Today was the day I’ve been dreading. Moving from one state to another requires a new driver’s license. I haven’t taken the test since I was 15. That was more years ago than I’m willing to admit to. So, I found the driver’s manual online, and I read the whole thing. Yes, THE WHOLE THING! That was mind numbing.
I got up this morning and knew there was no way I could pass that test. Too many nit picky little rules. Well, I’d just go in and do my best. I got there and it was crowded. Naturally. When my number was called, I approached the window with dread in my heart. I tried to joke about how I’d probably fail the test. She looked up at me and said, “Oh, you don’t have to take a test with your driving record.”
Way to elevate my mood. 🙂
I’m a little bit amazed at all the things I need to memorize now that I’m in a new home. It’s not just the address. I keep taking wrong turns in this neighborhood, and getting lost. There are a lot of really cute houses I’ve gotten to see, though. I’ve been working on unpacking the kitchen. I have more drawers then I did, which is good, but where did I put the spatula? And which closet has the paper towels? And what happened to that clock that Dad gave me? I’ll get it all, given enough time. Maybe by 2032.
Yesterday was moving day. I am sooooooo glad that is over. It was horrible. I’ll just leave it at that.
The internet guy just left, so I’m back online. Yea!!
Now I need to go get some FOOD!! My cupboards are bare, and I’m HUNGRY!!
I’ll get back online tonight and look at comments and likes and other blogs and all that stuff. See you then!
I have nine days to get ready to move. I have to work five of those days. I need a calming passage to recite to myself. Anybody have any to share?
Seriously. Is there a way to organize stuff when packing to move?
