Blaine's new employer e-mails request for Blaine to sign paperwork and fax it back on Tuesday
Blaine prints and signs said paperwork and asks if I can find someone who will let me use their fax so we don't have to spend $5 faxing papers (again)
Kristi's facebook status : Can I use your fax machine?
The overwhelming response to Kristi's facebook status: Get out from under a rock. Who still uses fax machines? Just scan it.
Kristi has no scanner.
Jody says I can use her fax
Kids are sleeping
Kids are screaming
Email to Jody: can I use your fax tomorrow morning?
Email from new employer: Hello, send me your fax!
Email from Blaine: Hello sugar lump of love. Have I told you how skinny you look? Oh and also could you please send the fax...like NOW?
Kristi is busy at the sprinkler park, and going to lunch with Ralphie
Kristi receives email from Blaine + 2 other similarly worded emails from Blaine. He's starting to sweat it.
Kristi emails Blaine: Don't sweat it, I'll do it! Swear. After Ben's nap
Wow, Bentley is taking the worlds longest nap.
Call from Jody: Um, it has been 36 hours since you said you were coming and I actually do have a life and have to go somewhere. (note: she said this way nicer, like "if you still need the fax I can wait for you to come!")
I decided I may as well just wait for Blaine since he would be home soon and no sense lugging three children around, so I was going to miss Jody, but Jeannie said she had a scanner I could use, and I would be sending it to California, so I still had an hour and a half until business hours were over.
Go to Jeannie's
Can't get Jeannie's scanner to work. Looks like I will need to fork over the money to kinko's. Darn. But wait! Jeannie has a friend who has a fax (who coincidentally lives next door to Jody) and who is out of town but Jeannie has the keys!
Me, Jeannie + Jeannie's posterity, who are fevered and not feeling well, climb in the car.
We break into Jeannie's friends house
We break Jeannie's friends fax machine
We try to fix Jeannie's friends fax machine
We explore Jeannie's friends house looking for a scanner
We see strange man in Jeannie's friends backyard stealing her pool toys, except they were his pool toys, he is just a neighbor.
We marvel at how nice Jeannie's friend is to leave her home open for all to enjoy while she is out of town
I start panicking because I only have twenty minutes left and kinkos is far away. We run to the car.
Jeannie breaks her friends garage door
Jeannie fixes door
I call everyone I know to see if I can use their fax
Jeannie calls everyone she knows to see if we can use their fax
Screech into Tammy's driveway
Break down Tammy's front door and demand her husband fax the paper RIGHT NOW!
sigh of relief
Drop off Jeannie and Co
Run out of gas en route to gas station.
Just kidding, but it was scary and for future reference, when your car says that it has 0 miles left to empty, it's just kidding. It still has a tiny bit of gas in there, but I don't know how much.
Thanks Jeannie for the wild ride! The things I do to save $5!
