The Sick

It's my first Sunday with my new calling as 2nd counselor in the Primary Presidency, and I'm sick. I was fine yesterday, but had a little bit of a sore throat as I went to bed which got progressively worse and spread to my ears. In the meantime, I kept waking up throughout the night, so I can't tell if my headache is from lack of sleep or another symptom. Fun times.

We're also supposed to watch a little boy (13 months old?) today so his parents can have some time to themselves, and now it's all on Braden, because I don't want to get either of the kiddos sick. Well, I should say that we're waiting to talk to our friends to see what they want to do; we've left 2 messages already, so I don't know how that's going to go.

I feel pretty bad about missing church; I really need to observe, since I don't know what I'm doing, just looks bad to miss your first Sunday in a new calling, IMHO. Especially since I guess the peep who was in the calling right before me was a slacker.

But what can you do? Not much, except rest up and drink plenty of fluids. Oh, and don't drink OJ. I didn't even think about it, until I took a swallow just now to finish up a half gallon that was taking up space in the fridge...and I was like, Ow. Did I mention that I'm just a little bit sleep deprived? Bedtime for Bonzo. :)

Thanks! Yeah, you're right, it is a triple whammy. I've been trying to rest a lot, but it's hard when you're a mama.
