i am headed to the DMV today. i finally got my social security card with my new last name, so now it's time for a california driver's license. however, since the DMV isn't usually the most pleasant place, i'm going to be optimistic and think happy thoughts. i'm going to think about the lovely walk nicholas and i took around our neighborhood. and i'll think about how the leaves that had fallen on the ground looked like stars. hopefully that will help. and i'll also take a magazine. :) wish me luck. happy tuesday!
