WE'RE GOING TO CHINA

We received our TA today. Tentative date of departure is still May 22 with return on June 4. YIPPEE!!!! We should know in definite time line in the next couple of days and then we can make our reservations and get that out of the way. Now if we could just get our visas we would be set.

I am on spring break all by myself this week. So far I have gone to the laundromat to wash our comforter (which was trapped in the washer for 30 minutes because the latch would not open after it was finished washing. The delay was okay though because there was a couple doing their laundry who was using EVERY SINGLE DRYER in the place). Then I went to Wal-mart and got the majority of the things that we still needed for our packing list (finally bought diapers and formula). So right now I have a laundry basket full of stuff plus 5 Wal-Mart bags full of stuff.

While at Wally World, I also bought hair color. I usually get dark blond color with lighter blond highlights, but today I decided to go a little crazy and get red. I just finished it up and think it looks pretty good. I think it looks different, but we'll see if David notices when he gets home. (I never realized how hard it is to take a picture of yourself. I did a little touch up with photoshop, but left the double chin and under eye circles for your viewing pleasure)

Later I'll post some pictures of all of the stuff that needs to be packed

Cool red color!
I can't believe you're leaving in less than a month, wow...

(By the way, I switched to my summer bag this week -- the one you made -- and the first day I was out with it someone passed me on the way into the drugstore and said "ooo, nice bag!!" :-) )
