A Not So Bad Hair Day:
Thursday, January 17, 2013

Today thank goodness was not such a bad hair day… With my birthday coming up, it was time to renew my drivers license.  I tried to do it on line, but nope.  I had to go in.  It’s like they want you to sign over your life.  You have to bring in your birth certificate, social security card, 3 pieces of mail with your address on it (no longer than 60 days old), your marriage license because your name is different from your birth certificate, and if you’ve been married more than once, your first marriage certificate (because that has your maiden name on it), your divorce papers, and your current marriage license as it had your ex husbands last name on it.  Have I lost you yet??  Ha ha… Then just to be on the safe side I brought in Don’s death certificate.  I figured if I didn’t have that, it would be the one thing they wanted.  Lo and behold that’s the only thing they didn’t want.  All this because of 9/11.  Life was so different.  The good news is even though they moved I found them.  Yeah for me.  Ha ha… I won’t have to go through all that again for another 8 years.  Phewww…

The best news is that you know how your drivers license pictures are always horrible and look like bad mug shots, well, mine came out half decent.  I was shocked that I didn’t hate it.. It’s either shock or the fact that the older you get the more you care less about it.  Ha ha…

Now all that’s left of the birthday nonsense is getting my tag renewed.  And I will remember to put on the sticker.  I had never does this before Don died, so when I renewed my tags, I just stuck the paper in my glove compartment.  That’s weird that it’s called a “glove compartment”.  This is Florida….No one wears gloves… And then again even if it was cold, wouldn’t you be wearing your gloves and not keeping them in a compartment in your car?  Hmmmm.  Something to ponder… Oh yeah, so like I was saying, I put the paperwork in the glove compartment ( it still baffles me).  I had 3 years worth of papers with the stickers attached in there.  Didn’t realize I had to put the sticker on the license plate..  And no one ever stopped me for it.  Guess I was lucky. Will get that done in the next few days.

Well, that’s about it for now.  Glove compartment, who’d a thunk it…..

Until next time.
