2017 is running & I seemed to be standing still!

Ever since SP changed the homepage adding extras step to find and check in on groups, etc. and pandering to their APP to grant INSTANT happiness (praise, support) to the many that use the app, I have felt that SP doesn't care about my time. Silly I know! Frustrating Yes! I miss checking my groups,
Anyway. My Son has turned 18, graduated HS. Gotten notified by Social Security that as an adult according to documentation provided he is not DISABLED. So now I have the added stress of dealing with less income to. We have paperwork done to get him in a career training academy 4 hours away. We have requested the 10 day testing program. So I think this will happen in October. If he fits, and can handle it. I will be dropping him off on Sunday and picking him up Fridays every week.
I also had to renew his military dependent ID card with him in July. It was so hot, AC broke in car finally and had to get it repaired before I could even travel 3 hours away to get it done.
So I seemed at days be the hamster in the wheel. Some days I just want to be able to stay home and get some things done around the house which I have plenty to do IF I feel like doing. I still volunteer, still helping people.
So my days don't seemed to have enough hours or I need to manage my time better. I have read more books. I am still stuck and not happy with me..but only I can change that..
I got an Amazon Echo on prime day! Haven't done too much with Alexa yet. But I had a nice chat with my youngest daughter today on finances, other stuff, etc. I said to her. "you need to download the ALEXA app on your phone and we can talk to each other.." She goes, "Why? we have the phone." I said, "In case of those times of. "I've fallen and can't get up`". I mean seriously .... you can have phone problems. My phone was stuck in SAFE MODE for over 9 hours! Called who I had to call and none of their solutions was working. 3 tech support and a Samsung Tech later.. had enough hung up politely and GOOGLED. I had a stuck down volume button. A little rubbing alcohol on all buttons. then restart and all fixed!
Okay... I haven't given up .... just gonna get out of the rut I'm stuck in and make an extra effort to carve out some time to interact with my groups. Sparkers just using the app are missing out on what great groups Sparkpeople have!
