The Dreaded DMV

Yesterday was errand day, and well after moving to a new place there is A LOT to do! My list consisted of:
* Giving boxes to someone
* Changing name on S.S. card (yeah I'm a little late on that one).
* Getting Florida insurance (a must to register a car here)
* Getting Drivers License
* Registering and transferring title

I went everywhere, but left the DMV empty handed. Phil went to register his car in FL and get a license too, and at least he got his license, though it took them a couple tries. Apparently, his "sex" is: "F" according to them, even though his birth certificate and previous DL said "M." Apparently my hubby got a sex change that even he was unaware of. Thankfully he noticed it before we left, but it took them at least an HOUR to correct the mistake. Another reminder why I hate the DMV so much.

Oh and I had to wait over an hour at Social Security for a quick 5 minute transaction, while I sat there and listened to all these people trying to talk their way into or out of something, saying the same thing 10 times, isn't going to get you any farther than saying it once!!

So, we're going back Monday or Tuesday, hopefully for the last time in a long time!


  1. ahahhha oh the pleasures of dealing with the DMV ;P and that's funny that they marked your husband as a female!

    i hope everything else goes well and that there isn't too much waiting involved at each place!

  2. I feel your pain. We moved two weeks ago and I still haven't forwarded the mail or anything! I should probably do that...
    Thanks for the cake comments! I taught myself, just bought a book and started! The funny thing is that I actually teach the Wilton classes but never took them myself!

  3. Ugh, the DMV. I'm living in a place where I can usually be in and out in 20 minutes, but I used to sit for hours before I moved. It was terrible.

    Anyway, I liked what you wrote on post secret (getting up more times than you fall.) So true!
