Laryngitis Among Other Things

Well, today really didn't start off right. I overslept first of all. I guess I forgot to set my alarm clock. I lost my voice Saturday, about an hour before my sister's birthday party. It's a bad time to lose your voice because my sister loves to sing, as do I and I'm sure I would have tried to sing a tune with her. That of course couldn't happen. I am waiting for my voice to come back but to no avail. It's still gone. I woke up today with terrible upper back pain. I get this from time to time...especially if I spend time drawing, which I did yesterday. I lean over too long and don't stretch enough. I blame only myself. So I have a sore throat this morning as well, combined with a head cold, upper back pain and no voice. I overslept so I kept the kids home. I didn't really want to, but I also felt pretty awful and didn't want to have to go in to the school and explain we overslept. I decided this one time, to stay home. I hope tomorrow I feel better!

It's not all awful. I am sitting here curled up with my 8 year old. It puts a smile on my face. I'm including a picture of my sis and I at her birthday party.
