What are the odds? I swear I’m not making it up. I’ve admitted right here on my blog that I knew my driver’s license was expired and that I planned to get it renewed before I fly again on Thursday. So Sunday night I found where the nearest DPS office is, looked at their hours, and even printed out the forms I need to fill out. But then Monday got away from me and I didn’t manage to get there before the end of the day. No problem. I’ll go first thing Tuesday instead.
Except that was one day too late! Officer Wilson pulled me over two blocks from Nomadic Notions tonight while I was on my way to teach a class. Noooooo!!! And of course, there was no mercy. Sniff. I got a ticket. Actually, two tickets – the reason he pulled me over was for an expired registration sticker which he spotted when he was next to me at a stop light. SIGH. But I’ve got 30 days to get both violations taken care of and then they’re supposed to dismiss them. I know I’m a deadline driven (ahem, fancy words for procrastinator) woman, but this is kinda ridiculous.
After class I got to chat with Gwen & Lydia at the restaurant next door for a little while – the girls will be in Phoenix with me this weekend. Or more correctly, I’m with them – they’re allowing me to crash their hotel room! There’s a bead pajama party at the show on Saturday night – I’m so there!
