HELLO to everyone from lovely, wonderful, warm, sunny, and fabulous Florida!
We made it last night at about 10:45 into grannie's driveway. I won't lie - the driving was awful. My mom and I took turns but it was rough. At one point yesterday we were going to just stop and get a hotel room - but we kept going and going and going and going and going ... well, you get the picture ... but we are talking 22 hours on the road. It was HARD.
The kids, well, the kids were just AWESOME on the drive down. They didn't ask "are we there yet?" "how much longer?" or any questions like that. They barely whined (which they don't normally go 22 hours without whining that little at home LOL. I think though, they were all pretty tired and just didn't have the energy to complain much. But they were such good little travelers ... awww, I have such awesome kids.
Today we didn't do much. Unfortunately my little guy got sick! His fever is hovering around 101 to 102. He asked me today to take him to "daddy's house" which I assume means home since daddy isn't with us and that was all he could think to say? He mostly stayed attached to me all day, but we were able to go on a few walks and just sit outside in the nice warm wonderful weather.
I'd show you pictures, but I haven't taken any yet :x Not a single picture. I was so sure I'd take hundreds each day, but nope, today was a day for holding and cuddling little man and just trying to take care of him. Tomorrow we will venture out to Sanibel Island (assuming little man feels better otherwise all others will go without the two of us).
But really? The sun and warm weather is enough. I needed this. I just really needed this right now and it is making me feel so wonderful inside. Oh! I almost wish we lived down here so we would have this niceness all the time, but for real? I don't want to be here.
Anyway, I'm off to crash, but I needed to record a bit about the trip so far, so you all get to read it ;-)
