Glass Hotel

We made it through our first full travel day! It is around 9:30pm and we are in our hotel in Hong Kong. My ankles look like they belong on the Michellin Man... I am so swollen from all the airplane rides... but we are HERE!!!!

Tomorrow morning we have to be at the airport at 7am for our next flight... THE flight... we leave for Changsha!!! WOOHOO....

I already spoke to Kim on Skype tonite. Tried to call mom, but got the answering machine! and Marla must not be near the computer... but this place is really nice... apparently it was just built a year ago. very fancy.. there is even a shopping mall downstairs!

Well, this has to be short because they charge for internet here and I only bought an hour to call people... Tomorrow I will hpefully be in the room at a reasonable hour and I will have LOTS of pictures to post!!!

Love all,

I am so glad you got to post even just a little!! You have been in the foremost of my mind since Monday!!! Here it is 4:50pm on Tuesday which means it's 5:50am there which means.....YOU WILL HOLD RACHEL FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 4 HOURS!!!!! OMG I can't believe it!! I know you can't either...I am wondering if you slept much, how you are feeling (overwhelmed I'm sure) and all that jazz!!! UGGHH I wish I was there to see the big moment!! It's sooooo amazing!!! Drink lots of water (NO ICE!!) haha and your ankles will go down.. Oh and I heard NOT to wear crocks or sandles on the plane, of course that won't help you now, but on the way back!! Okay...I will go but I WILL be checking this in a few hours and a few hours later and...well you get the picture!! Give her a big hug and kiss from a fellow ChenZhou mom!!!! CAN'T WAIT!!!!

She is the best reason to open my eyes every day! Currently living in SW Florida. I've also become a MAJOR Twilight junkie, so now I'm told I'm a TWI-MOM & I LOVE it!
