Funny Text Message

My husband sent me this text today:
I hope you didn't like the shoes that were up on the table in the Florida room.

Oops, I had put them up on the table (not a table for eating I want to make clear) to keep them out of my puppy Blondie's reach. Ha! She got into them anyways.

Resource on Hearing Loss and Work

If you have a hearing loss and are employed, I have found an excellent resource for you to use when you need to advocate for yourself, request an accommodation, or simply educate others. It's an online, free brochure titled "Working Effectively with Persons Who Are Hard of Hearing, Late-Deafened, or Deaf". This document is available through Cornell University's Employment and Disability Institute. The brochure, written for human resource personnel, describes the experience of hearing loss and gives suggestions for possible accommodations. I found it insightful and empowering in tone. If you would like to read it for yourself, you can download it from this webpage.
