I placed an order with the Sampler Girl on Wednesday and didn't know that there was a giveaway/contest involved. Today, I checked my e-mail and there was a list of winners.
I need to admit, I'm still not used to my married name. It's not that I don't like it, I'm just not used to writing it. You would think by now I would remember my last name is Harper. I'm used to it being Left-brain's name, I know I'm Mrs. Left-brain Harper. But I'm not used to being Rachel Harper. I still want to write my old last name, and so I have to focus extra hard. But I'm forcing myself to use it--I won't get used to it if I never make myself write it and use it. Especially now that I changed my bank account to the new name and new address. On Wednesday, I was a good little wife and put in the new name as my name. And just kept going.
Today, when I opened the email, I saw "Rachel Harper, MD" as a winner. My first instinct was, "Bummer, it's another Rachel. And not me." It took me a minute to figure out that it had to be me. And then I felt like a dummy. Maybe one of these days.
I'm just happy I won! Woo hoo!
