Yesterday was our first day of work. It was actually really fun and exciting, and it went really well. My feet still hurt from standing for so long, but I was expecting that.
I finally got my name changed officially today! i'm still waiting for my new SS card, until i can change my drivers license, passport, get a joint bank account... ugh. i have my work cut out for me.
today we went to michael's and bought stuff to make an autumn wreath. we also priced christmas trees, and ornaments! being a 'family' is fun. we never even thought about getting a tree the past few years, even though I was living in a big house. Now that I'm in a tiny apartment, I'mm really excited about having a proper christmas.
I'm not the sort to go overboard with kitschy cutsey dustcatcher decorations, but i want to have a little christmas tree, at least our first christmas. I was fine with not having one at home growing up so many years, and i thought it was pretty neat that my mom made a christmas mural when we were really little and couldn't get one. (which I think I might inherit?) but this year, I really want a tree.
