Wow! I don't know were to start with my weekend. Friday was a busy one, I worked my cleaning job in the morning, the route in the afternoon, and my daughter had her first Mary Kay party Friday evening. I took one of my routes off so I could clean my house and make cookies and brownies for the party. She had 8 women show up; I thought that was pretty good for her first party. One of the young women signed up to have a party at her house so that was very good for my daughter. My daughter used me as her model; she made me up so the other ladies could see how to apply their makeup. I don't want to brag but I loved the makeup she put on me so much I bought it. I told her she has to show me how to apply the makeup the way she did. That just about covers my Friday evening; except for the fact I had to run the twins to a birthday party before the Mary Kay party started. I made it through the evening with a few hours of sleep before having to start the next day.
I left to go to my AA News motor route at 2:30 a.m. I returned home around 8:15 a.m. just enough time to throw myself together to make it to our Awana Grand Prix by 9:00 a.m. check in. The races went great! I won first place in the Chums/Guard group. I feel a little badly now that they moved my car down, instead of racing in the open division. I am sure one of the girls would have like that first place trophy. Oh well, it didn't work out that way. Bo won first place in the Pals/Pioneer division better the record in time at our church. His car ran a 3.35, my car ran a 3.42. Bo won over all for bragging rights.
I already blogged about the National Anthem, what I didn't post was me humming my started note until it was my turn to sing. People were talking to me and then they had a little Gospel message for the children before it was my turn to sing. I left during the Gospel message so I could find my starting note. I didn't want to start too high or to low. Anyway, I got through that without to much pain. : )
I did my normal Saturday cleaning and getting my advances.
Sunday we didn't go to church, Jimmy came home from his friend’s house on Saturday with a fever and a sore throat, Bo had a fever and soar throat on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and this morning. I took him to the doctors this morning to make sure it was Strep. It is Hand-foot-and-mouth disease.
Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is a mild but highly contagious viral infection common in preschool children. Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is characterized by sores in the mouth and a rash on the hands and feet. It spreads from person to person, usually through unwashed hands or contaminated surfaces. The most common cause of hand-foot-and-mouth disease is coxsackievirus infection.
Hand-foot-and-mouth disease isn't related to foot-and-mouth disease (sometimes called hoof-and-mouth disease), which is a highly infectious viral disease found in farm animals. You can't contract hand-foot-and-mouth disease from pets or other animals, and you can't transmit it to them.
There's no specific treatment for hand-foot-and-mouth disease.
We didn't go to church yesterday due to everyone being sick.
This week I am not as busy as my life has been. Tonight is a free night; I am going to start dinner soon and do laundry this evening.
I love it when life slows down.
