Life moves slowly when you want it to go quicker

I'm still not officially employed.  Not that I'm surprised, it just feels like more should be happening.  It is moving along, though, so I can't complain.  I completed and sent in the actual application forms a couple days ago, and now they're doing a background check.  I think after that is when I get to be officially hired.  So it's really not that far off.  I'm just impatient and I want to be able to tell everyone about it, instead of just the select few.

I went on Monday to get my driver's license switched from Alberta to Ohio.  What a pain this is turning out to be!  I went to the DMV a few weeks ago to switch over both my plates and license.  I was able to get Ohio plates with no problem.  The girl who helped me said I would have to go down the row to the testing office for them to test my eyes before I could get a new license, but that the testing place is closed on Mondays (which this was) so I'd have to do it another day.  I hadn't bothered to go back until this past Tuesday.  Come to find out that not only do I have to have my eyes tested, I also have to do both the written and driving tests again!  She said that it doesn't matter that my original driver's license was in Ohio, since my current one is from Canada, it's basically like I'm starting over.  On top of that, I have to get a form filled out by a doctor because I'm a Type I diabetic, like I did in Alberta.  *sigh*  I was able to go ahead and do the eye and written test - both of which I passed with flying colors - that day.  But I have to get the physician form filled out before I can do the driving test.  I'm not worried about the driving test.  I'm just really annoyed that I'm having to bother with all of this, especially the physician form.  This kind of thing always feels like I'm being punished or picked on when I didn't do anything wrong.  I'm not diabetic because I've made bad choices or something.  My pancreas just doesn't work.

Anyone want to trade their pancreas for something I'll knit for you?
