It's Official...

The McFamily spent the greater part of Friday afternoon at the DMV getting new licenses and registration thus making our move 100% official. While it was a gigantic pain in the rear we are glad to have it done. It was tough to take off those Red and White MA plates, both literally and figuratively. Steve appears confused as he has our new plate on the front and our old plate on the back. The back plate bolts refuse to budge and he is currently en route for WD40 which we cross our fingers will work. I doubt it is legal to drive the way it is now...

Back to the DMV. I can't fault this state for efficiency nor organization. The lines moved smoothly, people were helpful, even showed a little courtesy and personality in some cases. In order to get this all done we each needed 3 checks, had to wait in 6 lines, and collectively spent over 500 buckeroos. I actually had to run home before we even started because I needed a piece of postmarked mail with my name on it and anyone who knows me knows that I toss the envelopes first chance I get. So I raced home and then raced back with the ONE piece of unopened mail in the house. We waited in line to get numbers, in line to get our licenses, in line to take the vision test, in line to get the actual card, in line to get another number, in line to get our VIN verified, in line to get the registration and just when we thought the end was in sight we needed the address of the finance companies for our cars and had to make frantic calls which thankfully were successful.

Caroline slept for 85% of the 100 hours we spent there - GOD BLESS HER!!!!

Then to treat ourselves we went to the Bridgeport Bluefish game last night- paid 14 bucks for third row home plate seats and had an absolute blast!!! If not for the crazy rain delay Caro would have made most of the game, but we ended up having to leave in the 5th inning. She was standing up on our laps and cooing the whole time. Good practice for her first official baseball game in a couple weeks in Beantown!!!!

Relaxing today as a fam and then Angela's shower on Sunday...

  1. Congratulations on being official! I'm glad your change from MA to CT went smoothly. When we moved to NY and I had to deal with their DMV, it was hell. I ended up calling Aron after one trip crying and saying "I want to move back to Connecticut." I never thought I would long for the days of CT's DMV!! And isn't if fun to go to Bluefish games! I enjoy them. One of my exes is their groundskeeper!
