Long Weekends and Longer Lines


As my birthday gift from the state, my license expired. Things have been a little busy, so I finally marked out an entire morning to go sit at the DMV. In Bossier, of course. The Shreveport DMV is the worst. However, the good news is I recently got my hair done, which upped my chances of having a decent photo until 2013.

I wasn't looking forward to it, but I started to get a really bad feeling about things when I pulled out of my driveway. I turned onto Fairfield, a man pulled out in front of me (I didn't honk or make any gestures or anything) and he still flipped me off. I repeat — HE flipped ME off. I did nothing wrong.

I took a few deep breaths and kept trucking. The DMV wasn't too horrible. A simple two hour visit, waiting on the red number to blink A027. I got out of there with a new license and a late fee charge. I thought you had a 30 day window to renew. It's actually 10 days, so hustle people.

After a morning at the DMV, I'm even more excited about the long Memorial Day weekend. Tonight (after a baby shower), we're going to dinner for Marcus' birthday, possible drinks to follow. We're considering Mudbug Madness. And we're definitely going out on the lake Sunday.

I haven't been on vacation since the Fourth of July. I haven't even had a day off work unless it was because I was sick. This long weekend is a God send, and I'm going to savor each moment.
