I've been busy replacing my driver's license, opening a new checking account, and getting notarized reports of my stolen Visa check card. I'm still kicking myself for my carelessness.
On the other hand, it's a humbling, naked experience to go about with only the cash in my diaper bag. It's much easier to resist buying extras without the insurance of my debit card. Not a bad way to kick off a new financial year, is it?
While we were at the express DMV downtown, we stopped in the Tennessee State Museum. Good, free field trip for school age children, with cool Paleolithic dioramas and artifacts.
