Reformatting after a renovation

This should not come as a surprise to most of us. There is always going to be something for us to deal with, making sure that everything has been returned to its former spot or place. We cannot expect to have everything as it was before the renovation and here is where my memory has to come into play.

For whereas a sighted person can bring back mental images of how it was before the renovation, I have to do this as well and a bit more. I lost my functional vision before my renovation but after all was said and done, I had to use my memory to help me reformat.

I have had to reformat everything in my mind and re-image how things look around my condo. Many things are back in their previous place but for those things that have been either moved or shifted around, here is where the reformatting has to take place. In addition, my mom has redecorated and reorganized a few things and now my condo looks a bit different. All in a day's work!

Pictures have been rearranged on the walls. Dolls in my doll cabinet have been rearranged and my family room has been changed a wee bit. The ceiling in my kitchen looks quite different now but all is okay at the end of the day.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heros and role models are the ones who have made us proud, those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
