I just didn't have the uummph to come up with a picture that describes today's news...so work with me, Ok?
We are still waiting on the Visas with news that they will eventually arrive, we hope it is before our current Visas expire in 9 days...that would put us in a bad place if they were later than they are now.
Just in case we didn't have enough to occupy our thoughts, today we were renewing our vehicle registration when the clerk discovered an error in the "Code" used to calculate our particular make and model. It seems that the Department of Motor Vehicles have undercharged us almost $3500 in vehicle taxes the last few years. Even though we have been on time with all the billings, the formula used to figure our taxes was out-O-whack. Being a foreigner owning a 4x4 seems to be a contributing factor.
Although it really wasn't any one's fault other than a clerical-programming mistake we now have to figure out where we are going to find an additional 3500 USD on top of the nearly 7k the Visas are costing us.
Morton's Salt comes to mind, "When it Rains, it Pours". More from the edge after the lights come back on.
