I'm celebrating my first week as The Captain's wife :-) . . . yes, it is ok to call me a romantic fool because I am!
We have spent most of the week sitting in governmental agency offices . . . officially changing my name. WOW I had forgotten about all the bureaucratic red tape involved with getting married. And we still aren't done.
By far the biggest nightmare was updating my driver's license. OMG . . . it took HOURS of sitting and waiting and then the process itself was very ponderous. Good thing I'm organized and was ready with more than enough paperwork . . . each piece of paper was scrutinized and then verified by yet another person. By the time they took my photo for the new license, I felt like a criminal taking a mug shot.
Trying to get a fishing license proved to be yet another ponderous procedure although it was the same office, same computer system . . . however, being that only SOME of my paperwork is in my new name and their database had not yet updated . . . NO FISHING LICENSE after sitting and waiting for another period of time and then trying to get it processed.
We spent all afternoon in that one office . . . and I'm not the most patient person, especially without a cigarette all that time!
I would do it all again . . . I love being The Captain's wife :)
Have an awesome Labor Day weekend everybody!
