    Yesterday I found a turtle in my backyard.

    Today...
    -I dropped it off at a wildlife rehab center
    -Drove to my old address to pick up a package that was sent there by mistake (my brother's mistake: he gave the sender the wrong address)
    -The girl who answered the door was paranoid and wouldn't check the mail until her boyfriend was home (this was around 10pm)
    -Midnight I went back hoping the boyfriend was home; he was. He was kind and rational, and checked the mail for me.
    -The package wasn't there.
    -Now I have to check with the post office.
    -On my way back home, I ran a stop sign and got pulled over.
    -The cop cited me twice: 1. Running a stop sign. 2. Having an outdated address on my driver's license.
    -I have 4 days to get the address updated AND contact the judge named on the citation to inform him of the update.
    -The Judge only works from Monday to Thursday. This leaves me with having to update my address tomorrow morning (Friday), and waiting until THE 4TH DAY (Monday) to contact the judge.

    One of the most eventful days I've had all summer......

    UPDATE:
    -I checked with the current resident of the address to which the package was shipped.
    -The package wasn't in their box; they haven't received it.
    -I contacted the post office, and they said they do not have the package.
    -The post office told me to talk to the mail carrier whose route encompasses the address to which the package was shipped.
    -I contacted the leasing office of the apartment complex to which the package was shipped, and they don't have it either.
    -I will contact that mail carrier on Monday, because that's when the post office said I could do so.
    -I went to DPS and got my license updated; the plastic card itself may take until September to arrive, so I'm using a paper slip as a temporary license.
    -I still have to contact the judge on Monday to let him know; and also ask about the other citation.
    -I asked the sender about the notorious package, and he said, according to his records, it has the new status of "undeliverable", and believes it's being sent back to him.

    UPDATE #2:
    -The package was forwarded to my dad's work place. It's in my possession now.
    -By the judge's orders, I have to take Defensive Driving.
    -I have to pay $10 to dismiss the charge for the outdated address on my license.
    -I have to pay $113 for Defensive Driving.
    -The judge only takes money orders.
    -I have until July 22 to pay the full $123 in the form of one money order. Shouldn't be a problem.
    -My brother has taken Defensive Driving before, and said it's little more than a few hours of listening to someone talk, then taking a ridiculously simple exam. *fingers crossed*

    Suddenly I can't stop thinking asbout a turtle singing that Amy Winehouse song.

    Anyway, isn't there a period of time to have the address changed on your license, or are you expected to organise that as you prepare to move?

    I believe you have 4 business days, and with this being the holiday weekend and most offices having Friday off, that gives you until Tuesday or Wednesday to provide proof.

    At least you saved a turtle. That's pretty decent.

    You can get cited for not having a current address on your license? That's crap.

    Yeah, but I had no clue. It might be in the state driver's manual, but it's not like I've got the whole thing memorized. The cop told me I had 4 days, so I'm gonna be panicky about it and assume the weekend counts.

    Technically a type of tortoise. The lady at the rehab center called it a "box turtle".
