Things never go as planned

Sometimes things just never go as planned for us. We had went to a birthday party for Rodgers dad this afternoon after I finally figured out how to set our home phone to forward calls to my cell. Or I would have stayed here to take the call from the U-haul company confirming our U-haul rental truck for tomorrow. We have paid for that feature on our phone for probably 20 years and this is the first time we have used it. Thank goodness for internet, cause I had to google how to make the dang feature work. Then we just got started having dinner and Jason was sick with sinus and chest congestion stuff. Rodger has it too and I had already made him a doc appointment for Sunday morning. Then I called an made one for Jason as well. Shortly thereafter Jason seemed much worse. He said he could not breathe. So I took him on to the ER and the gave em a breathing treatment, steroids, antibiotics and an inhaler. He is doing better, at least he can get air in now. Rodger still goes to the doc in the morning for his congestion. We really don't need him ill as we get ready to head out to Nevada with a U-haul truck. I am usually the one that gets this allergy induced bronchitis. I guess after this trip is over I will be the one that crashes and burns. But any who, after all the online hassle of reserving this damn truck and they tell me online that someone from U-haul will call me by 6pm today with the location of the truck. I get home and find I have an email telling me the truck pickup location is in Lexington. Which really pisses me off because we cant pick the truck up till noon tomorrow and then load it in Richmond then back home to get ready to leave on Monday. That could actually mean extra miles for me to pay for. I think I am going to insist on a discount or a lot of free mileage. After our house sitters get here Monday morning we will be heading out to Elko Nevada. So next week I will be blogging from the road again. Hopefully by means of pictures I can take all of you along with me on this trip as well. Our route will be across I-64 west to I-80 all the way to Nevada. I have looked at the weather and it is gonna be tricky trying to dress for the weather changes across the country. So off to bed to rest and take Rodger to doc in the morning and off the get a truck an load up. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

It's been a really bad year for allergies. Not sure why, but this year I have fought them from Spring on! I usually drop them come Summer, but they are still buggin' me!

Hope everyone is feeling better! Nothing worse than being on the road sick!!
