Computer Class Began

I started the computer course  at the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities today. It is really a low key kind of approach for our group of about 8 students with a teacher and a volunteer helper. Today we started with Word to make a series of posters. I have not used a PC in a long time and you could certainly tell that I was not using my beloved MAC laptop.  I was surprised at what a hard time I had just going back to using a mouse! 

I definitely had trouble following anything the teacher was doing on the screen at the front of the class. By time I looked up and focused on the screen I missed whatever the heck he was trying to show us, but fortunately that was a very minor part of the class.  The class assistant was right there and ready to point things out to me.

Once I got home I rested for a half hour, reviewed my music, and then I headed off  to my guitar lesson. I am making some very gradual progress there too.

After we finally got back to the house I aimed straight at the couch. I was exhausted.  I turned on The Biggest Looser ... I needed inspiration to just get back up off the couch again.

Tomorrow is aquatic therapy at 9 am and computer from 1 to 4 pm. 

Wish me luck.

Hey Linda - Congrats on being able to take a class. I'm sure I wouldn't be able to look, listen and take notes at the same time - or even if the notes would be a true reflection of what I was hearing and seeing. That's a huge step and I admire your persistence and willingness to take a risk like that.
