Tradition says that once you are married you then go to change your name. While I am participating in this lovely tradition it is not exactly the best experience. First it is an odd feeling to no longer have the name you grew up with. It takes getting used to I suppose. Plus there are way too many things to think of when you change your name. Last week I officially changed my name with the social security administration. Now that I finally got my new card in the mail, this week was the time to start the rest of the "fun".
I attempted to get a new driver's license today. That was not so successful. I thought I just needed my new social security card but apparently you need your marriage license also. It is not enjoyable to wait outside in 90 degree weather for 45 minutes to realize you wasted your time! Then again this is fairly classic for me. Once I get that fixed (I suppose I will wait in line again tomorrow) then I have to think of all the bills in my name and change them.
Plus we still haven't figured out what bills to combine and what to keep separate. Confusing decisions! On a brighter note though the biggest bill- rent- may be working out. I went to see the possible townhouse today:
I am trying to learn that every once and awhile it's OK to do something for yourself. So although it is against my nature to spend a lot of money this was a fun thing to buy for us. Hopefully this TV lasts a long time though because my sensibility will need a long time to recharge before I could spend that much money again!!
