The gchat came as I was in the middle of a particularly grueling meeting at work.
John: When do you want to go to China?! [Date 1] or [Date 2]?
Me: OMG OMG OMG WHAT?!
John: Travel Approval came today!
You all. We are going to meet Beatrix Nan Yu in a month.
(Needless to say, it was really, really hard to pay attention to the remaining 90 minutes of that meeting.)
In possibly related news, I am freaking right the hell out.
Yes, I am incredibly excited and cannot wait. But when I take a step back and think about all of the stuff that needs to be done before we go (work, class, life, travel prep)... WHOA. Wish me luck (and a clone). I think I'm going to need it.
