Good morning, afternoon and evening (depending on when you are reading this latest entry). Unfortunately, it will be a short entry as I am suffering from "I-take-on-too-much-sometimes-and-get-stressed-out-and-stay-up-too-late-like-when-I-was-in-college-itis" :)

Get all of that?

I have a cold :( I am feeling overwhelmed with our first show one week from Tuesday and have been staying up too late for my own good. Thus, after this blog I am hittin' the hay (as my beloved Father always says).

Today was another run through of the show but I missed the morning rehearsal due to a needed visit to the clinic for a throat culture. No worries, no worries. I don't have strep throat! :) My host sister did last week and I was worried that I might have caught it too. However, the on-call doctor assured me that my throat wasn't even swollen or red. While I felt a bit foolish, I am happy beyond belief that I didn't have strep throat! I was given a prescription for allergies though! 

After lunch we ran through the show. I played "Lana Polana" again and sang "Oye El Boom" and "Carrickfergus". Everything went fine but I didn't feel the greatest about how I did (my nose is plugged up and it is hard to sing that way!). Oh well. Tomorrow is another day and I will treat it as such.

After a delicious meal, I went for a run around a nearby pond. I know, I know; not the smartest move for a girl that might have allergies but I felt so much better once I was active. My medications seem to be kicking in and I don't feel nearly as drowsy or stuffed up :)

I'm getting very excited to see my wonderful, amazing parents next week! 

Thank you, thank you to everyone who has sent mail and/or words of encouragement throughout my journey so far! I hope you all know that it is greatly appreciated and definitely brightens my day! I love you all :)

Take care and have a great morning/afternoon/evening!
