I have no voice today. I don't even sound like Marge Simpson's sisters anymore, just kind of sick and whiny, and my voice comes and goes.

I was making cookies this morning. H was running around being loud and wanting enthusiastic feedback on everything he did, most of which involved loud announcements of "UH OH!"

And then the HR person from my new job called. I don't know why I even picked up the phone. And just as I was squeaking out that this might not be the best time to talk, the oven started going BEEP BEEP BEEP to tell me that the cookies were done.

It was not my finest moment. Surely I can only improve from here. I'm all about the low expectations.

One cannot take care of everything at the same time, one cannot be mother, cookie baker and the person who has been to school and who has done so well and is amazing with all that she does.
Does this make any sense? Perhaps not..I do know that you have done so much, are a loving and caring mother, a person who loves her husband and family....some days it is easier than others, but never doubt your worth and your importance. Been there and done it.
Whoo, forgive my verbal obsessiveness.

Hang in there... I've had my spells of laryngitis and I sympathize with you.

I'm a big believer in low(er) expectations. Gives you plenty of room to wow them, as we know you will.

Apparently your creeping illness can be spread via blog, because I am now at the Marge's-sisters'-voice stage.

Bright side for you - COOKIES! :D

Please don't try to do so many things all at once. It is okay to just sit down and rest. Get better. Be sick a little bit. You deserve it.

I dunno... there's a special place reserved in a man's heart for a woman that's unable to speak.

I hope you are feeling better by now. If not, hot water or tea with honey always helps me.
