The DMV & New Glasses

I thought today would be a productive Saturday. After all we did wake up at 7:30... I really shouldn't know what 7:30am looks like on a Saturday...

We had to go to the DMV, Greg's work to band some skids and I wanted to get my prescription updated on my glasses....

But little did I know the stupidity that was to follow at the DMV (I know nothing new...) since we have purchased the house I figured what the heck I should update my address on my drivers license and state ID. We made sure we have two pieces of mail with our new address and of course our IDs... patiently waited in line I lucked out and went up first this is where everything began to do downhill....

The guy informed me I had a "D Restriction" on my license. After giving him the typic O.o look I asked what that was.... You won't even believe what it is... Apparently a "D Restriction" stands for a person with a prosthetic limb. Now don't get me wrong I have NOTHING against people with one however I DO NOT have one... After the guy told me I backed up from the counter looked down at my body and said "Last time I checked I walked in on my own legs & my arms are real..." this is when he got his supervisor... She informed me that the only way to rectify the situation was to retake my drivers test as this restriction had been on my license since 2005 (...yeah lady my limbs magically grew back since then... -_- ) I informed her how ridiculous this was and clearly it was a type on a clerks part as A) I have no clue till this moment I had the restriction and B) I CLEARLY didn't have a prosthetic body part. She called some random person and asked if "Springfield was open" then hung up and said "Yes, you have to retake you road test" ...Of course whoever was on the phone knew EXACTLY  what was going on by you asking if Springfield was open....

This is when I said this is absolutely ridiculous I don't have time today to retake my road test (let alone I couldn't because we were in Gregory's car) She then informed me that I could change my address and just leave the restriction on but if I were to get pulled over I could get my licenses suspended... Yes I totally lied that I have a fake limb to get the restriction..  At this point I threw my arms in the air and said forget it that is was absolutely absurd and I wasn't doing anything and we left...

After that waste of time (well not for Gregory, he was able to get his stuff correct no restrictions or issues...) we headed to his work and knocked all the skids out. In between banding I managed to schedule my appointment at The Crystal Bride to schedule my second wedding dress appointment where my family, Greg's family & bridal party will be there to see my dress and played phone tag with LensCrafters....

Apparently they couldn't find our insurance but I knew the took our insurance and after an hour of back and forth we we're able to get it situated and I was able to get my new glasses.

AH HA I CAN SEE AGAIN!


And in true Audrey fashion I gravitated to the Tiffany & Co. brand <3. Greg said the frames reminded him of the 50's so that made it all the more better!

I've been eyeing these frames since March and finally decided I was done squinting and not being able to see things at a distance... I couldn't be any happier.

This definitely made up for the stupidity that is the DMV.

I'm also super excited for my lazy Sunday! Me and Gregory decided to have a lazy relaxing day after our busy day. We're going to wake up when ever well... we wake up (LOL), have some bacon and cinnamon rolls (don't ask I think it sounds amazing!) and spend the day watching Ghost Whisper (Adore Jennifer Love Hewitt!) and playing Minecraft (Yes, I am a gaming nerd! Minecraft name: HollyGolightly87) If anyone reading plays let me know maybe I'll hop on your server and play for a bit!
