I've had quite a few e-mails from readers asking where I am, what I'm doing and when I'll be back. These kind words and messages reinforce what I already know about the stamping and scrapping community that I am a part of: You are an amazing group of women that I am incredibly lucky to have in my life. Thank you for caring. Ske-doosh.
ETA: In the interest of time saving, I'm going to copy and paste an e-mail I sent out to Kathy today (waves frantically at Kathy!!) :
Funniest blog post, ever! I've gotten a lot of e-mails regarding this one...snort! It's a Québec gov't thing. You have to have a "good reason" for wanting to change it and it's decided upon by a case by case basis. I could've taken it further but I didn't. Most women in this province keep their maiden name and since my maiden name is my father's name (whom I don't know and have no interest in knowing) I wanted to ditch his name. I go by Côté unofficially, though, so it's all good. : )
I didn't want my readers to think that the government of Canada is backasswards so I hope this clears up my journaling. I'm sure I could've insisted and taken it further but I don't have the patience for redtape. I get my daily revenge by calling myself Mrs. Côté anyway. LOL!
