2015:_Day 59: Freezing rain, shopping and the DMV

It’s hard to think about Spring and gardening when you look out your window and see freezing rain and a coating of ice on everything. So I didn’t.

Today, I spent the day shopping with daughter. We didn’t buy a lot – it was more (for me anyway) just to spend time together. As I’ve said before, we don’t spend a lot of time together because she’s a teenager, and, well, spending time with your mother isn’t always high on a teen’s list of priorities. I understand that, so I figure I better take advantage of the time she does want to spend with me.

From the outlet mall to Ikea to soup-in-a-bread-bowl dinner at a local deli, I dare say we both enjoyed each other’s company,

DMV update: I recently wrote of an awful experience daughter and husband had at a local Department of Motor Vehicles office. I’m happy to report that they found another location (about a half-hour away) that will accept the letter from daughter’s old school stating she passed driver’s ed classroom and behind-the-wheel training.

Hopefully, next week, she’ll be able to take her road test in attempting to get her Texas driver’s license. We are all thrilled. Both husband and daughter said they could not believe the difference in level of customer service from the first DMV office to this one. All smiles and actually happy to help their customers.

I think we’ll be visiting this DMV office again. We’ll gladly drive a few extra miles to get treated like human beings, thank you very much.
