I have no voice. I lost it yesterday and today even yesterday's hoarse croak would be welcomed.
Calling the puppies is a challenge as they stubbornly refuse to learn to read. For them, they can't understand why I am not giving my usual commands and go bounding off as puppies do...
And rather than answering one of the children with a well timed bellow of where whatever misplaced article is, I have to go and either find them or get the article in question. They think reading my notes is funny and are apt to answer back by writing!
Plus I do like to have conversations. Frustrating in the extreme.
My mess in progress is going far more slowly than I would wish as a result. SIGH.
