And the rug is great. I hate wearing shoes so I don't. It is very soft and cushiony on my feet. And pretty and it hides the grout that I hate to clean. Nice.
We had anew (to us) teacher for class today and she was GREAT. Instead of coming from a fitness background, she's from a dance/synchronized swimming background. We learned all kinds of new things and new stuff about old things (whys and hows). And she was fun. She's an interim coordinator for the pool this summer so won't be teaching often but I wrote to her boss after class to convey the message that we'd like her as often as possible (and quickly got a really nice note back).
Even with all this good stuff, I don't really feel great today. I can't pinpoint exactly why not and I don't feel terrible. Just kind of off without a lot of energy. I'm sure it will pass. I've had it before and it's usually gone in a day.
But, I did want to make a note here so I don't forget. When I was first diagnosed with COPD and started taking all this medicine to breathe, my voice took a huge hit. Sometimes I had no voice. Sometimes I had some but not much. Sometimes I was ok. There was no rhyme or reason I could ever figure out. Nothing seemed to fix it. Nothing seemed to aggravate it. But generally, once a day, I'd open my mouth to say something and nothing came out. I remember it happening while I was in Las Vegas this year so that was January. It occurred to me the other day that sometime between then and now, the problem went away. I never sound hoarse. I sound perfectly fine all the time. It's been a long time since I've noticed any kind of voice anomalie. It took a couple of years but it's all fixed now. Weird but fine by me!
