FAMILY FROM OUR WEDDING

ARGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

My hair is frazzled and my eyes are crossed and I am walking around in circles... sigh..........
WHY is it that I never get the EASY button like in the Staples comercials... WHY CAN't I HAVE JUST ONE EASY BUTTON!!!!! so here is the deal.. I go to the post office near my office to do my passport renewal.. I have the pictures I have the forms.. I have my old passport and I have the check.. I buy the padded envelope.. I stand in line 20 minutes only to find out this branch ( EVEN THOUGH IT SAYS SO ONLINE AND THE 1800 post office number says so) DOES NOT DO PASSPORTS.. ..so then I get in my car go to another post office that does them.. about 30 minutes away... I get there.. stand in line for another 20 minutes only to find out that the FUCKING pictures taken at WALGREEENS are too DAMN BIG... however at this post office since they do passports they can do the pictures too.. ONLY THEY DO NOT START DOING PASSPORT PICTURES UNTIL 10 AM.. its 9:35 am.. ( I have been at this over an hour now) so I wait.. and I wait in PASSPORT HELL.. then I Get back in line wait ( why the clerk would not do my damn picture at 9 35 is beyond me.. she could have had some Christmas spirit ya know) another 15 minutes... and then they realize that they have never taken a picture of a SHORT person before.. they have a stool for children.. but if you are under 5ft and an adult you are shit out of luck... they move the camera around and after the 3rd round of shots.. ( between each set of pictures there was a 10 minute wait for development of pictures) they finally get 2 they can use... WELL BECAUSE IT IS SO FRIGGIN HUMID AND HOT HERE in the bossom of DECEMBER.. ( it should be in the 40s no higher than the 50s) it takes another 20 minutes for the photos to dry.... finally the envelope is sealed and hopefully sent out today.. I should have my updated passport in 6 weeks... then I go to the bank to change my name on my account.. and on the joint account I have with my mom.. welllllllllll.. for some reason my dad ( who has been gone since 2001) his name is still on the account so now I have to find a death certificate to fix that.. then on my personal account which my husband is on.. for some reason my moms name is there too.. which that is totally bizzare.. so now that has to be removed and they have to redo the signature cards then everyone has to sign those cards.. the only damn thing that went smoothly was the debit card name change.. sheesh all I want is for some things just to go smoothly .. easily .. uncomplicated.. and my sister is worried that since I dropped my maiden name .. I will have problems when it comes to the legal documents my name is on concerning my mother.. so all of those papers have to be changed too.. WHAT A ROYAL PAIN IN THE TUSH this has been .... I adore my husband.. but I can say I honestly see why some woman avoid changing their names.. I don't think it completely has to do with indepence.. I think it has to do with good grief this is huge to do.. ...
From the land of food... at least that is going well.. Fiber one honey crunch for breakfast with fat free milk
A lean cuisine for lunch with 2 clemintines
an apple and my fiber one bar for morning snack
and craisins and pistacheos for afternoon snack...
I am on my own for dinner tonight .. not sure what I am going to do.. any ideas would be appreciated.. my brain is so fried from this morning's fiasco.. .. I want an easy dinner I was thinking something involving pasta.. or even some cheese toast or maybe just a bowl of cereal.. lately I have not been that hungry at night time... go figure.. lol...

Signing out.. on a muggy, humid , foggy, yucky, a teeny bit of blue sky appearing... Wednesday
Wish me well

Wish you well too

Oh dear, what a blooming fiasco trying to get your passport sorted out! It sounds as if today has been "one of those days" for you!!

I do hope that everything will run smoothly for you from now onwards....

Lots of hugs,

That sounds really frustrating! I didn't have to go through all that stuff. Didn't have that much to begin with. I would have been quite hot! Steam would have been rolling outa my ears. ;)

Wow what a day! I think it was at least a year until I had all my stuff changed to my married name. After the first "round" of important stuff, I put it on the backburner & just did one here and there. It sucks, but once it's done it's done! Try getting used to signing your new name, that's the hard part!
