First Night of VBS and I Am Sick!

I always help with VBS at my dad's church and this year is no exception. This year I am doing crafts with the kids. Last night was awesome but of course I forgot my camera. We made bean bag (rice) puppies from socks. They were really cute and all the hard work of that we did in preparing really paid off last night. The kids loved them. Tonight we will be tackling something a little harder and I think the kids will love them too. I will try to remember to take my camera so you can see picutres.

And today, I have no voice, which is not a good thing when you have to give directions to groups of rowdy children. They will just have to settle down and listen really close. My throat started hurting on Wednesday and by Friday I could not swallow at all. So off to the doctor (dragging 4 kids, no doubt). I just knew I would have strep but the test came back negative. I was diagnosed with non-strep tonsilitis. And boy does it hurt! I have been soothing my throat with chamomile tea and lots of strong coffee. I have used Chloraseptic and lozenges. Nothing seems to relieve the pain for very long. I have been taking an Antibiotic since Friday and the pain is better but now I have a really dry cough, my chest hurts and I have laryngitis. So hopefully, this will all be gone soon.
We have our church VBS next week and then my sister in law and her kids are coming. So I am going to be very busy. I just need to find a couple of days to rest in the midst of all the busy-ness.

How aweful! We have had and are just recovering from that nasty bug! Ibuprofen helps with the throat pain!
