Let me start off by saying, I'm so glad to be home! I've never worked so hard in my life. The drive wasn't too bad, finding our campus dorm hall was insane! Do don't let a teen try to say, oh I think we need to turn this way! We ended up circling our dorm hall three times. Once we got there and got unloaded, I had to turn into a nurse right away. I am the band's nurse, 70 little mini adults who think they are dying! Nah, but I had a couple of whiners. My job was to sign everyone in, take their medicine from them and log them into my journal. The kids were not allowed to keep their meds with them, unless it was a inhaler or epi pen. I would start my day at 5:45am, medicine rounds started at 6:15am, I had 6 kids in the morning, 2 at lunch, 5 at dinner that needed daily meds. I had to go where ever the kids went. I carried my first aid backpack with all the meds, plus I toted a portable first aid kit. That back pack was heavy.
I had kids dropping like flies, sorry for the pun, it was so hot and humid, mostly the girls would be sick with the heat. And the chafing, I had one young lady get chafed so bad, it was bleeding. She didn't tell me on the first day because she was embarrassed. After fussing to her that I've seen it all, don't worry, I had to patch her up. Poor dear was warned not to move or face my wrath. I had to find a store to get stuff to fix her thigh area.
I thought I would have free time, yeah right. I spent so much time going from kid to kid. I finally got a golf cart on Saturday for me to use. Thank goodness! All in all, I think everyone had a great time! Only thing, I didn't think to get any pictures of me in doing my duties! Too bad.
We had room checks at 11:30 pm, then I could get some rest!
Glad to be home! Daisy sure has stayed near my side today! Poor little girl probably didn't get loved on enough from my husband. He tolerates my kitties.
Last but not least-did I finish my roof? Unfortunately no, I've got to finish it. i don't have much left, so I feel I'll finish tomorrow!
