Hack, hack, cough, cough

Well I was right about my last post. Thursday night or early Friday morning Evan tossed his cookies just the once leaving mom a fun surprise to find in the morning. At least this time he did it over the side of his bed so he did not sleep in it all night like he did once. I can't get him to come and tell us when he barfs in the middle of the night, he just rolls over and goes back to sleep.

I had a feeling he would be ok all day but made him stay home so that I did my due diligence in regards to infection control. He was not happy to be stuck at home while Harry got to go to school and visit a fire station.

I have been hit by an annoying cold. I wake up in the morning with a massively dry mouth because I was not able to breathe from my nose and was mouth breathing all night. I also loose my voice at odd times and am coughing like a 10 pack a day smoker. I am really grumpy when I am sick.

I got a bit of a surprise this morning. I was called to be the second councilor in the primary presidency. After we got the infamous general "so and so would like to meet with you" call any LDS person knows so well my husband and I threw out theories about what was going on. We were hoping for releases so that we could skip church guilt free, but Heavenly Father had other ideas apparently. We are moving this summer so I was kind of shocked that I got such a weighty calling.

Get well soon! I was second counselor for Primary for several years and loved it. It was a huge change from being Gospel Doctine Teacher for 8 years though!! You will do a great job!

Hope you're feeling better by now! Have fun with your calling-I think that's one of the best ones. :)

You'll be wonderful!

I served in the Primary Presidency and it was tough for me. The reason? I hated teaching sharing time. Everything else was fine!

Hoping you made it through your cold OK with no icky complications.
Served as a counselor in Primary several times. Personally, I think it's more fun to be a counselor than the President. The hard thing about doing Sharing Time (for me) was dreaming up what to do. There are some good books and even websites out there to help you. Every calling has it's challenges, but learned some years ago (from a wise bishop) that the best thing to do is find the fun part.
