I just came back from renewing our car's registration. A perk from living in a smallish town - - I renewed the tabs online and then went across the street to the courthouse to pick them up, where I had to stand in line for only about 3 minutes.
This last election our state voted for same sex marriage and legalized marijuana. Let this be known - - I am NOT anti-gay in the least. But I AM against changing the definition of marriage. And I AM anti-legal marijuana. So I felt like I kind of went 0-2 on those two issues. But this is not a political statement. It is more of a declaration that, inspite of what I personally think are a few negatives, I love it here and feel it a blessing to call this my home.
My car registration renewal cost me $43. In California, I remember paying hundreds of dollars every year to renew the tabs on my car. When I renewed my driver's license in June there was no one at the DMV (DOL), so I was only there for about five minutes. That never happened in California :)
I DID almost get run over in the crosswalk, though. An old lady. I think she put her foot on the gas pedal instead of the brake. I didn't know I could move that fast! She missed me by six inches!
So, I am kind of babbling. Nyquil hangover. I'm sure I'll make more sense and be more entertaining tomorrow.
