An appointment is the only way to go

Today I went to the DMV, with both kids. I was prepared for whatever, especially since it began with 5 minutes of circling the parking lot along with 10 other cars, hunting down the next person ready to leave. I finally parked blocks away in some random parking lot.

As I walked in with my "small" double stroller there was a single-file line of over 100 people. That was the Non-Appointment line. I looked to the left for the Appointment line. That was my line, with only 1 other person waiting! I filled out my paperwork, only paid $22 for my replacement license, the lady helping me actually had a sense of humor, and I was out of there in 15 minutes. And since Owen had fallen asleep on the drive there and Lucy played with her farm animals, the kids made it easy too! Is it weird to say the DMV was almost a bright-spot in my day? Yea, that's weird. It's still an annoying place (and I swear, I never see another person there that looks like me. I don't mean that in the wrong way. I'm just saying, why are all these other people, that I can't really relate to, flooding the DMV every time I go there?)

i was also prepared for the worst, anytime jim has to go there he has to have a few days to "calm down" afterwards...such a crappy place. in case you watch reaper, i find it amusing that the hell soul inbox is at the dmv...funny.

Dude. I went to the DMV on Tuesday too and I was in and out in less than 5-minutes!!! I couldn't believe it! The DMV will never be a bright spot in any day of mine, but it definitely wasn't the usual sore spot whenever I DO go!
Woohoo! Have you seen that Family Guy episode where they go to the DMV? funny...
