On the Road Again...
Hallelujah! After two long months of being chauffered like an antsy 15 year old, I've finally dragged my butt down to the DMV, waited in all the lines, filled out all the forms, and got a replacement for my expired drivers license.
If you've been following this blog, you may remember the timely moment that I was informed my license had expired - while trying to get through security at the SFO airport.
After that memorable experience, I went to the DMV website, printed out an application, filled it out and mailed it in. When I called to check on it, I was told that it was being processed and should hear back soon. This week, my application was returned to me in the mail, with a short note indicating I would have to come in to the DMV office, pay a fee, and take any necessary tests. Argh. I could have had my license weeks ago if they hadn't teased me with that unacceptable form...
Anyways, I am happy to report that no tests, written or driving, were deemed necessary (huge sigh of relief here). In a few short weeks, I will be getting a new license complete with updated picture, address, and weight (ack). Until then, I'm not letting my temporary driving papers out of my sight!
So, consider yourself warned to stay off the sidewalk... I'm back on the road!
