Third time’s the charm, right? While Z’s been a pretty decent groom-to-be in the planning stages, it comes with its ups and downs. Sometimes, it really just isn’t that big of a deal if the task at hand didn’t get done. For instance, cake appointments? Meh, it can wait another month. After all, it is why I gave it to him a month prior to wanting it done. However, passports are an entirely different topic.
I still gave him a month of leeway for this task. Seeing, he likes to work at his typical pace – as convenience fits – it may take a bit longer than planned. Three attempts though? Now that, I wasn’t expecting as much.
Attempt 1: Z’s effort got him to the post office and back to my house for an evening of writing in the required information.
Attempt 2: Required both Z + I make a trip to the post office in which he conveniently left his completed application at home. After waiting in line, per usual at the post office of course, we received a second form and a list of requirements.. do you have your birth certificate, hun? Yes, you need your birth certificate. Close, but no cigar. Off we went.
Third time is the charm. With a little bribery on Monday, the passport was done by Thursday! Not even Friday, as given, but a whole day early! Yes, my jaw may have dropped as the text came through.
Was it really the charm or the fact that I threw in a little bribery? Well, throw in a little bribery and things get done. Best of all, it looks like I won’t be traveling to our honeymoon alone after all! *knock on wood* It still takes 3 months to arrive…
