Continuing to Work with No Voice to Talk- Life before Email?

By
Real Estate Agent with Regent Property Group 0480809

Man, what did we do before email, blogging, twitter, and many more when we couldn't talk?

I have no idea what happened, but yesterday evening, my voice was going a little hoarse, and I woke up this morning with absolutely no voice.  I could whisper, but apparently those are different muscles.

However, email to the rescue!!!  I was able to get so much accomplished today just because of the ability of email and other online avenues to talk with people.

How amazing is that?

Back in the day, like just 10 years ago, if you couldn't talk, good luck trying to get anything done if you needed to "talk" with someone.

Man, my throat is killing me from the talking I did try to do today, but my daughter doesn't know enough sign language to communicate in all signs.

I hope my voice is back tomorrow as there is so much more I need to do that can't be done via email, like YELL at people!!

Lorrie, Sorry to hear that. Glad you're doing better.

Petra, It's somewhat back, but it came back with a vengence of other "crud".

Greg, Skin of the lemon?  Why?  Can it be a lemon zest like in a pasta sauce?

Donna,

I hope your voice is better soon.  Sometimes it can take a while for it to come back.

Donna, thank goodness email saved you. Think if you had to do that all over the phone or in person. Hope the voice gets rested up soon for you.

Ann, It's getting there.  I still sound a little hoarse, but a million times better.

Gary, It did get some rest.  Grandma took Alyssa a couple of times so I didn't have to talk to her so it could rest some more... now, if I could get rid of the cough my voice came back with.

Additional Information

This blog is to help educate Buyers, Sellers and even other Realtors across the country.  Each market is different and the way Real Estate is done is different.  Austin Real Estate is completely different than Dallas, California and Florida and everywhere else in between.  Some times there will be other things besides real estate as I like to rant and rave as much as the next!!  Come back often!
