Today, getting another task checked off the list. Last weekend, it was Covid Vaccine #2. Looking back, I feel fortunate to have gotten both vaccinations as it was quite the process securing appointment times. I went to multiple vax sites many times, only to be alerted, ‘no appointments available’. I finally figured it out, 6:30 a.m. was the magic ticket. 6:30 in the morning at Walgreens.com. Still, I had to act quickly, because as seconds ticked away, so did many of the appointment times. It worked though, and this task is done.
Today, task #2, renewing my driver’s license. It wouldn’t be a big deal, but this time around I need the vision screening, so I can’t just check off a box and handle it electronically. Once again, scoring an appointment time has been quite the ordeal, thank you wonderful state of Illinois! Every time I would go to the DMV site, there would be one time available, on one calendar day only, and it would never be at a location anywhere near me. The system does not make sense!
The other morning, I treated it like Walgreens, as if I were racing many others to get the golden vaccine appointment. I logged onto the IL DMV at the magical time of 6:30 a.m. and tadaaa, a Golden Saturday 8:40 a.m. appointment appeared, and at the location nearest me! Scored big!
So this morning, in a little while, off I go to renew my driver’s license. Such an exciting Saturday! But, with an 8:40 appt, there’s still plenty of time to make this Saturday exciting. I’ll have to remember, should I ever want to buy a lotto, I should make that purchase around that magical time of 6:30 a.m., you never know?
