The rain started here tonight and is supposed to continue for awhile. I don’t really mind. We’ve had a lot of rain lately – my flowers are looking great in the front of th e house.
The rain has made mowing difficult. While I was in Kentucky, someone mowed my yard for me. My guess is it was my next door neighbors, Bob and Ruth. They are fabulous neighbors. I haven’t gone over to ask them because I can still barely talk, and if this is contagious I don’t want to give it to them either.
I feel much better today and my voice is better, but it’s still a struggle to speak for any amount of time. I don’t know where I got this from, but I will be glad to be done with it. No one even recognizes me when I answer the phone. I’m about halfway between a whisper and “low talking” today – I could not manage a long distance phone call now with anything less than perfect signal. I have a list of calls I’ve been waiting to make because I can’t talk loud enough for people to hear me on the phone without lots of repeating, which just wears me out – taking all the breath I do have.
Not being able to talk is really weirding me out, but there’s nothing I can do about it. I have a meeting in the morning at 7. It’s a good thing I’m not supposed to speak at it.
Thank goodness I don’t feel as bad as I sound.
