Well, I just put my call into my agency and I was told that my girl is out sick. My head almost came off my shoulders. I told the women who answered the phone that I didn't care how she did it but I wanted to know today if my CA was in. I mean, give me a break, I have my TA a week and I am really pissed off right now. I just got a call back and she said that she checked the e-mails and nothing was there. So that means I have to wait until Monday now to hear when I can leave. I am sure that most of the CA dates are full so that means I have to wait until March. What a freakin' nightmare. I really am just going to freak out now. I have been up since 4:30 am and I am red hot right now. I could boil an egg in my hand, that's how on fire I am. But, what do they care. This does not affect their life in any way, shape or form. Don't get me wrong, I love my girl that I deal with at my agency, but if she would have listened to me on Wed. I would know right now when I was leaving. I was hoping for Jan. 25th but I can kiss that date goodbye. Let hope Feb. 1st is the charm.

I think I should stop now, because if I don't I know I will say something that is not proper. Until Monday (I hope)

Oh Lisa.....I can feel your tension through your words. I can't believe your agency is taking this long for your CA. Another Chenzhou mom from my agency just got TA yesterday.....she already has her travel dates (she leaves after CNY).Your agency NEEDS to get on the ball!!!!!

Oh, I can't believe this is happening. I'm praying for Feb.1st for you. This must be an even worse wait than the wait for TA~ so close, but yet so far.

Hang in there. This last leg before you actually board a plane for China is so difficult. So close, and yet... Deep breath. You can do it.

Don't worry too much. I had a similar situation and ended up making my own appt (with my agency's permission). The consulate staff told me that they usually don't have an issue squeezing in 1 family if they have to. I hope it comes through soon.

Lisa~ I am at a loss for words here. I don't understand why this would have happened. I am thinking of you and hope to hear that you have your CA on Monday and no later! I found the arranging of the travel time to be very stressful.
