    Which week?
    Last week while we were on vacation we heard a cuckoo outside our cottage window.  Lots of birds everywhere.  The sound of the ocean.  A choir practicing in the cathedral in Coutances.  And in the spirit of Jewel's restroom story, I went into one in the airport in Paris and had to wait for a free stall.  The woman who came out said something to me in French, and I was able to hear - and actually understood - not the whole sentence but recognized a couple of words and understood that the stall was out of paper.

    Juicy peach at lunch today. Sounded like rain really.  Sound effect complimented flavor and texture really well

    The squeak and creak of my new apartment 😆 HAHA 
    The hustle and bustle and honking taxis of NYC to remind me how far I’ve come since Parsons!
    And being able to carry a full blown conversations with my coworkers without having to see their faces!!

    1. Light drizzle outside my house 
    2. Birds chirping away while I'm sitting in bumper to bumper traffic 
    3. Two coworkers carrying on a conversation in separate cubicles in the restroom 
    4. My coworker talking to me while I'm outside washing my hands and she's still in a cubicle!
    None of this was possible a year ago! Happy dance! 💃💃💃💃

    Hearing and replying to context with store clerks- kind of took me by surprise as a noisy environment. 
    Also hearing better on phone calls

    Yesterday I was able to use my new superpower for real:  we had an 8.5 hour flight and a toddler two rows ahead screamed for at least three of those hours (intermittently throughout the flight).  I just popped the magnets off my implants.  🙂

    Thank you @Jewel and @Mary Beth!!
    I’m looking forward to the move but the smoke alarm has me a little anxious as I try to figure it out. Thanks for the suggestion MB! I haven’t seen this one yet but looks promising 😁

    @Jewel You made an awesome list!!! Now I’ll add a few specific ones of my own 😁 
    *I recently went with a friend to see Anastasia on Broadway (for the first time since getting my CI) and could follow the entire story and dialogue. I loved that.
    *I work in apparel (Technical Design to be specific) and during fittings it’s my responsibility to take fit notes/comments to send to the vendor on pattern and garment fit corrections and I would never be able to do it without my CI. There is a lot of talk during these fittings between different departments (PD, Design, Merch) that if I didn’t have my CI, I’d never be able to follow!!
    *At work, I’d never hear people calling my name from across the room, now I do! 
    *I love that I can understand accents from around the world with very little effort
    *Music sounds the best it ever has - like a complete song not half or part of a song
    *Its been very freeing being able to talk and listen on the phone with ease 
    *I can eavesdrop on conversations at work...hehe so fun! Never could do that before 
    Thats all I have for now off the top of my tired head 😴😁

    Mine is simply the fact I can talk to people again. I was always an outgoing guy and didn’t let my hearing loss stop me while with close friends despite messing up big time occasionally but I was really withdrawing otherwise. Now I can go into a coffee shop and chat with anyone. Getting my life back! (And some new friends)😀
