China: Day One

I've kind of been in denial about this whole Evan going to China again thing. I went to bed last night not even really thinking about Evan leaving this morning. Maybe it's a good thing that this trip was such short notice because I didn't have time to really get myself worked up about it. He got up at 3:30 this morning to go pick up a fellow traveler in Prairie du Sac and I spoke to him as he was waiting at his terminal at O'Hare to board his 14 hour, 21 minute flight. I let him borrow my Kindle....aren't I nice? :) So, here we are without Daddy on Day One of the ten day trip. Evan said to me over and over, "I'll be back before you know it." I sure hope he's right.

Oh, and did I mention what Evan left behind when he walked out the door this morning? A toilet that doesn't flush!! Yesterday I went to Target to get Micah a humidifier for his room because Isaiah gave him his cold (yup....both boys are sick!) and it came with styrofoam packing. Isaiah was having a ball playing with it and somehow ( I wonder.....) a chunk of it ended up in the toilet. Well, Evan used the facilties and saw a flash of white in the water and assumed it was toilet paper. It wasn't until he had already flushed and it was too late that he realized what it was and now the toilet is plugged. Not sure what I'm going to do about that, but I'll figure something out.

In the meantime, I am still trying to plan outings and/or playdates for next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Any takers??
