teachers get excited about office supplies. Flair pens are my new favorite.

  4. Uh-oh! See, this is what happens when you play ball inside the house – someone gets a new printer. Hahaha! Seriously, though, it was great of your husband to rectify the situation right away. And what a rectification too! Laserjet printers are awesome, and quite sought-after by photographers, publishers, and offices. These babies were made to handle heavy-duty printing, and in stunning colors as well.
