5 days

China is getting close close close. I was supposed to pack today but got caught up with watching Super Bowl commercials (is it me or were most of them disappointing this year?) and eating yummy hot wings and other things, that I completely lost track of time. I will have to pack a little bit each day if I’m gonna be ready for our 10 day trip!

Wouldn’t you know it, that the worst winter storm in decades has hit southern China this past week. Millions of workers stranded as they were trying to get home for Lunar New Year. The different news reports we read spoke of Guangzhou which is where we fly into. Worried naturally. The many that are stranded are at train stations, but quite a lot at airports too. We won’t be taking the trains, but there is a flight or two that we will need to take locally while over there. My mom doesn’t seem too worried about it. Said that my dad has a friend that lives out there and that things are fine. If no one hears from me in a few weeks, someone please come to China and look for me!! 😛

How about the game today? Neither me and Jason are football fans but we each decided to pick a team to root for. Not knowing a thing, I said I’ll pick the Giants. Then he told me that the Patriots were undefeated the whole season. Not anymore!!! How sad was that? To go undefeated all season only to be beaten at THE game of the year. I should have made a bet. Would have won big. Hehehe.
