Fall Habits

It seems that every fall, the same series of events happens.  I get sick, I lose my voice.  I try to suffer through teaching and singing, which accidentally makes it worse.  I end up with bronchitis and go to sleep for a few days.  I eat like crazy, and then I get meds and stop eating.  A vicious cycle, but it's the way things go.

Sadly, the lack of voice has arrived.  When I got up Friday, there was nothing there.  I haven't sang at all since at least Thursday.  It makes it really hard to be a music teacher.  I've got a doctor's appointment tomorrow, I'm hoping that they have an answer for me.  There's nothing worse than going and getting nothing.

Other fall habits: my brother's fall break.  He's home from Purdue, so I actually got to see him yesterday.  We went to Dave and Buster's with mom.  i came home with an ice cream maker.
Hamilton Beach Half Pint Ice Cream Maker - Blue I'm super excited.  I had tickets left over from last time, but I'm very excited!  I need to wash and freeze the bowls so I can try it out soon!

Another fall habit: my birthday!  October 16 is always one of my favorite days of the year.  Joey gave me my present early since he won't be here - all 6 Harry Potter movies on DVD!  I'm very excited, as I really enjoy these movies but didn't have them.  I'll be spending Saturday at Josh's sister's wedding.  It is a popular day to get married - his aunt and uncle did it 6 years ago, and his cousin Peg was married 5 years ago on Oct 15!  It's a great anniversary weekend, both of marriages and births!
