I woke up with Dave again today. This time I grabbed my laptop while he was getting ready. Poly was at my feet and I figured I wouldn't disturb her unless I had to.
I finally got up and used my computer for a little bit.
I get there and there is no parking. I leave the lot and try to find something on the street. I couldn't find anything. I go back into the lot and finally see someone backing out. I got a spot so I can finally go in. I wait in line but the line for having an appointment. The line for not having an appointment had maybe 80 people in it and was wrapped around the building. I finally get to a teller and he can't find my appointment listed anywhere. He started to not believe me. Luckily I had the paper that the lady gave me when she made the appointment. The lady that was helping me at my last DMV appointment is who made the appointment and she printed it out for me. He saw that and even though it wasn't in the system, he gave me the ticket to wait. For those not from CA, you go to the DMV, wait in line and then get a ticket that has a letter and a number on it. Then you go sit down and wait for that to be called to tell you what counter to go to. Once it is called, you go to that counter and start doing what you went there to do. My little card said A021. They were mainly calling Fs but was hoping they'd just skip to mine since it's registration and not license. It was 10:05 when my number got called. My appointment time was 9:40. It actually wasn't nearly as bad as I thought.
I head over to window 4 and think it'll be quick since I only have to show my registration and have them pull up the smog test results. Well the lady has to redo the registration because Dave's middle initial is on it not his middle name. She fixes that and I notice a problem with the address. Then she fixes that and I ask if his middle initial has to be there. It did and she removed it by mistake when taking out his middle name. So she has to redo stuff reprint and it takes forever. The last appointment the lady only misspelled my name and fixed it then.
Finally I get the screw driver and go outside and remove my PA plate. While I'm out there people are still looking for somewhere to park in the full parking lot. Someone asks me if I'm leaving. I have to tell them no. Then I go back in with my PA plate and get my new CA plates. She wants to take the screw driver back. I said "Don't I have to put this plate on the car?" So then she thinks for awhile and says yea and I have to promise to return the sucky screw driver back to her after I do it.
I put both plates on and put both stickers on. I go in and return the screw driver. Finally I get to leave.
I decided since I blocked off so much area that I would do some things on my to-do list that involved the computer.
At 5pm I zipped on over to Trader Joe's to buy some more Pub Cheese. I should have gone earlier. They were a little busy with people going after work. Then I went to go make some collages for my blog and Poly decided to nap on my lap and use my arm as a pillow. It is hard to hold ctrl and click when 1 arm is not in use. Poly was so cute. My camera and phone were in the kitchen. Boy was I mad. I hate when I miss out on something I'd like to photograph.
I had to disrupt Poly to go meet Dave at Baja Fresh for dinner. There was a line but then everyone else got their orders to go. The place is always pretty empty. It's so good. I don't know why more people don't eat there. Rubio's is right across the street and it sucked the day we went. Rubio's was packed too.
After we ate, we set up the kitchen table. It is too big. (It was also damaged from the movers!) Dave wants to buy a little table and put this one in storage. I think we can swap the buffet and table but still it is too big so maybe some sort of cheap table is better. We'd keep the same chairs because he likes them but we'd put 2 in storage. I mean we'd put 2 in storage now if we kept the table.

I really need to figure out where my tripod is. I have no idea. I also need to start using my good camera and my remote. Setting a timer leads to blurry pictures.
