I like to think of myself as a typical mom. I have to adapt due to low vision sometimes, but basically, I deal with the same things as most American moms. One thing I do that is typical is put my needs on the back burner. I don’t get new clothes until everyone else has what they need in this house for instance. I don’t mind this. I want my kids and my husband to have what they need and want first. It brings me pleasure and happiness to see them happy and to know they’re provided for.
I realized this morning though while working on my computer that there are things I need in order to comfortably see that I haven’t allowed myself to get because of this back burner mom deal and it’s not working out too well. This is my own fault. My husband supports me and tells me to get the things I need of course. For some reason though, I have not felt as if the latest Zoomtext program or a new monocular are important enough to ‘splurge’ on.
Right now, I have Zoomtext version 9.1 installed on my computer, which does not work with most websites. I don’t know enough about coding or HTML to understand why this is, but it is. I constantly turn my Zoomtext program on and off depending on the site I’m on. Zoomtext is meant to work on all sites. They have come out with updated versions many times over since I got this version so I’m not keeping up.
