Did a brief phone-video house tour before heading north for Thanksgiving... unfortunately, due to the limitations of battery and memory, in my redo of the main floor, the living room got cut off... maybe after Christmas has come and gone we'll loop thru the living room again.

The new Texan recently blogged about her mug-shot-like new driver's license, and I realized I hadn't changed mine yet. I'd actually been delaying it because according to the official website, regardless of if you were moving to the state or if you were a new driver, you had to take the written test and possibly even take a driving test pending the examiner deeming it necessary. And THAT was not high-priority for me. (The website overstated. Real people let an out-of-state license suffice.)
But although they took a photo, they didn't send me home with it on an immediately-ready shiny plastic card. Instead I got a North Carolina 20-day Temporary Driving Certificate. If I got stopped, I would have to show my PA license as well as this half-sheet of printer paper with all my stats.
The real card will come by mail next week.
Which is one thing for a library card (they do that to verify your address), but on a driver's license it means that the infamous driver's license photo goes unseen until there's a week between you and the clerk at the DMV. There's no doublecheck on the photo. There's no retakes. And the clerk gets no repercussion. The mail carrier might, though.

God asks us questions not because he does not know the answers but because he wants us to know the answers.
One learns salvation their entire life -- there are no adults of God.

No one wants that wagon wheel chandelier.
Lowe's doesn't carry it any longer.
Even the furniture consignment shop gave me specific directions to goodwill.
In all honesty, they would have taken it for consignment if it was in perfect condition. But it was hung so low that even I walked into it, and I never have to duck for ANYthing. It was inevitable that something break on it, and indeed it had a single cracked globe.

Our mixed marriage on a night like tonight:
Big Frog: You broke his NOSE that one time!
me: We TOTALLY broke his nose that one time!
Big Frog: SQUAAAAAASH!
me: Go go go!
We have two guaranteed NFL head-to-heads/yr, & often another in the playoffs. Also we have a Big 10 head-to-head (most?) years, & one in cousins' league FF. So far we've never had all 3 in the same weekend, but I suppose it's possible.
Good thing the Sunday School on conflict resolution started today. :-)
