It's 8 pm, I'm alone in the house and Greg, Jeff and John are somewhere between Shanghai (Pudong airport actually) and Suzhou!! How am I supposed to get my work done? Mystery to me! I tried texting John from school, then calling when classes wrapped up.... only to discover his forgotten cell phone in the office once I finally got home:-)  The Air Canada website says their flight arrived - just an hour late - so I'm trusting all went well AND that I don't have to wait too too much longer before they are all here.  

After a pile of emails and 'please don't forget' memos, John sent Greg and Jeff a perfect counter-mother email.  The subject line reads 'Cheap beer and cheap explosives.'  It was definitely a male to male email.  With John's permission, I include the email here:
Hello Greg and Jeff
This place is freaking paradise. Beer is 40 cents a bottle at the corner store, a pack of 500 firecrackers goes for $1.50, you can spit and burp whenever and wherever you want, you don't have to wear a helmet, there are no rules of the road you just do whatever the hell you want and nobody can drive on the sidewalk if you want to, and you get to feel like you are famous cause everyone is staring at you. Looking forward to having you guys over so you can enjoy the good life too.
See you in Shanghai soon

 Tomorrow is my last day of work before the National Holiday.  John and the boys will tackle finding a few cheap bikes and then they are picking up a cake special ordered for our school secretary, Flora, who has been hanging out with us a lot lately.  It's Flora's 29th birthday in a few days, and since she's heading home for the Holiday (central China) the teachers are all getting together after classes tomorrow to send her off properly.  (I will be a wee bit late as the principal and I are having a parent meeting, at our request, with the mom of a student who continues to fail to show up!)

EEEEEEE..... they are here:-)  Mommy is very happy!!!!!
WIll have stories and pictures to share soon!
love kate
