I got my Ohio driver's license today so I'm official. I had to take a forty-question traffic laws exam and I missed five! They were about points and DUI fines and I kind of just guessed. I was panicking at first until I saw across the screen that it's only a fail if you miss 11. Phew. I got the important stuff like signs and speed limits right anyway. The BMV people here are even nice. Everyone keeps saying Welcome to Ohio.
Within minutes of having my new license in hand, I had a library card. I signed Ivy up for an art class, too. The rest of the day kind of got away from me, though.. I read a little, did some work, knitted half-heartedly. I'm just kind of restless. Ivy wanted a pair of slippers so she can "skate" to Cole Porter Pandora on our hard floors and I got bored after making one. It's super easy but I don't like the big needles. I also wanted to simmer up a pot of tomato basil soup tonight if I ever find a recipe I like to go along with grown up grilled cheeses but in the end we're having chicken bites and mini tater tots.
It still feels like vacation here in the sense that we are the only people we know, pretty much and sometimes that's nice and sometimes it's really boring. And Jeff's at work a lot and it's just me and the kids allofthetime and I really want to leave but I don't even know where I'd go. So I just mill around here doing this and that. Waiting for something to happen but I don't know what.
