We were home from our road trip just one day when the envelope printer in my office died. The repairman said, “You have a really old printer.”
A new one had to be ordered because he could not find a motherboard anywhere in the country.
He said, “You have a really old dryer” and proceeded to show me all the things that were wrong with it.
Repairs would have cost $300.
This is the first time in almost 52 years of marriage that I have a matching washer and dryer.
We weren’t home from our road trip more than three days, when I was ready to go back on the road – and the new printer, washer, and dryer were not the reason.
I am also learning new Pitney Bowes software for doing TFC’s bulk mailings. I had to use it by May 1.
The software tech spent most of a workday setting up my computer for this new process and teaching me how to use it.
I barely slept the next two days trying to follow my notes to get two mailings to the post office – which I accomplished.
I am glad…
- my weeks are usually a lot more relaxing than this past one.
- for good repairmen and computer technicians.
- we live in a country where it is quite easy to buy new equipment.
- for grace and strength from the Lord during tough and uncomfortable times.
By the way…
- I love my new washer and dryer.
- The new envelope printer is a lot quieter and faster than the old one.
- I am getting used to the new software, and prepared a large newsletter mailing today – without too many glitches.
…and guess what. Something is wrong with our fax machine – a repairman is coming. I hope he doesn’t tell me it is really old – which it is. 🙂
