It’s been a busy week since returning from Florida. The “administrivia” of life doesn’t stop because you go on vacation for 6 weeks.
For the first 3 days of the week, I ran around town, made a lot of stops, and completed numerous errands that had been waiting. I’m glad that I could do them all on a weekday when other folks are working …
⁃ Eye Appointment
⁃ Dentist Appointment
⁃ Pick Up New Prescriptions
⁃ Sort Mail; Pay & Mail Bills
⁃ Set Vaccine Appointment
⁃ Get Hair Cut
⁃ Sort Tax Paperwork
– Start 2021 Thirty Day Decluttering Challenge
⁃ DMV – New Driver’s License*
⁃ Bank – New ATM Cards*
The last two items were necessary because I lost my wallet on the way home from Florida. I’ve also had to cancel all my cards and apply for replacements.
Thankfully, unlike most Americans, I keep very little cash in my wallet. I probably had less than $5 in it.

It’s no surprise that out of all of these, the stop at the DMV was by far the longest, My driver’s license was expiring soon, so I took the opportunity to get upgraded to a ‘REAL ID’ compliant license.
Still, I got my teeth cleaned and had x-rays taken at the dentist faster than it took to fill out a form and get my picture taken at the DMV. I especially had to laugh at the sign in the DMV parking lot (above). Has anyone ever spent less than 20 minutes waiting here? My wait was over 2 hours!
Have A Great Weekend!
