    Government, sheesh!

    My passport is nowhere to be found. And I'm not the one who lost it. It's somewhere between Miami, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. I need it to go on the cruise. And I leave tomorrow. Let's just say the poor customer service guy at Passports and has the patience of Job, especially after dealing with my rants and raves. Thank goodness I had my Birth Certificate for a back up. Oh, wait. Nope, no birth certificate. Hmm. So, it's off to the Utah State Department of Health to the Vital Statistics Department. Downtown. And did I mention this is the State? I know Hester works for the State Department, as does Dale, and now Bryan too, but I can assume they all have some knowledge of what customer service entails.

    Actually, it wasn't as bad as I thought. I must have good luck. Getting my drivers license renewed wasn't too bad either.

    So now I have a certified copy of my birth certificate, no passport, and a renewed drivers license. I should be okay leaving the country. I'm only going to Canada, it's not like they have to worry about me staying there or anything....

    I'm also pretty sure that now that I have my birth certificate, my passport will show up. Had I not gotten the BC, the passport would stay lost. Is that Murphy's Law? And who is this Murphy person? The same Murphy from the Romance?
