Helllloooo... is this thing on?

Yes, the rumors are true. I have completely lost my voice. Completely. It is really so sad. I have a big ole cold. Saturday, I woke up feeling pretty lousy. I kept taking decongestants and started feeling a little bit better. Saturday night, we had some people over for a housewarming party. I had to leave the party around 10:00 and go to bed. I seriously thought I was dying. My nose was all stuffed up, I couldn't breathe, and I had started losing my voice.

The thing that sucks is that the party continued without me AND our bathroom is located off of our bedroom. So, everytime someone needed to take a leak, they had to walk into the bedroom, strike up conversation with me, use the bathroom, say something as they left, open the door, and close it. This happened frequently until about 3:00 AM.

Finally I fell asleep..... I woke up Sunday morning to NO voice. Not even a squeak... just air. Now, for those of you that know me... you know that I am a talker, a singer, a noise maker.... I like to shoot the shit. I like to sing along with some of the jingles on TV. Like Mattress Discounters, Chilli's baby back ribs, and many others. They make me laugh. Speaking of laughing... I CAN'T. I can't do either... I can't speak of it and I can't do it. Grrrrrr.....

So, I spent yesterday watching football with Jon, taking hot baths, drinking lots of water and hot tea, and sleeping. Today, I am home from work and will probably be doing the same. Hopefully, two days without speaking will bring my voice back.

Back to sleep I go....
