Well, my drivers license expired on my birthday, which fell on a Sunday, and I still have yet to go get it renewed. I am stalling… I got all ready on Monday to do it, but talked myself out of it. I am dreading going into that stinking office with my 18 month old son, waiting in line for FOREVER, just to get a terrible photo ID. I do, of course, get to have my name corrected after 3 years…when I got remarried the genius who made the name change made a typo and I have been Jessica Alecander for 3 years now. It will be nice to not have to explain that to everyone that needs to see ID. I am justifying the stalling by the fact that I have not needed to go to town…this will not be the fact on Friday since I have to pick up the kids. I’m sure I will have something to post about that endeavor.
On a different topic, Grayson has been running a fever for almost 3 days now. Nothing high, but a fever on and off nonetheless. I haven’t been able to get much done around the house because he has decided to only nap for about 30 minutes at a time, and the rest of the time just wants to snuggle. I love when he is snuggly…just makes me less productive. I am pretty sure it is because he is cutting more teeth. Hopefully the fever will be over with soon and he will be back to his old self. =)
Okay, went to the DMV… First of all, I think a prerequisite of working there is rudeness & lack of personality. Who doesn’t take credit/debit cards?! Uh…the DMV. After waiting for my turn…while answering Kara’s never ending spew of questions about driving rules and entertaining Grayson, I approach the desk stating that I need to get my drivers license renewed. The “lady” says, “$20.00 & your old license”, I hand her my license & debit card, she huffily responds “Cash or check only”. I let her know I don’t have it, I will be back. I then load the kids back up, drive across town to the ATM, drive back across town to the DMV, and take another number. This time I don’t have to wait, and am being helped by someone not rude…still no personality though. I give her the $20, my license, the name & address change, then on to the picture. Now, why on earth they feel they need to zoom in to where my face takes up the entire photo spot, I don’t know. She says, “Smile or not on 3 whichever you prefer. 123click” No time to prepare at all…totally the worst picture I’ve ever taken for a license. Ugh…another 4 years of ugly. LOL
