On the Road Again

Okay, so here is the post I initially set out to write this morning before I was distracted by the excitement of 100 posts!  Here goes!

Today is the big day!  LADY GAGA!  But, as with many things here in Drosche Land, the day is not without adventure!  Last night around 2:00 Jack woke up throwing up, and with a fever.  Great right!  As bummed as Amy and I were with the possible implications of this on our plans, we were too exhausted to deal with it at that hour.  So the bed was stripped, laundry started, and everyone re-tucked back in.  Well, that lasted for about 5 minutes before he was calling us again.  Luckily there was no mess involved with this, just a sickly whiny kiddo.  So both boys (and their own pillows because they hog) came to our bed.  On a side note, 4 regular-sized pillows DO NOT fit on a king-sized bed.  If you attempt this, make sure you are on the inside 2!  Well, 2:30 - 4:30 Jack tossed and turned and Braeden proceeded to attempt to sleep horizontally.  I may have dozed a bit, Amy not so much since she was closest to Jack.  So, trying to help her get some sleep, I took the boys back to their bedroom and laid in Jack's bed with him.  Where again he tossed and turned until he finally fell asleep about 5:15.

So, I tip-toed out to call my mom since she was supposed to pick the boys up from school this afternoon and watch them overnight.  Well, since she just took vacation last week while we were in Ft. Worth she, understandably, could not take more time off.  Another wrench.  So, tired and wondering what to do I decided to get a few minutes of sleep and curled up on a chair in the loft where I dozed until Jack woke up at 6:00.  Yes, that's right, even on very little sleep and sick they still wake up at the butt-crack of dawn!  Well, after being awake for a bit he was fever-free and running around playing!  Oh the joyous frustrations of kids!

Well, we were still in a pickle!  We couldn't take him to school since he hadn't been fever-free for 24 hours.  Plus, even if we could have we would have been out of town so there would not have been anyone to come and get him if he were to be sent home.  Luckily we came up with a plan.  We are going to push back our leaving time to hang out at home for a bit and monitor him.  Then, we will take him to Amy's mom's house where Adam will watch the boys until her mom comes home.  They will then spend the night there instead.  Throw in some anti-nausea medicine and Tylenol/Motrin as needed and Lady Gaga here we come!

So, all's well that ends well.  Needless to say, I am super excited about tonight!  I cannot wait to see Lady Gaga!  This is all thanks, of course, to Amy.  For the tickets, hotel, and crisis management!  I would be lost without her.  She is AWESOME!  Hopefully I will be able to get some good pics with my iPhone and post them here!  Woo hoo!  Well, time to shower, pack, and down a few extra cups of coffee to offset the lack of sleep!  Then we are on our way!  Woo hoo!

All is well, Lady Gaga/Dallas bound, in Drosche Land.
