Fourteen weeks and little things are beginning to change. Ying is slightly more mercurial in her moods, but I continue to take it all in stride.She is also beginning to show a small baby bump. Every now and then I listen at her tummy for a heartbeat, but it is still to faint to hear.
It looks like I might be transferred to another city soon. The latest information is that I will be transferred to Nantong. Unlike Kunshan, where I am currently the only foreign or resident teacher, Nantong has two other foreign teachers, so I will have somebody to talk to. I called one of the teachers and he and his wife said that the apartment provided was less than desirable, but since it is not that far from us, Ying and I are going to take a train to the city to see if what they say is true or if they are exaggerating. If they are right, we might consider using the allowance to rent another apartment in the area.
Right now all I can do is sit around and wait for the company to decide what I'm going to do and when we are going to make the move. I just want to get back to work and hopefully repeat the successes I had in Kunshan.
Until then I'm enjoying a short vacation.
