a little more paperwork & a little more packing

Our agency received R's corrected and apostilled employment letter today, so that's another last bit of paperwork finished. All that remains now is the 171-H and our medical forms, which we're dealing with tomorrow. At 7:50am tomorrow, we're both going to the doctor to have our blood work and TB tests done, and we're dropping off the medical forms for our doctor to fill out. Sometimes we wonder if there is ever any communication between people in offices. When R made our appointments 2 weeks ago, he went over exactly which tests we were going to need and why. So of course, the office called me this morning to say they had no idea what lab work we needed tomorrow or why it was needed! It would be so nice if people talked to one another.

This afternoon, I went to the store and got a few more of the items on my list: neosporin, immodium, benadryl, small packs of kleenex, ziploc bags, disposable razors, a sink stopper, and a small led flashlight. It made me feel better to check some more off the list!

We also found out today that we have to go to the DMV tomorrow! Because we just haven't done enough paperwork lately! When we got married, I changed my name on my driver's license, and then when we moved into this house, I changed the address on my driver's license. I thought they had changed everything, but my car, tag, and taxes were all still listed under my maiden name and our old address. I never got the sticker for my tag, because it was sent to the old address. The post office didn't forward it because it was listed under my maiden name. So now I have an expired tag, and I have to go to the DMV tomorrow to get it all straightened out. Thanks to the adoption, I just happened to have extra certified copies of our marriage license! R was laughing at me, becuase in less than 10 minutes, I had the form printed off the DMV website and in a folder, along with the marriage license, tax receipt, and car title. I can pull some paperwork together now!

So those are all my annoyances for the day. At least it's passing the time while we wait!

Good luck at the DMV Ana! You are pushing paperwork with the best of them!
Good luck with the medicals - ours took a while to get the results of some of the tests back. Hope yours come back quickly!
I may steal your great list of packing items. So far, I've only managed to get the suitcase out of the closet.
