Snarky Brides

Help me deal with my family.

I didn't change my last name.  H is ok with it, I'm ok with it.  That's what counts.  My parents don't giveafuck, and his parents, well...nevermind.

But my family is driving me crazy.  I was very clear about not changing my last name.  My grandma (crazy I'm coming, no I'm not, you can't go either, ok I'm coming, no I'm not, yes I am grandma from my wedding drama stories, if you remember) is upset that I didn't change my last name (why, I have no idea).  She sent me a check for my birthday.  She made it out to Jessica H's Last Name.  I got it cashed, but only after arguing with my bank for a solid 15 minutes.  My dad called and let her know that that wasn't my last name (again).  Then a couple weeks later, she sent us a check for the wedding.  Again, made out just to Jessica H's Last Name.  I called her and let her know we really appreciated the gift, but I couldn't deposit the check.  She said she'd send a new one, and she never did.  Not a big deal, I don't care about the money.  But she told my dad she would never write me a check to my maiden name.  So she's going to keep sending me these checks I can't deposit.  She's not the only one that continues to send things to me as H's last name either, it's all on my dad's side of the family.

Any advice? 

Everything the light touches is my kingdom.
