I had an appointment at the DMV this morning to get a new driver's license, and it went very well. The line of people who don't get appointments stretches out the door, but I didn't have to wait but a couple of minutes. The photo they took for the license shows how I've aged, but as someone recently said, as long as I'm on top of the grass it's good!
With all the gripes I sometimes have about California, the DMV here is absolutely wonderful. From what I've heard other people say, it is the same statewide - Los Angeles, San Diego, etc. The employees there are always in a good mood, are as helpful and friendly as can be, and seem to really want you to be happy with your visit. Now if they could only touch up my photo I'd be ecstatic!
I used my recently-cleaned oven today and was shocked to find bits of white baking soda on the floor of the oven. I guess the heat made the residue come out of the nooks and crannies where they were hiding. I didn't see any on my baked fish, but since it was only baking soda and water I didn't worry much about it. Good thing I didn't use a chemical cleaner, which I've been considering since the soda wasn't the best cleaner - I think it will take at least another application or two and I'm not ready to do that right now. I really don't want to use the chemical cleaner and would prefer to have a few spatters left on the oven if necessary.
I need to go to bed soon as I have an ambitious list of jobs to do around the house tomorrow, plus a visit with my chiropractor in the afternoon. I notice that when I relax and start to work the daily crossword puzzle I often get drowsy, but if I can just hold on for a little while, the drowsiness goes away. It's so much better when I don't need to sleep the day away! That's about the only benefit I've noticed so far with the thyroid meds and B-12 shot. I will get my next shot in about 8 more days.

It seems like it has been quite a few years since I had my license renewed, so I looked at it and it doesn't expire until 2020. Guess I don't have to worry for a couple of more years.ReplyDelete
I forgot to ask how long my new license will be valid. They gave me a temp paper "license" to use until the plastic card arrives. I hope I don't have to go through this again - I don't know why I was so worried.Delete
I have not had a DMV picture that looks like me in at least thirty years:) One or two might even have suggested that I was not above ground:(ReplyDelete
I've never had much of a compoaint about any drivers license or passport photos until this one. I guess growing old ain't pretty!Delete
It is always good when one has a positive experience in particular at the DMV. Back when I lived in Houston it was just plain awful so when I would come to Del Rio I would renew it here. The lady at the local DMV said that during hunting season a lot of folks from the big city stop by and renew theirs for the same reason.ReplyDelete
Good luck with your chores and the chiro visit.
I just started to take B12 pills. Hope they give me a boost too. Glad you got your licence squared away.ReplyDelete
