The Good: Our air shipment arrived yesterday! I cracked open those four boxes and pouring out came a small selection of toys, a Pack n Play, the regular carseats, and many packages of diapers. We all spent the afternoon smiling and the floor was a minefield of toys. Today, all the girls wanted to play with were the empty cardboard boxes. And even though there are two big (and identical) ones, they wanted to play with the EXACT same cardboard box. As an aside, if I understood what Chris was explaining from the shipment tracking website, the darned boxes didn't even leave BKK until July 2. They were packed and at the shipping company's warehouse on June 17, so why they had a two week holiday in BKK, I do not know.
The Bad: I woke up yesterday morning feeling like the Walking Dead. At the SOS Clinic, I explained my symptoms to the first doctor thusly: very painful breast, pain extending to my armpit, and achy back and neck. He had me do a handful of stretches for him and decided that I either had lifted something too heavy for me or else I was getting a cold! Seriously? And then he recommended that I get a second opinion. I repeated my symptoms nearly verbatim to Doc No. 2, and she immediately focused on the site of my angry red inflammation and gave me the verdict: mastitis. Feeling much better today, thankfully. Yesterday would have sucked so much more than it did if Chris's mom hadn't been here to hang out with my girls and make them delicious macaroni and cheese for lunch.
The Unexpected: Our sea shipment (otherwise known as "all our worldly possessions" arrived in port in Saigon today. Chris thinks that there is a distinct possibility that we'll receive the shipment before the end of the week and we'll be spending the weekend getting ready to move into the house. As I put Sadie down for her nap today, I was really excited about getting back to our normal routine with the comfy POANG chair, crib aquarium, and patting her down in her crib.
