Its only April ..

*giggles* Yes I am going to say it .. "it was hot out" lol

It really wasnt that bad, but I did turn on the AC in my car for the 1st time since I bought it April 1, 2004. There have been warmer days, that it wasnt turned on for .. but as I was stuck in traffic yesterday, I realized that the black car is soooo going to reflect lots of heat when it does get really hot!!

I decided to go license my car yesterday. 1st I had to to get an emissions test, not a big deal but damn it cost 30.00 freaking bucks! On the way I was on the phone and realized I needed gas, and that I hadnt really looked up any directions. So I hung up and stopped at a gas station. As I am there I realize, hey I have about 2 hits of smoke stashed under the seat. Since I am not sure what emission testing entails, I thought I had better stash that stash somewhere else. I reached under the seat and ... OH SHIT?! Where is it??? I got out of the car, leaned and looked and could find nothing. I started frantically reaching under with my hand and .. fuck fuck fuck .. where was the baggie???? I started to panic a little. I thought .. maybe it had flown out the day before, or maybe the roomie had found the stash and took it away! ( I am on restriction after failing the drug test and not getting the new job! Im not smoking the secret stash, its just there for emergencies lol )

I KNEW I would get to the emissions place and they would look right down and find it, but I couldnt so I decide I must leave and just pray .... There were 4 lines at the emissions place, all of them long, so I picked lane 3. Had to sit in line about 15 minutes. As I was waiting I continually kept reaching down and hoping the baggie would magically appear .. and YES!!!! IT DID!!!! It had gotten stuck into the slider thingies the seat moves on :) YAY!!

When you finally get to the testing spot , they sit you in a lil booth whilst you wait for the testing to be done. It got a lil warm during all this waiting, but finally it was done and yes I PASSED!

It was a lil warm now ..

Then off to the DMV ... I had searched and searched and even tried to call before heading out, but could not find if they took credit/debit cards so I thought rather safe than sorry, I would stop at Wal-Mart, which I had to pass anyways, and use the ATM since I knew it was the one with the least expensive fees ( thats a whole nother bitch session for me about having to pay to get my own damn money out!)

I was feeling pretty lucky at this point, the emissions was smooth and easy, the baggie was found AND now I had front door parking at Wallys .... except as I got out of the car I remember that the day before someone wanted something out of my purse, and for the 1st time in years I did not have that item in my purse - I hadnt switched it when I changed purses 2 nights before. I always change my purses out and have a particular handful of stuff that ALWAYS gets changed with .. but no .. I had decided that I didnt need that stuff at the dinner party, and so it wasnt in the new purse. Unfortunately one of those always have things was my bank debit card.

SOOOOOO OK ... I was very close to home and had no choice, I was going to go home and get it, and start again. Simple .. right? Uh yeah no ... I turned on to the street to go home and AFTER you turn there is a sign that says "road work until 4-16-10 - expect back up and delays" - the 6 lane road was down to 1 lane each way .. and backed up!!! A less than 10 minute trip turned into almost 20, maybe close to 30!

It got a lil warmer out now

As I finally reached my street ... FUCK .. the big truck thingy that flattens out the blacktop they were laying was right in front of my turn!! and they wouldnt let me in!!! I had to go several blocks farther down to go even more blocks down to come into the house the back way ...

NOW it was getting a lot warmer out .. and the AC came on!

I got home, got my debit card .. and back out on the adventure we went ( remembering to leave the back way so I was to avoid the heavy construction traffic!)

I made it back to WallyWorld .. but no front door parking this time. I also decided once I was in there to pick up some PEPSI!! I had drank the last one the night before, so this was actually good I remembered!

Got the cash. Not knowing how much it would be, I pulled 150.00 out of the machine and then off to the DMV we went!

As expected the line was LONG just to get to the information table. Once there ( about 10 minutes) I was given a number ... J654 - and they were on J640 *GREAT* this would be awhile. I actually was out of there in about an hour and a half .. not as bad as I thought it was going to be really lol and I was damn happy surprised that for a 2 yr plate it was ONLY 47.00!!! That was less than what I paid for 1 yr in NE!!! ( same with the DL .. 20.00 and its good for 25 years!!)

During the trip back from home to the ATM I had stopped at McDonalds .. I was a little shocked that my 1.99 happy meal in omaha was 3.69 here in mesa .. damn all mighty! It's a good thing ive practically given up fast food since ive moved .. its a lil pricier!!

Anyways .. ive been telling people that I probably will bitch and complain and moan a lot this summer that its HOT out .. but I am happy I will never have to do all that about it being to cold or snowy out again!!!
