Today I was able to get two MAJOR, long overdue things accomplished. I renewed my driver's license at our local DPS office. I was amazed at how far technologically they have come. Driving tests are now computerized! At one time there were the traditional desks there and in their place, are computer screens. I found it amusing though..... they are only set up to take cash or check, no debit cards. Are you kidding me? How many people, still carry their checkbooks? I use my debit card, always. I leave the checkbook at home. I rarely use it. Oh, and to top it off, they said it would take 2-6 weeks for my new license to come in. Can't they speed that process up. As long as I have been driving it has been the same turn around time. My bloggy friend Anita said that Florida gives you your new one on the spot. Come on Texas!
Then after school, I ran over the the county offices to renew my vehicle registration. My tags have been expired since SEPTEMBER! The clerk couldn't believe I hadn't gotten a ticket.
So needless to say, I don't have to cringe, every time I see a police car anywhere near me. I was driving with an expired license AND tags. How do you explain that one. It feels great to feel legal again.
Now I just have eight more big things on my list to do before I leave for Chicago!
Carter is 8!
