This morning, I spent four hours (yes, FOUR HOURS) stuck at the DMV as I attempted to get my North Carolina driverâ€™s license. Um, yes. Iâ€™m a little late to the party.
It wouldâ€™ve been the worst four hours of my week, but I was smart and brought along my laptop so I could do some book editing.
After FINALLY making it to the front of the line, I became very nervous that I would fail the test. In North Carolina, you have to take a written exam even if you have a valid license from another state. Happily, I beat the computer and made it out of the DMV without a minute to spare before Girls on the Run.
The Husband made me lunch, so I literally ran in, dropped by bags, inhaled this lunch, and we left for the elementary school.
Hummus and sprouts sammie:
Dipped in a potato, artichoke, and leek soup. Mmm.
Girls on the Run was fun, but I got the sense that a few of the girls felt a little crabby today â€“ I kind of did, too, so I can sympathize. We tried to boost everyoneâ€™s spirits by talking about the fun Practice 5K party weâ€™re having next week. I know some of the girls are positively going to CRUSH the 5K.
Also, everyoneâ€™s foot necklaces are getting bigger and bigger (they get a foot for every mile they run). Two of the girls have 21 feet already! Once they get to 26 feet, they get a special charm for â€˜running a marathon.â€™ Pretty cute, huh?
I wish I got a charm for every mile I ran. 😉
Post-GOTR snack was an apple and PB.
Back to work I go!
Did you fail the driverâ€™s exam the first time you took it? I failed my learnerâ€™s written test once and my driverâ€™s practical once, too. Shameful.
