Today I learned the importance of having a contact number for your spouse. Normally I just email him at work. I figure that he is probably as busy as I am....so I don't want to call unless it's an emergency. And those type of things never happen right?
After dropping off the boys, I quickly hustled down to get a new ID card. I had made an appointment and was prepared for an in-and-out process.
I was a little over 30 minutes early when I arrived but figured that was never a bad thing. The waiting room was empty and my little miss and I were quickly ushered back.
The lady typed things into the computer and then asked me if my husband had filled out his paper work for the process (military ID renewal). I told her that I assumed he did since he scheduled the appointment for me. A few clicks later and she informed me that they didn't have the paperwork in their system but that my husband could take care of it from work.
Not a problem, I broke out my Blackberry and zipped him a quick email with an attached picture of the form he needed to fill out. What did we ever do without technology?
Then I waited
and waited some more.
Almost 40 minutes later and no reply.
Guess that he was working...go figure.
I sadly walked out of the waiting room after letting the lady know that I hadn't gotten a reply. I guess that we'll be trying again tomorrow.
A hard lesson learned on making sure that you have contact information for your spouse. I'll be putting his work number into my phone asap.
