In Which Connor's Hearing Aids Are Found!

Jeremy found Connor's hearing aids!

They were on a table in our bedroom of all places, half-buried under a pile of clothes.  I highly suspect that the cats had something to do with this.  So all is well and disaster was averted.  I'm glad they are found, and Connor seems to be pretty glad of it too!  He's been asking for them a lot in the past few days.

Connor's battling a case of insomnia again, which of course means I'll be up until goodness knows what time.  So I'm up listening old episodes of a radio program about adoption and eating a bowl of ice cream.  If I have to stay up until all hours of the night, I might as well get some ice cream out of it.

I'm feeling pretty wiped; I spent some time outside today and also had roller derby practice tonight.  So I'm afraid that I'm writing this about half asleep right now.  I just spent about five minutes staring at the same sentence because I couldn't remember how to spell "bowl."  You know how if you look at a word for a really long time it starts looking increasingly weird and you can convince yourself it's not really a word?  Okay, maybe I'm the only one who does that.  At any rate, I just did it with "bowl." 

Evidently I'm pretty tired.

The ice cream sounds good, and I do that with words all the time.
Sign is the one that always gets me.

Good news about the hearing aids too.

Thank you for validating my not-quite-craziness. And, btw, I can do it just by saying a word sometimes. (Find myself thnking, "Is that really a word at all?")

Hallelujah the HA are found :D

Oh, I do that all the time. I used to be a great speller, but over the last couple of decades, it's disintegrated. Double letters are my nemesis -- is it targeted, or targetted? Fettucine, or fetuccine, or fettuccine, or what?!? None of them look right. I have a close friend named Carolyn, and after knowing her for almost three decades, I went to type her name in an e-mail and it *did not look right*, no matter how I typed it. Sheesh.

Great news about the hearing aids. Have you considered the possibility that your house is infested with malicious elves?

Cats do that sort of thing.
