Yesterday Amy took our 12 documents for Houston to the post office and sent them off for the final authentication. We've been worrying about the return of my birth certificate which we sent to the U.S. Department of State for authentication. Well, yesterday we had a attempted delivery note in the mailbox. Today I was home when the postman came and she had the letter, my birth certificate authenticated by a lady who signed Condi Rice's name and then her own name to the document. Amy went back to the post office today and sent this document off to the Chinese consulate in Washington, DC.
BTW - Why was I home for the mailman? I left work after an hour today and got an appointment with the doctor to find out I very positively have strep throat. Amy was off at lunch with a coworker/friend and her 3 kids for a play date. I get to have to take tomorrow off to rest and enjoy my antibiotics.
So anyway, we're another big step closer!
