Almost Christmas

It's been a while since I posted last, mainly because I have not had much to post. We are still waiting for our LOA, which is going on 50 days now...which is normal. I just want it yesterday ;) We finally got a chance to speak with our agency and get an "update". Which really wasn't an update at all, just an excuse to talk to them and make sure we are doing everything we can to make things happen as quick as possible. So, we are filling out and sending in more paperwork that usually is done after LOA, but they said we could do now. It will probably only save a few days at most but it's worth it to me.
We're heading back to Chicago for Christmas and it will be great to see friends and family, although I could pretty much fast forward the next few months and be ok with it. Not a great attitude, I admit, but I really just want to go get XJ. We're hoping for the LOA to come before January 1, but most likely just after the new year. Our friends have generously given us use of some upgrades on American Airlines to China...if we can leave by the end of Feb. I might just travel early to take advantage of that!! Well, merry Christmas to all!
