Let me be honest. I know my blog is sunshiney and positive right now, and it's likely to stay that way for a long time. I just can't bring myself to complain about my kids or Jon's travel or anything right now because they are all minor blips in the grand scheme of things.
Last night, Jon had a conference call run late so I unexpectedly picked the boys up in sweaty workout clothes. When we got home, Alex had a tantrum/freakout, the details of which are not important but are related to his ADHD. After he was calmed down, Jon mentioned he was leaving that night for a business trip instead of the next morning. I said I needed a quick shower to refresh and get a plan together for what I needed to get done before he left.
I hopped in the shower, overwhelmed with how loud everything sounded, just needing some quiet. I washed my face and put my hands on my ears as I was thinking. And my freaking $3500 not-waterproof not-covered-by-insurance hearing aid was still in my ear.
I hopped out of the shower, jammed it in it's dehumidifier, and finished my shower while giggling uncontrollably because OF COURSE when it rains, it pours. And also because, when I got my hearing aid, my audiologist said, "If you accidentally jump in the shower with it on...." and I thought, "I would never, ever do that. Who would be stupid enough to do that?????"
Good news: It's on this morning. I have a call in to my audiologist to run some tests so if it's still working correctly.
Even better news: I will never again think, "Who would be stupid enough to do xxxxx?????" because now I know, I would be that stupid.
