So, scratch that last post that I had just written for today about long waits/short waits, being #10 on the list..............................
We're going to China!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Still no consulate date yet, but we got our Travel Authorization giving us permission to go! Unless things are totally booked up at the consulate, I think we are in good shape for pre-CNY travel. We should find out shortly.
Of course, P has been in London all week for work (not exactly the best timing for a trip, but that's another story...). So, I was on the phone with him as he was getting ready to board the plan, telling him to have a safe trip, not get poisoned by airplane food, blah blah blah. We said goodbye, and AS SOON AS we got off the phone, our agency called our house saying we got TA! I immediately called P back to give him the news, and he had shut his phone off for the flight! So he missed the news by about 2 minutes! Now I have to sit and wait until late tonight to tell him the news. He has no idea what's waiting for him when he gets home!!!!
I am so excited! This is the very best Christmas present ever!!!!
