I am wanting the week of Mother's Day to be the launch party for The NEW Messy Mom. The thing is, I am so nervous about having everything unfold smoothly. I don't know if the new website will be finished by the end of next week or not. It's been a ton of work. There is so much that could go wrong at this point, but I am stretching my muscles and will be getting a running start as I jump into the deep end of blogging. All I can say is expect the unexpected (such as delays, technical difficulties, emergencies, mass confusion etc.).
I'll have more blog reveal details next week, but for now I did want to mention one minor personal update.

Some of you know I have dealt with a lot of issues with my left ear. I have a constant ringing in that ear along with difficulty hearing. I also sometimes experience episodes of vertigo. It's something I have dealt with for 12 years and has gotten progressively worse. Keep in mind what I deal with is completely unrelated to SJ's hearing loss. I diagnosed myself 2 years ago after extensive google research. I wrote all about Meniere's Disease and why I think I have it here.
Although the vertigo hasn't been much of an issue, the hearing loss has started to dramatically interfere with my life. I mishear words all the time. If I am in a noisy environment where someone is trying to talk to me you can pretty much forget it. I won't be able to hear anything unless it is spoken close to my right side. J has especially noticed it and was the one to insist on me going to the Doctor. I mention in that other post about how I did go to the Doctor about this issue, but that was 10 years ago and the Doctor I saw wasn't at all helpful. I didn't keep records or seek a second opinion. I didn't know what questions to ask. Now that I am in my 30's and have a daughter with hearing loss I feel a lot more equipped to get to the bottom of this.
I saw my general practitioner on Tuesday. He's not an ear Doctor so there isn't much new information there, but on Monday I will see an Audiologist so hopefully I will know more by then.
That's my little update. Next time I get on here it will be to kick off the launch party. Definitely come back then!
