I got my TA yesterday and my consulate appointment date today. We leave on the 2nd or 3rd of January and return to the US on January 16th. I am waiting now for the quote from the travel agency my agency uses for ticket prices. Then we have to let them know by tomorrow if we accept the quote or if we will be making our own travel arrangements. Did any of you all make your own arrangements to get to China verses using your agency resources?? How did it go? My Mom wants to try and use their miles. Also I am not sure why we are going so late. It seems like a lot of people are leaving much sooner then us and some will be lucky enough to be home by Christmas.
Here is my packing process so far. Pictured below are the clothes I have for Abby. The list as follows : 2 pairs of overalls with matching shirts, 2 pairs of jeans with matching shirts, 4 two piece outfits (shirt and pants), 2 skirts with matching shirts, 2 sweat suits, 5 dresses, 2 sweaters, 1 hoodie, 7 pairs of PJ's, a one piece fleece (for outside), poncho with attached hood to wear over the fleece, 1 hat and pair of mittens, 2 blankets (1 flannel and one fluffy), 10 pairs of socks, and 10 onesies. Too Much??????
Here are some of the supplies I have collected for both Abby and I.
In other news, I also had my homestudy update today. Hopefully all went well and she will send me the draft tomorrow.
