I've read on a few blogs, that while folks were in China, they had difficulty posting to a "blogger" blog? I set up my "In China" blog aeons ago, which subsequently was "redecorated" into the Quilt Room... and gathering dust, whilst we wait to actually BE in China!
Anyway, the reason I ask is... I am in a dilemma... do I use my "free" China Room blog, or do I pay $75 and go to a "Journal hosting" mob, and send them emails from China, and not have the stress, whether blogger will work, plus get the added bonus of getting the journal on CD?
My other dilemma is (yes, this is all very pathetic, I know...if only these were my only "issues"?!!) - I've decided (I think) to leave the laptop at home, and use internet cafes or the hotel's business centre, to download my photos to my stick drives and blog - one less thing to carry, and my laptop is my "office" too, so it'd be devasting if it got lost or busted.
And here's yet another mindless worry, I've been thinking about... a baby carrier. Ages ago, I bought a "hip carrier" (we applied for a child up to 18 months, thinking our child will be a toddler, hence a hip carrier, not a front carrier) which I thought was just the best thing since sliced bread. Now I'm panicking that our child will be too small (kids have to be able to sit unsupported to use this carrier) ~ so now I'm lusting over a "Mei Tai" type carrier, but am worried I won't know how to get it on, or that she'll fall out, because the straps are tied, not in a buckle.
And, I hate to say it, I still think about her name... constantly! Is it better to choose a name, or wait til we see her and know her Chinese name?
Any thoughts on the above issues?
I hate it when T is flat out with work... I just sit around an obsess over ridiculous things!!! Our daughter is not ridiculous, it's just ridiculous, that I'm stressing about things that don't affect us now! I hope this all passes soon. It usually does.
Answer to yesterday's question: Yes! M did get her ears pierced... OOooo the drama of it all! I wish I had a video camera. After 12 months of her nagging, I had to convince / persuade her for nearly 10 mins, that it'd be ok, and wouldn't hurt (too much!).
