Unexpected day off!

I have to thank ya’ll so much for your sweet comments of support and encouragement and thank you for sharing in my excitement. Means so much. You are the best!

So yesterday my doctor’s appt. was at 8:30am. It’s a good hour away so it was an early morning. I get there and it turns out the audiologist did not have me on the books. She was booked all morning and she asked if I could come back at 1pm. I was planning to go back to work after the appointment and with it being an hour away it was kind of silly to drive back home and then drive back again. So the smartest thing to do would be just to stay. So I called my work and they understood, so I just took the whole day off.

I can’t complain because I got to hang out at a wonderful mall right next to my doctor’s office and kill some time.

Had some breakfast…

This is from Cinnabon….. I have such a weakness when it comes to this and it is out of this world pure goodness and I ate the WHOLE thing by myself…. YIKES!! But sooo good, HA!!

Then walked around looking at stores and went into Forever 21. Oh, a dangerous place, so dangerous…. Ha!!! Did ya’ll know that Forever 21 has a separate store just for accessories?

Looked around for a couple of hours more. Went to the real Forever 21 store and bought an outfit. Had to have something to show for my mall time, haha! Looked at tons of other places but didn’t buy…. I had never been in this mall and it was so nice just to look around and have time to myself. I still had some time to kill and I was exhausted. So there were some recliners and couch in the middle of the mall… and I parked myself there and people watched for awhile.

Oh, yes, I was that person who propped my feet up and used the mall as my personal living room, haha!!

Then it was time to head back to the doctor’s office. Here comes to the great part of the day!!!! I CAN NOW HEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, it amazes me, the difference!!! I could have cried. It’s going to take some major adjustments. It’s like a whole new world has opened up. Everyone is so excited for me, but most of all, I am sooooo excited! I consider this such a gift and will NEVER take it for granted. It truly is the small things…. Or the HUGE things in my case!! :)

So I had the rest of the afternoon off, YAY… and went last night and got some dinner from Tijuana Flats in honor of Cinco de Mayo and I went in and they were blaring music and the place was packed and people everywhere…. And it was so loud for these ears and wanted to tell everyone to shut up, haha!!!!!!!!

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

I'm drooling over your breakfast!!

Katie said...

I'll just have you know that your cinnabon picture got me majorly craving them---and luckily, I had the kind you pop in the oven in my fridge...and that became my breakfast this morning. They are small...but, I ate (gasp) 3 of them.

I am blaming you ;)


Rosie said...

First of all, I know I've said it a couple times but I truly am so happy for you!! It must be an amazing thing to hear well again!
Secondly, you crack me up! You are so brave to lounge in the middle of the mall like that AND to eat that whole cinnimon roll! WOW! And you're right, Forever 21 is dangerous!
