That which does not kill you....

...well you know the rest. This evening after my husband describes his day at work, casually mentions to me..ah honey, talked to the movers today and there is an issue with moving our belongings to China. Apparently, the movers require not only your passport, visa, home address, but also need the permanent residence card. After I stated the obvious, that we don't a permanent residence card, the answer was, " yea that might be a problem". So as calmly as I could muster my question, though rhetorical, was "What about the wine?" My husband assured me, that he will contact his colleagues up in Shanghai to assist us. The worst case scenario, we ship 750 pounds back home. I bet you all are wondering who will be the lucky one that gets the call asking to store our treasures? Heather, I understand you still have room in your condo? All I can say, is that I am happy that I packed Lulac in my suitcase. (Sylvia and Dad you would appreciate that comment)

As they say, have credit cards will shop..

On another note, Heather and Mike thanks for the drunk calls and update on Lollapalooza.

Oh no!! I hope you are able to get your belongings, or at least the wine!!! I've got an empty basement if you need to store anything and can always attempt to ship you wine. I promise the wine won't be in a box!! Have a great weekend!!

Mark, Tina; We don't remember large chunks of last night...we have spent the day on the couch recovering. Man, it was a good time! I do remember our phone conversation, we had just blown the scene and we were looking for cab - we never found one. Imagine that....

We wished you were there though...

Heather says that we have plenty of room to store your stuff - however, dont be surprised if the wine mysteriously disappears. We have had this problem here and can find no rational explaination for it. Maybe Heather's place is haunted by an alcoholic poltergeist...I dont know..

Let us know if we can help.
