I am so very proud to bring you----
Wait for it-----
Wait for it!!!

Fly from our city to Chicago at 7 freakin AM. Ouch. Who is going to take us to the airport at that hour? No one. Will have to get a cab.
Fly from Chicago to Hong Kong. 15 hour flight. I'm either thrilled I will have 15 hours to do nothing whatsoever or freaked out that I have 15 hours to do nothing whatsoever.
Arrive in Hong Kong at 345pm the next day. Go to hotel. SLEEP!!!
Saturday June 23rd
Tour Hong Kong with our friends who live there. Go back to hotel. SLEEP. Look how much I am looking forward to sleeping. All caps. I REALLY like to sleep. I've got drugs for that. No kids? I can take drugs to help me sleep. I will sleep!

Fly from Hong Kong to Nanchang, our child's province. Check into the hotel. Not sure which one yet, I'll update this when I know. Hang out. Swim. SLEEP.
Monday June 25th
I'm a Gotcha Day sayer. So it will be known by us as Gotcha Day. Metcha sounds too much like the last name of someone I used to know and didn't like. Family day? Everyday is family day in this house. Gotcha it is!
Not sure on times or location- will update that later.
**** I have just learned that Sunday might be Gotcha Day! Again, I'll update when I know more.*****************
