The Hearing Husband and I seem to get antsy if we’re in one place for too long. Maybe we just get bored with too much togetherness and decide we need to ‘see the family’, hit the open road and climb a few hills.
This means we’re frequently packing and unpacking and packing again. You’d think we’d have nailed the list of things to go in the suitcase. You also might correctly guess that on each and every trip something ‘important’ gets left behind. Often it’s just “oh shoot, I forgot to bring my gray running shoes.” No real panic.
But if you’re a HoH like me – someone with hearing loss – and the left-behind item is essential to communication, that’s cause to break out in a sweat, yell OMG, and start tearing through every bag in the hope that you’ve simply put it in the wrong place.
