Welcome to Quarantine, post one

It all started with a phone call. Just a little phone call. A situation had arisen that the authorities needed to discuss with us.
It ends with us as the Hyatt’s most loyal customers ever.

To make a long story short, mostly because tomorrow I’ll have acres of time to tell you more than you want to know about it, we’re quarantined in China. The people seated behind us on the plane have the flu. As in, really have it, not have symptoms. For now–unless one of our throat cultures tests positive–we’re staying here, eating room service and watching bootleg dvds, until Wednesday. Probably. Things change on a dime.
3 adults, 3 kids, three rooms…think of it as Quarantine, the reality show. Maybe we’ll take videos.

    WHAT!?! Even if none of you show signs of illness, you’re stuck there til Wed?! Talk about togetherness! In a way it’s great family bonding time before Rory throws it all for a loop. :)

    What a story you’ll have to tell about your adoption trip. Hang in there,

    That is CRAZY! I wish I could send Kate to you via email so she could entertain Lily for a bit. Good luck and we’ll be thinking of you. So I guess this swine flu virus is real…
