Blah… what a waste

I’m sure what I’m about to blog about is a common problem among those honeymooning out of the country. I’m talking about the new passport that will be good for about 1 month (if that is how long it takes me to get my name changed).

It had the potential to be really easy though, my current, which may or maynot still be good, is renewable by mail.

But, I just can’t find it… and I looked EVERYWHERE. I did find my passport from 16 years ago, when I was 12, but it was “cancelled” when I got the newer one.

Hence, the holes… I think that counts as “damaged”, but I could be wrong. So, I need to “Apply in Person” and get another passport.

Luckly, because I still have the cancelled passport, I just need to go to take that to the Post Office and I don’t have to locate my Birth Certificate. I’m pretty sure my mom still has my Birth Certificate, but if my luck finding my current passport is any indication, I wouldn’t put money on it.

While I was reading through the list of “or’s” I read that last one “Your name has changed since your U.S. passport was issued and you are unable to legally document your name change“. To me that means I will be getting another passport when Mr Frenchie and I decide to to travel abroad in the future, post name change. However, in that case I will be able to mail it in… I think.

The upside? The upside is this means I will have to get my picture taken and, if I remember correctly, I get to keep the excess pictures. Excess passport pictures is exactly what I need to get my Student ID. Movie discounts here I come!

Are you getting a “temporary” passport too?
