It's Official I'm a Texan

Today I got my Texas car tags & Texas drivers' license. Really overdue according to both states' laws.  Thank goodness I didn't get stopped by police for anything. That could have been a very expensive ticket or my 1st time in jail.

I spent about 3 hours waiting to get my license. The car tags were quick (no lines). So I had a lot of time to think. This is what I realized. The Dept of Motor Vehicles is an identity thief's prime place to score. I tend to carry a lot of stuff in my purse, but never my social security card, Passport, lease, car title all at the same time.....I mean just about every important piece of information  I have.  So needless to say...I came straight home to put all that info back in a safe place. I didn't stop to shop.

Besides thinking about my paperwork being stolen. I would have really died of boredom without Twitter/Facebook/texting.

And to top off my waiting until the last minute for things. I have to use my medical spending account money, so I have an eye appt tomorrow & will get new glasses. If only I knew where my glasses prescription was, I would be able to just go buy the glasses.

So starting next year, I'll stop procrastinating. LOL!

Not really looking forward to getting a new license and tags next year. Wherever I move won't have an enhanced driver's license so that will suck, then I have to find a new name for my vanity plates.

My mom did the same exact thing with her medical spending account. She also got a bunch of contacts too. LOL.

Oh, vanity plates are expensive here. I forgot to look into the enhanced driver's license. I thought Texas was one of the states that has it.

I haven't had the contact lens exam recently. I used to stock up on contacts with my leftover spending acct money.
