Wow! This week went by so quickly. Last Friday I wrote about having such a great week. I think that because of that post the devil decided to try to steal my joy this week. However, I didn’t let him.
Sure, having the worst sore throat of my life isn’t exactly what I would call starting the week out on a positive note. Being diagnosed on Tuesday with strep throat wasn’t ideal either. But, I can still come up with some positives.
Because I took extra vitamin D, probiotics, vitamin C, and tried to get more rest I was still able to take care of my family. I cooked all of the meals, did the laundry and even still taught preschool.
When I woke up Sunday morning I had a sore throat. I thought it would go away, though. Monday, it was even more sore, but I had no other symptoms so I still taught preschool that morning. I took a nap and went to bed early, but by 3:30 a.m. Tuesday I was almost in tears. It could barely swallow and I was miserable. I headed to the clinic at 8:00 a.m. Tuesday morning assuming I had tonsillitis. I was wrong. It was strep.
Thanks to some antibiotics, extra rest and keeping up with my supplements I am feeling much better. My throat has hurt less each day. I am so thankful that I was able to still function in spite of the diagnosis. God is good.
We did still have some good times this week in spite of my sickness.
Joshua lost his first tooth and acted like such a big boy. I am so glad because I thought he might want it put back in. You see, a few months ago I cut his hair. Later he decided he didn’t like it and wanted me to put his hair back on. 🙂
Our garden is growing.
Check out those onions.
The beans are showing promise, too.
Lastly, I just have to share how
lazy fun my husband is. Instead of getting the ladder to clean the maple seed helicopters out of our gutters he thought he had a better idea. So, trying to be a good wife, I did what he asked.
I got on his shoulders and scooped the helicopters from our gutters. I think he paid for it later. Oh, how I wish I had a picture of that. 🙂
