We started our Tech Week on Sunday the 21st and it hasn't stopped since. Sundays rehearsal was a long one and a scary one. It was the first tech run-through so we threw in lights, sound, sets, etc. and it threw everyone off. We were there from 1:30-8:30 and it wore me out!
Monday we were back at rehearsal in the afternoon and it was a better one. The kids settled down into their roles and started performing.
Tuesdays rehearsal was even better. But by Tuesday morning Sarah was really sick. I thought she had strep and let her go home from Monday's rehearsal early but a trip to the doctor revealed bronchial infection instead. Yeah, isn't that great? She plays Maleficent and has two shows on Saturday so we got her a shot and antibiotics. She was able to do Tuesdays run-through but just barely.
By the time we got home Tuesday night I was on my sick bed. I felt horrible and didn't care who knew it! Wednesday morning had me waking up with a high fever, sore throat, achy joints, stuffy nose, and a cough. I could barely move for the aches and pains. And it only got worse throughout the day.
By this morning I had had enough and called for meds. They called out steroids and a zpack for me. I took all 6 steroid pills at one time and went back to bed. Thankfully I was feeling a little better by the time we needed to be at Call Time. I did make-up and helped get kids ready for the show.
Tonight's performance went well. There were a few rough spots but the kids did a really good job. They had fun and looked great. We have three more performances between Friday and Saturday with our two kiddos performing in both shows on Saturday.
I am tired. Super tired. I am ready for this week to be over and to slow down a little. At least before the summer schedule begins!
