It’s Official!!!!

1 Feb

I got it in the mail today – my name change is official!  I open that envelope and literally jumped up and down squealing in my kitchen.  I have NEVER done that before, not when I got into college or graduated, and not for any other major or significant event in my life.

I don’t have anything to compare it to.  I’m not sure I’ve felt such relief or joy.  Ever.  I am me again.  I’m no longer carrying around the extra baggage of his name like a permanent yoke around my neck.  Its freeing in a way I couldn’t imagine before it was an actual reality.

It looks like tomorrow will be spent making calls, visiting the DMV, and ensuring my correct name is everywhere it possibly can be.  Yay!!!

If I’m this happy about the name, I can only imagine how it will be when I get that divorce paper!!!

    I am really so happy for you and I am so happy that you are so happy. I don’t know if I ever told you this, probably not but I always thought he was not the one. I don’t know why, but I always had that feeling every time I read your posts! Fresh start, single life! 😉 Congrats!

    Haha!!! I am ecstatic for you. How liberating. I like how you described it: “I’m no longer carrying around the extra baggage like a permanent yoke around my neck.”
