I ordered some ear plugs last night. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but the snoring in my household is loud. So, I did some research. I looked at ten reviews of ear plugs. They each had a Noise Reduction Rating as well as ratings for comfort, durability, ease of use, and a few other things. I had no idea that you could buy ear plugs for over $100! But, I'm glad I did my research because the ones that I actually purchased were only about $5. I'll let you know if they work!
I'm watching Mitch Albom's For One More Day as I type this. I have avoided this movie because I have always wished for one more day with my dad, and I didn't know if I could handle the emotions I was sure would follow viewing it. So far, I think I'm going to be okay. But what I wouldn't give for one more day with my dad! Anything! Everything! It's been 9 and a half years since he passed suddenly and without warning. Here one minute; not the next. I miss him so deeply. I don't believe I have ever completely dealt with my sorrow. I think I am still in the denial stage, even after all these years. Because if I accept it, it's going to hurt too badly. This picture was taken a year and a half before he passed. (See? I can't say the word died.) He was a handsome man, IMHO!
