We're leaving tomorrow! I can't believe it's finally time!!! Mike and I spent a long time packing last night. He brought what felt like the heaviest suitcase to UPS to weigh and it was 27 pounds - plenty of room left!!! Looks like JJ wants to come with us. I'm psyched Lynn is able to join us for part of our trip. She'll be meeting us in Hong Kong. We get to finally see Jessica on Monday. No more time to write - gotta finish getting ready.

Counting down
The countdown is on and of course I get sick. Well, at least it's now and not 2 weeks from now when we'll be traveling. I've rearranged my facial, eyebrow waxing and hair appointments. I didn't think they'd send us at the end of February so when I made all my appointments, I thought I'd have plenty of time. Next week is going to be super busy. I set up a time at Make and Take Kitchen so I could assemble some meals to have frozen when we get back. I called and let our credit card company know we'd be traveling as others have said it's good to do. Some people really don't think before they speak. The guy at the credit card company asked me if it were cheaper to "buy" a child in a foreign country that it is in the US. Sorry, I am not buying a child. I would have gotten into it more but I'm sick and my throat hurts so it's really difficult to talk. I just wanted to scream.

I found out from Lynn she may not be able to come with us which is really disappointing. I know she'd been really looking forward to it and I know Jason was also really looking forward to someone being there to hang with him. I haven't broken the news to him yet. I've been friends with Lynn for a long time (in deference to her, I won't say how long *S*) and I was looking forward to sharing this experience with her.
