We are also on our own spring break trip, but first I needed to stop off at the hospital to pick up my new work schedule. I needed to find out if I was scheduled to work while I was in LA because though I put my vacation time in and the scheduler said – I got it! Don’t worry about it!, I have often had other days off I put in the system mis-scheduled. It was also a chance to introduce Jeremy and Edda to my coworkers. I’m a bit self conscious introducing Jeremy and Edda to my coworkers and Jeremy knew this and asked are you more self conscious about me or about Edda? It’s hard to say. I pass as younger and goofier without Jeremy at my side even though I make no effort to hide my real age or how seriously I take my responsibilities. And Edda, well, she’s Edda. I have told people at work that I have a special needs daughter, but it’s another matter to bring her to work. It was fine and lovely visit and I’m not scheduled to work on my vacation and Jeremy saw the negative pressure room and the Pyxis.
Edda tolerated the flights very well, she didn’t make a ton of noise and she didn’t kick the people in front of her. She managed her bowels well (we hope for no pooping on the plane because the airplane toilet stall is not made for two people). So bowel-ing happened on the ground in a large bathroom stall. Wonderful!
We are getting constant photo updates from Vince. They seem to be having fun. Beijing doesn’t seem super polluted or unbearably hot.
