I'm in! I'm in! I'm in!

So yesterday's event wasn't so much of an interview. Unless you consider being asked two questions and showing some ID an interview. The questions were:

1) Do I have any dependents in or out of Canada?
2) Have I ever been denied entry into Canada or been deported because of a crime or other reason?

Voila! Signed on the dotted line. That's was it. In 6-8 weeks I'll get my actual card. Then I can apply for Social Insurance, get on OHIP and most importantly travel freely in and out of Canada. Whee! I spent more time traveling to/from Scarborough and waiting for my number to be called than I did in the actual "interview." I really thought they would have asked some questions about my relationship with Paul, scrutinize our marriage license or SOMETHING! Oh, well. I'm not complaining.

Unfortunately today I'm feeling a wee bit under the weather. It started last night at dinner. I guess I really stressed myself out with not knowing how the interview was going to be handled and all that stress I had built up not knowing really has taken a toll on me. But I can't collapse yet. I have to get through the DKC meeting tonight. Hopefully I'll have a voice still by this evening.

They didn't ask me one question about Canada! Can you believe it? Maybe they're saving all the hard questions for citizenship.

Rock! Congratulations! Now take care of yourself and don't get sick. I hear that Lisa Souza sock yarn cures sore throats... or is that Koigu? I forget.
