Speak Up!

What an unfortunately convenient time for Eric to be away from home. His wife has laryngitis!

AHEM!! Yep. No actual speaking voice to be heard. Just crackling and coughing.

Over the past few days, my vocal cords have been threatening a stike and Friday morning, they made good on their unspoken word. It stinks that Eric had to travel to Pennsylvania to work at a gun show this weekend, but luckily, it wasn't too many hours away that he was able to leave a little bit later in the morning. The beauty part of this was that he fed Elaina breakfast and got her off to the babysitter's house as I called off work and went back to bed. I felt a little bit bad about sending Elaina off to the sitter's house until I realized that it would be even more detramental to her that her mother wouldn't be speaking to her for the majority of the day. At least there, she had her friends to play with and lots of fun and noise, versus being at home with a sickly, quiet mum.
When Elaina arrived home, I was much more rested, both physically and vocally and we enjoyed our evening together. It was a pretty good plan for the both of us. By the end of the day, I had a little bit more steady tone crackling through my hoarseness and was still able to read Elaina her books at bedtime and tell her how much I love her.
