18 work days.

Apparently, this little thing called a job comes before my blogging. So my blogging has suffered. I have been working between twelve and eighteen hours per day. At least six days a week. The good news is this schedule won't last long, and the rest of the year my job is a dream.

I will take a quick minute to update everyone on the hearing aid and the coach. We brought the hearing aid to him last night. We called the gym to figure out a good time to go. They got one of his good friends in on it. He gave me some of the background information. I found out that his other hearing aid needs a new ear mold, too. His friend told him he would have a visitor at the gym, but would not tell him who. He was extremely confused when we showed up.

He was still confused as I was explaining that I had a hearing aid for him. I don't think he understood that I was giving it to him. I had to outright say, "IT IS FREE!" You could see the relief on his face. The tension released from his shoulders. He just kept saying, "I am trying not to cry here at the gym." He didn't understand why someone who barely knew him would be willing to help him out.

It was so much fun. The kids had a blast. Jill is still talking about it tonight. I am very glad that we have been able to help out. Not only do I feel good about it, but I have taught my children how great it is to be able to make someone's life better.

I have more on this, an email to share with you all. But I have not sat down and stared at the TV in days. Or, you know, talked to Kenny. So I am going to do that now. Tomorrow, I will share the email and go give you all some comment love (Lee and Erin...I have to get on Kenny's computer to read your blog, so I have really neglected you! Sorry)!

That is so awesome, Tricia! It is always great when a plan comes together for someone that is truly in need. Lots of good karma coming your way. :)

That's so awesome, I'm really glad that it worked out.
I've been slacking too since my mom came to visit and it limited my computer access, I have lots to catch up on.

Such a great ending to a great story. You are a great lady Miss Trish! The universe needs more like you.

Awww... We understand. Your story about the wine was hilarious, BTW. And I figured out why I threw up. I took some ibuprofin on an empty stomach and then had two glasses of wine... Smart right? When it comes to medicine and other people I'm savvy, but myself? I just don't think.

It is awesome that you did that for him. I feel like I should thank you too, weird, I know... ;)

XOXO,
Lee
