I Need A Tardy Slip

When bloggy friend SonyaAnn at A Mom, Money and More, asked me to write something, I thought to myself that it hadn't been that long since my last post. Yeah, right...I was wrong. I had no idea it had been ten days!

I'm not sure you could handle me telling you all the fun and exciting things I've done in the last week and a half, so I'll just give you today's highlights:

  • I realized that not only do I need to renew the tags on our van this month, I also need to renew my driver's license. So, after getting the van inspected and gathering all the necessary insurance cards, tax receipts, birth certificates, and proof of residency, I walked into the DMV, then I walked right back out. I didn't have the patience for waiting that long for two hunks of tin and plastic photograph.

  • Which was a shame, because my hair looked pretty good today.

  • Speaking of which, as of early this morning, my hair is now all one length. I've never had it all one length before. I'm mildly thrilled.

  • I tried my first Caribou Coffee, a Caramel Hi-Rise-Something-Or-Other. It was pretty darn good for an overpriced cup of coffee.

  • Who do you know besides me who can cut herself on a pair of sunglasses? I have these little rimless clip-on shades for my prescription glasses and I had them in my coat pocket while I was inside the Caribou place. I slipped my hand into my pocket and sliced the back of my index finger open across the middle knuckle. It would NOT. STOP. BLEEDING. I finally had to beg a Band-aid from the Caribou guy. Maybe these freak accidents happen a lot there, because I had the bandage on my finger quicker than I had the coffee cup in my hand.
I guess that's my grand finale; I'd have to lie, or at least embellish, to top that stunt. Now go on over and visit SonyaAnn if you haven't already. She tells better stories than I do.

Good Morning! Great post! You have more interesting tales to tell than I would!

Caribou Coffee sounds awesome, btw, without the bleeding cut finger! :)

Find a DMV that is open late and go in the evening. I had to renew my license last month and went after work. I was in and out in 10 minutes!

Sorry about your cut finger.

A.Marie: The Caribou really was good, but I just hate paying so much for a cup of coffee. But I was out and wanted to give it a try, so I treated myself. :)

Frances: My finger bled again a couple of times, so Shane helped me put some of that liquid bandage stuff on it. I was holding one of the cats afterward and got cat hair stuck to it. So now I have a hairy knuckle, but it's not bleeding. And I thought I couldn't top my own story. LOL!

Thank you for the link! Funny coffee story! I understand having a freak accident from just reaching in your pocket. Wait that could be naughty?

SonyaAnn said...

Your doing it again!!! It's Tuesday and I miss your posts. Are you sick of me yet????

SonyaAnn: Shane's off work today because of snow at the jobsite. I can't post...I have to pretend I actually do something around here besides play on the computer. ;)

I'm sorry you got cut! And my girls LOVE Caribou coffee! Whenever we get up to the Mall of America, that's all they want to do... Get superdy duper coffee and go on the rides. That's what I need... hyped up girls on water roller coasters...
