I left Chicago this morning where it was -4 degrees!
While I am basking in warm sunny Florida now a few days before CPC, I am quite bummed because I had to leave Sara and Luke behind due to them still being sick. It’s been over two weeks they’ve been fighting a flu bug and Sara’s has gotten worse! And even worse, we were going to celebrate Luke’s 2nd birthday at the Magic Kingdom tomorrow. Instead, I won’t even see my little guy on his birthday! (cue the violins) At least Luke doesn’t know what he’s missing out on. He just thinks he was supposed to hang out at Grandma and Grandpas for a few days.
And then to add to the weirdness of this trip, I’ve been completely deaf all day! I’m already deaf in my left ear, and as I landed this morning my only other functioning ear was completely blocked and has remained so all day. It has been quite fascinating walking around Downtown Disney unable to hear a thing, and interacting with people to order food, etc. is strange – I can barely hear my own voice and don’t know how loud I’m speaking. I hope I’ve not yelled at anyone.
I’ve tried everyone’s advice on how to up-pop my ear! I’ve done a headstand, plugged by nose and blew, taken a hot steamy bath, drank and swallowed with my nose plugged, and even poured hydrogen peroxide into my ear! Nothing works. I’m not in pain, I’m just stone cold deaf!
So if you have any suggestions, I’m desperate! This is your chance to get me to do anything you want, anything, to get my hearing back!
AND JUST FOR FUN… here is my review of this resort from two years ago:
