Crap crap crap

Its no secret that my family is taking a big vacation in June.  Its all I seem to talk about in the 3D world In October, we booked flights to Florida.   In January, we booked our Disney resort.   

Here is where I need a kick.... our passports expired March 31, they have been stuck to the fridge awaiting their renewal.  Things that hide in plain sight seem to elude me, and well I forgot about them (kept putting them off is kind of the same thing right?) 

So finally I couldn't put it off any longer, I HAD to get to them.  Rush to town, get pictures taken, call friends and ask them to verify my ID, express post them off to be processed.  Done.

Brushing my teeth yesterday, I glanced at the calender humm no word from the passport office, perhaps I'll call them.... I sent in 3 passports - left off employment information on mine and forgot to get husband to sign kiddos!  

Now I'm in a panic waiting for kiddos to be returned via Canada Post so I can take a day off work and drive to St John's and pay the rush charges.

Yep some days I can be a really dummy....

  1. Really hope the passports come back to you in time Bay Girl, really hoping that with like 9 days left of May you'll get it back in time, I wouldn't be too mad at yourself for forgetting, at least you've remembered now.

  6. I remember having to drive to LA to the Federal Building to pay a ton of money to have my passport expedited because I kept forgetting to get it renewed.

    That is SO stressful, but it always seems to work out.

  7. I hate when I make mistakes like that! I'm more forgiving when other people mess up.
