Batteries- Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them

Well, can't HEAR without them is more accurate. As if yesterday wasn't bad enough, I just got a call from Emily's school saying one of her CI batteries is not working. Bummer. We're just having battery issues this week. I did send Delaney to school with about 7 extra hearing aid batteries- just in case. And a working implant.

So, instead of spending time on the computer I will be running up to Em's school with a battery :)

On a more exciting note (probably only for me- LOL) I finished painting Delaney's room. One down, three to go. I kind of enjoy painting, but I really, really hate the taping/masking. I know, I know- they sell edgers/trim painters that say "no taping needed", but I've done that and had stray paint marks on my ceiling, so back to masking and taping I go. I think their claim is probably true if one is slow and meticulous with one's painting, but I am always quickly slapping paint on the wall while children are napping, or in school. I also like 'instant gratification'. I don't want to wait days to see the finished product. I want it done asap, so I can admire my handiwork and pat myself on the back.

My CI battery die in the middle of teaching class yesterday. My classroom is outside so for 20 minutes I taught with one CI working. I think they need to make holders you wear around your neck. I have more batteries all over the place and two chargers.

I think that's a great idea :) Although that would be something else for my daughter to leave in our neighbor's car-LOL!
