I keep thinking I'll sit down and write a nice, thoughtful post about something else, but then we get more news! We received our case number from the National Visa Center, and according to the others in my group, our letter should arrive by email some time today!
I think that means we may get our paperwork dropped off at the US Consulate tomorrow, but it depends on when the letter comes. The drop off days are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday with a two-week turnaround, but with the time change, we may not make the Tuesday drop. Even so, I think if we make the Thursday drop, we will have our Article 5 before Chinese New Year.
I better work on the freezer today.
