So I think I am being paid back for being GREEDY! I found out that my insurance was changing and I would no longer be able to get FREE hearing aids but if I hurried I could get one last one. Thing is, I didn't NEED one...I just WANTED one. You know...for a back up? Well, it worked. I intended to get the latest and greatest but uh well they don't make any 'latest and greatest' in the kind that I need so instead I was just going to get one that worked. Fine by me. Well, THIS is what I got!

Do you see how HUGE they are? Seriously? You have got to be kidding me! Sigh... So, whereas I wanted some latest and greatest, truly what I got was a 'back up' cuz there is no way I am wearing THESE! Geez!
Ok, but on top of all that goodness, there is something else. I was told that these would be Bluetooth compatible. How cool is that!? I mean I could act like the Bionic Woman or the Secret Service! You know, just push a magic button on my ear and I could hear you talking from my cell phone? AWESOME! Ok, so HERE is what I got...!
Do you see what this REALLY is? It is one of those, "I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up" necklaces. You know that LifeLine or whatever! Ok, it's not, but tell me it doesn't LOOK like it!? I am supposed to wear this while trying to be a discreet secret service agent? Hardly! And as for the Bionic Woman, well, maybe! Oh man oh man. This did NOT work out the way I hoped it would... Just another day in the life of ME!


So, the girls and I had some free time on Sunday afternoon. I decided to take them to this place I have 'bookmarked' for a while, called EcoStation in Culver City. Ok, first note, Culver City is a s**thole! Holy cow! I had no idea where it was, then discovered it was IN East LA! Nasty area. The area we ended up was decently nice with a park across the street but the rest...uh let's just say I kept driving and driving, no stopping in this place! Anyway, so we find the 'place' and whereas I thought it to be a ZOO type facility buzzing with people and kids and fun activities, it was NOT! It was located IN an industrial building. Huh? We pulled in the parking lot and there were 4 cars. Huh? Luckily another mom and her kids pulled up right then so we felt safe enough to venture inside with them. I didn't know WHAT to expect but what I didn't expect was an hour tour in an industrial building and then be escorted OUT! Uh, ok. Anyway, 2nd note, we had FUN! It was fun. Really. The girls loved it. The girl who led us around and seemed to know everything had no personality and it was hard to understand her since she never looked us in the eyes but we got to see lots of fish, reptiles, crocodiles, snakes and big talking birds! No cats though since that room was closed. Oh that would have been fun! Oh well. So, it turns out that it is some sort of a rescue place and they are good to save them but I doubt we will go back. I mean, an INDUSTRIAL BUILDING?
