Thankfully I'd dropped Micah off with my mom and only had Lynae along for the ride (and she slept through it in her carseat!).
First I went by the house to grab my book and a hairbrush. Essentials for a new license, don't you think? Then I drove away and realized I had read something about needing a marriage cert, so I went back again. Grabbed that. Already had my passport, SS card, old license, a proof of residency, my application and my appointment card.
I got there 10 min before my appointment and was told... I need TWO proofs of residency. ANYTHING... bills, bank statements, anything. Just needs to have my address.
No problem, drove home, grabbed our electric bill. It's in Mike's name, but I have the handy marriage license and off we go.
No go. Must be in *my* name.
I don't have much in my name!
AGAIN I went home. This is now trip #4. It's 30 minutes PAST my appointment time now and if I go back I just knew they were going to make me wait in the line that when I arrived the first time was non-existent. I found a bank statement. *whew*
So I did what any patient sweet loving person would do...
I checked in online and made an appointment for 25 minutes from then! :)
Back to the license bureau and to the front of the line of 20+ people (a great feeling tho I felt bad for them) and at the end of the day I have a new license and a new photo (not too bad either!) and it's done for another 8 years.
I also changed my house water bill over to my name. MY name. So now there's something in my name! LOL But it had been under my dad's because I never got down to the city hall with our trustee deed in order to change it over in the last...
And after all that I picked up 3 kids from school and went to Wal-Mart for a few things. Fun times. It was a 15+ trip (how many times I was asked if they're ALL mine) and was more exhausting because of the other people in the store than it was because of my children!
You would think there was a hurricane headed for us by the amount of people there were in Wal-mart today too!
Home, dinner, baths, medicine, teeth brushed, and to bed. A quick evening but a productive day once again.
I will have to write about Kristopher's birthday present for me another time... for now I'm sleepy :)
