No voice having somebody

ARG!  Its a doozy this time.  Barely a whisper.  I stopped talking Tuesday, but I try every day because you cannot really tell if you have a voice or not otherwise.  I try once in the morning, then again in the evening.  Nope, nada, not happening.  Sigh.

Well, life must go on.

Today, I was determined to not feel sorry for myself and get things moving.  Do you know how much your jaw starts to hurt when you don't talk? Wow!

So, I got up, and started my old plan of wiping the toilet, sink and bathroom mirror, and making the bed before I leave the room.  I also gathered all the clothes and started a load of laundry.  Then I sat down with my coffee.  AHH!

After a while, I decided to start writing thank you notes for the Christmas gifts and those that brought us something at our Open House.  14 thank yous and 1 birthday card.  That takes a while because I do hand write a note on each of them.

When I got through with that, I decided to take down all the Christmas decor.  The kids helped me.  Now I just remembered, I have not eaten today. 

DH is working late, so I am all in for dinner - we are having pork chops with mushrooms, rice and a salad. 

I may just take some more time and read this late afternoon. I love these slow days where I can get something done AND relax.

  1. Well, the one advantage of being sick is an opportunity to relax I suppose. We did a lot of that as well over the holidays. Hope you are back & at 100% soon!
