I’m not going to complain about the snow. I’m not going to complain about the snow.
Peanut Butter Runner was the first blog I ever read and still one of my most favorite blogs to read every day. The other day Jen mentioned that she finally changed her name back to her maiden name. It took her a few years following her divorce to feel ready and comfortable with the change.
I haven’t changed my name in case you were wondering. Ever since my divorce, I wanted to keep my married name for my son’s sake so that we would have the same last name. I didn’t want him to feel weird or embarrassed that his mom had a different last name than him.
Over the years though since my divorce, I often think about wanting to drop my married last name because it really doesn’t feel like me anymore. Funny how that happens though.
I can recall when my divorce first started and the divorce papers stated that I was to return my married name to my ex. Like what was that about?! You can’t make me give up my name! How dare you make such a request?!
I am pretty sure it was standard legal jargon but it took me time to not take the divorce language, accusations and nonsense so seriously. Eventually I got so used to seeing the ridiculousness that I would take the latest divorce papers to come in the mail and instead of reading, I would file them away in my version of a filing cabinet – the garbage can.
I hate the mail, you know that right? Absolutely hate getting the mail. It all stems from my divorce. I try really hard to get over it but I can’t help myself. If I could go completely paperless I would but the government mandates that I have a mailbox.
Since we will be snowed in today (and I bet tomorrow too), we went out for dinner last night before going to the grocery store. It started out that we were on the way for pizza, turned into let’s go to Chipotle yet we ended up at Cheeburger Cheeburger.
I haven’t been to Cheeburger Cheeburger in forever! Actually, according to my blog, I haven’t been there since the summer of 2013.
I ordered a big salad with a veggie burger and lots of toppings. It’s fun when the burger places do big salads with burger toppings although I never understood why this burger place had baby corns. I really like baby corns in Chinese food so why not include them here in my salad too I guess.
So today’s blizzard and snow day means very little to me since I work from home. Regular day going on over here only I have the pleasure of my son being home with me.
Interpret “pleasure” any way you wish. 🙂
