I have a dilemma. My license expires on 4/4 and I just booked travel for 4/18 under my maiden name. I was going to put Stephanie maiden married on my new license, but the travel agent said it has to match exactly. Is this really that big of a deal?

ETA: I do have my passport with maiden name on it. That will work to get through security, right?

As long as you only need one form of ID, your passport will work. I actually feel weird flying using my license as my ID!
feels like some kind of ride but it's turning out just to be life going absolutely perfectly

This happened to me for our honeymoon - we went 6 months after our wedding, but the ticket was booked with my maiden name. What I didn''t realize was that I was changing my name on my license the month before because it was expiring so I couldn''t use the license for ID. The name on the ticket does need to match the identification exactly from what I''ve been told, so I took my passport (with my maiden name which matched the ticket) and it was fine. I hated carrying around the passport, but as far as the airport security goes, I had no problems with it.

I just got chewed out by a client of a client.

My boss has been working with this guy about some missed payments, and since my boss is on a conference call and can't answer, I got the call. Lucky me.

I love when men get mad and just want someone to yell at. Totally took me back to my investment days.

One day my DH had the idea to flight for the night to Boston, I put a couple of things in my backpack and we went to the airport then I realized I did not have any valid ID. They let me fly anyways. They just checked my personal belongs by hand. It did not took more than 5 minutes.


So I''m sure there would not be any problem in your situation.

LOL Gabby, that''s something DH would do, most definitely. I do know that while I can avoid the ID to check in by using the kiosk and not checking bags, to get through security they''ll want to look at my ID. I don''t want to get there and not have anything on hand. I think I''ll bring my passport.

Zoe, I''m sorry you''re in a bad mood-must be pretty dang bad if not even chocolate pudding is working! Shall I tease you into a good mood?

Trapper turned 3 Friday. He was born on my favorite Uncle''s birthday-we picked this day especially (was c-section) b/c my Uncle had always hoped he''d have someone in the family born on his birthday..Uncle passed away in 2005, so Friday was a bittersweet day.

I have a pair of pants I refer to as my "pajama" pants.  They''re dressy, but totally non-form fitting, so I wear them when I don''t want to wear "real" clothes or I''m flying somewhere and don''t want to mess with a dress/business suit on a plane.  I''ve had them about a year and am totally paranoid they''re going to get worn out so I actually went out today to find another pair.  This is sad.  And pathetic.  I used to dress so much cuter than this, but I''m just tired.

NY&Company City Knit. They can look dressy, but they are just oooooohhhh so comfy. I wear them when I''m not in the mood to put on stuffy, non-forgiving clothing.

I tried one of those Full Bar things today... you eat one, and a glass of water 30 mins before your meal, and you are supposed to eat less.  I''ve been pretty full ever since!  I picked it up at Bed Bath and Beyond on a whim... don''t know where else they are sold...  linky

I have been blessed fortunately for the most part with good groups - until now.Image

I also have a natural tendency to take on a leadership role when no one else steps up; so now they likely expect me to do everything for them - well, not going to happen boys!Image

We do at least have a system where you put in an anonymous assessment of each group member''s performance with the report, so the marks can be modified accordingly.

You can bet if they don''t step up I''ll be filling that page UP, ha Image

I can die a happy woman.

In the 80's, when I was growing up, a popular food was the 'Steak um'... basically a thin slice of beef, pulverized into thin sheets... think meat paper.  (I know, sounds tasty, right?)  It cooked faster than a jif and was great for learning to cook as a kid, and my dad LOVED them, so we'd have them often as a quick lunch.  People used them to make philly cheese steaks and the like.

Enter me, today at the grocery store... and there it was.  CHICKEN 'steak ums'!  Ok, not the same brand, but the same thing, but with chicken!  (I should mention that I don't eat beef anymore...)  OMG, every disgusting memory of eating this random "meat" as a child came flooding back, and I had to buy it. 

I've now eaten two chicken pitas (chicken, garlic, swiss and spinach), in all of their greasy and kind of gross glory, and I couldn't be happier... unless I made another one. 


Image


And when I say that I 'can die a happy woman,' I moreso mean, I'm probably going to die tomorrow from eating this nonsense...

Ugh. I wound up doing a term project pretty much entirely by myself in a signals class.. one boy wrote the intro and conclusion (which I then had to edit because he misinterpreted most of my data), the other girl spellchecked the final paper and printed twenty copies for the class. And we all got the same grade. Image


Good luck AJ!! At least you can out them if they don't step up!
