Waiting.....

Has anyone ever told you how much waiting stinks?? Well, today that is all we have done. We set out on to accomplish some stuff today, not knowing how much waiting would be required. In order to get Hunter in school, we had to have an immunization record up to date, which we had...but it had to be on a specific blue paper. Then when they finally called us in, wouldn't you know that Hunter had to have 2 shots to be up to date in Florida..... Well needless to say that did not go over very well for him. He screamed...kicked, and wanted out. We waited, no joke 2 1/2 hrs for this stupid blue paper! How ridiculous is this? They only do this on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday... you have to be there first thing in the morning, and they only take 15 people a day for this. OH MY GOODNESS! We just squeaked in today...we were number 13! Luckily they show a movie, so this kept the kids entertained for at least a little more than half of the time. On a good note they don't charge you to have their shots... :) Then from there we looked around to learn our way... and then we came home to get some papers we needed, and got some lunch. Then we figured we might as well get our license (and ID) changed to a Florida one... Since in some places you have to have this to obtain a job. So, off we went to the Department of Driver's Licenses. We got in line, stated what we needed, gave them the papers required, and sat to wait AGAIN! This time 1 1/2 hrs later, we were finally called to go to the room behind us, to answer the questions, do my eye test, take the picture (that never comes out right) and pay the these lovely people. Then go back and sit to wait another few minutes to print out the pretty picture! :) The only plus side to this time waiting, was I met this nice lady who lived here, and had a daughter the same age as Rachel, only she was born two days later than Rach. Pretty neat huh??? Although, in the telling the kids to quiet down, sit down, and behave, while having my name called.... I forgot to get her number so we could get together again sometime. BUMMER! So, all and all today 4 hrs of my day was wasted. At least it was air conditioned right???

Brave, so very brave...I absolutely hate waiting for stuff like this. The immunization thing sounds nuts! BTW, I like your new blog title.
