Why I Am Getting a Late Start Blogging Today…

Today’s tour stop is at A Title Wave. I love that name! It looks like it will be a lot of fun to explore in the future.

Such a late start to the day…you ever have one of those days when nothing seems to go right? And with the chaos of Covid-19, it’s even worse!

I went to pay my sales taxes, which were already late due to the surgery in December, and then, by the time that I was feeling up to getting things done after that…we were on lockdown. So, I go to the office I have been going to for the last fifteen years to find a sign on the door that they were permanently closed at that location and their other office across town hadn’t opened yet due to an abundance of caution. At least I manage to get the online system to accept me again–I’d been locked out for years–and get them paid. (You better believe I wrote down every single field connected to it now!)

My next stop was to get the car registration updated, as I realized with horror yesterday that my 4-20 sticker was no longer cute, but passe. Since I don’t know where the official registration paperwork is, I went to the Comptroller’s office to get it taken care of. Well, I started to go there…and then I realized I would need a current inspection first, so I went to the dealer to get that done. As an electric car, it is both easier and cheaper to get it done at the dealer than any of the several stations I passed on the way across town…

That part went fine. They got me in and inspected very quickly. So, I went back to the Comptroller. Only to find their office was closed too. Luckily, they have someone standing outside to answer questions and she assured me I would be okay if I went home and filed for the sticker online. Apparently, there’s a non-enforcement order in place at the moment, so even a month out-of-date, I shouldn’t get a ticket before it gets here.

So, basically, most of what I did today I could have done online without leaving the house. But I did get barbeque for lunch. And it felt like the sort of day Jo would have…lol

My take-aways: Be better about deadlines, and keep track of important paperwork!
