So far so good. We've been married a little over 2 weeks and my only complaint is that I don't get to see him enough. Buie works as a manager at a large chain book store in Little Rock and his hours don't allow a lot of flexibility. Sometimes he works the closing shift 4 pm until midnight. I work everyday from 8 am until 5 pm which means on days that he closes, I don't get to see him except for when I crawl out of bed at 6 am and when HE crawls into bed at 1 am. Therefore, my only complaint of marriage so far is that due to crazy schedules and our hectic lives we don't see each other enough. Cancun spoiled us. For a week, we were literally together 24/7 for 7 days. It was nice.
Now for the fun part. I have to figure out how to get my name changed in the state of Arkansas. Any ideas of where to start?
change my name
get a new Social Security card with my new name
get a new license with my new name
put my new name on our joint account
change my direct deposit paycheck into our joint account
Who knew marriage was so much trouble? ;)
FINALLY get a new license plate on my car that says ARKANSAS instead of LOUISIANA.
get a new LSU decal so that people are not confused as to where my loyalty lies.
These last two don't have anything to do with marriage but I've been living in Arkansas for over three years now (7 years if you count college) and I still have LOUISIANA plates. It's hard to say goodbye to a great state... but Arkansas is officially home now.
