“Thirty days has September…

April, June and November.”

Thirty days in Waco, Texas–but I couldn’t think of any rhyming words to emphasize the occasion. I only enjoyed half a night’s sleep because so many things “to do.”

One item haunts me: Register the car within thirty days. But here are the qualifications: (1) Inspection and get a certificate; (2) current registration; (3) proof of insurance; (4) cash or credit card. “They” won’t take a check that isn’t “local” with my name and address printed on the check.

I’ve only left my new home twice this month. If I drive around I’ll see an inspection station. But where is a Bank? I did a Google search for the Texas Dept. of Motor Vehicles and have their address. Google Maps says “fifteen-minutes” drive. That will be a nightmare experience (for me) because of the horrible traffic.

I need to register to vote before February 2nd. (Reregister because I’ve voted consistently in Livingston.) I went on the Internet, found the proper site, and filled in all the required information only to read (at the bottom of the page) that I need to print the form and mail to Elections Administration Office. I don’t have a printer and I seldom need a printer. That office is located “about a fifteen-minute drive.”

**If** the weather had been pleasant, I would have braved the traffic. It just didn’t make sense (to me) to drive in rain, or fog, in an unknown city, in un-Godly traffic.

This illustration comes to my mind: I’m running on a track and I have “hurdles” I need to jump every few feet. Can you picture it in your mind?

Thirty days in Waco….

    See where your nearest library is. They almost always have computers and printers you can use. A UPS Store or Office Depot can also print things for you. They each have an email address where you can email them something you want printed. I think 2 pages I emailed them cost me around 37 cents last time I went to Office Depot. They also have self service copiers at the office stores. Remember now that you are in a city to make your trips during non-rush hour. I also try to get out before school lets out, which adds to the traffic.

    • Deb, I just saw your comment on an earlier blog message. Maybe I don’t receive a notice (anymore) because Windows-7 isn’t supported?! I was scrolling through the social media section and saw two comments I wasn’t aware of.

      Yes, I have a lot more options now that I live near a city.

      Love and hugs from Lorraine
