Well in case you are on the countdown with us, we officially are down to 6 days!
6 days to go, before we board a plane at the weeee hours of the morning to fly to the other side of the world where a perfectly wonderful stranger will hand me our daughter.
We had our travel meeting this morning and as reluctant as I've been to really fully believe that we are allowed to travel, with so many others being told that they can not travel, I am starting to believe it *might* really happen. I'm terrified that China will change their mind and we will be left waiting, yet again. Somebody in our group did have their trip cancelled 2 days ago due to a Provincial decision and I am positive that she is devastated. My heart breaks for her and the others that have not rec'd their TA's. This is just all so crazy.
So I really thought I was rockin & rollin on the packing. I have Emerson all packed and really think I did a fabulous job. I have J all packed and was quite impressed with my packing with him and it is only now that I find out that the carry on can't weigh more than 11 lbs. How would anyone pack COO with the 11 lb weight limit? Do they really check this? Gracious. I'm open to suitcase suggestions for carry on. I haven't even packed for me yet! Granted my clothes are lighter than J's, but 11 lbs???? No way.
I only packed 4 pair of shorts and 8 t-shirts for him. Nothing fancy, just casual jas0n wear. I figured it would be all hot and sweaty and he would want to change his shirt for dinner. So we would only have to do laundry every 4 days, but I'm thinking he's just going to have to wear the same stinky shirt all day.
I keep hearing June Car*ter Cash singing, "Time's A Wastin'" in my ear. I've got to get our paperwork in order and once again, we need MORE passport photos. I swear, they seem to disappear. This will be the 3rd or 4th time we've actually had them taken and I seem to always be short by 2.
Tonight we have a business dinner and though J needs to work on Saturday, I'm hoping to hitch a boat ride out for some island time. Hope ya'll have a fab~U~lous weekend!
We HAVE 6 DAYS TO GO!!!!!!
