I still go to karaoke from time to time – but not much these days. I still sing at church, but since Christmas I have not spent as much time at home so I can’t help out at church as much to lead singing.
With the season changing to autumn (fall) has come some problems with my throat glands swelling, the colder weather affects my fibromyalgia/arthritis and and in turn that affects my breath control and singing. I have a lot of tension in my throat presently (and last Sunday I did a lousy job of singing in church because of it).

How I did it: I had a baby, and babies want to hear songs. Lots and Lots of songs. I sing every. single. day. Several times a day. Mostly I sing lullabies and childrens songs - but - every once in a while I sing Nat King Cole or Frank Sinatra. It's awesome. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
