Saturday Style

There’s something so nice about waking up on the first day of the workweek feeling accomplished. Yesterday was like a marathon “chore” day for me. After church, we got our groceries for the week. Then it was time to clean our house, meal prep, finish a DIY project I was working on, wash our bedding and do two other loads of laundry, AND make homemade pizza. I was tired by about 8pm, but that made it easier to wake up early this morning. Some Sundays I can kick back and relax all day, others I like to get a lot of things done. I never regret getting a step ahead on the week, that’s for sure! 
Remember on Friday when I wrote that we were going to the DMV to get our VA driver’s licenses. Well, we went and sat for over 2 hours and then I was told that I didn’t have one essential piece of paperwork so JOKE’S ON ME, I GUESS.  When the employee behind that counter uttered those hideous words, I didn’t know whether to cry, scream, yell, or laugh. I was so enraged (mostly at myself because I should know to bring every legal document I’ve ever been given, plus 14 forms of identification and my cat’s health records) that I simply took my paperwork back from her and walked out. Mike was able to get his license switched over so all was not lost. It took me about an hour to recover, if I’m being honest. But then Mike and I went and got tacos and saw a movie, which can turn any bad day around.  
So, I find myself going back to the Virginia DMV this morning. For hopefully the last time, for a long time. And every other thing that needs to be done to get my name legally changed will be done through the mail. (P.S. I changed my name with the Social Security Administration via mail and I HIGHLY recommend. So easy and no need to sit at the SSA office for 5 hours).

    I HIGHLY recommend using a service like HitchSwitch for name changes! You fill out one simple form online and they fill in, print out and send you all the forms you will need PLUS instructions on what other documents to bring. It saved me SO much time & effort!

    • Yes, I've been seeing so many ads for that! I didn't want to pay, but can totally see how it would be beneficial!

    Hello everyone in this forum, I am Jane Robin from palm Harbor Florida 34682. USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to UP START LOAN for fulfilling their promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never with success, and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Mary Williams to UP START LOAN whom also confirmed to me that she also obtained a loan from them. In an attempt to resolve my current situation, i got in contact with the company via email and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Mary, i was also granted a loan of $80,000.00; So my advise to everyone who or know someone who desires a loan, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact UP START LOAN. Besides, he doesn’t know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on ( ) or Text/Call +1(574) 301-1639

    When Mac was deployed the first time, the genius minds at the VA DMV changed his address to Afghanistan. That was a fun discovery when we went to get his ID renewed.
