“Hearing Again” Woman #2

Posted Jan 16 2010 3:57pm

FOR TODAY… January 16, 2010

Outside my window…

It is dark. It is already 6:30 PM so I can’t see anything outside my window. Imagine that!

I am thinking…

The kids just left to go to a movie and I am thinking about how glad I am that they can “stand each other”. Oh sure, they argue sometimes but they also tend to get along pretty well. It’s nice they can go to a movie and just hang out if they want. It also makes me kinda miss my own siblings though!

I am hearing…

I can hear the hubby downstairs talking to his dad on the phone. This still amazes me. That I can hear someone in another room talking, recognize their voice, and even know who it is that they are talking too! I just love my cochlear implant. (Hubby talks VERY southern when he is talking to his daddy, so I know he has to be talkin’ to him right now! GRIN).

I am thankful for…

… my assistance dog. She woke me up around 1:00 AM this morning which is highly unusual. I turned on the light and asked her what the problem was. She took me to my husband who was passed out cold on the floor! She must have heard him hit! (He has a bruise on his head, so we think he hit his head on the way down). She was never trained for this and I am always amazed when she does something instinctive like this. Luckily he is fine… he had food poisoning yesterday and for whatever reason ended up passing out. I’m glad the bruise seems to be all that is evidence of his last 12 hours!

I am wearing…

Blue jeans, gray sweatshirt with black turtleneck underneath… and hiking boots.

A Cochlear Implant…

… always goes “dead” and need its batteries changed at the most inopportune time! I suppose that means that at ANY given moment of the day everything we are hearing “again” and experiencing are “important moments”. I have never heard my “warning” beep to change my batteries at a time that was convenient!

I am remembering…

… my cousin Candi tonight. I just got off perusing her Facebook and am just amazed at the distinct and genuine evidence of Christ in her life. She was just diagnosed with breast cancer and is just an amazing young mother. She has a new blog at: My Favorite Things

I am going…

… no place else today! GRIN! It’s dark and I don’t see well at night, so I’m “in for the night”. I plan to curl up with a book and read.

I need to…

Go find my NLT version of the Bible. I read something in my new ESV study Bible this morning that made me think (Proverbs 21). I wanted to see what another version said.

A disability is NOT…

… and excuse to put away your dreams. You can still have goals and dreams and find a way to reach them!

I am currently reading…

I just started Joyce Meyer’s “Managing Your Emotions”. Yeah… that’s right! I’m an emotional creature.

I am hoping…

… my mom calls me this weekend. She and Dad both had doctor appointments this week I believe. I’m anxious to see how things went.

From the kitchen…

I am going to slap a couple of sandwiches together for hubby and I. Aren’t I industrious?

Around the house…

… I need to get the clothes out of the dryer and fold them. I also need to put the “Haystacks” in an airtight ziplock bag for the kid’s college get-together tomorrow night. If there are broken pieces, I get to eat them with ZERO calories to add! Yup! Broken pieces of candy have no calories. Didn’t you know that?

One of my favorite things…

Warm clothes out of the dryer… yup! I can’t wait to go down and get those clothes! (Aren’t I strange?)

My husband…

… has been enjoying the playoffs today. I just don’t get football season or the playoffs. In the end, the only game that matters is the Super Bowl. Why not watch other things all year, and just tune into the Super Bowl each year? That just seems incredibly logical to ME!

My daughter…

… is looking forward to school starting. This is her first long winter break as she has always taken a class during the break in the past. All this free time has actually made her anxious for classes to start back. You go girl!

My son…

… is not looking forward to school starting. He seems to “relax and enjoy” better than his sister does.

My assistance dog…

… is resting quietly by my side. I’m rather surprised actually! It’s past her supper time! She usually REMINDS me by now!

A picture to share from this week…

In honor of my cousin Candi… May God bless your writing and chronicle of this new journey!
