A Post That Will Make You Feel Good About Yourself

Ode To September.

Oh September, you always punch me right in the face, and often times, provide a nice swift kick to the arse.

As we wrap up this God Forsaken month, I thought I would share with you that yes, she did rear her ugly head and decided to plop all of her spite on me this week.

1. Do I need to the state the obvious? The issues with the egyptian are at an all time "hello.. wtf?"

2. Diet is at a plateau. Holding 18 pounds down... strong and steady. The needle is just not moving.

3. A few thorns in my side. But I have plucked them out.

4. Finances. Always a worry.

5. This morning, I went to get my Drivers Licence. I need my GA D.L. for so many reasons, one is because in order to do anything (or make sweeping changes in certain departments) I need it to establish residency. Also my tag is about to expire in one week. I need a GA tag. You need a Georgia Licence to get a Georgia tag. Never fun pulling together all of your items.

6. Stayed up last night gather items:
 - Current D.L.
 - SS Card
 - Passport
 - Birth Certificate ( Original)
 - Marriage Licence
 - Water Bill (In my name)
 - Electric Bill (In my name)

7. Got to the place, and realized I had a COPY of my Marriage Licence. They would not accept it.

8. Called the egyptian (whom I am barely speaking with) and asked where the original is.
" Nicole, it's in D.C. somewhere."
"D.C.??? WTH is it doing in D.C.?"
"It's with my citizenship application."

%^$#&

9. It typically takes..... oh... forever to get those things approved. Which means, my original is floating in THE system.

10. Which means I have to track down someone at the Jefferson County Courthouse in Birmingham and request another. (Do they even do that?)

11. Which also means - No Tag. My tag is about to expire. It's going to take time.

Let's just say I screamed a few obscenities to no one in particular in my car this morning.

12. THEN.. it's my only day off, and I HAVE to go in to create a sponsorship letter for some company that needs it today. I found this out... today.

13. A have some random certified letter waiting for me at the Post Office. I don't owe anyone... but it concerns me. ;-)

14. The Department of Industrial Relations DOES want me to pay $1400 back to them (from unemployment.) They believe they over paid me. How is this my problem??

15. I saw one of those HUGE bugs crawling on my wall last night. If you live in the south, you know what I am talking about. Since the egyptian is not speaking to me, I had to pull out my Wonder Woman powers and tackle this beast. I'm TERRIFIED and disgusted by bugs. I grabbed my expensive argon oil hairspray and tried to scorch it. No workey. Then I hit the wall a few times with my Nine West leather sling back stiletto.. Workey. I then crushed it... followed by running around in circles screeching "Ewww.. Ewww.. Ewwww." I flushed it, only to discover it's a floater. I woke up this morning and forgot about it and almost had a heart attack. It finally went down the toilet.

16. Stick a fork in me.. I'm done.

.... How many more days in September?

I think it is odd you need your marriage license to get a Georgia D.L. I have never needed my marriage license for anything, but then I've only lived in Wisconsin. I have to agree you are having a bad month and I hope things get better. Your bug story did make me chuckle a bit.
