In Which I Don't Have Enough To Do Already

Connor finally finally has both hearing aids repaired now and back on his ears. The kid kept breaking one or the other of them and he won't usually wear just one; it's all or nothing. It'll probably take him a little while to get used to wearing them again as they've been out for several weeks, but hopefully he'll get the hang of it soon and he'll quit pulling the darn things out at school. He did pretty well at home today, so hopefully it'll be a quick adjustment.

I'm a little stiff and sore today-- did another spin (cycling) class this morning and so my leg muscles, particularly my quads, do not like me anymore. I like the classes because there's motivating music and lots of other people there to encourage you, but unlike the Zumba classes there's little chance of me flailing about and accidentally punching someone in the eye. Pretty sure that in spin class punching someone would have to be deliberate. Despite having the occasional sympathetic thought directed towards hamsters on those little wheels (you work so hard and you go nowhere!) I'm enjoying spinning and certainly getting a good workout!

Tomorrow we're headed to the Tacoma Home and Garden Show to brave the crowds, attend a workshop or two (I'm especially excited about the edible landscaping one) and check out all the neat innovations and trends for 2010. I'll be keeping a close eye out for attractive universal design products; recently I've been considering starting up an "accessible home" blog because I'm interested in that sort of thing, there doesn't seem to be a regularly updated blog on the web that covers that particular territory, and because I am totally nuts and apparently have too much free time on my hands. I'll share what I find with you on Sunday since tomorrow Jeremy will be answering more questions!

Don't forget to tell me if my christmas present was a hit, big bro.

Another blog sounds like a great idea to me! Plus, it would be a real service to others to have an up-to-date resource on accessibility design/products. Rock on!

hearing aids! they are wonderful, and amazing, but also so hard to deal with. Queen Teen loves her aids because they work, but they bother her so much she also hates them. I don't know what the trick is, but when I figure it out, I'll let you know.
