Today was one of those days where you just fall into the couch in the evening and take a deep breath and just think of all that was done in a 24 hour period. My morning started at 5am when I had two great kids dropped off at my house to take to school in the morning. Helping a friend out who has helped me so many times. Then I had to drive to a neighboring town. Living in the middle of no where has advantages and disadvantages. One disadvantage would be a near 45 minute drive to any medical specialist, any major store, or restaurant. Well today was another audiologist appointment. I still could not hear anyone who was talking quietly or softly. I am not sure if I could when I could when I got the hearing aid or did my hearing slide a little more down. I am guessing the second of the two is what is happening. Well I had it upped two more levels and I think it will help. Technology is a beautiful thing seeing everything charted on a computer screen is really a cool thing. Maybe I am a nerd when it comes to that stuff but seeing where my hearing lies on the chart and what is being picked up and by how much is kinda cool. Left the office hearing a little more of the environment that I was missing. Wow you can hear jingling keys in your pocket.
Stopped by Target and you never know what you will see, or have the impulse to buy. I saw a friend from town shopping on her own also today so we shopped together and then out to breakfast. What a nice surprise. We talked that if we would have tried to plan this meeting and breakfast it would have never happened so nice to have a surprise like this. A great friend that we can talk freely about Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, school challenges, and life challenges. So nice to know your not alone in the world. A few more stops than the drive back home.
You know I said I wasn’t really in the Christmas spirit well I figured we better put a Christmas tree up so that was our after school project. The kids were nuts to get that tree up. Well they think it is the most beautiful tree they have ever seen. ME- It is awful. It is a cheap small artificial tree that is so misshapen it should be in the trash can. Only half the lights worked so it is very pieced together and I guess a tree only a child could love.
It was a busy day but a day of some new hearing, breakfast with a friend, and an ugly tree that has children in awe.
