Update Of The Day!

Okay, we just got an email from our agency. Apparently, there is still no definite date for our Consulate Appointment. But it's looking very likely that they will be able to squeeze us in for a September 25th appointment. We will know a definite date, along with itinerary and flight reservations, etc. on Tuesday. In their opinion, we need to prepare for a departure date of Sept. 11th.

NOT my favorite day to travel in a big huge airplane. Not that I'm superstitious or anything. Just not this American's favorite day to be leaving family and friends and flying across the ocean. In a huge jetliner. I'm sure you understand. . . .

So. There it is. Nothing definite. But a tentative departure date that is only 14 days away.

14 days! 14 days!

I gotta go pack. And shop. And write notes to teachers. And lists for my in-laws. Excuse me while I try not to FREAK OUT here.

I'm goin' to China.

So excited! Yes, you are finally going to China!!!! I hear you on the flying on 9/11 thing, but I bet the airlines will be even more cautious on that day than any other. It's going to be just fine. So excited for you and can't wait to follow your journey to your baby girl.

hugs,
Jonni
