Strep Throat - Oh the Pain!!

We went to go look at the 20 acres on Saturday. It was so beautiful. The land was almost completely covered with briars and such, and we had to weave our way through the "forest" Because that is pretty much what it was - a forest. It was hilly and had a few cliffs. There is a tiny creek that runs on the property, plus a bigger stream. Close to the stream was an area mostly made of rocks covered with lichens and moss. There was also a little cave where the stream was coming out of. I really hope that we can get it. The owner is planning on calling next week to see if we can get a road going into the property, so I guess I don't want to get my hopes up too much, but we loved it.
As I predicted, I felt much worse on Saturday. So going and hiking up and down on 20 acres was probably not the best thing for me. My throat was killing me, and since my nose was stopped up, and I have been extremely out of shape due to all the sicknesses I seem to attract. I was drugged up on Dayquil, ibuprofen, and more. I woke up this morning and felt even worse. I don't think my throat hurt this bad when I had mono.
Aaron took Madelyn and Natalie to class at church this morning and came home before worship so that I could go to the walkin clinic 25 miles from here. There were more cars there than I have ever seen and there were no chairs left after I sat down. I was there for 2 hours before they saw me, and there was only one doctor - one nurse. I know they were doing the best they can, but whew, when you feel awful, the last thing you want to do is sit around in a doctor's office. Anyway, I have strep now too.
Aaron took all 3 girls to church tonight and since we teach the Sunday night kids class of k - 6th graders, he handled it on his own. He had 17 kids. I am so proud of him. They finished watching a movie about Joseph that we had started last week, then he went over some questions that he had come up with.
Not much more news. Just hoping that the antibiotics will kick in fast and kill the pain in my throat.

That is exciting about the land. I would love it if you guys could get it. I know it is a dream of both of yours. So sorry everyone has been sick. I think it is so much worse if mom is sick. I am really hoping you feel better soon, but glad you got antibiotics. I'll be interested to hear about the land.
