Edublogs has changed the dashboard (the page where the writer manages everything) so I – luckily – have a few hours to play with the new look today and get familiar with the new features and arrangements.
How are you when things change? Do you like change, like trying old things in new ways? Or are you more of a “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” kind of person? This was particularly important this past week, as I was staying with my soon-to-be-89 mother. She had broken her wrist and was out of her apt for 8 weeks so I was there helping and overseeing that she could get back to her routines of the day. She is VERY adamant about keeping things exactly as they are, and resisting anything new. Unfortunately, that isn’t healthy for her in some cases. She has a lot of medications and vitamins and in her head she did not want to use a plastic box with the 7 days of the week each with its own little space for pills. She wanted to “do it like I always did. That worked for me.” She… well… anyway. I wonder if as we get older <sigh> we get more set in our ways and see change as needless. (She is an Obama supporter, tho).
