wait......and wait some more.
We were supposed to hear last week (at the earliest) what our first travel date was. What we heard was that they are backed up and swamped. This feels similiar to, though not quite as dramatic as, going past my due date with my first child. When you lose your date of expectation, then it feels like it might not ever happen. Ever. That's what it feels like, even though my head knows that it will happen eventually.
