Bureau of Motor Vehicles… Good Times!

Well, I had to get my new driver’s license before it expires on Sunday (my luck would be that I would end up having to retake the written & driving test ! -how horrible would that be?!)

Anyway- I always have a pleasant experience at the local BMV, always the same women working (at either of the two locations we go to) and they are always SO nice and helpful, I’ve never waited more than 20 minutes for anything, never dealt with staff getting irritable at people- It’s amazing compared to the images you always get of the BMV!

20 minutes and I had a new license (with new picture-not so exciting!), tags for both of my cars, vision test done, and a document notarized. I’d call that a WIN!  I think a lot of it how you see things, because I hardly ever have bad experiences lol

**absurd driving laws in Ohio**

-The Ohio driver’s education manual states that you must honk the horn whenever you pass another car. That could get old REALLY  fast! Sadly, I remember this from when I was in drivers ed and have done it before on a country road…

– [Fairview Park] It’s against the law to honk your horn “excessively”. Better watch how much passing you’re doing when you’re there!

– [Oxford] Horn honking is not permitted as it might scare horses.  Forget passing altogether better just drive in reverse- it isn’t passing then is it?

– [City of Canton] Power Wheels cars may not be driven down the street. umm, common sense?

SEE… I said I would keep up on posting! Even though I didn’t have time to really write about anything that interesting or worthwhile, I feel a lot better knowing that I got something on here 🙂 there may be more completely random posts in between the more put together ones.

By the way… I signed up to be a Foodie Penpal, and I’m really excited about it! Such a cool idea! Check it out here- http://www.theleangreenbean.com/foodie-penpals/  While you’re there take some reading time too, there are some great posts!


Time sure flies…

Is it just me? Or does it seem like time is going a lot faster lately?
I feel like I was home on maternity leave last week and Christmas was the other day… and now, now it’s the middle of June! I have definitely been slacking on the blog, I’m a little disappointed about that- especially considering pretty much everyday I have a great idea for a post and I tell myself  ‘It’s bedtime/naptime/cleaning time- it can wait till later’ and I never get back around to it! Ooops! I’m going to try a little harder to keep up with it this time.

A lot has happened in my home since I posted last…
(sorry no pictures either, my camera is not getting along with the computer! ugh!)

*My Little E is now walking with assistance, climbing onto things, getting sharp little teeth, etc. Not to mention he is a 9 month old wearing 12 month clothes and weighs 22lbs!

*My older son Big E is now a 2nd grader and is on summer vacation… It’s been good so far, we have a lot of work to do on swimming though since someone managed to forget 3 years worth of lessons! He is also playing soccer and doing absolutely amazing (if-I-do-say-so-myself!)

* We had to put Remy, my (favorite-shh) dog to sleep after a herniated disc caused him to become paralyzed, that was the hardest couple of days- I still almost call his name when I’m getting the other dogs inside :/

*Our healthy eating and living is going great! I wish I had pictures of how our fridge used to look to compare to how it looks now, almost everything is fresh, we have been losing weight still. Hubby/partner in crime, has lost a lot of weight since we started all this in Febraury. I am in pants that I haven’t been able to wear in FOREVER without a muffin top lol. The most important thing is that we FEEL better!

Well I think that pretty much sums up the past few months lol…  I plan to post again soon- by soon I mean in the next several days this time!
