A couple of weeks ago, I just gave up, just for the week. I didn’t post, and lots of other things I let go. Some weeks are like that with ADHD, although fortunately, it’s usually just a day, not a week.
My wife’s i phone stopped working. Then the internet connections on her i pad and mine got all mixed up together.
I tried to fix them, in spite of my dystechnologica. I finally did. After lots of time and frustration.
Then my pc and my laptop went kerfluey, both at the same time. After a lot of time and frustration, I gave up and took them to the shop ($$$). Two days later they said the lap top was irreparable and the PC problem was a microsoft glitch that was being fixed. I was four days without a connection – it was hard.
Spent twice as much on a new laptop as I intended, good saleswoman.
Now the xfinity tv programming isn’t working right. Haven’t been able to fix it.
My novel, Alma Means Soul, isn’t selling well. I wasn’t expecting a runaway bestseller, but still –. Then I noticed that Amazon shows it with the categories of children’s books and religious books. Arggghh!! I’ve been bouncing back and forth for a week between Amazon support and KDP support – guess what. Time and frustration and they tell me it can’t be fixed.
Took a break and went fishing. Not a single hit, just a lot of algae on my hook with every cast.
Poor me. But when I stop and think about it, we don’t have covid, we’re not trapped in Afghanistan, I can pay for the laptop. It’s not so bad.
- It’s important to know when to give up.
- Sometimes you need to just take a break.
Personal Note O the Day: I cleaned the river 9/2 2021! Yea, me!
