Does the title say it all?! The dreaded task would have been completed on Saturday if I had gone with Troy. You have already guessed what happened - they needed MY "John Hancock!"
When I arrived at the DMV this morning, Seth said, "Here - again?! Do you have your name signed where it should be?" Wow! It is amazing what kids can "pick up on."
When I got to the counter, I soon realized I had the clerk vying for the "Grumpy County Employee" Award. (Great!) I explained about wanting to include my name on the title, and she asked something about were the taxes paid in only Troy's name? My response was,"Yes." She then informed me that I could not complete this transaction. Excuse me?! Now, all of you have to understand that I go WAY out of my way to be nice to everyone, especially grumpy people. Well, that was not going to happen today, and I was not going to return to my car without the dreaded task accomplished. I replaced the look of disbelief with a strong gaze and kindly-but firmly-let her know I had done everything I was told to do. She then leaned over to another lady who let her know that what I had done was the right procedure. Whew! Sigh. Surprise! She was not pleased that I do not have a home phone#. Oh, well. . .It is over, done, finished, completed, and when the boys and I hopped in the van, we did a few cheers! Seth snapped a picture of me clutching the new plate, tags, and all the other important info I have been dragging around for weeks.
As a treat, we stopped at Wendy's and raided the "Dollar Menu." (Love those silly faces!)
Next, we did our weekly library visit. I included a snapshot of the beautiful view I enjoy from the library window. Isn't it gorgeous?! It is so therapeutic and will help you forget all about grumpy County employees! :-)

Good for you! By now, I'd have given up and strapped the boys to the handlebars of a bike.

I was right there with you! I decided I deserved 1/2 bag of powdered donuts and while making brownies, I ate gobs of batter. (I am not worried about spinach making me ill; I will get it from all the batter I consume!)

Martha - I can totally relate to the ridiculous ways of the BMV. When we moved to Ohio I made 3 trips alone (with more papers each time) and then took Aaron with me before we finally got our plates. Talk about frustrating! Anyway, I've enjoyed reading about your experiences - guess it makes for good blogging material. :-)
