I learned a very important lesson at the DMV today – Ask first, then wait. I had been procrastinating going to the DMV, and waiting in line to have my name changed on my license. Especially since I HAD JUST DONE IT the month before our wedding (my license was going to expire while we were on my honeymoon, and there was no way around that one…ugh!) Anyways, I rolled out of bed, went to the DMV on halloween – thinking who’s gonna go to the DMV on Halloween? Apparently a lot of people. I got out of the car and saw a line wrapping out the door of the DMV, and I got in it. And stood in it – for about an hour. Until I decided to stop stalking people on Facebook long enough to notice some people just walking in the building…hmm. I asked the guy behind me to hold my place and walked up to the police officer at the door and told him I was here to change my name on my license. After which he escorted me INSIDE and told me to stand in a different line that wrapped around the inside of the DMV. Awesome. 2 hours later, I was officially Mrs. Lindsey Miller. According to the New Jersey DMV at least. Eventually I will call the social security office, my banks, student loan office, get a new passport and tell all the other 8 million people that all need to be individually told that I have married. But for now, I will flash my license that doesn’t match any of my credit cards or other identification and feel like I have at least made progress.
*side note for your entertainment: when I tried to change my status on Facebook to Married (way more important than my social security card). I was declined because Micah was “already in a relationship” a.k.a. engaged to me.
