I can't believe it- this time tomorrow, we'll be on a flight to Toronto to connect to one going to Beijing! It is really, really happening. I'm still in a whirlwind of luggage and last minute preparations for the petsitter... but the good news is that we'll definitely be UNDER our 44 lb/person in-China baggage allowance (although several recent travellers told me that their luggage was not even weighed!). We'll also have a huge suitcase that is now filled with a case of cleft nursers for the SWI, and which will be empty after Tuesday. And you all know what that means - SHOPPING!!
It's early evening now in China as I write this. Daniel is probably getting ready for bed. I wonder if he has any idea of the life change that is in store for him in less than 4 days from now? I hope his nanny has been preparing him. I hope we're really prepared to deal with his grief.
Well, I've got a couple more things to pick up once I drop the kids off at their day camp. Better get a move-on.
I'm not sure how often I'll update this blog while we're away. I'll try from time-to-time. I've decided to do a password-protected site for our trip. If you want to follow that, feel free to leave a comment with your e-mail address and I'll try to send you the address and password from China.
