Bill and I are both hard of hearing. My hearing loss is recent, but it's sure been interesting. I borrowed his hearing aid for my right ear and it was amazing how much better I could hear. Do you have any idea how much hearing aids cost??? $4000. Yup. Tons. My implants are costing a little over $5000, so hearing aids are out for me for awhile. I want Bill to let me wear one and he can wear one, but he's emotionally attached to them now. I told him the doctor said my ears are very very clean, but he's keeping them hidden from me now.
Last night, after we got little Rowan to sleep and we were both exhausted and lying in bed, he said, "what's that?"
I said, "what?"
And he said, "I said, goodnight, hon."
And I laid there a minute, then I just cracked up. And we both had a laugh.
Today, after dealing with Rowan(she is such a pistol, talks and moves non-stop), the dogs, the bills, and the house, I headed uptown at noon to do some errands and take her to a craft class at the craft store. I live 5 miles out of town. I took Bill his lunch, but as I got out of the car, realized I didn't have my purse.
I went into the dealership with Rowan carrying Grandpa's lunch and said, "Hi hon, I am having the worst day. I forgot my purse and I have to go back home and get it."
He said, "Before you go, I need a couple of checks for Home Depot."
I said, "I forgot my purse and I have to go back home and get it."
He said, "where's your drivers license?"
Me: Head exploded.
What a day. I also owe Rowan a million dollars when I get it because we made a bet that Max didn't have a middle name and Max didn't think he did, and guess what, he does. So I'm in hock to my granddaughter till eternity.
And me and Bill are wandering through our days failing to communicate.
