Speechless

… as in I have no voice. Never short on things to say, but I just can’t get them out.

I’ve been fighting a cold/sore throat/cough and now sinus infection for the past week and a half and it has now taken my voice. I’m on a second round of (stronger) meds to try to clear up this mess, but the doc said a minimum of 48 hours of “complete vocal rest”. To top it off, I am scheduled to be on a plane to DC tomorrow morning for the better part of a week of project meetings and a Wednesday morning presentation. All of which should be interesting, to say the least. And I’m not excited by the thought of getting on an airplane feeling like this…

It also makes being with Li interesting, as I’m pretty sure she’s not quite aware of why I’m not talking. She insists on whispering to me, but she’s very snuggly right now so she must have some sense that I really don’t feel very good even if she doesn’t understand why Daddy isn’t talking. Lots of nonverbal going on… plus this way she gets to read to me.
