New Stuff!

I have a new haircut, yes, horror of horrors, I am a girl with short hair. It's so much nicer than my old hair. I left it long for about five years. It was time for a drastic change.

I have a new name. Hurray! I got my new driver's license and other identification stuff that has to be on file. Of course, the most fun thing about this was getting the people to put my maiden name as a second middle name. I now have four names. It took a while to get that to work. First they kept telling me that I could not just change my name like that. That is utterly ridiculous. If people can do hyphenated names they can add a middle name. Besides, my best friend added her maiden name as a middle name! So I knew it was possible. They finally realized that it was the stupid computer programs that would not accept a name that long, not that it was illegal or anything. This happened just as I was beginning to think I might have to just let it lie and work up the money to get a court order and have it changed. My driver's license had to accept my two middle initials instead of names, because I have a really long name now. It makes me happy. I am such a fan of my maiden name that I could not just ignore it. I could have done the hyphenated thing with a clean conscious I suppose, because of my Latino roots. That's normal in many countries. But this is how I really wanted my name to be and this is how it is.

I wish I had a new job, but I still have not heard back and I am edgy these days. I still have time to hear back, but I hate waiting! I keep praying and trying to put my trust in God over this whole job thing. It is hard to wait for something that seemed right when it started and remains up in the air for so long. I began applying for other jobs. My heart is not in that though, because I still feel the job in Indy is the right one.

Man, I'm getting anxious for you and that job. I keep waiting to see an update displaying, I got it! I got it! Anyway, I can understand the name thing. Not that I've been married, but I'm Foley. My last name is my identity, what am I going to do? LOL! Maybe I'll just become Foley Insert last name here. But, then all the people who know me as Erin would be confused. Well, I guess I'll just have to wait til my time comes! :) I'm kind of hoping the last name will start with an I. *wink*

Eric: Okay, if you check out my user info on my lj account you can see a picture of me with short hair. It is not curled or anything, that's just the haircut really. I have definitely figured out some cute things to do with it now.

Foley: To me you will always be Foley. We should talk soon again.

A Woman's hair is her glory!

Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering (1 Cor 11:14-15).
