New license plateAdmittedly, yesterday was not my finest moment.  I seemed to spiral into a swirling drain of insecurities.  But, today I woke up with a whole new determination to figure it all out (hopefully it will last until I check a few things off the list).

First stop…Department of Motor Vehicles.  Of course, who could have EVER guessed that you go to the County Tax Collector to get your license plates?  And, if you write a check (which we did) you make it out to the person…the tax collector.  So, I wrote a check to Scott Randolph for over $1000 today to transfer two license plates and two driver’s licenses.  That was such an odd feeling. But I am guessing Mr. Randolph will not make away with my check.  And even if he does throw caution to the wind, I have everything I need to get my resident rate Disney annual passes.

To be honest…that was the only reason I put the DMV top on my list!

About The Author

I am the mom of the typical American family that did a not-so-typical thing! We moved 1000 miles south of our hometown to a city we knew little about. Those first few weeks were crazy! I didn't go anywhere without putting the address into my GPS. I drove the wrong way on the Turnpike & the 408 and at one point ended up in Winter Park when I was headed to Winter Springs! We struggled with everything from finding doctors and dentists to determining where to grocery shop. Every trip to get gas or dinner was a new exploration and adventure. Within a few weeks, however, we had made a serious dent in our "To Find" list and started to feel a little confident in this new city. Today, It has been nearly 2 years since we pulled that moving truck into Orlando and we all couldn't be happier or more settled! This isn't the path for every family...that's for sure. But if you are prepared for the same journey, hopefully I can be a resource for you so you don't end up in Hunter's Creek when you are trying to go to Altamonte Springs!
