Always Happens in Threes

It's all fun and games in the morning until you wake up to a freezing cold house and a non-functioning heater. When you pick up your cell phone (after dropping off the hormonal 'tween) to call the landlord about said heater just before you cross the school zone line, life becomes even more interesting.


Why?

Because you get pulled over by someone named Corporal Painter, who is apparently a member of the local SWAT team and wears a cool stocking cap to keep warm in the winter. You see, it is now illegal to use your cell in a school zone.

Which I already knew!

But I was frustrated and trying to jam one more thing in my scheduled because Dave's at work today. Of course he is.

Luckily, Corporal Painter had pity on me and didn't give me a ticket. He did, however, explain very patiently that you only have 30 days to get your address on your driver's license changed after you move. That would be significantly less time than the TWO YEARS we've lived in Woodway.

Of course the computers were really slow this morning so it took forever to get the "all clear" on my license. He, at one point, just told me to go ahead and go to work because "if you're wanted, I'll just hunt you down."

Awesome.

Right after he said that, I was cleared.

Whew!

And while I thought all the fun had been had for the morning, I was wrong.

Someone hacked into my iTunes account. Can I just tell you what a fun experience it is to try to clear that up?

Trust me, you don't want me to.

And now I'm off to find some Calgon.
