Our visa application was dropped off last Tuesday at the consulate. They have 10 business days to process it and issue the most valuable Article 5. The pick-up date should be next Tuesday, August 16 - one day after my birthday. I can't think of a better 31st birthday present than to receive the Article 5 on time!

There's really nothing else to report. We still have not done anything to Meili's room. It's still filled with random junk, including the giant wreath that I purchased for 90% off after last year's Christmas. Her crib is sitting in pieces in her room. It'll get done before we travel. If not, then we'll worry about it when we get home.
