"Vocal Rest"

So yesterday I went to the doctor. Diagnosed with bronchitis and laryngitis. My doc thinks it's viral at this point but gave me a prescription just in case it gets worse. If it does, I'm supposed to get the prescription filled. I don't feel bad but I can't talk. She said I need vocal rest- no talking. So I did well yesterday not talking. Got a lot done as a matter of fact! Emptied kitchen pantry. Cleaned all shelves and the walls. Put contents back in very organized! I even got to use my new label maker for a few things. I washed the trashcan and the lid to Lottie's food container. Very clean in there now! Then I entered about 25 accessory/equipment things into the computer to make my consignment sale tags. I got them in baggies and ready to go. Still need to tackle the clothes and toys. In the afternoon I cleaned out the hall closet and packed up some of our games so it wouldn't be so full. I reorganized the hanging shoe organizer that is on the door. I use that for hats, gloves, scarves, umbrellas, etc. It looks very nice too! We are trying to pack away some of our stuff so when we put our house on the market it isn't crammed full of all our stuff. So I've been bring boxes home from school. Anyway, back to today...
I went to school today so I don't have any more days without pay. Thankfully I have a student teacher. She did a lot of the talking. Carrie and Brenda covered for me as well. I was useless there but did help with behavior monitoring a lot. I got several things done this morning but still felt stupid being there and not being able to talk. Hoping my voice is back tomorrow. I'm staying home from small group tonight so that I don't talk!
