The Name Change Game

We got married 9 years ago...well almost, on November 22 it will be 9 years. I never legally changed my last name because of some technecalities with my retirement benefits. I've since discovered that it wouldn't make any difference anyway now since my first husband has passed on, and so I'm on the journey to legally change my last name. Let me tell you..IT'S A PAIN IN THE NECK!!! The government never makes anything easy, simple, or convenient.
I suppose I really shouldn't complain. It's probably for my protection since identity theft is so prevalent and easy. Although why anyone would want to steal my identity is beyond me...it's not like I actually have anything worth stealing! All my valuables are living, breathing beings and not likely to sit still for being hijacked by an identity thief.
So I'm off to do my business today...joy, joy. I'll get to sit in line and wait for someone to begrudgingly help me....you'd think they'd be happy to do their job. But that's a topic for another day.

I had no idea. I hope it went well and wasn't as bad as you thought. :)
