Such Is Life

Over the past two weeks I thought of several relevant topics to write about, “I should write them down,” I said to myself. “Nah, I’ll remember them.” WRONG!!!! I should have made notes on them. As I sit here straining my brain trying to remember what they were I find myself failing. Oh well that is life.

My efforts to complete the wood shop remodel after the house in a house project have consumed me, but I am anxious to begin grinding wood again on artistic projects. Then, as if my life isn’t complicated enough with the house work, the air conditioner crapped out. Any money I had set aside to finish my remodel just went out the window for a new compressor.

During my last shower I noticed the shower head spraying water from a joint all over the bathroom. When I shut the water off and tried to get out, the shower door stuck shut, and I was trapped inside. I wound up lifting the door off the track to get out. Two more incidents of life to slow progress on something that really matters to me. The days are getting shorter now, and instead of going to bed at 6:30 p.m. I fixed the shower door and the leaky fitting. I never do anything house related after our evening meal, but this was different.

It’s been a year since I bought new hearing aids and it was time for me to take them in to get a check up, kind of like an oil change and tire rotation. I had to leave one unit in the shop for repairs, most likely a new battery. The Audiologist was kind enough to give me a loner, that was nice. What he didn’t tell me is that the loner was not charged, and within thirty minutes after leaving his office the thing signaled that it was out of juice. Thank God it was only my hearing aid and not my car. All things considered, yesterday was a great day.
