A Wee Advent Rant....

Just a brief post of crankiness. I feel like a giant germ factory. A walking histamine. Tonight is the rescheduled Lessons and Carols and I have no idea where my vocal range begins or ends. I have tentatively been singing along with the tape, but it produces coughing fits, so I've been a little reluctant to push it. I did go to work yesterday. At least my body was present. After the Zyrtec hit, the 3:00 hour was a serious struggle with leaded eyelids. I went home and hit the bed at six last night and slept straight through until this morning at seven. Unheard of! I'm leaving at noon with my boss' blessing to take a nap and try to get myself in some semblance of order for tonight. And on top of everything else it's really really cold outside and yes, I am taking it personally! It's supposed to snow again tonight. Bah! Whose idea was it to have Christmas in December, anyway?

Rant on, sister. I've been there recently, too. It really stinks--especially when you have your heart set on other things.

Prayers for a speedy recovery and the chance to sing. If you can't sing, maybe you can just soak in the joyous sounds...

I've been known to lip synch on such occasions.
Seriously, I hope you can sing, and if you can't, just enjoy the music, the lessons, and the beauty of the church.
Then go home and go to bed.

I hope you enjoy the service, even if all you can do is listen. (And I really hope you're belting out carols right now.)
