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.
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!
