Those of you who are following the title saga
in which I am embattled,
may you find last night's conversation interesting. . .
Late Wednesday, I enter the office/homeschool room to find Troy working at the computer. I begrudgingly plop down the title where he needs to sign the van to me as a buyer and himself as the seller.
"Honey, will you sign the highlighted places so I can go to the DMV again in the morning?"
After a short pause, I speak up, "You know what? I cannot bear the thought of walking back in there just to be told you need to do something else! Is there a way you can take this to the DMV?"
Still staring at the screen, "I guess I can try."
I again pipe up, "Maybe all of us can go on Saturday, and then we will both be in attendance in case they start pulling out other needless papers."
Still staring at the screen, "You want to drag the kids to the DMV with us on Saturday?!"
After a slight pause. . .My head tilted, eyebrow raised, "Ummm, Honey, what do you think I did with the kids every other time I went to the DMV?"
Still staring at the screen, "Oh, yeah. I forgot."
Result of conversation - we are all
going to the DMV on Saturday, and I am taking loads of identification (maybe the entire "fire-proof" box), photo ID, checkbook (of course), and I think I will even take my grocery list. I am learning to be prepared for anything! For those of you who have asked for a Christmas list, please buy me a stamp of Troy's signature; it would make my life a lot easier! Oh, yes, I am also hoping they do not notice the very different odometer reading each time I sign a new paper!
