It’s the Small Things

by Tammy on June 29, 2018

Today, I finally got Alabama tags for my car. Technically, new residents are supposed to get that taken care of within 30 days, but since I do not have vacation time yet, it took me awhile to get to the DMV to get my driver’s license and request our titles be sent to the Alabama DMV from our lien holders. My and Ben’s tags actually expire tomorrow, so I couldn’t put it off any longer. I was just praying that the titles had been sent. Thankfully, they were there, so everything went off without a hitch–except for me having to leave work a couple of hours early to get there with enough time to get it done before they closed. When I got there, they were on number 70-something, and I pulled number 24. That meant there were about 50 people in front of me. Somehow, we managed to get out of there within two hours, although I am still not sure how. I am just happy to finally have all of my administrative business taken care of, so now I can relax.

I have to make up an hour of work next week (I took my hour lunch today; otherwise I would have had two hours to make up), but if I stay 15 minutes late each night, which I usually do anyway since the parking lot is a zoo right at 5:00, I’ll get my time made up in the four days we work. I am very much looking forward to having the 4th of July off. I love my job, but I am looking forward to a bit of a break, especially since I’ve had school hanging over my head since before the move. I submitted my last assignments for one of my classes and have one last assignment due in my other class that I plan to work on this weekend, and then I can forget about school until July 16th.

After our trip to the DMV, we went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner that was only about a mile from the beach, so we decided to stop and take a quick walk down by the water. The beach was strangely deserted, which was ok with me. There was some rain just off to our east that was moving our way, so we didn’t stay long, but the rain never did make it to us.

Well, it is past my bedtime, so I am going to wrap this up for tonight. I’ll stop back this weekend and update on other things that have been going on–my job, our microwave (and A/C), and other things that I am sure will come up between now and tomorrow or Sunday. I hope you all enjoy your Saturday.

Hi Tammy, enjoy your weekend. I bet you will be glad when school is over. When you going to share some pictures of your new home? I plan to stay as healthy as I can and who knows, maybe we will come and visit! :)
