I have no words.

So I've been sick since last Tuesday. I made a deal with myself that I could get as sick as my body deemed necessary - as long as it was after Easter and after the PaperWise installation at work (huge new operating system to take our company paperless; much work to prepare, much anticipated pushback from the staff, many software/hardware bugs to work out - sweet). Everything went down the week prior to Easter - rehearsals - long hours at work because of PaperWise, etc. So now my body has cashed in on the deal I made with it. Awesome.

Worst sore throat I've ever had, fever up to 102, body aches, stuff nose, ear ache, blah, blah, blah.

Went back to work yesterday after missing the majority of last week. Fever came back today (not as high, but now I'm freaked it's headed in that direction). Good times. No voice left. Crap. What am I supposed to do if I can't talk? I suck at drawing pictures and I only know one phrase in sign language. The last bit of vocal power I had left was spent yelling at my kids to be quiet when I was trying to read Jon's sad and phony "Oh (sniff, sniff) we're moving away and leaving everything we love" story (see comments on his blog for deets). Nice.

So no more talking.

I am weeping. Kurt is rejoicing.

Okay Heidi...I'm suspicious now! Billy has been down with the same stuff (minus the fever). Hmmm...seriously you people in the Worship Arts department need to get it together and start mainlining Airborne or something. Good timing on getting sick though. Billy was thinking the same thing about himself.

I hope you start feelin better soon. It's a bummer when you can't yell at your own children anymore. Take care my friend and get better!

I hope you feel better! Does that mean you can't sing this weekend? :o)
