Bon Voyage?? NOT!

Tomorrow morning I leave for a 3 day business trip. Sigh. Of all the times to have to go, this just sucks donkey’s balls. Even thought it is unlikely that we will get our referral this week … there is a slim chance. And I do not want to hear about it stuck on a trade-show floor! Either way, I am going to be either thrilled or seriously bummed and I’d rather it be with my friends and family!

On the good news front I read somewhere that there is a good chance that the next batch will be mailed this week and that next months batch will likely be at the end of April (instead of beginning of May) as the CCAA prepares for the festival in May (I do not know what festival this is).

I'm pulling for you to receive your referral this time, Julie. I really hope that it does come through. Just think of the story you'll be able to tell Naomi when she's old enough.

Time will go much faster while you are away and busy, maybe. I'll keep my fingers crossed that referrals come the day after you return. :)

Hi,
Came across your blog and since I live in China, may I offer some insights on their holidays? Chinese people have three major holidays that they celebrate and during which China practically closes down! 1. Chinese New Year also called Spring festival - comes according to the lunar year. 2. 1st week of May is the workers holiday, you have labour day they have labour week!
3. 1st week of October when the celebrating the creation of the People's Republic of China.
If you live in China, forgett Christmas and Easter - these are the once that count!
Fingers crossed thought that your referal comes in soon!
Best wishes,
Lena
