It Never Fails

I always seem to get sick the first or second week of school.  Always.  So it isn't any surprise that I got spectacularly sick this weekend.  Totally confined to my bed by Saturday afternoon.

I think Joel must have somehow conveyed to the people at church that I am dying or something, because so many people have called and dropped treats and dinner by or offered to take the kids.  I'm so blessed to have good friends in my life.  Thank you wonderful friends!

And since I've already been whining for a while, I'll just leave it at that and go back to bed.

(Lest you worry about me too much, I am on the upswing and I was well enough to teach all day today.  That is, if you consider being so congested that my ears may explode being "well."  And if you consider a practically deaf person whose ears may explode at any time to be any sort of a good singing teacher.)

  1. I seem to get sick as school starts as well. I think it's all the germs the kids bring home from school. I hope you feel better soon.

  4. UGH! And it seems that right after school starts - everyone comes down with something. School = germs!

  6. I hear ya. Well, as well as I can hear anyone through my own congested ears. Let's just say there is a very large box of kleenex in my studio.

  7. Get well soon Lara, we don't need your ears exploding. We wouldn't want you having to re-enact the scene from Sons of Provo with the vocal instructor who would feel the tune. I mean, while people like Beethoven are impressive, you need not suffer that much for your art. Let your ward family help out and get better soon!

  9. Same thing happened to me last week! I haven't tracked it, but I wouldn't be surprised if I get sick every new school year too.

    Hope your congestion clears soon! Take sudafed!
