It’s a hard question because, well, most of my time is spent fixing what’s wrong, figuring out how to do what I need, making lists, shuffling through papers to find my lists, and trying to make up for lost time because I got distracted.
Oh, right. I also have doctors appointments, PT, my “cognitive aide” who helps me rein in my wandering executive functions, and that’s just the start. Visiting my mom twice a week, writing and re-writing, answering questions and trying to get answers, and – what I almost forgot (and often forget to do) – shopping for food, washing my hair, and occasionally seeing friends..
None of this sounds particularly productive or interesting, but it sure takes a lot of time. The highlights of a week in my life:
TOASTER: Broke. Spent days online & in stores picking a new one.
WINDOW SHADE: Broke. I never got it fixed so the sun wakes me at the crack of dawn
COMPUTER: Screwy and slow as molasses.
Two hours with AppleCare & still not right.
