We’re down to the wire. And, shame on me, I’m a bit of a last-minute girl.
Our visas were completed last week, but due to the POA (power of attorney) that must go to China with me, I had the courier wait to send them all together. All set to arrive Tuesday. Plenty of time, right?
Turns out, there was a hiccup with our POA. Thankfully the couriers we used (Assistant Stork) know exactly what they’re doing and they were able to get the docs corrected and processed the next day.
So that would have our travel documents arriving today, right?
Wrong. I just found out that our little FedEx envelope happened to be on a plane that arrived a bit late last night. And didn’t make it’s *connection* in time. So our visas and POA won’t be arriving today. They’ll be arriving tomorrow.
I certainly hope (and pray!) so.
And, as an aside, please add my dumb tooth to your prayers as well. I had a filling re-filled a month ago and since then, chewing has been ridiculously painful.
So I went back to the dentist a second time and he filed it down a bit, hoping that would fix the problem.
So I went back today upon further inspection, it turns out that I now have a crack in my tooth. And I need a crown.
Did I mention that I have a real fear of dental work? Well, I do. And it’s pretty ugly.
All going back to a painful childhood incident involving a cavity, a drill, an idiot dentist and a shot of novacaine placed on the wrong side of my mouth.
Prayers would be most appreciated.
