This week has been NUTS. Seriously. I can not even remember what happened on Thursday – but I know it had to be more calm than the rest of the week was.
Friday I got “that call” from Samantha’s school and spent the rest of the day at the Emergency Room and waiting on prescriptions. That whole day is a blur. I remember going to bed Friday night and feeling a lump in the back of my throat – kinda like when something is stuck cause you didn’t swallow it right. It was annoying but not painful so I didn’t think much more of it.
The weekend was mostly relaxing – I think I caught myself saying “I’m Bored” a few times which is SO unlike me. I get a little stir crazy when I am bored and normally launch into some big project of redecorating or something. In fact I thing the last time I said “I’m bored” was when I launched into the creation of my Cinderblock Garden – which I hope to put a water feature into this summer.
Sunday was Superbowl which was fun. Mike played in a poker tournament and Dad came over to watch the game. We cooked a ridiculous amount of food which we all have been grazing on all week. I thought for sure I was going to put back on every ounce I have lost but thankfully I didn’t. I did some yelling at the screen during the game and still had that “cant quite swallow” feeling going on – but again, since it wasn’t painful I ignored it.
Monday I started feeling funny and by the time my Conference Call began my voice was almost non existent and I squeaked through the last few minutes of the call. I took some Alkaseltzer Cold Nighttime and was in bed before the girls were. I slept nearly a solid 12 hours that night. I dont know what’s in that stuff – but it knocked me out.
When I woke up Tuesday my voice had morphed into that of a 100 year old man that had smoked two packs a day since he emerged from the womb. Yep, it’s sexy. My Conference Call Tuesday night was quite comical – and the recording does not even remotely sound like me. Probably will have to re-record that one.
So today I am trying to not talk unless I absolutely have to – Mike is thrilled – and instead I am focusing on working, creating new trainings, writing up blog posts, etc. I’ve joked a few times that I should get laryngitis (self diagnosis) more often if it means I can get this much done.
I will probably go to the doctor if my voice does not return or if this lump in my throat does not go away by Monday. I have to think I just picked something up while at the ER with Sami and there is nothing they can do for laryngitis anyway, so silly to go in. There is no pain – just that annoying feeling of trying to swallow something down every second and it wont move. And for my voice – honestly, a few days of NOT having to talk sounds pretty nice!
How was your week?
