Monday was a legal holiday, Martin Luther King Day, so the county building was closed. That is how I got to go to the Fancy Food show with no guilt. Anyway, Wednesday I went in ready to do lots marriage of ceremonies . Almost as soon as I sat down they brought me a license.
It was for a very nice couple originally from India. Their mothers were their witnesses. And that is as exciting as my day was. Not another couple came in. I don't think we even sold a license after that. I read, I talked to clerks on break. I checked my email and facebook. I took a walk. It was a long slow afternoon.
Thursday a friend and I went to lunch. We both had things going on in our lives that have ticked us off and we needed some girl time to vent. I cheered her up so much that she let out a shriek that turned heads in the restaurant. She got even, she told me something so funny I nearly spit tea everywhere. Thank goodness for cloth napkins. A successful cheer up session.
Update on the mess with Social Security: last week after I talked to the Assistant District Manager they agreed to cut us an emergency check. (Remember they sent our checks for December to a closed bank account.) The emergency checks were only a percentage of the whole amount. The rest would be deposited in our bank account in 5 business days. Right. Yesterday Marty received the rest of his money in the mail. Not a deposit, a check. My check, nothing. Not in the mail, not in the bank. Guess who gets to start fighting with the idiots at Social Security again. On a Monday. That seems appropriate.
