Day planners only work if you use them.

Some weeks ago, I found a really great day planner that was small enough to fit into my purse and even better... it was on clearance. But... I haven't exactly used it for its intended purpose, which is NOT to be a paperweight on my antique vanity.

Which brings me to where I am going to be spending my morning, instead of relaxing at home with coffee and a book.

The state vehicle safety and emissions inspection line.

Gah. Both my inspection and my registration expire at the end of March and I have been so preoccupied, I didn't give it any thought. Nor did I plan ahead when I drove across town to the one place that's open on Sundays... so I lack reading material and a sustaining beverage. I'm debating whether its worth it to leave the end of this line of cars, drive over to Borders Books, stock my car for the long wait and return.

hmmm. I have to wonder about this????

So i'm back with books and a caramel latte and only one additional car got in line while I was gone.

Also? On my way back, I was treated to the cutest sight. A black SUV decked out in silver hearts and streamers and a Just Married sign.

The occupants? The happiest-looking elderly couple EVAH. My heart? It glows. There go two people with the best wishes this total stranger can send after them.

Well, at least you remembered the car while it was still March. Could have waited a few days and paid the late fees.
