Friday 7-12

I had a meeting with the group that will be helping to pay part of my hearing aids.  They will pay 60% of the cost, which is totally awesome.  I have to figure out how long it will take for me to be able to save the balance, which is the 40%.  It should be a few months and then I will have good hearing, something I haven't had since I was 13 and I had that horribly long ear infections in both ears that I never told my mother about.  Yeah, I have cautioned Calli to never do that.  Even if she is worried about telling her mom or dad about something that is wrong with her, she must tell them immediately.  She said she would.  I think I am a good example of what can happen if you don't.  Anyways, in a couple of months I will be hearing sounds I haven't heard since I was a child.  It will be weird.

Calli is reading to Acer right now.  It is a good story.  I have been listening too.  It is a mystery story.  Acer loves to have people read to him.  Last night, he wanted me to read to him before bed.  I read 2 small stories and then he went to bed.  I like to read before bed too.  We are all readers in this house.  It is a lovely thing to be in this house.  Acer likes to read also.  He has read a few books to me.  I get such a joyous feeling when I hear him or Calli read.  It makes me smile.  Calli reads very well out loud.

It is beautiful outside today.  I actually want to take my scooter out and go for a scooter.  Maybe Calli will want to go for a scooter walk today after Acer's lesson.  It is just that beautiful.  The temperature is perfect along with the humidity level.  It isn't too humid and too hot.  I haven't scootered in a while either.  We may even be able to bring Maisy.  She loves to go for walks.  Maisy and Q both love to go for walks.  I don't need to go for a long one, just enough to soak up the sun and the beautiful weather.  I will ask after Acer's lesson.  Acer might want to go to.  Who knows.  One never knows in this house.  I do like my scooter even though I wish I didn't need one.

I don't expect that I will still need it even when I am thinner.  It isn't the fibro that causes me to need it so much as it is the arthritis.  With the arthritis that is, as my doctor has said, riddled through my lower back, I cannot stand for very long nor can I walk very long or very far.  When I have lost about 30 more pounds then I plan to start walking more outside of the house.  My goal is to go to the top of the street and back without needing the scooter.  I figure that maybe I will be able to go farther than I can, but as for walking for miles like I used to, I know I won't be able to do that.

I have a few students today.  Acer is one of them.  Ryan has been on vacation for 2 weeks so he is back today.  I am glad.  I miss my students when they are not here for their lessons.  I don't have that many so I do miss them when they are gone.  Robyn is ill today so she won't be coming.  She has a summer cold and is planning to go to the doctor this afternoon.  I hope she feels better next week.

Well, Mr. Acer is anxiously awaiting for the bop it pinball on the computer so I am going to have to end this now.  He is most impatient.  I don't blame him.  He loves bop its a lot.  We hear bop it games all day long.  Acer even makes the noises himself when he isn't playing the games.

  1. I haven't used my scooter at all...yet. I just might one of these days but like you I hate the idea that I need one and I don't want to advertise to the neighborhood that I am 'less' than able. It's stupid but it's how it is right now! Have a good weekend and play in the sun for me.
