She changes everything she touches

and everything she touches changes.

The current plan is that this coming week (hopefully on my birthday) I will be filing paperwork for my legal name change, which means dealing with a number of governmental bureaucracies – one of my least favorite things, but very necessary.

Aside from the name change itself, I need to have my birth certificate corrected, my Veteran’s records and benefits corrected, Social Security number and benefits … oh, and my passport, which I actually managed to find tonight. It’s been expired since 1979, but they do ask about prior issuance of such. I hadn’t seen mine in several years, and was assuming it had been lost during one of the moves, but happened across it.
