On Monday I renewed the tags for our vehicles for another year - pay the taxes, get the sticker - you know the drill.
But on Monday, it was pouring down rain, ALL DAY LONG.
So I simply stuck the renewal stickers in my purse and forgot about them.
Yesterday, out of the clear blue (and under a clear blue sky, I might add) I remembered them. It had only been two days, but they had been a very full two days, which had included a dreadful cold, two sleepless nights, and a diagnosis of an ear infection in the redhead. (who, thankfully, finally, slept all night long last night).
Back to the original story....
I was slightly afraid that the stickers were lost, which would be a $300 mistake... luckily, I found them, safe and sound exactly where I had left them. Still in my purse. Surprise, surprise!
Next: apply them to the vehicles. Now, I like tools. Especially when they come in little "sets", neatly stored in containers with everything nicely organized and labeled. I am fairly sure I have admitted before that I am slightly OCD. This tool set fits me to a T.
I felt empowered yesterday afternoon. It really is quite easy to unscrew a license plate cover, put a renewal sticker on, and screw it back on - but normally, that would be an "Andy job". Andy is not available, so I did that easy job by myself. And it felt good.
(in case you can't tell, the cover says, "POW's, you are not forgotten")
I "fixed" my car, and the truck. The boys got out their "vehicles and toolboxes" too, and played in the driveway for a while. It even got hot enough for them to feel the need to take off their shirts. They make me laugh. My little hillbillies...
Ya'll come back now, ya here!
