Well, at 7:30 am today I called the Florida Driver's License office. We had found out that it was an "appointment only" sort of place, and their office is only open from Tuesday - Friday, so this was the very first chance I had to try to make an appointment for tomorrow (Matt's day off). Unfortunately, it seems as difficult to get an appointment there as it is to book the Princess' Breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table (to use an arcane reference only understood by former Disney Dining castmembers - many of which read this journal). After about 40 or 50 calls (redial!) I got through and was told that Wednesday was booked up solid. Grrr. She did tell me that there had been a cancellation on Thursday the 24th and they had an appointment available at 8:45am (before Matt goes to work at 11:00), and that I should "grab it, since the next caller would most likely take that time slot" so I signed up. She told me that we needed to bring our Missouri Driver's Licenses and either our birth certificate, passport or social security card. I've got all of that here, but I have a sinking feeling that Matt does not (he's at his Disney Traditions Training now, otherwise I would ask him). In fact, I think it was only yesterday when he was talking about how his birth certificate was "probably stashed away somewhere" in his mom's house (in Grandview, Missouri). Uh-oh.
But, I'm the only one who actually needs to prove Florida residency right now (so I can get my Disney Resident's annual pass), since Matt is a Castmember and gets in free. He can just get his driver's license later =P
Matt & I had a great time yesterday! We found the SuperTarget (which is just down the street from the Costco - we're set now!) which was really nice. It was next to a place called "Atlanta Bread" which looks suspiciously like Panera Bread (even down to the wording of their menu items) - I look forward to going there frequently. We then took a nice long wonderful walk around town yesterday - I can't believe what a beautiful place Celebration is! We walked a lot in the residential areas, looking at some of the more modest homes (using the term "modest" loosely - they are still quite spacious - generally 1500 sq ft + and starting at around $180,000 for the most inexpensive). We are hoping maybe in three years or so to be ready to purchase one =) For now though, I'm very happy with my new apartment!
Anyways - I'm going to start painting! Tonight I will be putting up a few auctions - my "Butterfly Faeries" piece, my "Poison Fairy: Psilocybin" piece and maybe even "Snow White and Rose Red" if she is done by then, hehe.
