Man Down

Our plan for today was to clean the house and get a hotel for tonight and start driving early tomorrow morning...like 2 or 3 AM. This morning we decided that instead of staying here all day wasting the day away we are going to start driving and when we get tired we will get a hotel. That way we don't have to do the whole trip tomorrow. I love the sound of that, here is the only problem with that.....

We have a Man down! Kobe is sick!!!!

He started last night with a low grade fever and huge amounts of drooling. I knew he wasn't feeling good with how bad he was drooling. He told me his tongue hurt and refused to drink or eat anything. I gave him Children's Motrin and he started to feel better. He ate a little bit and drank.

Then he wakes up this morning with a fever of 101.8 and he is feeling miserable! I made an appointment with the doctor for him though before he even woke up. His appointment is at 11:20 this morning. I hope my little man starts to feel better, it is so hard to be sick on a long road trip!

Tyrique and Markus were so excited to go to school this morning. Their last day of school here in Virginia Beach!!! They have said good bye to all their friends that live here in the neighborhood and are ready to go. They have a half of day of school today, that's perfect since we want to take off early today.

Well, the house is packed up. The only thing the guys need to do today, is put the beds in the truck. I got some cleaning done last night and I need to finish the last of it right now. In other words I need to get my butt off this computer and get started!!! So Adios!!! Next time I write on my beloved blog it will be in another state on my way to my new home!!! Good bye Virginia, hello Illinois!

Just had a few minutes before my enchiladas come out of the oven (our Sunday after-church lunch). Just wanted you to know I popped in to see if you were up and running! Thinking of you! Hope you're having fun setting up house. You're mom's probably there now? Maybe?
