Raechel and I decided to hyphenate. Only, we're taking her Mom's maiden name instead of her dad's last name. She thought of changing it for a while, and this seemed like an excellent time. Well, it turns out that if we want to use anything besides some combination of her old name and my name, we need a court decree.

So we got one. A couple of days and a chunky fee later, we have some pieces of paper with our new names.

So we changed our drivers licenses.

And sent in to the Social Security Administrator to change it with them. Who knows how many weeks that will take.

Because Uconn won't change our names on record until they have copies of our new Social Security cards. I put in to have her added to my insurance before we got the court decree, that'll save us some money, plus its a better plan (yay for working for the state). So when the new Social Security cards come in, I'll have to change both of us.

My boss thinks that I changed my name specifically so that he won't be able to send me email. Once it goes through, it will probably take him at least a week to figure it out. In the mean time, my uncle who also works for Uconn is probably going to be getting a bunch of stuff from my boss, meant for me.

We changed the names on our bank accounts and notified all the people we owe money to.

I even got a new gmail account. Unfortunately, gmail won't allow hyphens in email addresses (which is complete crap, there are millions of email addresses with hyphens in them). So it looks kind of funny.

I'm learning to write my new signature just as illegibly as my old one. Remember to use it is not going quite as well. Still fun, though.

Cool! I was down with making up an entirely new name, but we got lazy :)
