What I’m Up To

As suggested here, this is what I’d highlight if I ran into a friend I hadn’t seen in a year:

Family

  • Supporting Oliver as he moves toward the end of public school in June and helping him plan what comes next for him. We had several meetings with agencies and educational opportunities in February, and we’ve come up with a solid plan that he’s enthusiastic about.
  • Supporting Catherine as she enters her 5th year of living with metastatic breast cancer. She changed medication in February, and is getting used to managing the new side-effects.

Paid Work

  • Working remotely with colleagues at Yankee Publishing, primarily on the infrastructure supporting Almanac.com (this is my 23rd year of this partnership).
  • Planning a visit to Yankee for the first week of April.

Unpaid Work

Crafting {:} a Life

  • I’m organizing an unconference called Crafting {:} a Life, to be held here in Charlottetown in June. It has its own website.

Volunteer Work

  • Serving on the board of directors of Stars for Life, and continuing to do what I can to advocate for government support of people with autism.
  • Thinking about how non-profit organizations supporting people with autism on Prince Edward Island can better coordinate our services, training, etc.
  • Entering my last winter as a home and school member; my final Annual General Meeting will be in April.

My Tools

Inspired by Belle B. Cooper, I’ve now added this section where I list the day-to-day tools I use in my work.

Mac

These are the apps in my dock.

Mobile

These are the apps on my home screen that I use every day:

I last updated this March 3, 2019, and have set myself a reminder to update it monthly from here onward.
