Most of the time I don’t wear my hearing aids while at home. When I go out I put them in. There’s been a couple of times this week I’ve left my hearing aids in while at home, alone.
Of course the tapping of the keys as I type is louder. Traffic on a main street a few houses down is louder. I hear car doors shutting from who knows where which makes me jumpy. My cat jumping from the couch to the floor is ten times louder and startles me. I can hear kids playing some where outside but I can’t figure out from where.
All these noises make for great distractions. I think I’m better off pulling my hearing aids out and concentrating. Back to my quiet world of writing now.
