Before the next election, I will have to change my name and that will be a process that involves several steps. I'll be starting on that when I get back home. But meanwhile I've been living kind of a double life. It makes buying things on line very interesting. I send the stuff to the new me at my new address, but the old me who has the charge card with the old billing address (where Mr. Ex still lives and pays the bills) does the buying. But as of yesterday, that's changing too, since I finally got some spousal support and will now have my very own charge cards!

I voted today! Before I left California, I ordered an absentee ballot but I had no faith it would actually arrive. I figured the days would inch by getting closer and closer to the election while my mailbox sat empty and then a few days before the election, I'd have to call L.A. County Registrar and start over. The reason for my glum attitude was that I changed my registration address and requested the absentee ballot (which had to be sent to where I'm staying in Virginia) on the internet in pretty much one transaction. I thought the situation was far too complicated. But it worked.
