I came across a video about how to replace broken slats on Venetian blinds. The blinds in my bedroom are those really cheap plastic kind. They snap easily and I don't think the beating down Florida sun helps them much. I had three broken slats so I was thinking of replacing the blinds altogether, but frugality won out.
I went through the process of untying the strings, rearranging the slats, then rethreading the strings--tedious but not hard. So I will have those blinds for a little longer.
I also registered my car in Florida. It lives here full time even if I don't. I have my new Florida tag and I replaced the Vermont one. Now I will have to drive like a Floridian.
The process was not nearly as difficult as I thought it might be. The hard part was finding the department of motor vehicles--otherwise known as the county tax collector's office. Well, even harder was paying the $326 initial registration fee.
I now own a little piece of Florida land and the house that sits on it and a Florida car. Lucky me!
