Freedom!


Well it might not look like it to you but it is freedom to me. There is nothing better than going out in the world after a week at home (minus a few days on Dani's couch). This was my first outing by myself other than my docs apt. I have driven through the drive through starbucks a few times but this is different. This is freedom. This is embarassing (for Kurt or actually anyone else watching), but not for me! I back up and go foward at my own pace. I don't even blink when I back into things & have the beep beep horn announcing that I am going in reverse. Ah yes. I am at Target riding on the old lady cart & things could not have been better. I didn't have a list. I had rules. Can't grab anything heavy (ie juice or laundry detergent), & can't grab anything else that is not kid height (no standing up). This explains how I got home and had captain crunch and pringles in my cart instead of special K and honey wheat pretzels. Oh it was grand. I parked in the front row. Sat down in my cart & went negative 2 miles per hour through every aisle. I had the nice checker man carry out my groceries & load them up while I wheeled out to the car. Nice! I am home feeling so accomplished and refreshed.
