I started feeling sick yesterday. I can tell when I'm coming down with something because my back, neck, and hands start to ache. By last night I was running a fever. The thought of driving all the way home while sick did not appeal.
Dad decided to take the rest of the week off and drive down with us. He got a good deal on a one-way plane ticket home. We haven't been able to go on a road trip together for a long time so it should be fun.
The fever broke in the middle of the night and I'm feeling better today.
