We’re headed home six days early. Without going into major details, we had a great trip out, Yellowstone was awesome and (as usual) the kids were SUPER DUPER WELL-BEHAVED in the car.
And then all heck broke loose.
Like, We got to Jackson Hole on Sunday Afternoon and I had a fever of 104. And the closest Urgent Care place was 2 hours away. And I had an ear infection and tonsilitis and could’t swallow. And we had to go over a mountain over 10000 feet high (more ear pain) to get to our family’s home in Utah (more ear pain). And we got to Utah and Bugaboo suddenly had massive anxiety attacks and screamed uncontrollable for two days straight. And then Bugaboo didn’t poo or pee for a few days and then had massive trots for an entire day. And I lost his shoes in Park City. And my cell phone. And basically every time we tried to do ANYTHING with him he refused to get out of the car and would not go in the house.
Yeah. I think we shoulda planned this one better. Don’t get me wrong, we do NOT regret doing this at all. We appreciate the time we had with DH’s sister and her family. In fact, we’ve had a lovely time. It’s just that Bugaboo is having a ton of issues and we can’t address them 2100 miles away from home. So home we must go.
See y’all soon. I’ve got some fun stories to tell.
