After 2.5 years….
Be used to certain sounds by now? There are some sounds that still irritate me..
— the sound of the toilet flushing
— the sound of Velcro peeling off
— the sound of some of my son’s cars rolling on the floor, the pullback variety
— the sound of running water and showers
Some of these sounds are not pleasant to me, now that I can hear the higher frequencies better. Hopefully that will change one day, but for now, I continue to shudder and wince at some sounds.
Be able to consistently hear and understand speech with noise, without lipreading more than I could before? Well depends on the day, if I’m tired or sick, not a chance. If it’s really loud, not a chance. In other cases, it’s my mapping that needs adjusting, which it does now.

Be wearing it more than I do? Yes. Unfortunately I’ve had a crap ton of headaches and migraines in the last month due to the freaky weather systems we’ve been having.

It’s also affected my workouts as I don’t want to move much. A side benefit is I think my lip reading skills have gotten back on track so that’s a silver lining.

He be potty trained by now? Oh wait we were talking about me.. Um well… Never mind then..
Write more? Yes, but somehow my three and half year old seems to keep me busy! He will be in school in a scant few months…so that will be helpful for writing, working out, building my Beachbody and Primerica businesses.. And practising my AVT…
I am not waiting until then to do those things, but it will be much easier to juggle them. I am looking forward to getting a few hours to myself daily!
